A Thought for Today April 2, 2014

Screen shot 2014-04-02 at 8.43.24 AM“A typical classroom narrows our thinking strategies and answer options.

Good quality education education encourages the exploration of alternative thinking, multiple answers, and creative insights.”Eric Jensen

Mathematically yours,
