Reform

"The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done - men who are creative, inventive and discoverers"
Jean Piaget quotes

This quote really shows what the constructivist approach believes. I think that education, as a whole, would change if people started thinking this way.

How do we get students to see it this way?

Ask them to. Maybe nobody ever has before . . .

In history I always try to have them tell me, "What do you want the history books to say about you?"

Imagine if all of a sudden, history became the same!

My favorite quote, "Well behaved women seldom make history." (yes I am a bit of a feminist)
