. . .

Often I find myself in a sort of obsessive scramble to find the best way to help students learn. But the reality is this: there is no best way; there is only a way. And it changes with each student. We all have different needs and ways of using information. We all have our own thinking styles. And so, in the classroom, I must harness this diversity as an asset, rather than some sort of problem to solve. I must make my classroom hum and crackle with the richness of multiple voices striking multiple chords. I must welcome the dissonance, the spray of divergent thinking, the chaos, the mess. Learning must be electric. That's how the lights stay on.
