Classroom is theater.

classroom is theatre 1

When I was young, most of my teachers made us students memorize trivial information. I topped quiz bees because I could remember most information we were asked to memorize.

I found that my nephews are still required to memorize information they do not understand. I found out that they still quizzed on Roman Numerals. I am not sure where they can use that and I know that their teachers do not know either.

classroom is theater
Your classroom is theater – and you the teacher is the playwright.

No amount of trivial facts can make a person a leader. When a teacher require students to memorize useless information, he is stealing the dream of students.

A classroom is theater. There you help the student see the stories of possibilities. You help them feel the characters they play. As a teacher, your role is not that of an actor. You are a scriptwriter and director.

Go beyond spreading information. Teach students by bringing them to the theater of the future.
