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.

  1. Teachers aren’t heroes in the classroom. They are directors and scriptwriters and those who support the the students, the actors in the theater called learning.
