am a dinosaur!
I know it and many of my colleagues whom I’ve spent decades teaching with also clearly understand this.
We are being replaced by the concepts of multiple intelligences and brain-based learning. Our philosophies of disciplined teaching styles are said to be obsolete and ineffective. In other words, the mammals are taking over. Let me explain. I’ve been teaching high school science since the early part of the 1980’s. I have many colleagues at Newmarket Jr. / Sr. High School in Newmarket, New Hampshire who have taught for well over three decades. In fact, some have taught for so long that they are now teaching the children of the students they taught many years before.
