In my talk, I relied heavily on the work of Will Richardson. As I mentioned, for me, reading Richardson’s Why School? was a lightbulb moment for me in understanding why traditional models of instruction were no longer good enough and pointing in the direction of how teachers, classrooms, and schools must evolve to continue to meet kids’ needs.
For those of you who might be interested, I thought I would collect some of my favorite resources from Richardson in this post.
