Too many times I read about teaching and I see the word "instruction."
Let's get something straight. I don't instruct. I teach.
Instructions are followed blindly. Nobody learns from following instructions. They simply comply with them.
My students learn. Because I don't instruct. I teach. I support them, strive to inspire them, and help them do things that are meaningful. I design situations for them that foster creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. I encourage them to share their learning with others in order to get meaningful feedback.
When you call what I do "instruction" I am offended.
The key to improving education has nothing to do with improving instruction.
It has everything to do with eliminating it and replacing it with good teaching.
