STOP STEALING DREAMS: Seth Godin at TEDxYouth@BFS

LESSON CREATED BY LAURA DIAZ USING VIDEO From TEDxYouth 

Let’s Begin…

What do you think school is for? No, really! This is a very valid question! If you have never thought about the answer, may I suggest that now, more than ever, is the right time to do so?

Seth Godin: “Grades are an illusion. What is school for? Until we can agree on what school is for we are not going to get the results we need.”

Seth Godin gives an eye-opening talk regarding grades, testing and #2 pencils. His ideas are so mind-blowing and controversial that I created a TED Ed Flipped lesson so that effective conversation on the issue can begin to happen. Ideas worth spreading.  They sure are!

You can watch the Ted Talk below. May I encourage you to please click this Flipped Discussion Lesson Link.

Watch. Think. Dig Deeper. Discuss. And Finally……..
