Amy Rasmussen wrote a piece for Three Teachers Talk: What if We Teach as if Teaching is a Story? And this– Last week I attended a professional development meeting with George Couros, author of the Innovator’s Mindset. I jotted tons of Couros’ quotes in my notebook, all important to the kind of teacher I keep striving to become: “How do you cultivate questions of curiosity and not compliance?” “Data driven is the stupidest term in education.” “Your childhood is not their childhood.
