This is a very powerful performance/spoken word piece by students about standardized testing and how it is used to define them and how much it misses the mark. If we are going to truly embrace a 21st century approach to learning then seeing, supporting, coaching, responding, teaching, facilitating and appreciating students as individuals is where the true power lies. It is where we have the opportunity to work with students to discover themselves, their passion, their interests and to guide them on their learning path with them leading more and more as they develop. Take 2 minutes and see what students think!
