Sometimes I think of my
brain as a sponge (although more and more often I think of it as a sieve) but
this wonderful article from Saturday
Night Magazine has convinced me that the brain is more like a muscle...
... and as such, has made me re-think such educational practices as rote learning and handwriting exercises.
It's been so long since I've read an article that rocked my world. I must be suffering from burnout.
