Leave No Child Standardized

I wonder what a Wal-Mart would do given a dictum to “Leave No Shopper Behind”.  Would they standardize and narrow the selection of their stock or would they increase the variety to ensure something for everyone?  A brief glance at a “super” store reveals the answer to that question.

While I’m not advocating for the Wal-Martization of our school systems, I do believe that diversifying educational experiences needs to be paramount to all reform efforts.  Just as biodiversity strengthens ecosystems, experiential diversity strengthens classrooms, schools, and individual students.  At the same time, I’m not arguing for a mile wide and inch deep survey approach either.  In-depth exploration of concepts using differentiated methods ensures that students build skills while still being supported and valued for their individuality.

We need to focus on creating a curriculum of relevance that engages students in applying the skills they need to know in ways that help them construct knowledge.

    I have realized that in video cameras, unique sensors help to concentrate automatically. The actual sensors with some cams change in in the area of contrast, while others make use of a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low light. Higher specs cameras at times use a mixture of both models and may have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ any face while focusing only on that. Thank you for sharing your opinions on this web site.
