Re: I'm interested to see that
Calla14, in grad school over 2 decades ago, I proposed "achieve-in" as opposed to "drop-out" alternative schools. They accomodated by switching to cooperative learning and defferetiated learning (different levels for each unit or topic of learning). I'm more convinced than ever that a complete break from the past is needed. I'll get started right away on part 2 of Middle Schools on Japanese Blocks". I'm not trying to be coy, we have a lot going on. But today we're out of school for a weather break. Hoot!

I'm interested to see that
I've always thought that middle school is where it all falls apart.  It does seem to be the unstoppable dilemma, because it seems that no matter what has been tried, they all yield poor results.  It seems the age of 10-14 is just not a good time for learning about external things, there's so much that's more important going on internally at that time.  It almost seems like a break is necessary at that time, but then it would be impossible to get back on track.  What's the solution?
