In response to the 6/22/2011 post, “TASSP / TASB Wrap Up,” the Big Easy writes: As I reflected on this blog something just came to me that seems a bit of a paradox, and yet, is interesting enough. I have read, “It is not about what you learn. It is about how you learn it.” So does this mean that learning is not like scoring in an athletic contest, but is in fact as much about style points? Not so fast. Is it about how you score – touchdown vs. field goal, homerun vs. squeeze play, three point shot vs. layup? How you score (learn) assumes that scoring (learning the right “stuff”) took place. So the question becomes “How do you hit a homerun in classroom?” LYSers know the answer. SC Response After reading your comment, up is down… right is left… Make it stop. I think I know where you are going with this. It is one thing to just know the fact (scoring). It is another thing all together to connect facts, create meaning, and communicate revealing questions and understanding. Which is why the LYS Nation continues to separate itself from the masses. Others are operating on varying degrees of autopilot and panic (more of the same and “fix the broke kids” programs). The LYSer is engaged in purposeful application, driven by analysis and synthesis. Evaluated though the lens of student performance (style point capacity building). Think. Work. Achieve.
