What is School? Pedagogy – The Science of Teaching

This week I am excited to welcome back co-founder Laura Hill to #whatisschool to discuss the all important topic of Pedagogy in Education.

*please note our US times have changed! #whatisschool will run at the following times:

6pm EST, 5pm CST, 4pm PST (times do not change for anyone outside of the US)

PEDAGOGY stems from the Greek word: Paidagogas meaning one who accompanies a child to his classes, ensures his good behavior in public, cares for his needs and tutors him with his homework.

This week #whatisschool looks at Pedagogy and its impact on teaching and learning.

Join us at #whatisschool pedagogy (1)

Today, the goal in many classrooms, certainly those fueled by the standards movement, has been to improve student achievement regardless of backgrounds or risk factors.  The focus is instructional, the programs designed on meeting performance standards, the importance placed on how children will demonstrate what they have learned.  While important, there is another ingredient in achieving student success, what teachers do and how they do it.
