Wonderful Article for 21 century teaching

I was creating a training today that involves supporting children with special needs and individualizing for them in the classroom. I found this site from Canada; the Hanen Centre.

So many resources for supporting children with speech and Language development-both children who are typically developing and children with special language needs.

Teaching Children to Think: Meeting the Demands of the 21st Century

By Janice Greenberg
Director of Early Childhood Education Services, The Hanen Centre


Quotes from this very interesting article include:

 "To function and create change in this modern world, individuals need critical thinking skills – the ability to think about ideas or situations in order to fully understand their implications so as to be able to make an informed judgement or decision."
and
"Teachers need to move from primarily being the information keeper and information dispenser to being an orchestrator of learning where knowledge is co-constructed with the student."

This is article and this website are worth the time to read and search through.

Many Blessings,

Kristine
