What Are We Modeling?

After tweeting out David Wees’ (@davidwees) brilliant post on how We Will Never End Bullying In Our Schools, Jennifer Marten @jenmarten, tweeted this video, “Children Learn What They Live” to add to the discussion.

It reminds me of a quote from Larry Cuban, “how we teach often becomes what we teach” (I have written a previous post, How We Teach IS What We Teach, based on this quote ). We teach the official curriculum; but it is often the unofficial curriculum which we model from which our children truly learn.

By doing what WE are doing, what are we teaching our children today?

Thank you Jen and David.
