Education Reform From the Teacher's Perspective

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Teaching is not an exercise in futility. Teaching is not producing widgets in a factory. Teaching is not test-taking strategies. Many people think they know what teaching is: parents, news anchors, pundits, legislators. Who really knows what teaching is? Teachers. I call this blog "Teaching in the Middle" because educators are caught in what seems the middle-ground in a larger debate on defining what teaching is and what it should be. We truly are teaching in the middle and our voice deserves to be heard! Stay tuned!

Dr. James Norwood is a middle school teacher (English/Language Arts and Drama). He is very passionate about true education reform that reaches all students and all parents. Dr. Norwood possess a PhD in the area of curriculum and instruction and spends much of his time working with his school and district developing a more holistic approach to the curriculum.
