The KEY: Educating for Autonomy
How the Lead out method works
Now it is obvious
Special vs Common causes of variation
COMPARING the two methods
What do the EXPERTS say?
Readiness to learn
Readiness for life
READINESS to LEARN differences
, NATURALLY, students fall more behind.
Are you surprised that students UNREADY for 6th grade math FALL MORE BEHIND?
And consider: we are wasting students' time — when they could be learning something — but instead asking them to learn something they are not ready for.
Too many students begin their first years in school,
falling behind, year over year.
UNREADY for next year's math.
Reading FAR BELOW grade level.
Students leave elementary school,
too many UNREADY for middle school.
Students leave middle school,
too many UNREADY for high school.
Too many DROP out of high school,
believing it is their fault.
Believing too, they are not good at learning.
Lead out method
assures readiness in TWO WAYS.
And it DOESN'T WASTE STUDENTS' TIME.
They ARE learning.
Students THEMSELVES, are choosing challenges:
Not TOO EASY.
Not TOO DIFFICULT.
Of course students are READY for these challenges!
Students are ready for next year, or at the least, catching up!
Students are learning to their own ability.
We are not wasting their time.
They are learning.
I'M READY TO CHOOSE!
