Interesting infograph comparing students around the world and how we stack up.
I heard Tom Brokaw on David Letterman last night talk about how Asian students were at the school doors before daylight and studied late into the night with flashlights. I have a hard time getting my students to do two or three little practice activities for homework that should take them no longer than 10-15 minutes. What can we do differently to motivate our students? I don’t know the answer to that question but if we don’t figure it out we’re going to be in big trouble in this country one day.
