Reflection: Lesson Planning Creating a Banned Book Infographic - Section 2: Introducing Infographics


I learned an important lesson from my friend Michael LoMonico, senior education consultant at the Folger Shakespeare Library: Showing kids tech tools, even when we teachers haven't completely mastered them, is a good idea. Kids have skills I don't possess. I learn from them. If it weren't for my students, I wouldn't know how to use Google, how to embed videos, etc. The list of what i have learned from teenagers is long and varied, so I don't worry about what I don't know. I just worry about offering students opportunities for creative expression. I worry about them feeling stifled by formulaic teaching and the one-size-fits-all mode of education.
