Some Interesting Questions

Note: In an article on the work of James Moffett, the author identifies two of Moffett’s questions that are relevant to the teaching of English today.

Quote: “Moffett went on to pose two ‘haunting’ questions: ‘How differently would you teach if your students did not have to come to class?’…and ‘How differently would you teach if you never had to test?’ ”

Comment: For me, two intriguing questions. Ironic in the face of the NCLB law that has turned testing into success or failure of teachers and schools. Worth considering. RayS.
