Is the Learning Lost or Found?

As we wind down another school year in a pandemic, there seems to be lots of buzz words thrown around as we think of the upcoming school year. LEARNING LOSS are a few of them. In this episode we talk about the danger in starting the year off thinking that our students loss learning. If nothing else, the world taught us more than we could have ever imagined. Eighth-grade teacher, Elizabeth Lacy Shoenberger and I dig deeper into the false ideology that our students have loss learning.
Let me be clear, I do believe in the idea that the school year or lessons have been cut down drastically, hence “unfinished learning” but I want to point out that one focuses on the student being the issue and the other acknowledges that the system has to own it. Two very different paths. During the Educator Collaborative Spring Gathering, Elizabeth, Chris Lehman, and Dr. Keri Orange-Jones unpacked this concept even more! Here is the link to the session: .
