#Learning quote from Venspired. It is so true that much of what you remember for the test is lost soon after. Working on problems that are real to you will increase your learning in that area--guaranteed.
Flint talks about Ms. Teal's students being focused on worksheets all the time. As for me, I want to deter away from worksheets. I want my students to be more engaged and learn in a different way! No boring worksheets! The original pinner wrote: "'Right answers' may give a child high marks on a worksheet, but solving authentic problems using creativity will prepare that student for life". This is so true! I could not agree more.

Judy Singer, an autistic sociologist, invented a word to describe conditions like autism, dyslexia, and ADHD: neurodiversity. Given the advantages of diversity in all other natural areas, she believed there are advantages to neurodiversity, as well. She wanted the focus to be on the benefits of having a society filled with a variety of minds, and to move away from negative terms like "disorders".

One day, while presenting projects on this stuff, my teacher called them DISEASES. ADHD is not an illness, and none of this stuff is. They're life-long struggles and do you know how many kids who secretly have visual processing weaknesses, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, depression, anxiety, autism, or dyscalculia you just offended? I bet you don't.
"Several people requested a mind map for Dyscalculia (often called "math dyslexia"). Many students, including my younger sister, have both dyslexia and dyscalculia. Things that may seem simple to others, like number lines or chronology, are difficult concepts for students with dyscalculia."
