Here's another somewhat interesting read from one of my google reader RSS feeds. It's about finding the best parts of teaching. I left a comment on this particular post.
My question to you is what do you think of test scores in education? Have we taken it too far and made it too important, the end all? Assessment is necessary, but how much of the curriculum should be designed around raising test scores?
What do you Texans think of the new STARR test???
My thoughts are that Good teaching and Good learning go hand in hand. What do you think?
