  • The most important thing is to establish an education

  • how to live with one another.

  • The most important thing is to establish an education

  • through which human beings learn once again

  • how to live with one another.

  • The author of this quote, Rudolf Steiner,claimed that in the future

  • no human being will be able to rest if they know that another human being in the world is in pain.

  • How do we educate children now to accelerate this very powerful goal?

  • Teach subjects imaginatively and artistically

  • so that students are encouraged to think independently and creatively.

  • Teach so that students make heartfelt connections to subject material,

  • so that they love science, math and history.

  • Teach students to work together,

  • to forge meaningful and caring relationships with each other, their school, their community and their world.

  • Why?

  • Because the world needs people who have heartfelt thinking.

  • Because we need people who feel connected to their community and care about their community.

  • We need people who have the fortitude and the will

  • to actually to get out into the world and to do the good work.

  • I believe every teacher can accomplish this goal in every classroom.

  • Rather than animating computer screens, let's encourage animated conversation in the classroom.

  • Rather than assign boring textbooks, let's bring the past back to life through the art of telling his story as well as telling her story.

  • Rather than teaching to and stressing over standardized tests,

  • let's activate deep critical thinking and problem solving.

  • (Applause)

  • Let's transform mainstream education so that every student engages

  • academically, artistically, physically and socially.

  • So here are two academic lessons: one math and one history.

  • How do we get fourth grade students to engage and be excited about fractions?

  • How do we get them to wrap their minds around a fractioned number,

  • a number less than one?

  • We teach fractions concretely and artistically.

  • So in mainstream workbooks you've probably seen how pizzas

  • pizza slices are used to demonstrate fractions.

  • Well, if you really want to get your students' attention,

  • bake a whole pizza pie from scratch with them in the classroom.

  • Let them see the whole pizza and then devour it fractionally.

  • Abstract concepts made concrete.

  • Students completely immersed and bellies full.

  • Try teaching fractions through music.

  • So in my class, in grades one through three,

  • I taught my students to play flutes by ear.

  • But in fourth grade, I'll take musical notation

  • and time signature and relate those to fractions.

  • At first the students work individually

  • and try to relate these abstract dots on the page

  • to the music fingering they already know so well.

  • But to learn a new tune, as one whole class,

  • students must practice and help each other

  • listen to each other, problem solve

  • and get it together so they can actually learn this one new song.

  • Let's look at one history lesson from 7th grade.

  • But first who is the 7th grader?

  • 12, 13-years-old entering puberty often aloof, particularly, towards adults.

  • Also maybe self-absorbed, but often vulnerable, looking for a peer group,

  • looking for a way to fit in.

  • These young adolescents need worthy role models

  • so imagine this, the classroom is silent, the lights go dim, the story begins.

  • Long ago in a 15th century rural French village

  • there lived a 12-year old girl who heard God tell her to leave her family,

  • leave her home and go save her country from English invaders.

  • She was so commited to her vision that she defied the church

  • and proclaimed that God spoke directly to her.

  • She defied gender norms and wore a suit of armor and commanded an army.

  • She rode with soldiers into battle and put herself in harms way

  • to spur on their courage, yet she, being personally against violence,

  • carried only a banner into battle, no weapons.

  • She ultimately gave her life.

  • She, Joan of Arc, was burned at the stake.

  • 7th graders passionately relate to this biography.

  • Their thinking hearts are ignited to ask questions, to defy authority,

  • to act on their beliefs and do the good.

  • In sum, enable students to think with their hearts, to feel connected to each other

  • and to develop their will to change their world.

  • Thank you.

  • (Applause)
