Today’s lesson

Why does this lesson plan strike you as odd? Because in conventional education (chalkboard and all) there is so much structure we come to rely on teachers, leaders, scholars, and a predetermined program to “educate” us.

To some degree this works, but often unknowingly, this approach also teaches us that learning is separate from life. You go to school; you learn what you need to learn; then you get on with life. However, reality is very different.

A teacher’s core objective should not be to ‘educate’ their pupils, but rather to get their pupils to, you guessed it, want to educate themselves. With such a mentality, success is nearly unavoidable.

It’s no question that those who enjoy more, do more, and achieve more are those whose own daily lesson plan reads: “Educate myself.”

Be a Maverick,
