What are YOUR thoughts?

I was fascinated by this video for a few reasons:

1) The drawings are amazing! I could watch this for days!

2) I wondered if I'm one of those teachers that believes all students should be medicated.

3) I know the creativity is dwindling in my job.

4) The drawing skills are amazing ... do I have ADHD?

5) I believe standardized tests have made great teachers wonder what in the world they are doing in the classroom. And more importantly, why do we care about "1 test that tells what my students can do on 1 particular day"?

Thank you for sharing. Great content. Should be required viewing for anyone running for the school board.

Interesting video and I have so much to say on this that I don't think I could leave it all here. It's so frustrating to know that our current model is not working, but I have yet to hear a good alternative.

Oh my gosh, you took the words right out of my mouth. Being a creative person I always struggled with tests. I always wondered if their was a way to give standardized tests to kids who learned differently.
