Blog Post #12

In this assignment we are supposed to create a blog post that Dr.  Strange should have assigned.  My assignment is as follows:
think outside the box

Read John T.  Spencer's blog post Shift Happens: From Walls to Gates. Write a quality blog post of two paragraphs describing your reaction to this post.  Should classrooms have walls?  Is it even possible to create a classroom without walls?  What would a  classroom with "gates" look like?  What kind of classroom would YOU like to create?

Watch Sir Ken Robinson's video Bring on the Learning Revolution.  Write a quality blog post describing Sir Ken Robinson's message in this video and your reaction to it.   


  1. I really like your suggestions, Kristie! John T. Spencer and Sir Ken Robinson have been my absolute favorite contributors to the class, and these particular posts are great! I like the questions you posed as a response to Spencer's post as well. Great work!

  2. Hey Kristie,

    This is a great assignment, but you didn't complete this blog post assignment. You were supposed to give instructions and actually do your instructions. Just go back and do that and comment back to let me know you finished. Then I can check you off as finished!

  3. Hi Kristie,
    This is a wonderful assignment. What did you think of John Spencer's post and Sir Ken Robinson's video? I have enjoyed everything by Sir Ken Robinson. He makes great points, and he is hilarious. I like the question, "what kind of classroom would you create." I think it is a question we all need to ask ourselves.
