What if knowledge wasn’t viewed as a competitive battle for the prized “front seat”?
What if it was something students learned to share with one another?
How awesome would it be if there were a school where students asked each other for help?
There is 🙋.
It’s called MTA.
I walked into a classroom the other day and saw a child immersed in his work.
I overheard him saying “can you help me”?
Figuring he was asking me; I walked over to him to try and help him out.
But before I could get to him, someone else sprang to action.
You see, he wasn’t asking for my help (you know that moment when you intercept someone else’s “Hi”!? Ya, that was me 🤣).
He was asking another classmate for help.
And that classmate helped him.
In fact, that classmate help him flawlessly (certainly better than I could have helped him).
That’s what happens when you remove the competition from a classroom.
That’s what happens when kids are proud of what they know and want to share that knowledge with their peers.
And that’s what happens when they aren’t afraid to ask for help.
All the best,
