Teaching and Imagination

Easing back into the RW practice after some time away. . . . This quotation, from an article worth reading in full, is challenging me in all the right ways as I prepare to head back to the classroom next Tuesday.

As instructors, our challenge is to try and imagine how people learn who are different than we are. In all likelihood, most of our students are not going to learn, think, and engage in exactly the same ways that we do. Our goal is to try and be prepared, as much as we possibly can, for students who have different lives than we do. (Jenae Cohn, PhD, and Courtney Plotts, PhD)

H/T to Eric Hudson for sharing this, in my world, first.
