Text: “The Ignorant Schoolmaster Five Lessons in Intellectual Emancipation”

The teachers at E.N. White School in Holyoke Public Schools (MA) are receiving a full training in Pre-Texts. Although they were uncertain at first, we can say that they are all enjoying themselves as they become more familiar with this wonderful educational protocol, but isn’t that what happens to many of our students?

At first they were surprised by the difficulty of the text but thanks to Pre-Texts, we have managed to internalize every sentence in it.

Also, thanks to the Tangents we are sharing, we are getting to know each other better and learning from each other.

Below you can see pictures of the first 5 sessions.

Every educator knows the importance of connecting classroom knowledge with field trips. We have carried out our peculiar Amoeba Tour within the school facilities, but the result could not have been better, as everyone has connected with the objective of this activity. Don’t miss the video!
