Teaching Outside the Box Instead of to the Test
by Lois Mary Fuhrman Bryant
A teacher for more than 40 years, Lois Mary Fuhrman Bryant wrote Teaching Outside the Box Instead of to the Test in response to changes she saw in the classroom after the advent of No Child Left Behind testing.
Bryant began to worry that the learning experience would be negatively impacted by this new policy, and her fears were realized when she heard a school principal say, A teacher would be a fool not to teach to the test!
Teaching Outside the Box Instead of to the Test acknowledges the importance of creativity in the classroom and the importance of recognizing that each child has different strengths and weaknesses, not all of which can be measured by standardized testing.About the Author
