Next month I will have the pleasure of working on curriculum mapping with Heidi Hayes Jacobs for two days in New York City!
With this opportunity in mind, I decided to rewatch her TED Talk from a few years ago. One of her lines caught my attention:
“Every textbook, in every school, that’s in paper, is dated.”
So, I ask myself, in general…Are we (educators) being a bit melodramatic when we talk about the struggle of having to instruct with outdated textbooks?
