Here is a great article. It makes me wonder if our students are so detached from the process we call "education," they do not develop meta-cognition because their learning is too detached from them. Enjoy. Courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief

Why schools should revisit the roots of "education"
In this blog post, veteran educator Jim Dillon compares the concepts of educating students versus training students. He suggests that going back to the original meaning of "education" would allow schools to integrate social and emotional learning in lessons.
