"By... [selecting] the youths of genius from among the
classes of the poor, we hope to avail the State of those talents which
nature has sown as liberally among the poor as the rich, but which perish
without use if not sought for and cultivated."
"Delivering literacy--even on the high level appropriate to a knowledge society--will be an easier task than giving students the capacity and the knowledge to keep on learning, and the desire to do it."... "All it requires is to make learners achieve. All it requires is to focus on the strengths and talents of learners so that they excel in whatever it is they do well." But schools do not do it. They focus instead on a learner's weaknesses." Peter Drucker

the Bell Curve
2Critical Thinking Skills development begins with knowing the relevant basic information related to the analysis. Then one or more related analytical processes sometimes called models (outlines, formulas, diagrams, schematics, graphs ... ) should be developed. Resulting materials is then compared and contrasted and a final model chosen and improved upon.
For many students, an outline will begin the processes.
Depending on student skills and desires,
3 Proposed Reading Method
Students go to their reading computer and begin with Jack, Jill went ..., and then they choose an option like animals, dance, dolls, Relegion, rodeo, sports... Then the computer takes over and sets the reading level and material to be read for each student based on what they want to read, how fast they read and how well they read based some continuing process measuring comprehension. Eventually students read some desired subject matter but only after achieving reasonable success.
Progress not achievement will be tracked. There is no hurry. The only issue is the ability to read well enough to continue the process. If a student cannot continue, special personal attention is required. A 7th grade reading level at H.S. graduation is OK if desire means continued reading.
Computers are the real problem. They help the strong academic students and poor students just fall more and more behind. Computers enhance our "winner take all society."
Interpersonal Intelligence is under construction.
