If you're looking for a great blog on education, InterACT cannot be beat. It's run by a group of teacher leaders from California who regularly post thoughtful analyses on happenings in education, particularly in California.
One of InterACT's contributors is a teacher named Martha Infante. Yesterday, another one of InterACT's contributors, David Cohen, posted a little talk Ms. Infante gave at an event held by the US DOE in San Jose. I thought it was phenomenal, and worth sharing in as many places as possible. Please take the time to watch it below. Infante's piece starts at 39:54. I haven't taken the time to watch the rest of it, but if you find some other good stuff in there, let me know.
