I apologize in advance for the title of this article. I think I’m clever when I’m clearly not…
Today, we visited Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary school in Lexington, Kentucky.
One thing that we’ve learned on this tour is how to tell what quality of school we are at. When the time for questions-and-answers come, if the kids are engaged, inquisitive and just popping with questions, it’s clear that the teachers are doing their jobs really well.
At a few schools, the teachers themselves didn’t even have any questions! Now, I’m honored if we gave SUCH a good presentation that there just aren’t any questions left to be answered. But that’s impossible. Kids should always have questions— being nosey is a good thing, when it comes to learning.
Anyway, today’s school visit with the kids in Lexington prompted some of the very best questions we’ve received. So I can see why this school received a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award.
If we are planning to visit your school, please talk with the students about our visit prior to our arrival. Discuss with them some questions that they could ask of authors! It really does make the learning experience better for us all…
Here is today’s video update…. be sure to visit tomorrow– we have a day off so we’re exploring the Smoky Mountains.
