In The researchED Guide to Educational Myths, editor Craig Barton busts the most damaging myths in education, such as the differentiation myth, or as Robert and Elizabeth Bjork argue, the myth that blocking one’s study or practice by topic or skill enhances learning.
Are you accepting what you are told, what you think, and what you perceive to be the common consensus without question? Confront those myths – and be a better educator for it.
