What do we teach?

Posted on

As a teacher there are many curriculum’s that we teach.  We teach the official government curriculum, we teach the curriculum of place based on where we teach, we teach a hidden curriculum of privilege, we teach students how to behave at school and in future workplaces, we teach students how to regard the world around them and what their place is in it.  This is not a light task.  When I think through all the things that I teach I come back to a speech given by Mark Gatto while receiving an award for his teaching.  It’s worth a serious read and think, he says a lot of things about how school works and what we actually teach.  This is something I want to keep in mind as I start my teaching career.
