Subject: Re: Back to Basics vs. Hands-On Instruction
In other words, the issue is NOT "hands-on" activities but
rather student engagement and interaction, a.k.a. "active
learning", which California not only does not limit, but
actively encourages. Furthermore, with all of Hake's
interminable list of references, I saw nothing yet which
argues that fully 100% of hands-on is necessary, or that 25%
of hands-on is insufficient.
In any case, I suggest Messrs. Hake et al. stop flooding
everyone with political missives misrepresenting the
California situation and re-read their own words.
