Kimberly O'Brien replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys Chapter 14 Single-Sex Schooling in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Kathy, I like that you're calling Peg to task on factoring out students' desire to learn. It seems the harder we try to get kids on board, the more they resist. There is a psychological aspect to turning your nose up to something that is…"

Kimberly O'Brien replied to Jennifer Luff's discussion Whatever It Takes - The Lottery in the group Somers Point Teachers
