    • Hi Lauren, I love this article. Quality of education is dropping around the nation and I believe this is an important issue. I love how you researched this topic and backed up your thesis with solid evidence. In the first paragraph you mentioned that kids are disengaged, but why? I think telling your audience why kids are disengaged might be a point you might consider adding. Otherwise, really great job with evidence and explanation. I look forward to hearing what teachers have to say about the situation.

    • Hi Lauren,
      Is a performance based classroom like traditional while task-oriented is montessori? I hope you enjoy going to a middle school and looking at how the students are engaged. I feel like the pressure that is set on students leaves us without wanting to engage in the classroom. Our brains are on overdrive most of the time and seven hours of full concentration on not what we want to learn about is hard. I can see why many students aren’t engaged in class.

    • Lauren,
      I really liked your post. You seemed to have learned a lot of stuff. I also found it interesting that 60 percent of students are not engaged. I was in a Montessori classroom and found it to be a very good fit for me, but not everyone is the same. Good luck on interviewing teachers!
