You Deliver Pizzas, Not Instruction.

I was feeling a bit creative tonight, so I whipped up a slide based on a Chris Lehmann quote that David Jakes introduced me to at Educon:

So whaddya’ think?  Are you bothered by the notion of “delivering instruction?” 

What does it suggest about teachers and classrooms and learners when “delivering instruction” becomes a commonly accepted phrase describing the work that we do in schools?  What words or phrases would describe the work that we do with students if we were getting education right?

Talk amongst yourselves.  I’m verklempt.
