As a teacher, I find that I practice the same kinds of sharing, reflection and inspiring dialogue with my peers, though my art is not painting, but teaching.
Some of the conversations I’ve been reading recently point to the fact that many schools, districts and educational leaders look at teaching as a scientific algorithm; something that can be pared down to scientific data-based methods.
So, I wondered, is teaching an Art or a Science? I decided to poll my colleagues.
I’d be interested in hearing what you think in the comments as well. I think I will put my own opinion there because I don’t want to prejudice you in the direction I would vote.
