Teach Our Children

Explaining to my students
How to put “it” altogether
Without telling them how to do
An assignment
Is a difficult thing to do

Student have become conditioned
To receive them template
Explaining the exemplar
In the form of a rubric
Education’s attempt to quantify
The art of learning
Because we all know
Measures mean everything

Vague
Students need to experience
Vague
So they can make
Decisions
To figure out how to make
Decisions
We must stop being so
Specific
Allowing our students to learn to
Think
Instead of being
Robotic
