A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hello. I am a teacher.a writer.an athlete.a board game geek.
I don’t think learning should be fun.
I think learning has to be fun.
There’s a chapter in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer where his Aunt Polly punishes Tom by making him whitewash their fence on a Saturday. As the other boys in the neighborhood pass by, Tom is able to persuade them to do the work for him. He even manages to get the boys to give him small trinkets in exchange for the privilege of whitewashing. Tom discovered the best way to make someone want something is to make it hard to get.
