When one walks into a classroom, they have to quickly settle into their seats before the bell rang and try to pay attention to a droll lecture that doesn’t peak their interests at all. Sound familiar? Yeah I think we all can relate to this outline of a curriculum; however, change is on the way. In the past years the ranging force of the industrial revolution impacted the education system in more ways than one. From the bell rings to the factory like production of students at graduation, but in recent times this system has been on severe scrutiny. Like the article states the premise of does a one education fits all actually work to the benefit of the students? This certainly is an exciting time! But I have experienced the individual driven assignments before in seventh grade. It was a go-at-your-own-pace math class, and I was very driven to complete each assignment to get to the next section. However, I literally retained none of the information. For the life of me I can’t remember the major concepts that I supposedly learned. I think a combo of both old and new theories could raise the success rate of the current students.
