Alfie Kohn Picture

Alfie Kohn (alfiekohn.org) has written extensively about teaching, parenting, education, and schooling. In this thought-provoking podcast, Alfie says we must be clear about our shared, long-term goals for children before we can describe what good teachers do in the classroom. If we want thoughtful, life-long learners then we would want teachers who encourage their students to be questioners and challengers and in control of their learning -- not passive receptacles of facts.
