Joe Bower’s blog ‘for the love of learning’ “I am not the same teacher I used to be. When I started, I was very focused on power and control. I assigned loads of homework, dished out huge penalties for late assignments, assigned punishments for rule breaking behavior and averaged my marks to get a final grade. I did some of these things because I was trained to do so in university. However, most of these teaching strategies were being done mindlessly, and like a lot of teachers, I was simply teaching the way I was taught.” Joe Bower’s blog focuses on abolishing grading, abolishing homework, rethinking accountability, rethinking discipline and rethinking lesson planning.
