Teach the Whole Child

Thom's book, teaching that Matters - Engaging Minds, Improving Schools

By Robin Loving

Society cannot overemphasize the importance of paying attention to the whole child when educating, according to author Frank Thoms. The emphasis on external testing narrows the scope of what’s necessary to offer and instill in children. Such testing also restricts the teacher from fully teaching.

Rotary Presentation

Free

Come to Rotary Tuesday, March 1, at 12:30pm to hear more about Thoms’ educational philosophies developed over a lifetime of international teaching, training, and consulting. The presentation will be at Hotel Misión, Salida a Queretaro 1. It will be free and in English.

A teacher, educational consultant, television commentator, and writer, Thoms has taught in the US, England, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Mexico. He believes that to educate is not to provide but to bring out the best in each student. Thoms has a passionate desire to encourage teachers and principals to activate learning despite the pressures of high stakes testing.

Thoms’ books include Teaching that Matters: Engaging Minds, Improving Schools; Teaching from the Middle of the Room: Inviting Students to Learn; and Exciting Classrooms: Practical Information to Ensure Student Success. Some will be available for purchase at the meeting.

Rotary unites neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens for the common good.
