The Curiosity Shop @ McDonogh School

Welcome to the blog at The Curiosity Shop at McDonogh School (Owings Mills, MD). This is a space for ideas, questions, proposals — anything, really — that has to do with what makes for the very best education. Our world is full of books, articles, and news stories about how teachers teach and children learn. As so many thought-leaders maintain, none of us knows what the world will be in the next five, ten, or fifty years. And we certainly don’t know now what students will need to know then. That’s exciting and, for teachers at least, daunting. I hope that this space will be another meaningful voice in a very large, evolving conversation.
