Comedian Don Novello’s character Father Guido Sarducci proposes a five minute university to teach only the lessons that the average student will remember after five years of graduation.
- What are the most important lessons you remember from high school or college?
- What lessons do you hope your students will remember five years after they leave school?
- If students forget most of the things they learn in school, what is the purpose of school?
- What practices do you have or can you implement to help students remember more?
