“Knowing how to run a room, to design an environment that promotes thought, collaboration and focus, should be one of the uppermost aims of any educator. Some absurdists claim that a noisy classroom that rocks with spontaneity is the perfect crucible for learning. It isn’t. For every outlier who enjoys spending time in a centrifuge, there are twenty nine kids who can’t concentrate. That’s not to demand monastic silence instead. But it is an axiom of the classroom that it needs to run on rules that aim for the benefit of all.”
