today we will be learning about:
Question 1 - Did the teachers behaviour affect their learning?
Each school had a separate set of rules for it's teachers to follow. Every teacher was female and were not allowed to marry or have contact with Men. They had curfews and limitations on what they were allowed to do. They wouldn't be able to smoke, hangout in downtown icecream shops, dress in bright colours, dye their hair or even travel out of town without the boards permission! If a teacher broke any of these rules she would be fired immediatly!
Question 2 - How has Learning Changed?
Learning has changed a lot! Discipline was a big thing in the 1800th and early 1900th century, so sure stepping out of line would result in Detention or suspension, but it could also result in lashing. Age, in early 1900s the age you left school was 12! In the early 1900s. Mass- produced pencils and paper became popular replacing slates and chalk. Inkwells were used heavily until in the 20th century replaced by the fountaion pen.
In the 18th century no lunch was provided by the school and everyone had to bring their lunch in metal pails.
In small schoolhouses, entire families of children might all be in the same room all at different stages, of learning, all learning in the same room together.

In an age where 46% of teachers say their homework they set requires technology, and where 94% of the students say they use technology to do their homework. 21st century education is about creativity, cultural awareness, problem solving, collaboration, inititave, responsibility and leadership. Though 21st century learning is mainly preparing YOU for the real world.
