How to make school miserable for everyone involved. Have you ever wondered how to make your students less interested in learning? Are they too actively involved in their education? Would you like to settle them down into that manageable passivity where they go through the motions of taking notes, competing homework, and studying because they want the final grade, but don’t actually think about any of the material? Would you like your students to become more resentful of long assignments and yet simultaneously more in need of them because they get so little done in class and in study hall? Do your students enjoy reading, and do you need help in squelching this passion? Would you like to create students who complain regularly? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this session is for you. It is designed to help teachers and administrators steal the joy from learning and school.
