quote of the day

"Observing isn’t the same as seeing. Our own research convinces us that educators do not describe what they see during a classroom observation; rather, they see what they can describe (Brookhart et al., 2011; Moss, 2002)."

That this statement is about educators is immaterial to me. Your assignment is to consider this point and comment:

We don't describe what we see. We see what we can describe.
