Dunn writes about a succussful restaurant, Perla in New York that found profits declining and the success that they had once easily attained waning. Perla was known as a grand restaurant with complex dishes and pricey ingredients. The restaurants owner was quoted as saying "We had a couple of choices. We were either going to run Perla into the ground or pivot." The article goes on to explain that pivot is exactly what they did to meet the needs of their changing customers.
Take a minute to read the article and think about ways that you can possibly start a conversation about a pivot in your school or classroom. Think about homework, grading, classroom procedures and daily schedules. It all has to start somewhere!
Please leave a comment and share an example of a pivot you have seen in a school or a classroom that is helping meet the needs of today's students.
Now back to packing up that cabinet. 😀
