Sol Stern in the New York Sun on Oct 21:

This September’s re-education sessions for teachers drove home the party line relentlessly: Your students must not be sitting in rows. You must not stand at the head of the class. You must not do “chalk and talk” at the blackboard. You must have a “workshop” in every single reading period. Your students must be “active learners,” and they must work in groups. As one circular distributed to principals put it: Your teachers must transform themselves from the “sage on the stage” to the “guide on the side.”

Stern has a longer article on the subject in City Journal.
