Argot consists of words and phrases that intentionally or unintentionally misdirects attention away from increasing learning promptly and sometimes dramatically, the primary reason education and schooling exist.
When strung together, argot of educators appears to form “word salads.”
We’ve revised a list of samples of the argot educators use. The list identifies vocabulary consistent with common descriptions of learning reported by experimental behavioral and social science researchers for over a century.
Argot directs attention away from such scientific descriptions and their potential consequences when used by educators.
