Shift HappensPosted: March 6, 2013
This year was a big shift for students in our class. We made a deliberate shift from textbook learning to a much more inquiry based, authentic learning classroom focus. The shift was a challenge for many students.
Overheard in the fall,
“Can’t we just do worksheets in math?”
“I’m so excited. Tomorrow we have a double math period!”
Perhaps the First 5 Days really takes 5 months. This is due in large part to my PLN in the Twitterverse for helping me stay the course and keeping the focus on the moral imperative.
