I'm joining with The Primary Gal for her Learn Like a Pirate study!
I want my students to be truly independent problem-solvers, and thinkers, without having to rely on me for every decision.
This is something I think everyone needs to work on-to often, my students give up too easily, without wanting to put in the hard work and persevere! This is something we will definitely be working on next year!
I still have some concerns-as most teachers, I do like being in control-and I do think that there are some things that the teacher needs to have the final say in-but that's the next chapter!
This was my big takeaway from this chapter-and I agree wholeheartedly! If we don't have this, our classrooms can't run effectively-no matter what we do!
We're there to create a safe environment for our kids-and they need to feel this! This is something that every teacher should be on board with. It definitely helps your classroom run more smoothly when they do!
What are your thoughts on a student-led classroom?
