Goal 11: Give Students Reign #30Goals

Goal 11 of The 30 Goals Challenge 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day! Sorry this goal was a little late! I was enjoying a nice Valentine’s day!

Goal

Short-term– Let your students make the majority of the choices for one class period. Let them do the teaching and leading of the learning. Act as a facilitator.
Long-term– Try allowing your students to have reign of an entire class period once a month and if you’re really brave then once a week.

Quote

“It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it.” ~ Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man
