In the beginning, I stood in the middle of the classroom and taught. I expected my students to learn and apply all my teaching and somehow pass the end of unit assessment. After having to reteach several times, I realized that I should be the teacher I needed when I was younger. I realized all the kids learned and applied their learning in different ways. I then started to create activities in which the students could expressed what they learned using different modes. Some just wanted to write, some wanted to create a poster or a play! I found that the more I let them lead and take charge, the more they grew. They grew as learners, as thinkers, and they were also proud of their work!
