Some holiday reading that is written in kids speak, using child’s language and giving their views on classrooms, teaching and learning.
Holmes, J (1999) Learn, Think, Live – Mike Scadden’s amazing new method of learning.
I’m wondering whether I know this about the students I teach? Have I ever asked them what they think of our classroom environment, how they like to learn or how they’d like to be taught?
In most cases I make a judgement about their style of learning as I get to know them, I observe them in different situations and adjust my program and classroom in response.
What sticks out for me is the highlights for students, the things that I didn’t expect and the things that I would only know about my day, lesson, classroom etc. by asking.
I would like to read this with my class to prompt discussion and to them confidence in their responses.
