Every student has a talent that we can uncover if we keep our eyes and mind open. If we teachers were able to harness a fraction of the talents our students possess, we’d find enough creative energy to power our classroom for the entire school year.
I love how this teacher chronicled the sometimes painful shift from a teacher-centered to a student-centered classroom. I also love how this shift changed the dynamic so that students who might have melted into the background or felt like failures had the opportunity to share their talents and shine. Share this with teachers when they want to know WHY they should make this kind of change.
