What Teachers Say

Listener Clara Maxcy says

Excellent post. This is exactly how I feel about what I want to do in my classroom this year. I want to encourage student conversations; let students develop and take ownership of how they learn. It is truly about knowing my students, who they are, what they need (and don’t need – I’ll have to remember that sometimes I just need to get out of the way!) and the best ways to facilitate learning. Thanks, Josh!
