Hello and welcome to my weekly blog on education to be updated every week on Saturday.
As an educator I look for feedback and want to know what is working and what is not in the classroom. Sometimes when the discussion in class is active enough and more and more of the students are listening and giving me feeback right then and there I find out what is working.
Unfortunately, there are too many students who are not actively engaged in their own learning. Therefore, to get any feedback from these kinds of students is difficult at best. I am hoping with this blog post to get some feedback from former students.
I need to ask these questions of my former students, to whom I will give the link to this blog:
If you often were not actively engaged in your own learning process, zoning out so to speak, could you pinpoint some the reasons for this?
What were the unique challenges of your high school career?
What kinds of lessons helped you to learn the most?
What kinds of lessons have been useful now that you are out of high school?
Please post any answers as comments.
