Reflection: Trust and Respect If You Were a Question Mark - Section 2: Procedure


There are many reasons for letting the students be the teachers once in a while.  During today's lesson, I "turned the reins over" to one of my brighter students who often gets bored and loudly complains about being so.  By giving him the lead, he stayed on task, did not disrupt, felt self worth and learned from this lesson as well.  Since I was not leading, I could watch the students interactions and involvement in the activity.  The students took ownership in their learning as I facilitated.  This made for a productive lesson for everyone involved.
