Reflection: Student Ownership Recycling in Our Classroom - Section 3: Activity

 

During this lesson, I really had to guide students towards the idea of setting up recycling tubs. I worried that I was doing the thinking because I basically had to outline that we needed a tub for plastics to recycle, a drawer to reuse paper for projects, and a tub for STEM lab materials. Part of learning is developing your own ideas - however, my students just weren't there yet with this lesson because they had big ideas, but needed a way to put them into practice. At the end of the lesson, I asked my students to explain to the class what they had made and how it was going to be used. In this video, I can really see that my two students 'owned' this experience and were really thinking through the purpose of the tub for the STEM lab! Even though I felt like I had to guide a lot during the activity phase, it paid off!
