Reflection: Student Ownership Procedural Text: Designing a Project - Section 3: Sharing Ideas


Students were eager to present their ideas.  Once a classroom environment of acceptance and respect is established, students are not shy about making mistakes and learning from them.  In this case, one student gained confidence and enthusiastically shared his project to design a car (see source).  This same student was once shy and reserved.  I have seen growth both emotionally and academically in my students as a result in allowing self-expression and sharing in a nurturing environment.  Thus, students develop a positive attitude for learning, no matter how complex or rigorous.
