Reflection: Student Led Inquiry The Who, What, and Why - Section 4: Collaborative Learning Opportunity


It is always very fascinating to me to listen in on students’ conversations when they are in collaborative groups. I think learning in this environment makes it a little easier for students to try new things and take risks. It also helps for students to talk through their processes and thoughts and get feedback from their peers. Joining in on the conversations makes students feel comfortable enough to talk to me about their reading as well and begin to learn the importance of responding to reading instead of just reading the words.
