Reflection: Student Ownership Power Run - Section 4: Power Run Activity


I want students to know that they are not passive consumers in their education but rather need to be active contributors. As students take ownership of this activity, I love to take the role of observer and see the students engage in the activity and their learning. This activity is the perfect opportunity to have the students take over as the leadership roles are easy to communicate and the students can effectively fill their rolls all in a single class period. Once I gave control over to the students, they performed their jobs beautifully. I didn't have to give instruction or get students back on task. Though, next time I think I'll look for a louder ring-master.
