Reflection: Student Ownership Let's Compare Erosion Design Solutions - Section 4: Elaboration/Review


When playing the review game, I let the children choose their own leader to be the spokesperson.  Giving the students this responsibility helps them to learn how to make choices like this on their own in the future.  It's interesting to see how they chose their leaders.  Most discussed who might want to do it, while one team decided not to have one leader, but rather pass the responsibility with each question.  I smiled knowing that particular decision would not have been part of the process if I would have assigned a leader.
