Collaboration is essential to the learning environment and I strive to incorporate group work into most assignments. I believe that such discussions – rather than homework – lead to better student understanding about the content in a given lesson, as well as, enhance their natural human desire for knowledge and discovery (Kohn, 2007).
The atmosphere of my classroom is a combination of visionary ideas, hard work, compassion, and respect for each other. Students have great value and their ideas are important; therefore, I work to enhance their learning in science through labs, articles, and practice along with essential social skills – like note taking strategies and active listening.
Students walk into my classroom with expectation and wonder.
They walk out on mission as scientists.
The environment in my classroom can be challenging at times due to the amount of movement and talking; however, we will all grow and learn because of this.
Expect to be challenged and overcome!
