Experiences and Time

Here are some of my students looking at our erosion model. They are discussing what they see. Here is the link to the post they are working on.

This is my educational philosophy: Students need new experiences to learn from, and they need time to explore the experiences.

What is your philosphy?

I LOVE A NOISY CLASSROOM.....I simply cannot stand being up in front of a group of students and lecturing them to death while they sit in complete silence.
I believe in structure, but I believe many teachers hold the reins too tightly and need to allow their students to discover on their own, and with peers more often. A teacher’s job is to facilitate and scaffold.....not lecture and assign worksheets.
