Instead of Roz or me organizing the topics, lectures for each class, and activities, we’re acting as a community of learners. As a group we came up with topics that we...

If anyone’s particularly... Continue reading “Day 11: Classroom Management Q & A”

Day 8: Case Study Ideas

So we’ve done a lot lately! On day 6, Roz talked about teaching styles. Day 7 was a swap and share. Last week was spring break, which brings us to Day 8! I’m about to post all the standard class posts, but wanted to give space for sharing the case study ideas you might have... Continue reading “Day 8: Case Study Ideas”
