17 years teaching Gifted Social Studies and Language Arts, 6th and 7th grades
It is my belief that children learn by doing, not by filling out worksheets and test prep. They need to have choices within the curriculum and work collaboratively, but be able to voice their own opinions on a subject. I incorporate project based learning and use the higher levels of the DOK chart when crafting assignments. I believe that children will rise to the occasion if given the right opportunities.
