MY TEACHING STYLE

I was fortunate to teach at Marcy Open School in Minneapolis, part of a federal grant in the 1970's to develop alternative schools. Some of our best practices included: Developmentally appropriate curriculum: Morning meeting (affective education, communication skills, team building, decision making, problem solving): Integrated curriculum (theme based): Whole language reading (Individualized reading); Manipulative math; Multi-age classroom (my specialty was grades 1,2,3); Cross age teaching (activities with a 4,5,6 classroom); Experiencial learning (Hands on science, role-play social studies); Frequent field trips as part of integrated curriculum; Goal setting/ student choices/self-evaluation; Non-traditional classroom furniture/ classroom divided into several learning environments.
