Most students learn by doing. Two major functions of education are the development of students’ ability to think critically and the development of their ability to perform independently. The use of indirect teaching methods can help students improve their critical thinking and performing independently. By involving students in whole class discussions and small group discussions, students’ thinking is stimulated to help them articulate their own ideas, and listen to others ideas. The role of the teacher is to act as a facilitator, and build a close working relationship between the teacher and students to help promote learning.

I am currently in my 8th year of teaching and couldn’t see myself in any other profession. My goal is to help students reach their highest potential. Middle School Language Arts is the forum for students to explore and understand the past, present, and future through literature and writing. I hope through encouragement, support, and fun, Language Arts will successfully educate and hopefully inspire our young writers and readers to become authors.
