5 years as a middle school teacher!
In the classroom, I believe it should be: *student-centered *open discussion *higher-level inquiry *technology integrated *differentiation for learning needs and styles *with proximity *a mixture of formative and summative assessments *room for improvising, adjusting, throwing out, or pushing lesson plans *interactive and debatable *a melding of reading and writing *fun, yet productive *multi-media *relevant *collaborative *innovative
