Project based learning, lecture, group work, current events debates, stations, field trips: my students are excited daily to see what the class has in store for them when they walk in. I ensure to give an overview of material and enough forms of practice and application so that they understand and are comfortable with the material and are prepared for the tests. I provide evaluative assessments along the way often in the form of creative assignments.
