Let's get those kids active! I am a believer in active learning and engaging students in the learning process through interacting with the lesson's content. I like to set students a task and then let them explore the endless possibilities associated with their learning. That gives me the freedom to walk around the classroom (or PE hall or field) and interact with them, answer their questions and challenge them with new one's.
