I believe in the teaching students to ask good questions. I'm a big advocate for teachers becoming facilitators of learning rather than the keeper of knowledge. Project-based, problem-based and performance-based instruction is something that can be done at all levels. Some lessons don't lend themselves nicely to these methods, but all teachers should strive to get more lessons created this way. I love interdisciplinary items.
