I think there is a season for all different styles of teaching. I love listening to others when they are passionate about a lesson. In return I enjoy talking about exciting lessons I plan to do or have done with success in the past. If I were to break it down it would probably look something like this. 10-15% Direct Instruction (information, presentations, directions) 20-30% Partner Work (reading, research, projects, technology, conversation, validation of ideas or learning) 30-40% Group Work (literature circles, projects, presentations, etc) 20%ish~~~ independent (confirmation of ideas, independent thought process, book selections, etc.)
I think I need an award for teaching and surviving this long. HAHA! Bright Ideas Grant Donor's Choose Grant Winding River Teacher's Grant
