Fifteen years as a middle school language arts instructor.
I show my students how to properly do a task/work through a problem and then I'll let them master that task or problem solution; it's important that my students can independently solve similar problems by using and adapting demonstrated methods. Otherwise, I'm the sage on the stage.
