Depends on the situation, but I really try to work on "community" when I'm with the students. Often that means trying to build real cooperative learning (not just putting students in groups). This model attempts to foster students’ academic and social growth and includes teaching techniques such as “Think-Pair-Share” and reciprocal teaching. Cooperative learning falls under the student-centered approach because learners are placed in responsibility of their learning and development. This method focuses on the belief that students learn best when working with and learning from their peers. I also LOVE assessment for learning, and enjoy creating and working with rubrics that mean something... and focus on progress. I've used the term "Teacher-learner" with students when describing my role, and "Learner-teacher" when describing their role. Of course, I'm still learning. These are ideals... Part of the wonderful struggle is to work towards it each and every day.
