Shift the Culture of Your Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It all started when I gave students time to read - and then share what they were reading. Simple enough, right?! This was the catalyst that sparked the change in everything I did in the classroom. Four years later, you wouldn't recognize my classes. I don't decorate the room, student choice is ubiquitous, we have time built in to personalize learning, students teach each other, and we use feedback in lieu of grades. Join me as I share valuable lessons learned when I dedicated time during the week for students to learn what THEY wanted to learn.
