“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.”
The above quote talks about stepping back and letting learning just happen. Today it happened very naturally. I was a little late back to class and when I arrived this is what I walked into. Watch the video. Everyone was doing something different. Some were working on their inquiry, others were reading, some were doing doubling facts for maths. This is evidence and a sign that you are becoming an independent learner. This is what I am hoping for and looking for in you as people and as learners. To be able to just get on with it, without an adult telling you or watching over you.
I would like to step back a lot more and only step in when I really have to.
