Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn……Benjamin Franklin

We all learn in different ways and at a different pace.  In my opinion, it all goes back to relationships and knowing the population that you serve.  Teaching and learning is not a one size fits all model.  Classrooms should look different.  I’m a big fan of play and hands on learning.  When  I taught a group of inner city 7th grade students, I noticed that I could not stand in front of the class and have the student s do a lot of note taking.  In order for my students to UNDERSTAND  the content, I had to be creative with my instructional delivery.  Instructional delivery that reached all students which included multiple teaching strategies.  Real learning should drive and inspire you and should not be a taught as a one size fits all model.
