Subject: How do children learn?
Message:
As I look more closely at student's learning I am amazed to see that setting challenges really gets students to think more critically and stretch their understanding. I am presently taking a course on Differentiated Learning as well as this course and they are really working well together. By generating more inquiry based questions for my students I find them eager to stretch in ways I never imagined. I have also found that the students I never expected to be motivated to think about concepts more critically are eager to do so. One question still remains. How do I appropriately assess students understanding of concepts when my instruction is more inquiry based?
