  • Next message: COLETTE DRYDEN: "Re: [Teacher-talkinquiry] Taking this workshop alone!"

    Kimberly,
    I am taking the workshop on my own. I usually start off by using a KWL
    chart so that I know what the kids already know about the topic and if
    there is any misinformation. I also let them know that I will be
    exploring and learning right along with them. This is hard for some
    students because of the perception that "teachers know all of the
    answers"! If I have an idea what the kids know and any misconceptions I
    can help guide their inquiry when they start to get way off base. I want
    them to have some success. If they don't have at least a little bit of
    success then they lose interest in the exploration. It is sometimes hard
    to step back but it gets a little easier with time. There are times when
    I have gotten so involved in what the kids are doing I lose track of
    time! It can be an exciting journey for all of us.

    Cheryl

    Subject: [Teacher-talkinquiry] Taking this workshop alone!

    Hello,
    Is anyone else out there taking this workshop alone? I wanted to ask
    someone about "letting go." I am finding it hard to let go of the
    curriculum that I am accustomed to teaching! It is a whole new way of
    thinking for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting started
    on a
    new unit? How do you start out? Do you just throw materials out there
    and
    let the children lead the way? It seems so foreign to me...
    Thanks,
    Kim
