What’s Next?

I drive my students crazy. In fact, when I saw this post from 43 Folders, I had to laugh. I ought to print it off and share it with my students! They’d tell me it sounds like me!

When my students are correcting their work, I often ask them to explain the problem to me step by step. By doing it this way, they catch their mistake almost immediately, usually amid my asking them why, or reflecting their questions back at them.

They say I’m evil. I say I’m helping them learn to correct their own work, and perhaps even get it right the first time around. To see how much some of my students have grown, I’d say it’s a pretty successful method!
