Don’t Control Your Class

in my room I try hard not to be in control of my class. I want each of my students to be in control of their own learning. Who is in control of your class?

This is the final line from an interesting blog post. I often use an image that says “Shift Control”. This teacher talks about how she does it.

    Cool connection between image and thoughts, Mike. It’s a good thing to think about. I spent the day planning for my Graduate Summative Seminar class in the summer. I should have read your blog first but, perhaps not surprisingly, I concluded that this was the point in their program that they needed to be in control. I can’t wait for the class, now. I love planning and I will love the class. I hope they do, too! Thanks for the fuel for thought. I enjoyed it.Jackie
