As I watched this weeks video, I realized that this is very much the way I teach. I am all about my students being locked in to whatever benchmark we are covering. I am always looking for new and inventive ways to hook my students so they truly get the main concept of the lesson we are working through.
PowerPoint keeps coming up in almost all of the videos as a vital tool. I couldn't agree more. I especially like the idea of the students using what they are getting from the lesson and what they see to construct the PowerPoint. I think it is very important to nurture students creative side and to give them the opportunity to wow us (the teachers) more than us wowing the students!
