I really like this! It made me think again that we may be spoon feeding our students and limiting their thinking. I would love to hear how teachers are actually doing this in their classrooms.
Hessa Alsuhail's comment, November 12, 2012 11:41 AM
Yes, we shouldn’t under estimate how well our students can think. Actually when we let them ask, we are letting their inner voices out!
This could help teachers think about their role in the classroom and in the lives of their students. Being a facilitator in young children’s classroom could make a huge difference in their journey of learning. It helps them pursue that journey using their created learning map guided by their inner motivation.

Need we say more.... a great read to wonder more about our own approaches.
