  • Next message: Mitchell, Gayle: "RE: [Teacher-talkinquiry] session 3"

    Hi guys, It is always amazing to me too that when the children have more of
    a hand in their learning that we can cover necessary info in spite of
    ourselves. The children make it happen and it is much more fun for all of
    us. I liked when that one teacher (3rd grade magnet school) said that he
    has, along with himself, 23 students AND 23 teachers. Good approach. Sally
