Again, what a great motivating video.
Have the guts to confuse the students!
Students' questions are the seeds of new learning !
Curiosity to ask hard questions
Embrace and not fear trial and error
Embrace the mess - learning is ugly!
Embrace why! Keep the kids engaged.
This connect with the student led discussions in the class - let the kids decide which discussions to join. It may not work great the first time but embrace the mess. I think this will be a great idea for literature circles. Edmoto and twitter will be two pieces of technology that will help keep units engaging.
