Reenvisioning How to Teach 4th Grade

Katie L LaBrosse
The list author says: "I am on a journey to reenvision what my classroom can be. Through exploring leadership, creativity, history, and other subjects, I hope to provide a learning organization where my students can maximize their abilities and be inspired everyday. I look for readings which move the teacher from "holder of all knowledge" to coach, or facilitator of student learning. I enjoy rethinking the knowledge I am teaching to my students, for example, from who's prospective is history told? How may the ideas in my curriculum change with an ecological perspective? Currently my list is a work in progress."
