1)Engaging the Learner

2)Organized Chaos

This teacher uses somes techniques and teaching strategies that I use in my classroom.  Students love learning in new and exciting ways. The only thing I would worry about is what the kids are ACTUALLY saying to one another. I would definitely have to walk around the classroom to make sure the kids are not saying “Blah..Blah…Blah…Charlie Brown talk!” to one another!

What do you think about the techniques and strategies used during this lesson?
