Quote of the Week:
The best moments in teaching are when students are visibly engaged in an activity and aha moments are filling the air. Anyone without a trained eye may not see the preparation and work that goes into a learning scene like that. They may not even see the teacher, who is probably rotating around the room, answering questions, affirming responses, or just enjoying seeing uncapped potential captured, seeing learning unfolding. My colleagues and I have experienced those moments and attempt to make those moments happen for other teachers and students in the work we do. Some of that work are the lesson plans we create for teachers.
