This year in Room 20, I provided students with an opportunity to teach a math lesson to their classmates. Five students expressed interest by responding to a number of questions and statements, including:
Earlier this year, Jackie B. and Mikey W. conducted a lesson on "multiples" as part of our fractions unit. This past week, Daniel C., Sades M., and Sam P. taught a "units of time" lesson as part of our measurements unit.
I was extremely please with each student teacher's preparation and delivery of his and her lesson. All teachers exhibited sound content knowledge and showed great classroom management skills. In both lessons, every one of their students was an active, energized participant during the lessons. Kudos to Jackie, Mikey, Daniel, Sades, Sam, and their Room 20 students for an informative, entertaining, hard-working two hours of instruction and learning!
