I am very proud of the way my students are working now. They trust that there is something to learn and that I will help them solve the problem but not by giving them the answers they know they will have to think. I have been gradually incorporating technology into the class activities. This helps me focus on the students that really need a little extra instruction.
The students conversations in the classroom are getting better every day. They are helping each other, working together and really becoming better individuals and better scientists. I have a long way to go since I have set such high expectations for myself but again slow and steady wins the race and I want to get there and I am taking my students to victory!
