A couple of posts ago, I linked to an interesting post by Heather Wolpert-Gawron in which her eighth graders give suggestions for engaging students in class. Mrs. Cunningham, a first grade teacher at my school, decided to find out what her group felt about ways to stay engaged, and videotaped their responses. The video is below, or you can go directly to her post here (please give the class a comment, as they love feedback!). Mrs. Cunningham and I were both amazed about the similarities between the 1st grade and 8th grade responses. (She did not share the 8th grade ones with her students.) I am also quite impressed by the vocabulary and speaking skills of Mrs. Cunningham’s kids. Great job, Mrs. Cunningham’s Class!
