Miss BR asked one day could she go to the local cemetery to do some photography there with Miss KF. Both girls were passionate about photography and had ideas to dress up (in old fashioned corsets and other interesting clothing) using the gravestones as a backdrop.
Great I thought!! Students are finally showing some initiative for their own learning.
The student tendency is to wait for the teacher to tell them what to do. This is what school is about. It does not usually matter what I want to do. This is the attitude I wanted to change.
Another student who loves cars wanted to do a project on UFC (martial arts fighting). Great!!
Today students were all working on their own projects and initiatives and they did not ask to stop for lunch and were so absorbed with their work. It’s finally happening.
