Imagination

Today I was fortunate enough to have the misfortune of sitting-in on my coworker’s class. Fortunate because observing her would lead me to new understandings about teaching, I presumed. I began to understand that these classes can be conducted in less structured ways than I had originally envisioned. She talked with her students. She engaged them. There…
