A little while back I wrote about letting students discover math patterns and connections on their own. Inquiry learning truly does help students do the majority of the learning.
Well, check out this blogger from The Research Based Classroom. I love her post this morning citing Piaget:
“Each time one prematurely teaches a child something he could have discovered himself, that child is kept from inventing it and consequently from understanding it completely.” Piaget
Right on Brandi!
How do you all help your students discover concepts on their own?
Reblogged this on KoolLearning.
I’ve been thinking about your question since I read it and have come to the conclusion that the art of teaching is in knowing how to motivate, engage and provide the opportunities for our students to learn. But then we need to sit back and just observe while they discover for themselves. I have a few more ideas about this on The Research Based Classroom. Thanks for this post! Brandi
