I’ve been away for a month, not the best way to try to restart this blog, this year! Sorry I was quite wonderfully distracted for the last month, but I’m focused now! 😀
Last week, I was really pleased and proud of the hard work done by the students in my physics classes. They were tackling some tough kinematics problems in small groups, with little direct help from me. I was so happy that, on a whim, I started to record some of these sessions. This will give other teachers a sense of what my classes sound like. To me, it’s music to my ears! Students puzzling together over a new situation/problem, and figuring out the correct solution together. It reminds me of how climbers approach a new problem and work it out together. 🙂

I’ll be back soon with more substantive posts about Growth Mindset, the Importance of Student Agency in the Classroom, and a post about Classroom Ambiguity (which I’ll purposefully leave ambiguous for now)… and all of their connections to climbing!
