What can I do to create a classroom where students feel comfortable and confident sharing their learning?
Working in a “traditional” school setting, where an emphasis of memorization and rote learning is the focus, students are prone to developing apathy and indifference towards their experiences in the classroom. Becoming an active participant along with classmates, is not only uncharted territory, but can also be an anxiety inducing and sometimes stressful experience. In this action research project students’ voices shaped and developed a classroom that allowed students to feel comfortable and confident with sharing their learning with their peers in a multitude of ways.
