Well, today I got to implement some of the things that I learned last week in training. It was hard to hold back and not try to teach them everything at once. We tried 3 “new” things today. They weren’t totally new but following more to the way Kagan has it outlined. It went pretty well. I hope that this continues for the rest of the week and we can add more structures to our class.
Kagan Cooperative Learning
It’s been a while, I know.
This Monday and Tuesday I was fortunate enough to participate in a Kagan training. It was great. I have heard so much about it in the seven years I have been teaching, but never had the opportunity to participate. There are many things that I will be able to use right away on Monday. It is good to know many of the things that I do already have in place just need to be tweaked. Unfortunately Monday is coming much to fast when I realize that I haven’t done nearly 1/3 of what I planned to do this week. It’s nice to take a break though.
