Lessons Learned When Classes Don’t Go As Planned.

October 16, 2015

As Brookfield discusses in the first chapter of “The Skillful Teacher,” there are often times when classes do not go as well as planned and we, the teacher, have to muddle through. Maryellen Weimer presents a specific account where students were dissatisfied with the amount of student directed learning being presented in her article “Lessons Learned When Classes Don’t Go As Planned“. It is always nice to know that new and experienced teachers alike have difficulties within their classes that they too must muddle through.
