Today we focused on using reference points to determine motion. We mixed it up with discussion, videos, and little activites. I was impressed with how quickly the students caught on to the topic. They began thinking about how important it is to have a reference when trying to describe the motion of an object. By the time the class was over, they seemed to have developed a solid understanding of motion.
It is amazing to see how using multiple modalities to teach and reach out to each student. I think using a variety of methods in my future classroom will really benefit my students and my own love of teaching.
