Hello Classmates/Fellow Bloggers,
What has worked well for me is implementing the healthcare team concept. The students love having responsibility and really look forward to participating in leadership roles. Team activities have also worked well. The classes appear to love getting in groups to research and present information to the entire class. They loved choosing positions within the teams (leader, timekeeper, recorder and reporter). They spend their time wisely, reviewing the information and preparing for group presentation.
What I've been struggling with is classroom management. However, I must say that after our class on Saturday, I went back to school with a fresh perspective and things appeared to go more smoothly. I think I felt much more confident after gaining advice and support from so many of you. You all reminded me of strategies we used this summer, so I implemented more of those, as well as some other techniques and they all worked!
