Students’ View of Great Learning

How can high school students contribute to our understanding of great learning and teaching? Take a look. Students at The Pomfret School take the period between Thanksgiving and Winter Break for a three-week inter-session focusing on areas of passion. One group is interested in teaching, and they learn by doing, with elementary school students.  This year in my Skype session with them I asked them to record our conversation on the white board at the back of the room.  Blow it up and see how much students can articulate in just 30 minutes about what makes learning great!  In person or remotely, every time I get to work in this way with students I am move convinced that all of the answers to great learning are already in the classroom; we adults just need to let it grow.
