Short post, but some nagging questions that've been on my mind...
How can project-based/student inquiry-based teaching and learning apply to the primary grades (PreK, Kindergarten, First, and Second grades)?
And how do you assess students through self-assessment at this young age? I suppose this depends on your philosophy, but how well can we rely on these students' interests and desires to drive our teaching at this point in their lives?
At what age level do students have the ability to effectively self assess and utilize critical thinking skills? Is there a way to cultivate these dispositions?
I would REALLY appreciate any thoughts people have on this!!!
