Everything I have heard makes SO much sense. I feel like the old dog and new tricks are scary, but possible! So many years I have given notes, we practiced, they practiced, they took a test. Some kids did well some kids did not. When the final came around, they looked at the material like they never learned it. When a question on a test was different from the study guide, the students didn’t know what to do. Creating this new Hero’s Journey allows for the students to struggle in class, with peers and myself walking around to guide. I can see this happening and the benefit will be amazing! Now I just need to figure out how NOT to give away the answers so fast. Let them struggle and think first!
