So it was an epic fail by all accounts. Yep. A Sunday School lesson designed for 5th and 6th graders, lead by yours truly, a high school teacher, did not stand a chance with the one 5th graders, 2 third graders, a 5 year old, and a 4 year old who were sitting in front of me. I thought it would be fine, since I'm used to modifying on the fly, but I didn't realize how differently those younger minds would react to what I wanted them to do.
A lot of focus today is spent on ways to connect educators so that they can broaden their professional learning network and reap all of the benefits that affords. But while we acknowledge the power in sharing what we do with other educators, we don’t always equate that in the same way when it comes to students.
