Teaching Democracy through Tyranny

Written by Tricia Jackson on . Posted in #UCET17

What happens when a teacher sets up a government system in a fourth grade classroom and intentionally sets himself up as a tyrant? Will the students stand up to him and for each other? In this ignite, find out what happens to a class of fourth graders when their rights are infringed upon. Students learned collaboration, communication, and were required to show empathy for a group of people that couldn't be more different than themselves: the opposite sex. – Lewis Young

Giving your students the educational superpower of Wonder

Written by Tricia Jackson on . Posted in #UCET17

Wonder has the power to change the world. In this presentation, I propose several key questions and new findings about the power of wonder (can we measure it? can we grow it? how does it translate to learning?) and how it can be a renewable resource which gives students the ability to support social-emotional and self-directed learning. I will explore a new tool called the Wonderment that can bring this power into the classroom, helping students cultivate the imaginative and creative world with www.thewonderment.com – Cassia Nielsen
