💬 Designing school when students have the Teacher’s Copy

Design with care. Imagine activities that your students will enjoy. Build trust where you can. Be present, even in your assignments. Do longer term-style assignments where your formative feedback applies to their work. Talk to them about why you love what you know. Try to encourage them to care about what you know. Hold on.

Dave, I really enjoyed this reflection, in particular your point that right answers encourage cheating

If you give any question to a student that has a clear, definitive answer, you are tempting them to cheat.

  1. There is no truer statement than this: “If we are only delivering content to our students, what is the value add we are providing as instructors?” We need to show students the “why” the information we deliver is important, “how” it impacts their lives and ask them “what” they will do with said information – and show them we care about their learning as well as what we know!
