Watching Coffee Talks featuring our very own James Alberto, the topic of progressivism was discussed.
It was important for me to take away some of his key points because he is a resource that I need to utilize and listen to in order to gain knowledge for my future classroom. Professor Alberto mention that progressivism practically eliminates rote memorization. It applies a new way of learning and doesn’t cause disconnection from the students
Progressivism doesn’t just apply to the subject of science, it is important to incorporate hands on learning for all subjects. Reasons why…
- Student Engagement
- Real world applications
- Gaining new interest
- Establish the foundations of teamwork
- Encourage “thinking outside the box”
- Providing a sense of accomplishment that students can visually see
- Retainment of information
Lets get the students involved in hands on learning!
