Experiential learning

Inspired Teaching taught me what a great classroom looks like: it’s a place where students are doing as much of the talking and thinking and problem solving as the teacher. It’s a place where students are tackling questions and problems that are relevant to their daily lives. This kind of classroom helps prepare students to be thinkers—and that is the most important skill a teacher can teach.

Teacher Feature: Mr. Morris

“I was looking for a program that offered teacher training because I knew I didn’t have the tools I needed to just hop into a classroom. I wanted coaching and a way that I could phase into the responsibilities of managing classroom.” 2018 Inspired Teaching Fellow, Thomas Morris, shares about his summer experience and why he chose Inspired Teaching.
