Day 6 Gratitude for Democracy!

Give students choices to increase achievement!

I have great appreciation for all those who have gone before me for the freedom to vote.  Today I will cast my vote for candidates of my chosing.    Having choices empowers me and ultimately I have a greater stake in what is happening politically.  What a great reminder that the same is true for children.  When I give them choices whether it be what kind of ball to use or with whom to work, they have greater buy in, which increases their empowerment.  Increasing students’ ownership in the learning process is linked to greater achievement!
