What happens in your classroom?

Teaching is so much more than someone standing in front of a group of students  and talking. Everyone sitting in neat rows, pen in hand, listening attentively.

Things don't ever work like that. There are so many variables to keep track of. And you know what, really, that kind of scenario would be boring.

A teacher does so much more. For a class to be successful, the students need to be engaged. They have to want to learn. They have to be interested in the work.

When our curriculum is managed by others, and we have to 'fit' a mould, it can so be so much harder to interest and engage our students.

So how do we do it?

What do you do with your students to get them interested in the work? 
How do you make it relevant? 
What does your classroom look like? 
How would you describe it to another person? 
How can you make explicit what is happening in your room? 
How do you use technology?

Why? If we don't as teachers tell the world what it is we do on a daily basis, they'll continue to believe that all we do is stand in front of students and talk.

Let's tell the world what we really do!
