It's now time to take the plunge, innovate the classroom and allow our children to take control of their own learning. If you haven't already given the D.R.E.A.M model a go, today is always a good time to start.
Last time we initiated the D.R.E.A.M. Step 2 is to 'Form a Research Team'. Find a group that have a similar interest in an inquiry and begin to unleash your imagination by brainstorming your ideas. Next, you split up the workload. There's no need to all go and research the same thing...what's the point? Lets all search for different things so we can bring all our ideas together to work towards our ACTION! Children take more responsibility if they are the only one responsible for it. If someone else is going to
get the same information, I might as well use that...saves me having to worry about it.
Generate student agency in your class by forming research teams!
