Increasing Student Participation
The major role of the classroom teacher is to facilitate effective learning. Over the years this simple fact has been overlooked and even forgotten as students and teachers are focused on grades and exams as proof of learning. Lawrence designed a rubric to help students and teachers create a structure which would instil such virtues in his students as safety, trust and a willingness to risk participating in front of their peers.
He has inspired dozens of peers to develop their own rubrics for classroom management. Students have been thrilled with greater confidence through their achievement and performance because of the principles he uses.
Listen here for more details as Lawrence interviews his students about their experience.
