Student Led Activity

Today in class, Ashley Kirk asked us to reflect on our experiences in Bread Loaf here in Santa Fe. See the Activity description here:

Based on this question, I would have to say that I have been especially pleased and feel rewarded with this teaching experience because the students who come to Bread Loaf are extremely self-motivated, intellectually curious and value their roles as educators. For these reasons, conversations about class material is never limited to the walls of the classroom, but extend to extracurricular activities that include hiking, symposia, meals and guest speakers.

  (Me, students and faculty at Symposium)

Students genuinely seem to value these opportunities to "nerd out" on the material we discuss and speak with like-minded professionals about concerns they have for their classroom practices and how incorporate their learning into the pedagogy and curriculum.

Here is the pdf from the Google doc collaborative narrative activity.
