speakerWhat People Are Saying

When teaching, I have learned that in order for my lessons to be effective and have the students gain the knowledge, I model for the students, and then we practice it. After finishing a unit for any given subject, I give the students a mini assessment to test their knowledge of what they have learned. After reviewing the assessment I am able to go back and reteach or make clarifications about what the students were unable to understand. -- Steven Buruato
