    Followed your link to Maricela Montoy-Wilson’s article there was something new she discovered when she realized that giving her students choices by putting on the blackboard their choices was not really what choices is all about, -What are you curious about?
    -What is inspiring you?
    -What is your plan to pursue it? These three questions can help teachers dig a little deeper in a child’s interests. Enjoyed this post very much.
