Want to Improve Teaching? Listen to Students.

From the article: 

Several times during the year, the Pinewoods Elementary School teacher asks her students two basic questions: what are ways that I teach you that you like or that are really working for you? What could be changed to help you learn even more? And it turns out even 5-year-olds have plenty to say.

 Just as importantly, the conversations “brought on a whole new level of trust with my class,” Emerson says. “The students realized they had ‘voice’ — for them, having that at age five was a pretty big deal.”
