It is vital that the teacher and student become co-creators of knowledge instead of content consumers. It’s a simple concept covered in some form multiple times during teacher training, but its power is underappreciated and underemphasized. In the rush to cover the curriculum teachers often forget their job is to co-create knowledge with their students. Creatively re-imagining what has become “common knowledge” for the teacher, but is novel for their students. That re-creation should spark some new facet of understanding for the teacher as well. That was the beautiful part of teaching that captivated my wondering mind, no day, no subject, no problem, no moment would be exactly the same twice.
