16- Shift Your What? Challenge!

In this episode, we sit down with Grade 7 teachers Christine Vanderwal and Michael Marchione, Grade 7 students Satwika and Hasnain as well as Nogah Kornberg, Associate Director of I-Think. We use the recent Peacebuilders Integrative Thinking challenge as a jumping off point to talk about Integrative Thinking, valuing student voice, and changing the norms in a classroom from the teachers being the keeper of knowledge to students and teacher exploring ideas together, with the teacher as a coach along the way. Students Satwika and Hasnain share their insight into how that type of class feels different and how they see themselves as learners and thinkers as a result.
