Having The Same Teacher For 13 Years
Think of your Kindergarten teacher. How do you think your educational experience would have been different if that teacher continued to be your teacher for every year until you graduated high school?
In today's podcast I chat with Mark Rogers, who will be starting a 13-year experiment this year. The practice is called 'looping' where a teacher sticks with a group of students for more than one year.
We discuss the following:
•how he got into looping with students
•why he's embarking on this 13-year experiment
•what the challenges of looping are
•what teachers can do if they'd like to try their own 2-3 year looping experiment.
