Curiosity in children (311 out of 365) #blogaday

https://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2015/11/14/the-future-belongs-to-the-curious-how-are-we-bringing-curiosity-into-school/

This article stuck out to me because curiosity is something that many teachers skip over in the rush of getting through the lessons. During a whole group discussion, it can be difficult to allow students to discover the connections between concepts – I try to encourage it during my small group activities. With fewer children, they can start to feed off each other in a quicker sense rather than one student taking over. I really hope enough children are thinking on their own, and not just being spoon-fed information.
