What happens to a student when presented with real choice to control her own learning? She becomes a teacher and makes sure choice is a critical part of her classroom. Check out MƒA Master Teacher Tamara Parks’ talk on the power of choice in the classroom from the 2017 MT²: Master Teachers on Teaching event.
