Ever wonder how things would go if the teacher didn't show up to school? This 4th and 5th grade class had a go at it for a day. The teacher, Mr. Bedley, met for about 10 minutes before school started with Brianna, the class leader. Mr. Bedley went over the day and then turned things over to Brianna and the other 31 students. What you see is snippets of the day. Things went very smoothly, but when they didn't, Mr. Bedley stayed out and let the kids solve their own problems. The students have been trained to follow routines. They have been taught to think for themselves and care about their own education. For more teaching ideas, please visit I value your feedback.

That is awesome. You really are running a non-traditional class and it seems like it is working well for the kids. I might have to try to bring this idea into my class next year - although it is with hs students. It could be really fun and engaging for them. How do they appreciate you more after they walk in your shoes?
