Today, I attended the LLI conference in Arlington. For today’s sessions, we split half of the 90 minutes with students. Yes, this means that the first 45 minutes we got to observe and participate in a class. The next 45 minutes were spent debriefing with the teacher/presenter. I loved this unique format and I felt much more engaged. To finish off day one, I listened to students apply for maker grants from us. Though this student didn’t present, I loved their creative guitar, and I’m thinking of making my own!
