(3rd-grade students teach pre-k students)
G. Stanley Hall students in Garrett O'Dell's 3rd-grade class were able to feel what it's like to be teachers in early November.
The students were tasked with teaching preschoolers how to use a program called Seesaw. Seesaw is a platform for student engagement. It allows students to show what they know using photos, videos, drawings, text, etc.
The idea was sparked when a preschool teacher had mentioned to O'Dell that she wanted to have her students learn Seesaw.
"There are no better teachers than students who use it on a daily basis. They are the experts," O'Dell explained.
The students walked away from the experience with an idea of what teaching can be like.
O'Dell had the students reflect on their experience and he gathered the following quotes:
