It’s very important that students have an audience for their work, that is wider than the teacher. Today, in class, students were sharing their learning in reading. There are many possible positive outcomes for students.
Possible outcomes of shared learning:
-Memorable experiences students will take with them
-Lessons that make it into a students long term memory
-Students learning hospitality (manners) and appropriate social skills
-Learning how to work with others
-Solving community-related problems
-More engaged student behaviour
-Allows students to be proud of and value their work
-Possible mentors with other grade levels
-Creates role models
-Makes students feel special or important
-Fosters future career decisions.
