Liberating the Genius of My 5th Graders

Angela Maiers often talks about liberating genius....EVERY student in our classes is a genius in his/her own way. A few weeks ago I was able to capture genius and I know I must share this. This is a video of four of my students running for Student Council Representative....Enjoy!

How could anyone vote after that? I know I couldn't!

Before the school year started, I sent out a letter to my students. In it, I said that I hoped to learn as much from them as they do from me. I think there was enough wisdom in those four speeches for the entire year! I am very fortunate to teach these four students and forty-eight of their classmates everyday!
