Know the content, know the students, and design opportunities for them to learn through a variety of activities and sources, including each other.
Engagement and enjoyment are necessary factors.
Rigor + relevance + high interest + fun = My ideal learning environment.
Things parents/guardians can do to help:
Be active participants in your child's life and support public education. Encourage nightly reading.
