Thinking About Choice

     I think that most educators can agree that providing our students with choice can be incredibly beneficial, in and out of the classroom. This level of choice can be regarding instructional set-up, groupings, seating preferences, assessment options, etc.

     How do we, as educators, balance how much choice to allow while still managing our classroom? What about our students who seem to continually make the wrong choices? What do we do with students who continually change their mind and seemingly "waste" time bouncing back and forth between different choices?

     Yesterday the TED network shared this 8-video playlist regarding the idea of choice and I played through the videos while doing housework. There are some interesting insights about choice that I think would be beneficial for educators before heading back into the classroom.
