The most rewarding part of teaching at this school is being able to have better relationships with my students. Because we’re an online school, I can focus more on them individually, as opposed to teaching in a brick-and-mortar setting.
One way I foster student engagement is through discussions during LiveLesson® sessions with the class. This helps students get involved and engaged with other students and with the material.
My favorite activity with my students is when we talk about labor unions. I assign some of them to be management and others to be workers. I put them in breakout rooms and meet with each group individually to explain their goals. Then I have them get together and negotiate a contract.
