Question 1 of 30

How do you work with others to create an authentic learning environment?

"Learning environments can often be dull and boring if teachers do not collaborate. That is why, in my last school, I worked with teachers with different focus areas to try to make learning more enjoyable for students. I discussed with other teachers what was working well in their classes, and we brainstormed ways to implement similar learning within our own classes."
