Mr. Silva-Brown's Report Card, Part Three "What were things that Mr. Silva-Brown did well?" 2007 edition

And finally, we end on a good note. These are all the things, word for word, that the students thought that I did well.


-We didn't just read from the text, we did projects and the lectures made sense (I had a master teacher who was great, but refused to lecture. I've also ran into teachers that think that lecturing is the single worst way to give out information. I disagree. Lectures that are discussions work well. And kids often want the information right in front of them)
