My Year as a High School Student
Educational Leadership, v63 n6 p63-65 Mar 2006
When high school physics teacher Deborah Waldron needed to pump up her knowledge of biology for National Board Certification, she enrolled in 9th grade Intensified Biology at her school. Waldron shares her observations of what she learned: from the inevitability of starting long-term projects late at night to the realization of how tempting plagiarism can be for students. She recommends actions for teachers to take to make learning more enjoyable and homework more manageable.
