Teaching with Passion, Learning by Choice
Moorman, Honor
English Journal, v96 n4 p33-38 Mar 2007
Honor Moorman and her colleagues describe the enthusiastic response from high school students and teachers to the school's annual tradition of English minicourses--mixed-grade-level classes that take the place of regular English classes for two weeks in the last half of the spring semester. Teachers are given an opportunity to teach a specific topic they feel passionate about, while students can choose the minicourse that sounds the most intriguing to them. ["Teaching with Passion, Learning by Choice" was written with Brad Dehart, Richard Flieger, Nancy Gregory, Liz Ozuna, Lindsey Perret, Donna Reed, Amy Stengel, and Lydia M. Valdes.] (Contains 3 figures.)
