I always find that giving my students choices and introducing them to a
WIDE variety of techniques and approaches to a topic consistently yields
a happier and more productive classroom. I love seeing how they mix
and match the different media, processes, and techniques together. Kids
love to feel like they have a say in their learning environment. There
are so many ways to skin a cat, let them find their way. Just be there
to guide and encourage, question and respond, make them think. Let them
think!
