The best way to learn in school classroom strategy

As teachers, we all have strategies to engage children in their learning. Unfortunately, all classes are different and sometimes we need to change the strategy. Focusing children on a whole range of achievements, no matter how small, is beneficial for the whole class. The Learning Wolverine focuses on more than academic achievements. The focus is on how the child learns, not what they learn. Each achievement has its own merit as the child comes closer to being a Learning Wolverine. The video is the main part of the strategy, which can be used to initiate discussion about the best learning environment. There is also a follow up poster and child planner sheet.
