Challenged, yet invigorated

I have been both challenged and invigorated with my teaching of the Integrated Studies class. It has been a lot of work to integrate the big ideas of world history, Christian living, English Language Arts and the History of Scientific Thought into cohesive lessons. I find that the students are engaged and beginning to ask good questions. I can see in their faces when they understand some of the bigger connections that we are making in class. They are starting to share more in their writing, too. It has been good, also, to include a number of physical participation techniques to keep the students actively involved. Still, all this means that I am putting in some long hours planning and preparing for the interactive learning experiences – but I am noting that it is worth it!
