5 Phrases to Inspire Independent Thinking

Small children are very curious and they will easily adapt to the expectations adults put on them. Personally, I believe in building up independent thinkers. What does this mean? In my classes I act as a facilitator of learning and I use phrases that promote confidence, curiosity and creativity. I allow kids to take independent actions and I encourage an ongoing dialogue. So, what do my classes look like? In my dance classes, I strategically setup my programs to help encourage kids to be independent thinkers. This means kids are free to explore movement throughout the class while consistent structure is provided to give a directed flow. The students and I look like we are playing on the outside, but in fact we are learning. Kids follow directions, they learn how to regulate and bring themselves back on track, they engage in the materials and ask curious questions and start to pay attention to detail. This is awesome right? To learn more on how to accomplish this, you can check out the 5 Phrases to Inspire Independent Thinking.
