“Love the Daily Dazzle materials! I have used them for years now and there is nothing better for language arts. This year I purchased the writing materials, Creative Writing, Expository Writing, and The Book on How to Really Teach Writing and they are just as amazing. I will not teach without them!”
— Jackie Knupp Johnson, Alaska State Teacher of the Year, 2010

Independent Learning in Language Arts

Razzle Dazzle Learning Co. materials make teaching language arts and writing as productive, interesting, and stress free as possible.

All of the materials are student directed so children learn to be independent learners. When students are independent learners the teachers/parents have more time to focus on facilitating, rather than on teaching language arts and writing. Students feel empowered and become more successful, while the parent/instructor becomes a guide, coach and cheerleader.

What to say? What to say? Speaking my mind on student directed learning.

I have to say that blogging is not my strong suit.  I love to write curriculum and seem to never run out of ideas, but when it comes to blogging I am often at a  loss.  Today I have decided to just let if flow.

Anyone familiar with me or uses my curriculum knows that I believe in student directed interactive language arts materials because I found that students that are involved in all aspects of their learning are much more successful.  I discovered this the first time I passed out my newly developed scoring guide for my students to use to evaluate their weekly creative writing assignment.  They were very receptive and even excited at the idea of grading their own writing.  As I was collecting the finished assignment, my students were commenting on how much more they enjoyed the lesson when they got to grade their own papers.

One student stopped in after class and said, “Mrs. Darling, I never really understood how teachers graded my papers until today, plus I knew exactly what you expected me to do. I get it now and feel like I wrote a much better paper!”

That was all it took to convince me that I was on the right track, and I have not looked back since.

Today’s blog is just me rambling and sipping my coffee.  I hope you all have a great day!
