The main thing we would see is that the kids are excited to learn. They come in ready to get together to share ideas about what they want to learn and the goals they have. Then they get started on their independent learning but are not afraid to seek assistance if they need it. They switch back and forth between individualized work and group activities. They are excited to present their learning through various methods that are meaningful to them. The kids all recognize it is ok to have differences of ideas, but they are still supportive of each other. We all have the attitude that giving a fish means eating for a day, but teaching a fish means eating for a lifetime. Although everyone maintains responsibility for themselves, they also understand that compassion towards others and helping out are also important.
