Reviewer Comments:

This is a creative beginning of the year lesson that could be used in a variety of subject areas and grade levels. Students participate in an experiential exercise in which they make and share observations about their teacher by examining his or her office. The lesson serves to allow the students to learn information about their teacher which personalizes the classroom environment, and it also sets up the instructional model of learning through discovery. Roles of the teacher and students as well as the merits of learning through discovery are identified as discussion topics at the end of the lesson. It would be valuable for the teacher to make concrete connections as to how students will learn through discovery for the particular content area.
