from the Netherlands As a teacher of 7-9 years old I have to teach them to work independent, self supporting: read your book and the instruction/order and start working. Don't give up, read it again, try, do something.... BUT my new class sits back, waiting for assistance, working together to get answers (sometimes this is perfect, but not always) Anybody an idea how to change this attitude? -I tried many already, but still not satisfied- Is it the new child? Having a passive, consuming attitude? Where is its curiousity? where do I pull that trigger? thank you!
