Re: Starting a kids class- seeking advice & wisdom

I think it depends a lot on the age group of the kids involved. Teaching 6 year olds is completely different from teaching 10 year olds!

One thing I noticed is that curriculum really does matter even to things like class discipline. It's got to be perceived by the kids as challenging enough to capture their interest, yet broken down into small enough pieces with enough repetition that they get to experience regular success and clearly see that they are gaining skills. Bored and/or overly frustrated kids don't just learn less -- they act up endlessly.
