Creating a special class at a middle school is a great way to foster creativity and independent learning among 6th grade students! This type of class can be tailored to specific interests or topics, and can be a great way to engage students in meaningful learning experiences. The special class can also be a great way to bring in guest speakers who can share their expertise with students and inspire them to pursue their own interests!
