When teaching in the flow you have hit the Sweet Spot.
When students follow your trail of learning breadcrumbs you have hit the Sweet Spot.
When students are engaged, thinking critically and are excited about it all, you have hit the Sweet Spot.
So what is this Sweet Spot? I believe it is when instruction meets an engaged student(s). It doesn’t take much but (just like golf) when you hit the sweet spot you know it. In golf you know it by the sound it makes or the way the shot looks (and sometimes feels). In education you know it by the feeling you get in your gut as you plan that perfect lesson, ask the perfect question, hear students interact in a particular way that enhances their learning experience or a combination of the all three.
