Back in her classroom, Stephanie Whetstone talks with fifth-graders after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. Peer instruction plays a large part in Whetstone’s classroom, and she insists that students learn how to teach and learn from each other. Her methods work: Under Whetstone’s guidance, students’ scores on Louisiana’s LEAP (Louisiana Educational Assessment Program) tests rose from 75.3 to 94.8 in math and from 77.3 to 87.9 in science.
