Subject: Geometry

I teach a geometry class with strong students and want to redesign the course to allow students to generate their own questions. I want to set up the course so I provide an environment that introduces a topic but gives students the opportunity to take over and ask and answer their own questions. Sometimes I think I get in the way of my students. I think if I structured the course differently, they would far surpass my expectations and learn not only the "basics" but also topics I didn't think they could understand. I know this is possible and would like to have a correspondence/conversation with other like-minded teachers. I have access to computers although I want students to have a choice of working with and/or without computers. Sometimes I think of throwing away the textbooks and writing my own materials but experience tells me I need the structure of a text to use as a spring board...and I don't have time to devote to writing each lesson myself. Thanks for the opportunity to ask for help.
