Awesome advice for all educators via Signals vs Noise , especially as a new school year begins!
Then he gave me some advice about teaching that’s stuck with me for more than three decades: “Just pretend you’re teaching you. How would you do that? What would you want to know? What did you dislike when you were taught? What stories would you tell to make it understandable? What would keep you interested and engaged?”
How many times do we end up sitting through lectures, conference breakout sessions, and professional development days where it feels like we’re just getting talked at; where no real teaching, learning, or growth is taking place? (Apologies to all students and teachers I’ve worked with if…okay for when I have done that to you! What can I say, I’m a work in progress!)
Teachers, administrators, and all educators: We want to know, what’s one new strategy you plan to put into practice this school year in order to increase student interest and engagement?
