Happy New Year, colleagues! I’m looking forward to another year of sharing ideas with you that improve student learning. But first I’d like you to revisit (and tweet if you’re inspired) the three most popular posts on this blog in 2012 as you make New Year’s resolutions for 2013. Here are the three posts, along with a quote from each:
- Don’t Prevent Students’ Mistakes, Prepare for Them. “Traditional teaching methods deny students the chance to learn from their mistakes by preventing them from making mistakes.”
- Don’t Evaluate Teachers, Coach Them. “Accountability without support is a formula for frustration and failure--for school leaders and teachers alike.”
- The Effect of Affect. “How students feel in your classroom influences how they perform in your classroom.”
Let’s work together to make 2013 a peaceful and productive year for all children!
