The Most Popular Classroom Q&A Posts This School Year

By Larry Ferlazzo — June 16, 2019 1 min read

Most of us teachers have either finished the school year or are just about to do so.

I thought it would be a good time to review and share the most popular posts from the past 10 months.

The first 10 posts are the most popular ones that have also been posted during this past school year.

The second list is the most popular ones—period. In other words, they have received the most “hits” but may have originally appeared prior to the fall of 2018.

You can see the links after this excerpt from one of them:
