TEACHING RESOLUTIONS

The waning days of 2006 and a vacation from school (actual time for introspection!) inspired some education bloggers to consider their teaching-related resolutions for 2007. These ranged from the specific (Epiphany in Baltimore resolved to grade papers more quickly) to the general (Lady Strathconn resolved simply to try harder at everything) to the sarcastic (TeacherTalk’s Erica Jacobs resolved to “be a beacon of light in fulfilling all administrative tasks such as creating innovative, common lesson plans that will not only be fun and engaging to students but will guarantee a 10% increase in their standardized test scores.”) Jacobs also argued that, for educators, the New Year should rightly come in September, when school starts. Then there was Weblogg-ed, who blogs about using the Web in the classroom. He resolved to narrow his blog-reading on the topic from 125 (!) to 40, and to focus his blog on what other practitioners are doing—as opposed to himself. What about you? Did you make any teaching- or classroom-related New Year’s resolutions?
