As the year comes quickly to a close there are many obstacles that keep us from accomplishing all of the work that we need to regarding keeping students engaged and keeping ourselves focused on the many tasks at hand.
Does technology offer us any solutions to these problems, do you have any strategies that you implement to close out the year strong and do you ask your students through a survey or other means, how effective this class was for them this past year.
How do we keep our students and ourselves in the game as the year comes to a close, the weather improves and the seniors are no longer in the school. How do we keep them from looking out the window or worse skipping our class or school as a whole.
Finally, what plans do we have for our students and ourselves to so that we can continue our learning throughout the summer and come back ready to move forward next year.
Join us Sunday night at 8 PM on #EdChatRI as we discuss how we all intend to End the Year Strong.
Teaching is all about reflecting on the work we do. All good teachers reflect on each and every lesson they do and see what worked and what might need to be changed. It is hard to believe, but we are almost at the end of the year and now is a great time for us to reflect, to ask questions to ourselves about what worked and what needs to change as we move towards a new year.
Join us tonight at 8:00 PM on #EdChatRI as we Reflect on the Past Year. Together we can learn what we all can do to make ourselves better educators, no matter what role we play.
The decision to teach often comes with a tremendous amount of passion and commitment to improving the lives of others (complete strangers), coupled with low-to-moderate pay and around-the-clock hours. Support to our teachers from families and community members goes a long way throughout the year, in particular during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 5-9.
To kick off this week’s celebrations, #edchatRI will explore the many ways of saying thanks to teachers for their sacrifices and support for our children. We’ll scan our own relationships with teachers, from adolescence to now, and the countless acts of everyday teacher heroism that make us personally grateful. From there we’ll also explore aspirations for the future, as well as meaningful ways to shower teacher appreciations this week and beyond - individually, as a family, and as a school community.
Join us this Sunday, May 4th, at 8pm ET as our guest moderator, Jen Hetzel Silbert (@jhsilbert), founder of #Learning401, guides our exchange of favorite teacher stories, powerful learning moments, family/community supports, aspirations, and the many ways for saying thanks.
