This week teachers quotes
Relationships are fundamental to all we seek to do in our classroom – without that,
without being able to trust that we will all show up and give the best of ourselves (well, most of the time) no matter what, the content of what we teach becomes dry, removed, passion-less. Relationships allow us to learn in spite of feeling under the weather, and even (at times) uninspired.
And relationships grant us permission to be kind to each other so that we can all make it through each learning day in the most positive, constructive way.
Having teachers feeling confident about using educational video is a prerequisite to making it an effective part of a district’s curriculum.
If we want to reach our full potential, we need to learn to free our minds.
We spend much of our lives today participating in virtual communities — like our social media networks, online forums, and even the comments sections of websites and blogs.
Students today are already using online tools to facilitate the learning process — like participating in discussions in online forums — so exposing students at an early age to the “rules” of good citizenship is increasingly important.
Students who perceive a teacher as caring have higher attendance and better grades and are more engaged in the classroom and at school.
Reading good essays and literature is not enough on its own to improve student writing. Teachers need to not only model composing but also provide explicit analysis of critical genre features to be subsequently practiced.
