With the new school year beginning for most I thought I might collect some ideas from you to share with new teachers. With this new month starting, I'd like to start a "What Will You Do?" series that gives you the opportunity to share what you are going to try to do with your students that is something NEW and therefore maybe a little scary for you. For example, are you starting a new behavior plan, a new series, a new way of teaching? I'd love for you to share what you're doing and how it goes. My hopes is that through your reflection new teachers can be helped as well as some of us who are new to our position.
What will I do? This month I am using Interactive Journals with my social studies students, and I'm hoping they use these as their study guides. I'll see how that works when they take their first test.
