To get beyond box checking, engage with your students from a place of curiosity. Ask yourself what you want to accomplish in the first days and weeks of school.
This activity helps students to become aware of their zones of proximal development, those spaces that push them to stretch beyond what they already know and can do toward what might be possible.
How can we teach students how to thrive within the context of their current, and future, skill sets, the things they can’t do yet, but might be able to do in time?
Plan for fun, interactive, effective professional development this year!
Passion for teaching and learning is a core component of Inspired Teaching.
When you feel confident about who you are, you’re in a position to create a safe space for students and the other special people in your life.
