The first days of school are almost here in my neck of the woods (or prairie, if you will), and like many of you, I”m nervous.
Are the kids going to “buy in” to what I'm trying to do in my class?
Will I be able to inspire them to achieve all that they can?
I watched the video below and discovered the answer to my questions: Tell them why.
I am a secondary English Language Arts teacher, a University of Oklahoma student working on my Master's of Education in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum with an concentration in English Education, and a NBPTS candidate. I am constantly seeking ways to amplify my students' voices and choices.
