The Best 6 of 2016
The end of 2016 is upon us, and I am taking some time to reflect back on all my little blog has accomplished this year. I bought my domain, gave my template a big make-over, and have grown as a writer. In honor of that, I wanted to share with you Kovescence of the Mind's top 6 posts of 2016 in hopes that you will find some useful teaching tips to take you into 2017.
Since teachers spend such a large part of their day on their feet, we need to take care of them. Don't undervalue the importance of great socks and shoes in 2017.
Everyone loves to give education advice, and being able to weed out what is useful and what is not useful is an important skill. Here I share the MOST useful advice I have ever received on teaching.
All teachers need quick tips to improve their classroom and instruction. This book study reviews a book full of those kinds of tips and tricks.
Our school counselor wrote this guest post for us after he returned from a week-long professional development experience with the Marine Corps. This is a program they run every year.
Now that I am teaching English 9, I will get to do Shakespeare twice this year. See how I channel my inner pirate and Dave Burgess (who shared and commented on this post) to teach A Midsummer Night's Dream.
While this isn't August/September back-to-school time, we are headed back for a new semester. Each of my five tips is perfect for January Back-to-School season.
What was the best part of 2016 for you?
