Last summer I wrote a post after a tweet from @burgess_shelley (she’s married to that Pirate guy)…but I enjoy reading her journey and experiences as an educational learner and leader!
Time to read the blogosphere is sometimes put on the back burner during the school year. I hate this because interacting with #MTBoS challenges me to be a better teacher. But it happens.
So today, I offer this challenge (again) to myself, but feel free to join in. Read posts from 3 people you follow on twitter. If you cannot do it daily, set a goal for yourself. I am challenging myself to 4 days a week and one day to reflect and share my take-a-ways by compiling my to-do list for next year.
My intentions for next year are to incorporate more hands-on labs/data collection, focus on vocabulary and literacy strategies to empower student reasoning (writing and summarizing, @druinok!), providing more purposeful interactions/discussions (Strength in Numbers, @tchmathculture!) and planning more engaging tasks/activities. Hopefully these goals will guide my focus in this challenge.
I am looking forward to reading from some new bloggers as well as catching up with those tried & true!
