Compared to when I started teaching in 2006, I see more students reading short and dense excerpts and texts to contextualize those excerpts. While I lament the decreased use of fiction in high school classrooms, I do applaud reading shorter pieces deeply rather than longer pieces shallowly. Depth over breadth is indeed a best practice.
Set classroom resolutions you can follow through with. Reflect on teaching victories and set goals to replicate them. #WATeachLead

When I was in college, I met a resilient man. He was tiny, bone thin and determined to learn English. He had survived the killing fields of Cambodia and been one of the few allowed to emigrate to the United States. He was alone.
It’s been a while since I’ve had the privilege of posting about STEM and standards-based education. Thank you, CORElaborate, as always, for the opportunity! The last year has contained many journeys for me and my family.
Peer relationships are one of the most important things to a child in school. Humans are social creatures and we crave positive interactions with others.
My Bridge to College course began with the “Juvenile Justice” module as discussed in my September blog. Over the last two months we also completed the module “Bullying” and are in the middle of the “Racial Profiling” module.
