This year has had a great start in my classes. I have been happy about how they have started and my students seem to be “buying” into my class. The feedback regarding the name tents activity has been incredibly positive and I hope to do this activity maybe once a month with my students. I also did some work with my students on productive struggle which gave me some great insight into some of my students’ work ethic. I have fallen behind in my #blaugust posts but hope that I can catch up in the next couple of days. Here are some blog ideas that I need to flesh out:
1.) What I do/leave for substitute/guest teachers teachers
2.) The Solar Eclipse Hype
3.) My experience using an online lesson plan book and whether I think it is sustainable and useful
Moving forward from surviving the first week of classes, I am considering implementing homework that is reflection as opposed to practice or problem solving. I need to resolve what to do about 1.) students who do not do the reflection and 2.) students who are absent.
