Told to do it

It's a big deal at my school, so I was told to do it. It is labor intensive, and I don't like the idea of publicly penalizing kids. The kids who don't get positive points or do get negative points...

What is amount of time that your contract says you need to give if you resign? I really don't think they would come after you. It's too much work on their part. Also, I worked in a DODDS school in...

Daily 3 or 4

You don't have to implement the Daily 5 all at once. Just give three or four a try if it seems unmanageable. It takes awhile to build up the stamina and independence the students need, but once...

the pendulum swings

Why is it we go from doing what works for our kids (and we are the ones who know them best) to following a canned, scripted program? Hopefully the pendulum will swing back to trusting teachers to do...
