From The Archives: “Five key strategies to get/keep kids engaged at school”

I’ve recently re-started an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

Today, I’m highlighting an excerpt from one of my books that The Washington Post published last year. It’s called Five key strategies to get/keep kids engaged at school.

Here’s a portion of it:

From The Archives: “Getting students to engage — not just comply”

I’ve recently re-started an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

Getting students to engage — not just comply is a piece I wrote for The Washington Post last year.

It describes how I hold students accountable for reading at home.

From The Archives: “Dancing Guy: Why teachers should ignore his advice”

I’m re-starting an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

One piece I wrote that received a fair mount of negative (as well as positive) feedback was Dancing Guy: Why teachers should ignore his advice, which appeared in The Washington post.

Here’s an excerpt. Let me know what you think:

I’ve recently re-started an effort I’ve tried to do previously by regularly highlighting previous posts and articles I’ve shared in previous years that I think might be worth a second look.

Today, I’m highlighting a piece I co-authored with Carrie Rose, Director of the Parent-Teacher Home Visit Project. It appeared in ASCD Express a few years ago, and was titled Home Visits and Hope for the Future.
