As This Blog Approaches Its Tenth Anniversary, Here’s One Way I’ll Be Celebrating It!

111343005

In about six months, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary!

Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.”

Each week, I’ll be reposting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years. I’ve published over 20,000 of them, so I’ve got a lot to choose from :)

Look for the first “reposts” later this week.

I’m open to commemorating the event in other ways, too, and am open to hearing ideas from readers. Let me know if you have any suggestions…

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:

Last year, one of my New York Times posts for English Language Learners was titled “What Does It Mean To Be A Good Citizen?”

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’d like to highlight a piece I wrote for The Washington Post a few years ago titled How to give classrooms a mission.

From The Archives: “Getting English-Language Learners to Thrive”

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 featuring a piece I wrote for Education Week Teacher several years ago. It’s titled Getting English-Language Learners to Thrive.
