Ninth Anniversary Of This Blog — What Have Been My Most Popular Posts?

3906492663

I began this blog nine years ago this month

Writing it has made me a better teacher for my students, and I hope it’s been helpful to others. It’s been an incredible gift to be able to connect with so many talented educators around the world.

I began writing it as a place for me to keep resources that I would use in the classroom in one place. Little did I know it would result in 17,500 posts (including 1,531 “Best” lists), over eight million visitors, and thousands of subscribers, and lead to eight books.

I have also begun writing other blogs — my teacher advice column at Education Week Teacher, Engaging Parents In School blog, and others.

I appreciate the people I have met — online or in person — through this blog, and everything I have learned from you.

Thanks, and forward to another year!

In addition to the above few words, I thought people might find it interesting to see what have been the most popular posts since this blog began (you can also see a list of my personal favorite ones here).

Here they are:

1. The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom
