I’ve written several posts sharing pieces by Marvin Marshall, who has written some great stuff about positive classroom management strategies. I’d encourage readers to subscribe to his blog.

Today he shared two simple reflective questions he’d suggest that teachers ask themselves to evaluate their work:

If I were a student, would I want me as a teacher?

If yes, list the reasons.

If no, list the reasons.

Short, sweet, and effective…assuming that the teacher has at least a limited sense of self-awareness.  One would hope that most teachers would pass that threshold…
