I thought that new – and veteran – readers might find it interesting if I began sharing my best posts from the first half of this year. You can see the entire collection of best posts from the past thirteen years here.


I’ve previously shared that we’re doing a series of ELL professional development sessions involving every teacher at our school (see Could This Be A Good Template For Just About Any Professional Development Session? ; Video Of Our ELL Student Panel & Downloadable Hand-Out They Used For Preparation and Here’s What Our Teachers Have Learned About Teaching English Language Learners ).

As I previously described , we end each session with teachers saying what they want to stop doing, what they want to continue doing, and what is something new they want to try.

I shared in that previous post what participants in one of the sessions listed, and I thought readers might find it interesting to see what teachers in the session we did yesterday shared.  You can see a screenshot of part of their list at the top of this post, and you can download the entire list here. Thanks to Melanie Bean for transcribing the list!

There’s a fair amount of overlap with the previous list I shared, but I think it’s interesting to compare them.

I’m adding this post to:
