Shawn Thomas invited teacher Lisa Leaheey and me to come on her BAM! Radio show to talk about Three Things We Learned Last Year That Are Working Very Well for Us This School Year.

Though I shared several examples, I forgot to include an important one – going back to paper tasks for my youngest students.

Last year, coming off of a year of distance learning, I pretty much continued to keep everything online.  That process worked find with my IB Theory of Knowledge students, but students in my ELL classes clearly weren’t thrilled about it.

This year, in my ELL classes, I have about twenty-percent of work online and the rest off-line, and it’s working much better.
