Each week, I publish a post or two containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.

Here are this week’s picks:

A Guide for High School and College Students is by Dan Willingham. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Reading Strategies & Comprehension – Help Me Find More!

I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Resources For Learning How To Best Give Feedback To Students:

Using Inquiry to Create Inspiring Field Trips is from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Organizing & Maximizing Field Trips – Both “Real” & “Virtual”

Though I personally find the examples in the following tweet far too confusing to follow, I’m including it here because it does highlight the idea of what I’m finding more-and-more useful in class: Breaking down tasks to a step-by-step sequence that students can follow.  Though I don’t do it in the visual way suggested in the tweet, more and more I attach a 1,2,3, etc. list of tasks students should do leading to the completion of the project.

I’m adding my commentary, and the tweet, to The Best Resources On Providing Scaffolds To Students.

Teach Writing With The New York Times: Our 2023-24 Curriculum is from The NY Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Writing Instruction.

23 Ways to Build and Sustain Classroom Relationships is from Edutopia.

Powerful, Evidence-Backed Ways to Connect with Students in the First Week of School is from Edutopia.

I’m adding both to The Best Resources For Planning The First Day Of School.
