Sarah's Notes
Like many of you, I’ve been working hard to plan and design real learning experiences for my students — authentic moments where they can unabashedly enjoy learning. To make this happen, I’ll need to get to know my students and discover who they are and how they learn. I’ve shared some thoughts on how I’ll do this in my video blog and I’d love to hear how you're planning to get to know your students in those first few days. Be sure to share your ideas in the comments section.

P.S. And here’s another resource that might help: 14 Ways to Cultivate Classroom Chemistry.
