#TchLIVE: The Art of Teaching

So much about teaching comes in waves, and the end-of-the-year wave is often marked by an immersion in the science of teaching: assessments, grades, proving what was accomplished. But as we ride out one wave and onto summer’s, I think we should welcome back into our lives the notion of the art of teaching.

Although the art of teaching may seem more elusive, it’s no less crucial to the pulse of learning. It’s the part of the craft that’s about our creative impulse, our read of a child’s emotional state, our instinct to make this decision or that in the midst of the thousands of decisions we make each day.

If you’re ready to kick off your summer thinking by sharing what you’ve learned about the art of teaching, about the importance of creativity in your professional life, then join us for June’s #TchLive chat this week! Share what has supported you to become better in this area of your practice, whether it’s a mentor, a colleague, professional books, or just plain old lived experience. If you’ve just completed your first year or your 20th, you’ve got knowledge and wisdom to share on this subject. And, if you’re looking for a few resources to get you thinking before we chat, you may want to check out these:

The #TchLIVE chat will be on June 18th, at 4pm PDT.
