Thank you to all who joined us as we think about how teachers can create an “end of the year” with capstone experiences and projects where teachers release responsibility and students learn because of school, not in spite of it.
Building classroom culture is something we tend to think a lot about at the beginning of the year, but it’s just as important to maintain and nurture it throughout the year. For this month’s chat, we want to talk about how you set up your classroom culture, how you maintain the things that are working, and how you change the things that don’t.
This #TchLIVE chat will be on Thursday, March 26th at 4pm PDT.
The subject for February’s #TchLIVE Twitter chat was motivation. We all need it and we all find it in a variety of places. When you’re having a tough class, day, or week, where do you turn for motivation?
Teaching Channel is heading to the annual ASCD conference (March 21-23), dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading. We will be showcasing Teaching Channel Teams, our video-based, professional learning platform that supports continuous professional growth when and where teachers need it most.
