"There’s a certain class of mistakes that all educators can eliminate with conscious effort, and in this post we outline 11 of them. They range from habits of practice to habits of thought, but all of them have one important thing in common: they make your job harder."

For many of us this school year has come to an end or will shortly. Perhaps it is time to reflect on our year and consider habits that might need to be changed. This post looks at 11 habits. A few are listed below.

* Not learning from colleagues. This seems simple, but given how busy our day is it is tough to find time to observe another teacher, or have someone tape you and ask others to provide you with feedback.

* Assuming a lesson taught is a lesson learned. Have you asked yourself how many times you have repeated a portion of a lesson? With the range of students in our classrooms the need to rephrase, review, reteach key points may be more necessary than we think.
* Failing to establish relevance. At times this may seem difficult to do, but for our students to learn we need to make our topic relevant to them. When you are successful with this share your ideas with others!

Edutopia has been offering some great series of articles on a variety of topics. I find the idea of social-emotional learning to be one of their most interesting.Empathy is one of the 21st century skills that is best taught and modeled in our real world.
