5 Teaching Practices I Would Never Do Again

5 Teaching Practices I Would Never Do Again | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

As an educator for almost fifteen years, I think about what I used to do and shake my head at some of my thinking. Many of the practices that I had adopted were things that I had learned as a teacher and few had challenged at the time, or at least I did not have access to a different kind of thinking.  When we ask others to try and move forward in their practice, it is important to not only share our stories of success, but also our stories of growth. Vulnerability is crucial to leadership and building trust.

Another great way to learn during summer:  get a few teachers together and chose a book to read.  Create a blog to share insights.  This could help reinforce technology skills and allow more to participate as they sit at the pool or take care of children.  This might be something that could continue into the school year.
