Tweens & Teens Part 2

Last month we focused on the attention span of your average middle schooler. I shared with you the 30/90/10 rule and offered a couple of strategies that you could use in your classroom. See this newsletter for those strategies. This month I'd like to accent how social interaction can result in improved learning. We all know how social some tween and teens can be, so how can we channel that skill into productive, engaging collaboration in the classroom?
As testing fast approaches, take a moment to reflect on all the progress your students have made this year and celebrate them!
