Remix or Reinvent the Wheel??

We are introduced to hundreds of ideas for class lessons every day. Spend 1 minute on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest and you have more great ideas than you can use in the course of a unit. With this in mind, it is NOT necessary to always think about creating something new from scratch. Teachers are all about time management and being efficient. Always starting from scratch will keep you from moving forward at a pace that keeps all students engaged. So let's focus on the Remix of these great ideas we find! Borrow the idea, remix it to fit your students' needs and have engaging lessons that help your students achieve their intended objectives.

If you are interested in collaborating, please reach out to me if you have ideas about how we can work together.
