Enjoy the video. Watch the one on the right...didn't see the solo coming!


One of the recent conferences that some staff attended was about self-regulation. This will be part of our February 29th P.A. Day, and if you are interested you can take a peek at some of the highlights Stuart Shanker is interested in teachers and support staff learning, in order to help students self-regulate.

Critical Thinking as Learners

Are you wondering about your next steps for homework, Genius Hour or MakerSpace? This teacher has some great ideas about thinking critically about what we've always done (as in not just doing something because we've "always done it this way"). In repurposing or thinking about our practices, we can continue to motivate students as learners (and we can also learn in the process!)
