    My goal is to stay away from my previous teaching methods which was primarily check homework, I use direct instruction to teach the new concept; we practice; students practice, and then they do their homework. I have been moving away from that–more and more each year–but when things get busy and crazy, I tend to slip back. I need to put it all together–all year–this year.

    Hi Kathy,

    I think we all know the feeling. I find when I’m stressed about something or just feeling like I’m running out of time, I start to see signs of my old self showing up. The most important thing is having an awareness that you’re trying to make changes and that will help you catch yourself. We also don’t want to beat ourselves up over it either; let’s just keep pushing to try and move away from that “I do, we do, you do…” as our primary method of teaching.
