I want to create a series of posts on my blog called Teacher Tip Tuesdays (twitter hashtag #teachertiptuesdays).
The vision is for teachers to be able to search #teachertiptuesdays and a keyword of their choice like (organize papers) and then have a plethora of how to posts to choose from.
Any teacher can also join in on the fun to post their own Teacher Tip Tuesdays.
Guidelines for good posts include:
- Answers a very specific question (Not, “How do I get my students to behave?” but rather, “How do I make sure my students don’t begin moving until AFTER I’ve finished giving directions?”
- Immediately actionable (For example, if my advice is to buy a certain book and read it, I’ll include the Amazon.com link.)
- Invites feedback and conversation
The reason I think this would be valuable would be because it helps educators to self-reflect on what they’ve learned through their teaching and because I have yet to find a single go-to place for all my teaching questions. Instead, the resources are rather scattered.
What do you think about this idea?
