Crowd Sourced Advice for New Teachers

A couple of years ago I surveyed readers to capture their best pieces of advice for new teachers. Back then 131 people replied and I published their advice in the slideshow that you see below. I would like to update the slideshow. If you have advice that you would like to share with new teachers, please complete the form below and I'll publish your advice in a new slideshow next weekend.




On a related note, Tom Barrett's Interesting Ways series includes a crowd-sourced slideshow of advice for getting to know your new class.

Week In Review - Spending Time With Teachers

Good morning from Maine where I'm relaxing for a day after a great week of working with teachers at Ed Tech Teacher workshops in Boston and at a Pearson OLE event in Phoenix. Both events were filled with enthusiastic teachers learning together and sharing ideas with each other. And I learned new things to that have me excited to share with all of you in the near future.
