I know, I know...I've been pretty awful at keeping this blog up to date. I hope you've been following along with my weekly newsletter in the meantime? No? Well, check them out HERE!
2019 has me in a reflective and goal-setting kind of mood, to no one's surprise. Ushering in a new year means new year's resolutions. As teachers, we start a new year twice every year: in January and in August. This means that we have twice as many opportunities to reflect and recommit. My challenge to you for this semester is to think about your EDU diet.
Just like your regular diet, some of us are healthy consumers and some of us take in too much junk. As you begin the new year, think about the following questions:
- Are there practices, ideas, or even people that you need to cut from your EDU diet?
- Are there certain practices that you need to adjust?
- Are there practices or people that you need to add to your daily dosage of EDU?
I have some definite thoughts about each of those and I'm going to use them to try to usher in a new wave of blogging commitment this year. I'll tackle each bullet point in more detail, along with my reasons & rationales for WHY I'm cutting, changing, or adding each piece of my EDU diet. Of course, I'll only be specific with the positives and hope that you can focus in on your own negatives.
Am I alone here? Do I have the only "EDU Diet" that needs trimming? How do you adjust your EDU feed? All tips and suggestions are welcome!
