I’ve just recently posted a new article on my Edutopia blog, one that challenges teachers to try something new in their classroom for 30 days. As many of my readers know, my students are currently working on their Advocacy/Memoir speeches that mimic those presented at TED. In a recent assignment, I asked my students to analyze a particular speech where the speaker took on the task of trying something new for 30 days. He challenges the audience to see the value in the adoption regardless of whether the new task is made into a habit or not.
In my Edutopia post, I challenge teachers to do the same and even list 5 new habits I’m thinking of adopting as well.
So think about it: what new instructional habit could you try on, if only for 30 days?
