This time of year, I see so much over teaching. In talking with teachers I hear the concern in their voices and their words let me know it is the looming benchmarks and tests that have them over teaching. No matter what grade you teach, you feel it in the air- the last push until decision time.
This is where the rubber meets the road. Developmentally students need to be ready. Academically students need to be ready. Socially students need to get focused on school… Ready or not…. Here it comes… Can you feel the angst rising?
Not the way of the great fountain teacher.
Let’s stop the frantic feelings and control the urge to push learning onto the students. Deep inside, you know that’s not how it’s done. Watch today’s Zap of Wynn video and put the steps into practice this week.
