How to Handle Students Who Give You Attitude– If you want some great classroom management tips, Michael Linsin’s site is fantastic. He has a weekly post that helps new (and seasoned teachers) with some ideas. This week, Linsin suggests that when students sigh or roll their eyes, it is not always personal.

More Innovation= Less Classroom Management Issues– I have been seeing this when I have a project that is interesting to the kids. “Strangely”, if kids are engaged, they are less likely to act out. Not always, but mostly less likely.

Teachers Who Have Stopped Assigning Homework– Alfie Kohn…Teachers share their HW stories (or lack of)

The Power of Praise– Spencer Kagan offers some brain-based reasons praise is good, what it looks like and what it doesn’t look like.

Happy Wednesday folks.

Did I mention I will be going to CUE 2017 tomorrow? 🙂
