In Praise of Incrementalism - The Unfinished Lesson
We are getting into the 3rd month of a new school year & it's feeling ... well, not so new anymore. Routines are set (or not set depending on your point of view). The weather may be changing, but unfortunately it also tends to lead to dropping many of those awesome routines we have set in place back in September. Then, I listened to a podcast that go me thinking ... how can I help my students (& myself) stay motivated during a time of year that lends itself more to snuggling on the couch with a cup of tea & a good book, rather than sticking with our routines & goals?
