How does Angela Stockman do it? This innovative educator just posted a document that challenges simply “establishing norms.” Called “Let’s Believe in Each Other,” she expounds on how we will support one another.  Use as a model; share in your planning groups. What a wonderful example of rethinking existing practices.

Daniel Rechtschaffen is a therapist, author, and professional developer in the field of mindfulness.  Good time of the year for these practices! He’s posted a booklet for you with mindfulness techniques.

In some areas, testing is already underway.  Often, there’s some down-time in the schedule.  Here’s a little structured fun for students: Todd Stanley‘s puzzle packs – he’s posted 3 of these.

Thanks for supporting best practices in teaching and leading!  As always, thank you for supporting our wonderful educational authors.
