Time Is on Your Side

Now is the time to think about time: how we spend it and how we maybe wish we were spending it. Looking forward to spending some time with this (Free! Downloadable!) issue of EL magazine.

Check out "Time Well-Managed." Lots of great ideas for re-opening in a virtual teaching environment.

Principals Vs. Email

Very fitting that I came across this EL magazine article about managing the pitfalls of email by Craig Hochbein ["You've Got Email"] as I was taking some time to unclutter my inbox.
Adam Schmucker (@agschmucker)
The principalship should be about rolling up your sleeves, working alongside students and staff, and being present, visible, and honoring connections. Email can be a great tool, but consuming if not managed. Essential conversation for sure! Good article, EL magazine!

Great Timing

What a great article ["No Instructional Minute Wasted"]!! Totally agree with the information written here. Every teacher should understand this and think more about the way they teach! Thank you, Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey.

May We Interrupt Your Learning …

All school PA announcements drive me up a wall during fieldwork. Glad to know I have research to back up what I thought was me just being sensitive. ["The Hidden Cost of Classroom Interruptions" by Matthew Kraft]
Sean Gill (@seanrobertgill)
The National Council on Teacher Quality was determined to do an interruptions study 15 years ago and gave up over methodological challenges. This is a huge, un-talked-about issue … the PA systems that go to every classroom instead of one, etc.

Mmm … Frogs

"If you are forced to eat two frogs, a huge frog and a tiny frog, always eat the big frog first." Great article ["Think Self-Management, Not Time Management" by PJ Caposey]. Thank you, EL magazine!

Help for the Super-Teacher Complex

"In our quest to be heroes, we sometimes forget to save ourselves."- Chase Mielke in his recent EL magazine article "Reining in the Super-Teacher Complex." I hope all teachers [enjoyed] a well-deserved, much-needed summer break!
Dominic Bauer (@dominicbauer12)
Stopped staying overly late after school & stopped bringing work home. Forced myself to prioritize at work instead. Sometimes means I work during lunch, but I'd rather work at work and eat at home. It's amazing what you accomplish when you self-limit the time you work on it.
