The Classroom Experiment: The start of Year Two

When I was just about to start teaching last summer, I asked a friend and colleague whether they thought I would end up teaching for more than one year. They said, “well, at least one more year. Because at the end of the first year, you’ll have so many ideas of how you’ll want to do it better next time.” Of course, they were right.

So what did I do with my fresh slate?

The general flow of my first unit was:

  1. Setting the tone
  2. Identifying individual strengths
