How do teachers build community in a new classroom? How do people get better at learning names? PLUS: Ideas for helping the growing number of lonely boys.
I love Mr. Tom Rad and his work! We did the “one word” exercise he mentions in that post in my classroom last year and the results were so thought-provoking, not to mention gorgeous. Wishing all educators a connected start to the year and you a meaningful sabbatical. (I’m also in the same boat and it definitely took me a while to find a new groove with writing again.)
