The only thing that I am an expert on is what works in my own classroom. That's it. I've spent years figuring this out. No one knows this better than I do. So...
I have made it my goal to try to teach the way kids learn.
This means taking the time to figure our how their brains work! So here is my list of 11 Rules for Engaging Students' Brains. I'm printing it out and keeping it close while I teach, because I need constant reminding! (That's the way MY brain works).
I hope it can help you, as well,
