My project this summer is to help improve my schools advisory program. I am research resources to use with our middle school students. If you happen to have any great resources you use to help build relationships with your students I would love to hear from you. Currently, many of our teachers use Wonderopolis to help engage students in questioning and CNN Student News to keep students up to date on current events. Otherwise each grade has worked on developing lessons to teach learning skills and help students grow socially, emotionally, and physically. I hope to create a website that will give our staff adequate resources allow for choices to fit our students needs. If you can help out please fill in the form below.
While many teachers are enjoying the first weeks of summer break and the relaxation that comes after a successful school year, many school teachers and leaders are actively learning. AMLE holds an Institute for Middle Level Leadership twice during the summer. The institute helps leaders reflect on their practices and collaborate with others leaders. Many of the activities revolve around “unpacking” This We Believe: Keys to Educating Young Adolescents, the AMLE landmark position paper. I have been following the event on twitter. Have been observing great ideas emerge from the conference. I hope some day to be able to attend. Below is the link to an archive of tweets.
