Teachers are often lectured, “Get to know your students!” That’s not easy to do. A lot of kids can be pretty closed down and if you try to get to know them before they’re ready…it can be counter productive. This episode offers a different approach to bonding with students. Try reverse engineering these relationships!
Andy Jados is a high school principal who’s not afraid to admit that he struggled with classroom management as a teacher. Listen to his fascinating story about how he turned his class around…and how he now helps struggling teachers transform their classrooms!
Student journaling is in desperate need of a 21st Century public relations face-lift! Listen to this episode to learn how to deeply engage students through blogging. This is blogging at a whole new level, not just…”Tell me your feelings about this topic!”
In this episode, I’ll inspire you to shelve the word “rules” and christen the word “procedure”. I’ll also promote the engagement potential of “Opening Night”…the first day of school. The heart of this episode, however, is the concept of introducing class procedures through student improvs! Give a listen and change the way you look at the first day of school!
This podcast was inspired by my book “Hacking Engagement…”50 Tips and Tools to Engage Teachers and Learners Daily”, which will be available in the late summer of 2016. In this episode, I’ll describe a typical listener who would enjoy and benefit from this program, I’ll provide the episode template, and I’ll introduce myself.
