Yesterday our back-to-school started off great with 3 hours spent learning from & listening to Harry Wong, his wife Rosemary and featured speaker Chelonnda Seroyer...
If you have never have the pleasure of seeing Harry in person, you are missing a great experience! His book, The First Days of School, was life-changing for me, even though I had been teaching for several years before reading it.
He has followed that up with his newest book (which the publisher offered to us at a great price)...
I'm also thankful for the online resources they directed us to at www.teachers.net. On this website, anyone can access more than "12 years of columns featuring teachers and administrators who have implemented" both of these books.
On the home page, click on 'magazines' in upper right corner
Then 'current issue' in the drop down menu. On the next page look for 'back issues' in lower right corner of top masthead
Here are a few articles spotlighted during the 3 hour presentation:
I can't wait to explore the whole site - I hope you find something here that you can use for a successful year! Enjoy...
