If I could, I'd lay money on the claim I'm about to make: If you do the one little thing I'm about to suggest, you will have a great school year. Here it is:
At the end of every day, identify three things that went well in your classroom. That's part one -- what went well? When did you see indicators that your students were learning? That they were happy to be in school?
And part two: For each thing that went well, what was your role in it? What action did you take that resulted in the positive outcome? (Elena Aguilar at Edutopia)
