Teachers are teaching us to think critically and critically to improve our learning outcomes.
But how to make sure you’re doing it right and not harming the educational enterprise?
I know it sounds counterintuitive.
But it’s true.
When you write a book or write an article, the world is a lot more likely to read and listen to it.
So what does that say about the value of educating yourself?
In a time when we’re struggling to find new ways to communicate and engage students, I’ve decided to spend my time thinking about how to improve the quality of our education.
I’m not alone.
In this time of intense media attention, many are asking themselves the same questions.
How do we make the best educated choices?
What is our best way to teach the students that are already in our classrooms?
How do I ensure that my students have access to the knowledge they need?
To answer those questions, I’m asking you to take a moment and listen.
To take a step back and ask yourself if you really care what other people think about your work or what you write about.
I know that a lot of people have already been in my position.
They’ve read my work and taken the time to respond.
It may be because they have been a reader or have read my books and comments.
It might be because the work resonates with them and resonates well with the way they feel.
But there’s something deeper at play here.
For the majority of people, writing about their education is not a conscious decision.
It’s simply a matter of convenience.
And that convenience may be just as important as the content itself.
The first step to making that choice is knowing what your audience wants.
I have spent the past few years helping students, parents, and educators craft the content they need to reach their students.
I’ve created content that engages their curiosity, informs their learning and allows them to have fun.
I want to be a voice that students hear, and I know they’re going to like it.
I can’t promise the quality I’m creating will necessarily be of the highest quality.
But I do know that it’s the best I can hope for.
And it’s something I hope you’ll share with your students and your teachers.
I also want to share that the content you publish and share with the world matters.
When students get access to what I’ve written, it’s important that we have the right kind of content.
And the right content is what students and parents want to hear.
For those of you who have chosen to work with me, I can tell you that this work is something I have a great deal of respect for.
We’re fortunate to be able to be entrusted with a lot in our lives, and a great many things have changed in the past decade.
For example, there’s no question that having a career as a journalist has changed our lives.
Now that I’m writing and speaking about education, I know I’m taking my job seriously.
And I want my readers and teachers to feel that.
In the past, many people have said they were scared of writing a book.
But in my experience, this fear has been misplaced.
They didn’t fear publishing a book, but they didn’t have the time, the budget, or the tools to produce one.
Now, I am a big believer in building a community.
That community is what I’m working toward.
I hope that you’ll join me.
In addition to my writing, I also work with many educators, parents and educators who are creating their own content to inspire their students to take action.
These educators have a wide range of skills, but their goal is the same: To inspire their children to learn.
What I want them to see is that you can build a classroom that is inclusive, equitable, supportive and collaborative.
And this is the key to building a positive and productive learning environment.
What is the best way for educators to build the kind of community that they need in order to get their students ready for the 21st century?
In my book, My Education Navy, I share a number of principles that I believe educators can use to ensure they can be successful.
I share three ideas that I hope educators can apply to their classroom and to their careers.
First, students need to be taught by people who share their values and beliefs.
When educators share their views and ideas, they’re creating a community of learning, and that’s a community that can grow and thrive.
Secondly, they need a sense of purpose in their classroom.
This is a powerful way to cultivate empathy, and to build a relationship with your fellow educators.
And third, they should be able take pride in their work and know that their teaching has been a success.
When teachers and students are able to learn and grow, they’ll be able more easily be confident and self-motivated to succeed in their teaching career.
So how do you best prepare your students to learn? The
