Q & A Collections: Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year

Welcome_back_to_school.png

I'll begin posting new questions and answers in late August, and during the summer will be sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past two years. You can see those collections from the first year here.

Today's theme is on "beginnings and endings." It's particularly appropriate for this time in August as many teachers are preparing to start a new school year.

Previous themes have been:

Student Motivation

Implementing The Common Core

Teaching Reading & Writing

Teaching Math and Science

Brain-Based Learning

Instructional Strategies

Education Policy Issues


I'll be spending the summer organizing questions and answers for the next school year, and there is always room for more!

You can send questions to me at lferlazzo@epe.org.When you send it in, let me know if I can use your real name if it's selected or if you'd prefer remaining anonymous and have a pseudonym in mind.

You can also contact me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo.

Anyone whose question is selected for this weekly column can choose one free book from a variety of education publishers.
