What Are the Best Ways to Start a New School Year?
I'm not yet done with posting summer thematic collections of past posts or new interviews with authors.
However, I know that many teachers are starting their new school year soon (I don't go back until the beginning of September).
So, I'm interjecting this new "question-of-the-week":
What are the best ways to start a new school year?
Please share your thoughts in the comments or, if you prefer, feel free to email them to me.
I'm re-visiting this question, and previous responses can be found at Best Ways To Begin & End The School Year.
It's one of those issues where you can never get enough good advice!
I'll return to posting thematic collections and author interviews after I post responses to this question, and will officially begin year six of this column in early September with tons of new questions and answers!
You can also send questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.When you send one 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.
Another option is contacting 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.
