Cheryl Suliteanu asks: How do we educate families about the ways in which they can support their children, without insulting their trust in us to do what's best, and while not placing blame?

(This is the last post in a two-part series on this topic. You can see Part One here.) Attilio Galimberti asked: What are best practices to make a flipped classroom model work? Part One in this series included guest responses from enthusiastic proponents of the flipped classroom like Peter Pappas and Andrew Miller, while Josh Stumpenhorst shared reservations similar to mine in his response. Today's post includes positive responses from educators Jonathan Bergmann and Troy Cockrum, along with comments from readers. In addition, it should include the first weekly ten minute BAM!

(This is the first post in a two-part series on this topic) Attilio Galimberti asked: What are best practices to make a flipped classroom model work? I have to say that I have absolutely no experience with a flipped classroom (the term commonly used to describe the practice of having students view instructional videos as homework and therefore creating more time in class for personalized instruction), so I called on several educators who did to respond to Attilio's question. But, not having experience doesn't preclude me from having an opinion :) or from creating a balanced list of resources at The ...

(This is the final post in a three-part series on this topic. You can see Part One here and Part Two here) Shawn Blankenship asked: What are strategies to close the gap between new ideas and implementation? The question may need to be adjusted a little, but many educators are reading, sharing, learning, and growing together. However, what are ways in which we can put these new ideas into action in a timely manner? I'm sure self-initiation, problem-solving, risk-taking and the freedom to fail and learn from such failure will be a part of the conversation. As a principal, I ...

(This is the last post in a two-part series on the challenges facing male teachers. You can see Part One here.) This week's "question-of-the-week" was: What are the unique challenges facing male teachers? Do they have it easier, harder, or the same as women educators?
