Eight Things Skilled Teachers Think, Say, and Do
by Larry Ferlazzo
This is a great article to read before school starts. You can find it at ASCD/ Educational Leadership!
Another great ASCD article, Guiding the Budding Writer, by Peter Johnston. He is the author of Opening Minds, one of my favorite reads!
I think both of the articles are insightful! They encouraged me to think about teacher and student talk in the classroom. Students need our feedback to strengthen skills and to see themselves as accomplished learners. Our words are powerful!
