HELPING NEW TEACHERS DO MORE THAN SURVIVE

Schools have often been accused of eating their young. Assigning novice teachers the toughest classes and most remote classrooms, we seem to expect them to sink or swim. How can we do better? What systems are in place at your school to help young teachers thrive? What advice do you have for someone entering the profession? What do you wish you knew when you began teaching?

REBUILDING READING AND WRITING MUSCLES

Over the course of the pandemic, many students’ reading and writing muscles atrophied. Teachers worry that the supports they provided — and which were sorely needed — for distance learning have become crutches, inhibiting student autonomy and holding back student achievement. How can we re-engage students in their own learning and help them choose to tackle complex academic tasks? How have you approached the challenge of reestablishing the rigor required for reading long books and writing extended essays? What changes have you made to curriculum and instruction to help students become stronger, more self-directed learners?
