I read Make It Stick again this summer ... and this time, I'm hoping it sticks! Last summer I read it, was excited about it, but I didn't act on what I had learned.
This summer is different. I read and discussed it. Pulled key ideas out. Created a couple of classroom posters. Beginning to think about how to address homework. Ideas are percolating in the back of the brain.
In preparation I need for students to interact with the content of Make it Stick.
I've seen Julie's lesson plan ... very nice!
I have ideas and materials ... now I just need to put it all into a format that fits our class. I know I want students to interact with some video and text, think their own thoughts, discuss those thoughts with others, and create something. Still refining the purpose/goal.
My to-do list keeps piling up :) I'm beginning to feel the familiar tension between urgency and procrastination.
