You don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Every time I have a long enough break to reflect on my teaching, I suddenly want to revamp EVERYTHING. I want to try EVERYTHING. First, I go to Pinterest and pin hundreds of ideas. Next, I start at least 10 massive projects to transform my classroom. It’s pathetic! Sometimes I start so many projects at once, when I go back to one, I completely forget my original intentions. Well, not this year. You will be proud of me to know that I am only planning two transformations. Today, I want to share my thoughts on classroom note taking.
