Rap Radio Shines Worldwide

Great hip-hop radio happens every week in places such as Hamilton, Guelph, and Toronto. The shows span from London, Ontario all the way to London, England, and even dip down to Winterpark, Florida. Click through and find out how you can listen to them no matter where you are.

Let’s Influence and Empower Our Students

I finally got around to reading a book by education expert Barbara Coloroso. I like her ideas and uses some of them in my teaching practice. Click through to read what I took away from her work.

How We Can Edit Our Lives

This was another interesting read. Here is a quote from Donald Miller’s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life.

“We live in a world where bad stories are told, stories that teach us life doesn’t matter and that humanity has no great purpose. It’s a calling, then, to speak a better story.”

I know that I am determined to live a better story in 2016.

How about you?

Teach Like a Pirate – The 2nd Day of School

I love the ideas that Dave Burgess presents in his book, Teach Like a Pirate. His ideas are far from the traditional, and that is why they work, why they connect with students, and why he is such a successful teacher. I highly recommend trying his techniques in your classroom.
