Writers love alliteration, don’t they? I know that I do. That’s why I can’t think of a better reason than to start this new weekly series.
I’ve actually been thinking about this for some time now. I know that my readership doesn’t consist merely of teachers so I don’t want to alienate anyone. I don’t want to turn this blog into a teaching blog. Quite frankly, even I would find that boring. Yet, when I write about teaching, people seem to respond to it. I have some search engine hits from some of my teaching related topics as well.
I have a lot of teaching knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. I have tips, tricks, and procedures that I use in the classroom quite successfully. It might be great to get some of these things down on paper, as it were. As I have stated before, a thought unrecorded is often a thought lost. I shouldn’t keep all of this stuff in my head. If I do that, I might forget some of the things that have worked well.
So this series is as much for me as it is for my fellow teachers. I am a pretty organized guy. Perhaps some of these tips will be useful in the business world as well. I doubt that they will all be limited to the classroom.
I hope that you will read this ongoing series and comment on it as well. I think that teachers should help teachers. It’s a tough job with so many facets to it. It can be easier with a bit of sharing.
