Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

12 Days Of Ideas #4: The Day Before Christmas Break

Today was the last day before our Christmas break and we just relaxed.

I don't know how many teachers in our building taught and how many showed holiday movies.

I didn't want to do either, so we did this...

Enjoy. Rest. Reflect. And... RELAX. And if you assigned homework for winter break call all your students' parents, apologize, and cancel it. NOW.

Happy Holidays!
