Focus 2 Achieve

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.

Physics Final Haiku

Physics Final haiku


It's been a while since I posted a poem or rap or anything artistic, so without further ado I give you 3 haiku (perfect 5-7-5 structure) submitted by a English-major-turned-Physics-teacher-perhaps-wannabe-Administrator tattoo-clad purveyor of awesomeness Lee Wignall!


He leans in and shakes

his head and then the table

as he erases.


I don't remember...

Hooke's Law. What was that again?

She pictures pirates.


If you squint real hard

Sometimes the answer is clear.

Just wear your glasses.


Thanks for reading/looking and I hope you enjoyed these haikus. Please share it with other educators and perhaps it will bring a smile to their faces. Please SIGN UP for my NEWSLETTER if you would like to receive more such pieces in the near future and other articles on brain-based learning and connecting with students as that is what I specialize in.

And Remember: You have the power to change the world. Use it often.
