Are You Slow? I Hope So.

I have long been a proponent of slowing down, even backing up sometimes, to better serve our students and ourselves, in turn. While the new calendar year is not the beginning of a new school year, I do think it is an opportunity to try something new or take a fresh approach in our classrooms. I recently read a blog from my favorites at Edutopia, and while I know it is not possible in full, or maybe even in part right now, I love the mindset behind it. I have linked it here so that you made read it with ease and in hopes of inspiring you to try to slow down just one thing you do with students. Check it out, slowly.
