How much time is left in your school year? Ensure that you are making the most of the learning time with your students with PBL. In my free webinar tomorrow, I'll explain 6 reasons why the end of the school year is the best time to try PBL. Register for The End-of-Year Advantage here: https://www.amybaeder.com/advantage/. It's this Thursday, April 15 at 9pm EST / 8pm CST / 7pm MST / 6pm PST.

Also, I'd love to know--what is the end of the school year like in your classroom or building? Drop your letter in the comments below!

The “End-of-Year” Advantage Webinar Registration - Amy Baeder 04/13/2021

Have you registered for The End-of-Year Advantage webinar? You can do that here: https://www.amybaeder.com/advantage/? It’s this Thursday, April 15 at 9pm EST / 8pm CST / 7pm MST / 6pm PST.

I’ll not only share 6 reasons why the end of the school year can be the best time to try PBL, I’ll also share 3 high-leverage ways you can “tweak” your end-of-year units for maximum interest and engagement.

In this webinar, you'll learn why the end of the school year (and even summer school) are great times to try PBL. You’ll learn how to make the most of the last few weeks of school, especially if your students have instructional time after standardized testing. You will gain high-leverage ideas that will keep your students interested in learning until the school year is over.

We’ll explore:
• 6 reasons why the end of the year can be the best time to try PBL for the first time
• How to "PBL-ify" an existing unit or topic to get started right away
• How to identify a project that matters to students to increase motivation
• Why "raising the stakes" leads to better work from students
• How to build your unit around core skills, concepts, and standards to ensure academic challenge (even at the end of the school year)

I hope you'll join us! https://www.amybaeder.com/advantage/

A Fuller Picture of What a ‘Good’ School Is 02/05/2021

“In a 2020 study, researchers found that schools that improve students' social and emotional development—social skills, a sense of belonging, and a growth mindset, for example—have a much larger impact on long-term outcomes than schools that improve test scores, particularly for disadvantaged students.”

instruction can do a fabulous job of attending to students’ social and emotional development and is built around fostering a growth mindset, so these are exciting findings!

A Fuller Picture of What a ‘Good’ School Is Promoting relationships and a positive mindset toward learning has a bigger impact on students’ long-term success than raising test scores, new research shows.

I went down a “memory lane” rabbit hole & leafed through my Professional Certification binder from 2004-06 that I completed as a new teacher. I was surprised, yet delighted, to find out that my journey began longer ago than I remembered! Also, there’s just nothing like a super-organized binder 🤷🏼‍♀️

Fostering a Strong Community in a Virtual Classroom 05/07/2020

Have you had to pivot your PBL to a virtual space? If so, you may be wondering how to ensure you're hitting the Essential Elements of a High-Performance PBL unit when you're online. How will you ensure that students are ? How will you present to an audience? How will you build in self- and peer feedback? Building a community ensures that there is trust needed for these factors to work well. Check out these resources for creating a strong virtual community. https://www.edutopia.org/article/fostering-strong-community-virtual-classroom

Fostering a Strong Community in a Virtual Classroom The shift to working online requires teachers to think a little differently about how to build the culture they want with their students.

05/06/2020

Thank you, teachers, for pivoting so quickly and for staying committed to your students. We see you and we appreciate you.

05/05/2020

Tell me about your most influential teacher! I don't have just one in mind...in fact, I was fortunate to have many excellent teachers in my life. However, one teacher in particular who significantly impacted my life was my junior English teacher, Mrs. Nichols. She was also my senior AP English teacher and my yearbook sponsor. Her creative approaches to instruction ignited a love of teaching in me! The summer ACT prep program she taught (along with other teachers) helped me score high enough on the ACT to get a full scholarship to a private university! Thank you, Mrs. Nichols!

Now, what's your story?

05/04/2020

What a year to be a teacher! If you're in a role like teachers in our town, you're working double-time trying to stay in touch with students and your colleagues. You might be mourning the loss of time with your students and trying to conduct distance learning while teaching your own children. We appreciate you and all you do every year, but you're on our minds this year. ❤️

What does your "non-office" office look like? I primarily work from home writing curriculum, making videos, providing online trainings, and more (even when there is not a pandemic). However, now that our kiddos are also home, I've abandoned my office and have spent a lot of time working outside, at the kitchen table, and on my couch. In one of these pics, the kiddos are working next to me on their iPads on a math game called Prodigy.

Share your atypical workplace pictures here! (Pets and clutter and kids are fine--no judgment here!)

04/27/2020

By continuing to educate children, teens, and adults, we are planting seeds for our future...even if the future feels a bit uncertain now. Thank you for engaging in this act of optimism. ❤️

How many of you are out of school due to COVID-19?

We are still in session, but everything is getting cancelled in our area. Teachers are preparing AMI packets (Alternative Methods of Instruction) and nearby districts are shutting down.

How are you promoting PBL-like instruction in the midst of this shift?

Isn’t it exciting to turn the page and begin a new day, new month, new year, and new decade all at once?

Fortunately, educators have several built-in opportunities for “fresh starts,” too—the start of a new school year, a new week, a new semester, or a new unit.
