    This blog examines the results of several programs (including "Zero Tolerance") that are thought to be the best practice at the time of implementation but may have spurred more far-reaching negative consequences. It made me think about my classroom policies and what my rules and actions are actually promoting.
  • Krista Greiner says:
    This is a great trove of resources for dealing with gifted students, or even just more advanced students, within your classroom. The link on How to Differentiate Instructions is awesome for showing you different ways to explain things that might engage and pacify high-level learners. It's good for both the eager beavers and the bored students that act out.

    Students have so many conflicting emotions and feelings and hormones. This article talks about practices to have them sort through the mire. This is probably the best article I've read on creative, effective solutions for dealing with the most difficult students.

    This is a link to the course on Compassion Fatigue. The course is really helpful if you can't quite develop a strategy that works on your own, or feel like you really could use a little help. He offers a lot of useful techniques and tips.
