Haley Gayoski. Due Date: 10-21-18. This is a great way for teachers tom check up on their students throughout the day. By incorporating this in the classroom, it allows for the teacher to take initiative and talk through the students trouble(s). It will also make students feel included and special in the classroom by receiving attention/help from the teacher.
The Literary Maven: Project Based Learning, Genius Hour, & 20% Time: How to Individualize Student Learning
How do you individualize instruction in your classroom and allow students to pursue their interests? Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the types of individualized learning they use in their classroom: project based learning, Genius Hour, and 20% time, and how they got started and introduced it to students. Teachers also shared past PBL units, final products, successes and obstacles. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

It's going to be tough for any parent to justify social talking when they see that their son has filled out 10 Yellow Slips with "I was talking to (student's name) instead of working on my assignment." That's a pretty powerful message."
