Well, I am a little at a loss tonight for a blog post, just being honest.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got about a billion and a half questions . . . I’m just a little at a loss for answers. I feel like I am always asking questions, but I’m not always getting answers. Sometimes that is due to lack of language, lack of time, lack of understanding, lack of answers . . . you know. So . . . I’m just going to leave you with the questions tonight. You can come up with the answers!
If it takes 5-6 years of second language instruction for a child to be academically proficient in the language, what should my main goal in the classroom be this year?
Okay, so I did get a good answer before I even asked this question from my husband. If I can instill a love of learning and English in my students this year, then this year will have been profitable for them regardless of the amount of English they walk away with.
How do we fix the problems created by teachers’ unions in the States? How do we find a way to give incentives and practice quality control among teachers?
Is test-taking actually an important life skill, like I am still compelled to claim?
At what age do kids usually start learning to write their numbers?
Why is it so easy to get so distracted and sucked in by technology?
I’ve got to go now! I’ve been promising myself every morning that I would go to bed earlier than the night before. I’m not very good at keeping that promise! Goodnight!
