Look Up. Look Out.

I have to admit that I often forget about #edchat on Tuesdays nights, but as I check Twitter I always check in on what people are talking about.

I found this jewel last night from one of my favorite authors, Kylene Beers:

Let’s stop hiding behind “best practice” label. We’re often behind in ed because of a fear of trying “next practices”  #edchat

Instead of asking what’s next like so many of our students do, often as teachers we are asking what’s happened?

We are looking back over our shoulders instead of straight ahead to what’s coming.

Look up.

Look out.
