A great article written by Kasey Kiehl:
“We’ve all done it, reflected back on something we used to do while teaching that we would never do again. When I look back at some of the teaching practices I’ve used, it literally makes me cringe. Does it mean we were bad teachers? No. I’m a believer that teachers always do the best they can do for their students with the resources and knowledge they have at the time. Isn’t it a beautiful thing that we live in a world where we can continuously learn, gain new knowledge, and make changes to improve ourselves? That’s what this blog post it all about. How can you ditch some commonly-used literacy practices that can be replaced with practices that will serve you and your students better?”
