DO THIS, NOT THAT: 7 LITERACY PRACTICES TO DITCH AND HOW TO REPLACE THEM

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?”
