Keep Your Eyes on the Prize: Teaching Well

To teach well, you have to keep your eyes on the prize.

First, identify the prize. At the end of the year, what will you have achieved if you taught well--that's the prize.

Then identify the obstacles that will make attaining the prize difficult. Keep distance and find as many ways as possible to remove or sidestep the obstacles. Yet, think a bit about those obstacles--do they hold truths that will help you to teach better? If so, embed into the teaching/learning path.

Chart your path.

Stop, reflect, and revise along the way.

Find allies for your journey.

Happy travels!
