This post is week 8 of 8 in the 8 Weeks of Summer Blog Challenge for educators
How do I commit on reflecting? That's a tough one.
I have had this blog for a lotto years and it has had its ups and downs.
In the beginning I just kept, lets say a diary with activities with my students, posted students' projects, book-, seminar- and convention-reviews, which I continue to do, but I have realised that blog challenges keep my motivation and make me think of new things to try out with my students.
The first challenge I took part in was Shelly Terrell's 30 goals and through this experience I met so many people and I have learned so many things that helped me be a better teacher and a better person.
After that I have found a lot of people wanting to share their thoughts and ask and answer questions, for example:
- How I started teaching
- Sandwich reflection (share two positive experiences and a bad one)
- Random facts about you and your teaching habbits
- Advice to your younger self
and so much more.
This year I intend to write one post a week, sharing activities, experiences and of course I am open to any blog challenges and questions. (depending on my free time that is)
Comments and discussion are a great motivation. So, people who read this, don't hesitate to express yourself - it will be a great help!
It has been a pleasure to participate in this wonderful blog challenge!!
