In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features a powerful visual designed to encourage children to make what I call â€œThe Choice.â€ When kids make â€œThe Choice,â€ they are choosing to dedicate themselves to becoming quality students. The visual shows how making this choice can initiate a virtuous cycle that promises wonderful academic and behavioral results. Give these ideas a try in class with your students or at home with your children. If you would like to receive a jpeg or PDF copy of the visual, simply send me an e-mail requesting one.
A few months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' "
Each of my new â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
