Two Truths and a Lie

If you’re like me, one of my favorite things about each new school year is meeting my new students and implementing my new lesson ideas.

This week I’ve included a great Buzzfeed list full of seriously creative get to know you ideas from some of our teachers friends (forget “This is what I did this summer…” — I’m talking a crazy twist on the game two truths and a lie).

I’ve also included two really thoughtful pieces that I thought would serve as some great back to school inspiration!

1. The Back to School Buzz
Check out some fun advice and back to school activities from our very own Teacher Champions!

2. Going Green in the Bronx
Bronx teacher Stephen Ritz shares an inspiring story about how he used gardening and sustainable farming methods to challenge his students and see amazing results. He even founded his own non-profit called The Green Bronx Machine.

3. “At School, Everyone’s Job is to Learn”
Stephanie Hirsch, Executive Director of Learning Forward, describes why during this school year, it is more critical than ever to speak up for quality professional learning and provides three simple steps you can take.
