In this episode:

After listening to this episode you will leave equipped to choose resources that help you teach your students. 

I talk about:

      1.What your most undervalued resource is….hint it’s not your pal google.

  1. Why you need to know your standards before you try to look for your next resource. 
  2. How to go about deciding when to look for a resource and decide if it’s going to work for you and your students. 


 – Your most undervalued resource is you and your knowledge of your state standards and your students.  

-You are the chief learner in your classroom and you have to model being a learner for your students. 

-Kids know when you don’t know what in the world you’re talking about, so please practice the strategy you’re going to teach them ahead of time.
