  • Use local references, in his case, the military community, to create design challenges.
  • Flex the guardrails of your curriculum to push the boundaries of learning for students.
  • To empower your classroom, you have to allow students the opportunity to relearn curiosity.
  • Take a risk, and fail.  The first thing you will do always sucks, so fix it and try again!
  • Leverage your class engagement to power through the “boring” lessons that are a necessary part of the process.
  • Analyze your state standards and determine if you are teaching too much. There is a good chance you spend more time on skills that are not standards or, focus too much on non-essential standards.
  • Create lessons that students are genuinely curious about, and the best way to determine that is to ask them.
