From the looks of the calendar Spring is approaching after a brutal January and part of February. If you had any snow days, I hope you were able to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee and do some fun reading. Now to face the sprint to the end of the school year with testing, celebrations and outside activities.
My winter reading included James R. Delisle’s book DOING POORLY ON PURPOSE: Strategies to Reverse Underachievement and Respect Student Dignity. I particularly liked his admission that his career changed the day one of his students came in after being sprayed by a skunk! Matt had not been a cooperative student. The incident led to a conversation where Mr. Delisle learned that the student (a fifth grader) had a business of maple sugar farming. He was involved with all the aspects of a business including contracts, selling, and inspections by the state department of agriculture. Why would a student with all that going for him refuse to do his best in school?
Ohio ASCD is committed to the success of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model of healthy, safe, engaged, supported, challenged and sustained environments.
