|Finish The Year Stong!|

Kelly J. Young delivers a "finish the year strong" speech in his trainings that would warrant passing the offering tray in the Baptist church I grew up in. LOL. Hopefully, many have both heard and remember it because we are at the time of year when our instructional time with this year's students is running out. With that in mind, what can we (and they) do to make sure we optimize the time we have left?
Larry Ferlazzo, a teacher in Sacramento, California and the creator of an award winning website for educators, posed two questions to his students a few weeks ago and posted the responses publicly. The questions are:
What are three things you can do to help you finish the school year strong academically?
What is one thing you can do to help your classmates finish the year strong academically?
This is a great idea for so many reasons ... try it! Also, answer the first question yourself and post your answers too.
We'd love to read both you and your students' responses! Post them in the comments area below or in the sharing center.
Hang in there, remind yourself this is THEIR time and FINISH STRONG!
