All too often, we skip over our students' social-emotional needs because we're too busy chasing the core, cognitive skills most associated with standards and exams.
In ignoring their key interests and overlooking their unique talents, it's no wonder our writers are reluctant to do the work...
The Social Classroom Calendar will help you change all that!
By engaging in these brief writing activities, consistently and over time, your students will be writing because they want to, not because they have to!
And that's because it lets them explore their passions and interests AS they build those foundational skills!
"Jill Pavich gives you the permission and freedom to explore what you instinctively know to be true, as a teacher, while also showing you how to align that ingenuity and creativity with the demands of the systems we teachers must work within. She's what we've all been waiting for."
Now I get it if you're hesitant...leaning on social media for learning?! Sounds suspect, right?
But here's the thing...
Just because WE didn't grow up knowing how to leverage online platforms for academic and professional reasons (I had to teach myself that!) doesn't mean our students don't deserve this know-how.
Communicating online involves reading, writing, using your own voice, and listening to those of others. As secondary ELA teachers, this is *definitely* our department!
