I Have a Question
Overcoming Teachers' Initial Barriers to Change
April 13, 2014


Featured Question
From Carla Arena: " I'm always interested in how we motivate educators to overcome their initial barriers to change. I've had some clues from this past decade working with very inspiring educators, but we can always learn from others and their own strategies."

the goal is not "change" but to help teachers find ways to improve their own teaching by modeling, teaching, supporting them in what they are wanting to do.

I'm just saying the goal isn't to change for the sake of change. That's what teachers resist when they think they don't have time or they've been down this path before.
