In 2014, my book You've Gotta Connect, which gives teachers tools to forge strong relationships with students, was published. I promote that teachers be approachable and then inject some enjoyment into their courses. This hack will succeed on both counts!
On a recent commute to school, I came up with the hairbrained scheme of pulling my students into one of my ridiculous weekend body weight workout challenges. In order that we could all keep tabs on one another, we utilized Voxer...the
21st Century walkie-talkie.
This program will tell the story of this AMAZING classroom adventure through the stories of two remarkable high school seniors...Abigail Myers and Mason Wright. Please give a listen and give a weekend challenge, of some sort of activity it certainly doesn't have to be physical, a try.
