New Year, New Beginnings

After the winter break, it’s time to ring in the New Year! However, getting back on track from the break can be a challenge for some students and teachers. To help students and educators transition smoothly back into the classroom, here are some suggested titles from the OISE Library Collection to re-orientate and re-engage.

A new year also means a new start. As a long held tradition, New Year’s resolutions are commonly made to reflect on the past year and inspire resolutions for the New Year. To kick off the New Year, routines in the classroom that involve participation and productivity can help students motivate themselves. Teachers and educators can also take inspirations from guides and handbooks like Teach now! the essentials of teaching: What you need to know to be a great teacher, Teacherpreneurs, Classrooms that Spark!, Invent to Learn: Making, tinkering, and engineering in the classroom, and 3-minute motivators. Let these titles and more from the OISE Library Collection supplement curriculum development, and recharge and revive your classroom dynamics!
