Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!
Donald Miller isn't an educator, but he routinely shares ideas and blogs that are wonderful tools for teachers who are trying to go beyond the content with students. This post would be a great one to share with your students. Have them read it as a Do Now - or perhaps you could even tie it more directly into your content - and then lead a short discussion on what you learn from them. It's a good one.
