It’s May…and the end is near!
The end of the school year, that is. And while that carries with it the promise of summer break, there’s an awful lot of ground to cover (in a short space of time) before we get there.
That’s why today I made you a tiny video about two things I think both students and educators should do–one right away and one immediately after the school year ends–to make the most of this month and set you up for success next year.
Wanna’ know what they are? Watch today’s 5-minute video to find out:
Can you take 15 minutes right NOW to get started on the first thing? If you do it, feel free to hit reply and send me a picture of your one-page, anti-cram plan!
And can you find a friend or family member to help you with the second and put time in your calendar to actually do it? You can write out your observations, but having a plan to share them with someone else will help ensure you follow through!
As I said in the video, I’ll be talking more about that Solid Reflection Conversation at my next, free, live, office hours session this month. You can sign up here to be part of that conversation and also send me whatever question you most need answered this month! I can’t wait to talk to you.
See you next week!
If you can’t be there live at my office hours session, sign up, send me your question, and I’ll send you a replay with my answer! Don’t be shy about getting the help you need.
Love, love to hear what you have to say, Gretchen! You have made a difference in how I proceed personally, as a coach and my students are getting the message about learning.
Observation on your videos – not sure if it’s just me, but worth the though – when I watch through email, there’s no way to like the video. I have to search you on YouTube and find the video have the option to do so.
Maria, I’m glad you’re enjoying the videos! And, yes, I know–it’s hard to know whether to try to get traffic on my website or my YouTube channel. I so appreciate you going the extra mile to give me love on YouTube!! I’ll keep thinking about my process…
