Hello world!

Hello from beautiful Vancouver, BC!

I took this photo while on a winter run.

Just what is this blog about? Well, this blog is focused on Instructional Strategies and will draw from various resources on the web and in print. This blog will look specifically at the topic areas of Active Learning, Positive Learning Environments, Motivational Strategies, Classroom Management, Questioning, Learning how to Learn, and Thinking Skills (Creative, Critical and Meta-Cognition).

Each topic is broken up into Concept and Teaching Strategies posts. Concept posts look at theories related to the topic whereas Teaching Strategies posts look at specific strategies that you can employ in the classroom. You will find multiple posts within each of the topic areas. The reasoning for this is two-fold: 1) The posts are more digestible broken up into multiple entries, 2) I write entries as I discover new tools, strategies, or connections between concepts.

There are Categories in the sidebar that enable you pull up just posts related to a particular topic.

Be sure also to check out the menus at the top of the page to learn more about me and to access other resources.
