Often we try to accomplish something and for whatever reason we just can't get to our outcome no matter how hard we try. As educators there are so many things that we do well each an every day. When we try to implement change in our schools we often try and revamp what we are already doing.
This raises the question: Do we need to change or do we need to tweak what we are doing?
I saw this video last week and thought it was too good not to share. It speaks to trying to reach a common goal and along the way things just were not working out. By incorporating some of the old ways with the news ways, we may be more able to meet the goals that were are trying to achieve.
Don't be afraid to try new things. With that being said, if this is not working, make sure that you have the foresight to change along the way to fix any issues that may stop you from succeeding
Have you ever reverted back to familiar ways of doing things to meet a new goal?
