When looking back over the year of Upper Grades Exchange posts I wrote in 2011 for a “year in review” post I never finished, it was not difficult to see that you—my readers—are most likely to react and comment on topics that involve some amount of controversy. Technology in the classroom, education reform, class sizes, and gender equality were a few of the topics that garnered a fair amount of reader feedback.
Before walking too far into the wilderness of 2012, I wanted to invite you to submit your ideas for topics you’d like to see us discuss at the Upper Grades Exchange in 2012.
This blog was created to be your forum even more than mine, so please do not hold back. Do you want more tips and hands-on ideas for the upper grades classroom? Do you want to hear more about controversies affecting upper grades teachers? Do you want to learn more about The Mailbox personalities or other figures in the field of education? Do you want reviews of books concerning upper grades education? Do you want the Upper Grades Exchange blogger to visit you at your school? (Talk about a special guest!)
Here’s your chance. Don’t raise your hand and wait to be called upon! Blurt out your response. Court danger. Dare to be heard!
Welcome to 2012 at the Upper Grades Exchange.
