## Work backwards to find a solution

End result: All of my students learn all of the content the district wants them to learn for the particular class they are assigned to.

Given: Students with varying motivation, math deficits, and scholarly habits.

So how do I get the end result?

My idea:

Students motivated to learn <---- Topics/Projects/Assignments that are interesting. <----- Teacher incorporates students interests into daily classroom lessons and activities. <------Teacher researches students and finds out about their interests.

## I'm starting over

After looking at the titles of my posts, I realized that there was no consistency to the message that I want to express with this blog. That led me to further define and simplify the purpose of doing this blog. I don't want it to be a blog of complaints, frustrations, anger and woe is me. I want it to be a resource for teachers like me who are looking to see what other teachers are doing successfully in their classrooms. So I depend on you to help me with that. What do you want to hear about? What do you want to see? Disclaimer: What is posted here won't necessarily come from me (but I will give credit where credit is due.)
