5 Ways to Teach Kids Essay Writing at Home

Teachers are busy people. They usually have enough time to go through the lectures and leave space for

discussions at the end of the class. When it comes to teaching essay writing, however, they don’t have enough space

in their program.

They will explain what the essay structure is supposed to look like. They will assign a topic. And that’s it. The

student is left under a huge pressure to figure out the essay writing process.

As parents, we’re responsible to make this…

Simple Ways To Be A More Compassionate Teacher

The lack of social and emotional skills can lead to burnout. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to develop these

skills. No one taught us these skills when we were kids. We also didn’t know that they’re vital in our adult

life and they can be developed.

Schools are just starting to understand how emotions can affect students’ way of learning and overall well-

being. Thus, students who were lucky enough to have compassionate teachers growing up have been trained

to develop…

How is WordPress Redefining Website Design and Functionality By Offering Super-Friendly Database Management Options?

Any version of WordPress is easy to handle and install. A standard WP site has three components – the installation, contents of the wp-content directory and the primary database. The wp-content directory contains all the themes, plug-ins, and the uploads.

One Teacher's Approach to Digital Citizenship

In the beginning

When I began teaching digital citizenship in 2010 it was an innocent time. We were only worried about the students believing all websites were real. I directed students to The Dog Island website, where you could pack up your dog in a crate and send him off for a week long romp on a beach. The site was very believable; pictures of the dogs, and even information about how to ship your dog. There’s other sites too; you can learn…

I finally understand what Parent Teacher Conferences are all about

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?

Really?

This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in…
