It is that point in the school year when the newness of school has worn off, the personality of both teacher and student are flourishing, and perhaps, a little motivational “umph” is needed to make it until semester’s end.
Enter Full-contact teaching. “Full-contact teaching also involves targeting individual students that need help, finding out what their challenges are, getting to know them, and offering invitations and opportunities to succeed,” Johnson write in his blog at Edutopia.org/Ben Johnson’s blog.
Johnson compares full-contact teaching to football. As this analogy is lost on me, after reading his blog post, I differentiated his content similarity more toward shopping on Black Friday (i.e. get in there and git ‘er done). The analogy is yours to make and his points are encouraging.
