One thing every classroom teacher must do
The approach to classroom management requires a completely different mindset today. In the past, compliance was a given and support at home was not in question. Today, teachers must strive to reach EVERY student and hold them ALL to high expectations.

Engaging students with historical simulations w/ Dave Harms
"I've never been good at history." This is the mental barrier heard by many history teachers. Today, history is not solely about memorizing facts and events. It's about judging mistakes and praising good decisions throughout history. This involves a high level of analysis. Students have to go on a journey through time and see the event from the perspective of the people who were there. That is the challenge of a teacher who desires to maintain a high level of rigor in their lessons. Mr. Dave Harms joins this edition of The Marvin Byrd Show. He shares with us a simulation he created to increase rigor and engage all students.

What if it could be better?
500 years ago, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the church. His actions caused many to rethink what was going on in the Catholic Church at the time. His actions were controversial at the time because most just accepted the decisions of the church without questioning them. We need people in education today who have the spirit of Martin Luther to be free to speak up and respecfully as the question: What if it could be better?
