You are WINNING
I heard a story recently about an Instructional Technology Specialist who observed a great lesson in a teacher's room. The ITS said to the teacher, "Wow! That was wonderful! I'm so impressed!" and the teacher replied, "I know, but don't tell anyone or they'll all want to steal my lesson, then everyone will be doing it." The ITS person walked away in disbelief. In our field, "everyone is doing it" when "it" is a great lesson is our #1 goal. How could anyone have so completely missed the point? Sharing, being copied, or whatever you want to call it is WINNING in education! Be a winner today; share something.
