One of my favorite new blogs to follow is Sonya Terborg’s. Every time I read a new post from her, I feel like we are kindred spirits. Recently, she wrote an article called, “Teaching Without a Plan…What???” in which she addressed how we, as teachers, can approach being “the guide on the side”. I think that her Inquiry Cycle poster, which you can download as a PDF from her site, will be a perfect resource for me as I guide my gifted students through Genius Hour this year. I highly recommend reading her entire article, and to visit some of the other posts on Sonya’s site.
