  1. Thanks for running this. I want to use the last line as a quote when we start up our TPRS group again in the fall. There are so many teachers in our group who feel as though they have opened their eyes for the first time–I’m counting on some serious hand-holding from this diverse group on Ben’s blog as we go into the next year. In some ways, the second year is harder, because it’s not new any more, and the miracles don’t look so shiny. We need to keep the shine on, keep telling the kids they are amazing (a quote from Susie), because they will be–it’s just that our perception of them won’t be so much.

  2. That’s a great way of putting it! That after the first year the miracles don’t look so shiny. I had the pleasure of working with a student teacher for 7 weeks who had had other placements in traditional classrooms. When he saw what my students could understand in the stories and do with thier writing and speaking in 7th and 8th grade level 1 he was FLOORED! He had just come from a highschool classroom (level 3) where the students were doing well if they could write a couple of sentences and answer in a complete (usually parroted he said) sentence. I’ve been doing this for 6 years and thier accomplishments didn’t seem as astounding to me anymore…until I got to see it through my student teacher’s eyes. Taking back the classroom, I have been trying to keep in mind all his exclamations of wonder and astonishment…and it’s pushing the kids to work harder and impress me more. Other teachers are complaing about a slump where “the kids don’t want to work, it’s spring what can we do….”and I’m having the time of my life. Again. Just like the first time I tried TPRS. Thanks for the reminder!
