Notes on RaceTalk Newsletter

I started this newsletter because I wanted a place to connect more intimately with my Racetalk Warrior Community.

Each month you can expect
 a short essay (and sometimes not so short -- you know I often have lots to say!) about something I've been thinking about, something I've learned in the classroom, or thoughts on a current event.

In this video, learn one of the key strategies I use to build trust and foster community in my classroom starting on the very first day.

I share why this works and how you can adapt this strategy and activity to your classroom or lab, no matter what subject you teach.
