- 6 – What are two small steps you can take to do this one new thing in your classroom?

- 7 – What are some resources that could be used to learn more about this one thing?
A7 #oklaed is an AMAZING resource. And Pinterest. And TpT. And Ss themselves. They're really quite brilliant.

- 8 – How will you share the results from the change that occurs as a result of this one thing – even it they are not so glamorous?

Favorite question and why?
- Erin: #4 – What is one thing you are wanting to try in your classroom – but are afraid? It forces me to really say it. Examine it and think about how to move. How do you eat an elephant?
- Scott: Q8: How will you share what your results are?
