10 Blogs for Great Teaching


A blogger-friend told me recently that most of his top blogs have numbers in them: 10 ways to do this; 10 ideas for that; 7 tools for making life easy – that kind of thing.  Why?  I guess it’s because we want our online material to be easy to dip into; we want the complexity of life made simple. We’re attracted to blogs that offer that possibility.

I’ve had a look at my own blog stats and, sure enough, the lists often do well. Here’s a collection of  blogs or blog collections that fit the brief:

Behaviour Management: A Bill Rogers Top 10

10 Reasons to Love Teaching

10 Silver Arrows: Ideas to penetrate the armour of ingrained practice
