Transform Your Classroom by Unlocking Your Rubber Room

By Perry Binder, J.D.

Rub•ber Room (noun) A confining mindset where thoughts and possibilities bounce around but never turn into action. At whatever level you teach, K-12 or college, the continual cliché to “Have a positive attitude” is intended to keep you inspired and refreshed in the classroom. Drawing from hilarious or serious lessons as a teacher and former student, this article digs down below that cliché with examples of what makes us tick as people, so we can in turn be better teachers. It is an exploration and celebration of our childhood motivations, passion to teach, and the special quality that fires us up to walk into a classroom each day.

Substitute Teacher Asks: May I Do It My Way?

By Barbara Pressman

I’m not comfortable with the way my class operates. Students are free to snack whenever they want. They sharpen pencils, use the bathroom, and get drinks. They always work in groups, very noisy! The classroom teacher is quite effective and comfortable with her methods. But it’s not my style. I’m afraid I won’t be successful in this loose climate. But I feel uneasy about changing things.

He sits at his desk all day and procrastinates. I subbed in his room today. When I wrote the note to his teacher, I explained that Jared did not complete his Social Studies test, or any other work. I know I’m responsible for students completing their work. I feel as if Jared’s actions …
