Common mistakes in bakasana For me, learning how to do crow pose was a pivotal moment in my personal yoga practice. All of the sudden, I felt like my practice had new dimensions and could go to new (literal) heights. It became less linear and the pose opened a door to something totally new. So when I teach the pose in class, I'm not surprised at the excitement I see in students. by juanita

Here is a great way for students to learn and practice how to properly cite their sources in the MLA style. How to cite from books, websites, and magazines are clearly and simply explained. How to cite from encyclopedias is also explained (though the process is very similar to citing from a book). Students are started off with guided practice and eased into independent practice. A paired assessment is also included to test student knowledge on how to cite properly. by yolanda

The new core talks extensively about conducting close reads. A common best practice is to have students “read with a pencil”. This allows them to find evidence, quotes, etc. directly from the text to mark and review later. I have created this toolbox page with common symbols for my class to use. They make these marks as they go along the passage (during the 1st read) so we can come back and discuss them later (usually during the 2nd and 3rd by geneva
