Teaching that Sticks
Teaching that Sticks owes its title and its purpose to the remarkable book Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip and Dan Heath. As educators, whether in the classroom or in the training room, we are constantly seeking ways to give our ideas "stickiness," a term coined in The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell. This blog is intended to share one teacher's insights and observations about small ways to make teaching stick.
