Psychat returns tonight

If you are on Twitter, please join a very informal group of fellow teachers tonight for a live chat (of sorts) called #psychat. Beginning tonight, we hope to have #psychat most Thursday nights during the school year from 8-9 pm ET.

If you're wondering WHAT THE HECK IS HE TALKING ABOUT, check out this post from January by #psychat co-host Heather Kilgallon (@irishteach) and an older post I did about the same topic.

Since it's the beginning of this academic year and many folks haven't started yet, I would like to hold off on the academic topics and talk about the ways that you get geared up for the new year. What gets you motivated? How do you set up your classroom for success? What policies or procedures help get your class off to the right foot? And best of all, how do you use psychological principles in your classroom?

I hope that you can join us tonight!
