What is your plan for the New Year – 2013?

My plan is “learning.”

For the Wednesday Twitter chat for #educoach, I was thinking about my learning goals for 2013.  I began with a variety of words including some that had been included in previous posts. I stopped with “patience, listen carefully, and use questions to help others and myself reflect.”

After reading Arizona MS principal Jeff Delp’s December 31st blog about “today” (blog has been taken down), I decided to change my goal to “learning” – one word. I believe that I will be able to have “evidence” of my learning if I use patience and wait to hear what others are saying.  Then when I listen carefully as I listen with my mouth closed, I will also be able to “learn.”  And finally, as I use thoughtful questions to help others and myself reflect, I will have additional evidence of my own learning.  (In order to help improve student learning, I am a firm believer that I must also be a learner.  That means I will be modeling learning behavior as well!)

Last night, on the #educoach chat, participants were sharing their “Edu-lutions” for 2013.

Still thinking about one word  to describe 2013 or your goal for 2013?  Here are two more ideas.

Are you interested in making a “one-word poster?”
