We used to blog…how many of us can say that? This is very much true for the OOL (and me personally as I seem to have abandoned my personal blog about the time I joined ISB!). But like many bloggers, we are back with a renewed commitment to blogging and sharing. We are committed to improving our blogging and sharing on the #learnisb blog. Mostly we share articles, great work going on in the school, thoughts about what we are reading, resources etc. We also maintain a pretty up to date calendar for professional learning for both ISB and for the region, listing various workshop and conferences around Asia that you might be of interest.
So…our goal is to do better this year! Let’s see how we do…
(adapted from an earlier post in Aug. 2015)
The start of a new school year is always a good time to think about the beginnings our community is experiencing. As an international school we have beginning on multiple levels. There are new colleagues beginning their ISB experience, new students experiencing Beijing for the first time, new administrators working through the complexities of a large organization and all of us in our various years of service at ISB have new students, and sometimes new classes.
The ASCD Educational Leadership magazine in April of 2011 wrote about the academic and social/emotional transitions for children at various ages or points in their academic lives. As we get ready for our first full week of school, these ideas about beginnings are sure to resonate with some. There is a little something for everyone.

And here is a little bonus article I ran across this week….6 Questions to Ask your Students on Day One.
Have a great start to the new school year!
