Welcome to the 2019 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge! All educators are welcome to participate and reflect on their practice this #8weeksofsummer – a break for reflection and connection.
Teachers may be relaxed by this point in the summer. Most people learn better when relaxed and enjoy adequate time to learn.
Think about your ideal learning conditions, those of your students, or any learner in general.
What are optimal conditions in which to learn, for you, and for students?
Have a Blog: You may blog on a traditional blog or use Facebook; any platform with an independent URL for each post.
Write & Include: (1) This at the start of your post: “This post is week 4 of 8 in the 8 Weeks of Summer Blog Challenge for educators.” and kindly link that sentence to http://HotLunchTray.com.
And (2) please use the hashtag #8weeksofsummer in social media shares of the post.
Comment on my Prompt: Post a link to your blog in the comments of each of the 8 blog prompts in a timely fashion (We are on vacation, and you may not even know which day it is, so let’s say within 3 weeks of the post).
This 2019 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge runs June 9 – July 28, 2019, and is for any educator. The challenge prompts educators with the opportunity of reflection. Each prompt asks them to blog about their reaction, thoughts, experiences with some facet of their professional practice.
Check HotLunchTray.com June 9th and every Sunday until July 28th for prompts.

I tried to articulate the optimal learning conditions for my students and me. It is good to think about! http://mrsdkrebs.edublogs.org/2019/07/06/optimal-conditions-for-learning/

This prompt was such a catharsis for me. Some of the other were tough (although I enjoyed the challenges). This one just flowed right onto the page. Thanks again! https://www.shutthedoorandteach.com/2019/07/are-you-reaching-your-introverted.html

I think I went in a different direction than what your prompt desired. But when you read it, I believe you will understand. https://grumpyoldteacher.com/2019/07/16/the-lead-learner/
