The Two Rules of Resilience - Dave Stuart Jr.

The other day, I shared a video with my ninth graders made by a Michigan high school teacher and author, Chase Mielke. Chase had sent the video to me a week or so before, and I thought it connected well with a pair of burning questions my students and I had been pursuing of late: […]

But What About That One Student? Use 2x10 - Dave Stuart Jr.

Last time, I wrote about how our relationships with students are sure to break down. This is why I've added “Repair” to the CCP of teacher credibility that I wrote about in These 6 Things, Chapter 2: Care, Competence, and Passion. If you cannot identify and repair faltering student-teacher relationships, you're bound to be befuddled […]

Principles Must be Proven; Use “Value Drills” to Help - Dave Stuart Jr.

Identifying one’s principles is a good exercise. Here are some I hold that you might, too: All students have value as human beings. All students possess yet-to-be-tapped long-term flourishing potential. All students possess likable qualities. It’s good to know what you stand for, what you value. And, as I’ve written before, research suggests it’s helpful […]

Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to words that come out of your mouth."

The Dumbest Intervention Ever - Dave Stuart Jr.

Last week, our ninth grade intervention team was having its sixth weekly meeting of the year. There have been plenty of times where these meetings depressed me more than inspired me. All four of us are hard-charging, high-belief, high-will, high-skill teachers, but all four of us were struggling with the motivational mountains that seemed lodged […]

A Three-Question Checklist for Building Stronger Relationships through Moments of Genuine Connection - Dave Stuart Jr.

As I've shared before, relationships are not the point of a teacher's work, but they are one of teaching's most fundamental currencies and most gratifying rewards. With more American schools than ever before launching into all-online starts, many teachers are concerned with just how to build strong relationships with students from afar. The good news […]

Beyond Coercion: Thinking Deeper than Carrots and Sticks - Dave Stuart Jr.

One of the big things we discovered during the COVID closures of spring 2020 is that many of our students are presently motivated by carrots and sticks: credit or no credit, GPA boosts or GPA reductions, prizes or penalties, incentives or consequences. Most educators did not find this surprising. This “play the game” mentality is […]

Occupational Burnout is a Thing, According to the World Health Organization - Dave Stuart Jr.

Note: I wrote this months before the COVID closures, and upon rereading it recently, I found it as relevant today as it was back then. The teacher who works in an undisciplined manner — without boundaries, with no constraints — will experience chronic stress. It's like a law of human nature. There is no way […]

How to Write a Great, Kind Email (That Is, How to Write All Emails) - Dave Stuart Jr.

In a caustic age of casually scathing public rhetoric, great organizational cultures are built one edifying communication at a time. It is the case that good emails accrue their cultural benefits slowly and incrementally, but bad emails can extract their cultural deficits rapidly and semi-permanently. So the skill of writing good, kind emails is an […]

In my Advanced Placement World History: Modern course, I attach this page to the syllabus, and every month or so I have students read it.
