As we return to the classroom in January weâ€™re refreshed, renewed, and rarinâ€™ to go, right? If youâ€™ve been putting off shifting your classroom due to time constraints, fear, or confusion about what â€œshiftingâ€ is, now is the time to take that first step forward.

Still, a colleague assures me that Top 10 lists are a good way for folks to sample the product and become regular readers. Reason enough. And I’m sure you won’t mind if I add a few extra!
