I am excited to announce our upcoming webinar with Teach Like a PIRATE author, Dave Burgess. Next Tuesday, October 22nd, from 4-5pm Eastern, you will have the opportunity to hear about the PIRATE system from Dave and how he has transformed his classroom. Dave will spend a majority of this hour answering your questions. If you would like to submit a question, please share it as a comment to this post. Please submit your questions by the end of the day Friday. Click here to register for Tuesday's webinar.

Have you had the opportunity to interact with other PIRATES? Be sure to check out the Teach Like a PIRATE hashtag, #tlap, on Twitter.

  1. I would like to register for Tuesday's webinar but it will not let me. The link takes me to a page that says the webinar has not started and I can not register.

  3. I've signed up for the webinar, but I will be late coming in, as we have parent conferences scheduled, and I am not free until 4:30. This is my first webinar, and I'm not sure I'll actually be able to do it anyway! I do want to send Dave Burgess my best wishes for a great school year (as if it were needed.) I have bought three copies of TLAP, and already given one away to a wonderful student teacher, going out into the world! Thanks, Dave, for sharing your joy and success!

    1. Thank you, Ingrid, for your wishes and for helping to share the #tlap message. It is my absolute pleasure to share these ideas and I'm having a blast doing it.

    2. I made it in!!! (With a little help from friends!) Didn't get to listen the whole time, but got lots of good notes and good thoughts. Thanks again for joining in. It was fun! (Doesn't take much to make me happy, even after two 11 hour school days in a row: a full day of teaching, with a half day attached parent conference day.) It's harrrrrd, but I'm a PIRATE! ;-) I liked that you said support for risk means support for failure too. It isn't risk if there can't be failure. With our state RISE evaluations (started under the former Superintendent of Public Instruction) we must constantly prove our worth or be fired, primarily though test scores, but also in many other areas. Risk is a scary thing in education at the moment, when your family depends on your job. But you are so right about teaching not being about tests (or evaluations), it's about kids... Keep up the good fight, matey!
