#CelebrateWithDE – Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time ends on November 5, 2017 when we change the clocks back. Get a jump start on the change by taking some time to consider…time. The resources in this post focus on time management, but you could also study the history of the practice which involves that most interesting of characters, Benjamin Franklin, who argued centuries ago that people could manage their time better if they adjusted their schedules to fit the changing daylight hours.

Use the strategy XO Let’s Go (Canadian Version) from the Spotlight on Strategies (SOS) series to encourage students to review and brainstorm time management tips and/or challenges they face. In this strategy, students form pairs, listen to each other intently, and add new content as they go. The strategy’s format can help students build upon each other’s thinking and is a great way to stimulate and frame conversations. After the exercise, encourage students to create fresh schedules to capture their new time management goals.
