Keep using your old stuff or start from scratch?

  • What do you think? Should we keep using the same content over and over again or should be start over ever year? Maybe there's an in between? Share with us your best practices for re-using content that's already been created while updating it to keep things relevant.

  • It isn't easy staring at a blank canvas to build a new lesson so I always use older files to inspire me. I open an older Google Slides and then add new pages with manipulatives, graphic organizers, and some new fresh videos. My students love when I play music videos that explain things like the water cycle.

  • If it is content that you use with every lesson then I say re-use. But there are times that new content needs to be created.
