I built The 5-Day Teacher Challenge on a simple idea: getting better as a teacher can happen quickly and be fun, particularly if you are exploring the possibility with colleagues!
If you are looking for ways to raise your game in the classroom, I invite you to try the five challenges below. Each provides a pair of options, and by the end of your five days, I suspect you’ll have added several new tools to your teaching toolkit. Have fun, and please share your ideas two ways:
- tell about your experiences via social media, adding me and these hashtags: @rushtonh, #5DTC, #edtechteam, #SomethingSpecialEDU, #edchat, and #teaching
- let me know your thoughts, suggestions, or concerns via the 5-Day Feedback form

If you like the ideas you find in the Challenge, I’d love for you to take a look at the 50 suggestions I made in my book from EdTechTeam Press, Making Your Teaching Something Special. Each chapter is short (2-3 pages). The ideas are broken into the five areas above, and among the chapters you’ll find what’s in each day’s challenge, but in more detail. There are yet more ideas for making your campus and community a personally and professionally rewarding place for all in Making Your School Something Special. A portion of what I earn from the sales of these books goes to support the educational charity I run, Next Vista for Learning.
You’ll find plenty of great books at the EdTechTeam Press page; please take a moment to see what they offer.
Thank you for giving this a look, and for being the kind of teacher always working to reach the next child!
