Math and special-education teacher Cossondra George shares in this article several ways in which she spices up classroom lessons by deviating from the routine. George, a Teacher Leaders Network member, writes that among her tips are that she uses Fridays as a "fun day," distributes individual whiteboards to students as an alternative to paper and pencils, and lets students sit where they want for one day each month. She also suggests letting students teach mini-lessons and bringing food and music into the classroom.
