Shannon Dipple - Primary Education Osis


Shannon here, from Primary Education Oasis. Thanks for stopping by.

You're at the blog update page, where you choose how you want the latest articles and teaching tips delivered to you.


The core philosophy behind Primary Education Oasis is that great teaching demands results - our goal is to improve student achievement.

Teaching strategies must:

  • be evidence and results-based
  • raise achievement 
  • emphasize higher order thinking
  • provide reinforcement and recognition
  • develop informal, formal and academic vocabulary
  • teach students to question, hypothesize and generate new ideas 

...and that's what you will find at Primary Education Oasis.

It may not always be the cutest idea (I drool over Pinterest and wish I were more crafty!) but after 20+ years of working in elementary education and growing students in all areas, I know what works and what doesn't.

I personally love using Feedly.  It is more like reading a magazine than a news reader.  Use #s to find keywords for more teaching ideas and blogs.

You can also follow Primary Education Oasis at other social media.  Your choice, your teaching tips...just how you want them!
