This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt.
Challenges come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, the biggest challenge of the day is getting out of bed with a positive attitude. Sometimes, the daily challenge is going to be having to work with a difficult student. Sometimes, the challenge lies in teaching a topic or skill or unit that you really don’t enjoy. Learning strategies to address these challenges is the way in which we overcome them.
Prompt: Write a post about challenging situations.
Here are some ideas or topics you may wish to include:
- Share your biggest teaching challenge and explain how you overcame it
- Write a motivational “how-to” for overcoming a common challenging situation.
- Do a review on a book or website that has helped you overcome a challenging situation. What was the challenge? How did the book/website help you?
- Discuss any thoughts or experiences you have about challenges in education.
- Talk about a time when a student was facing a challenge and you provided strategies to help the student. What were they? How did they help?
Did You Miss A Post?
We understand. Sometimes it can be a challenge to get your weekly post in “on time”.
But don’t fret, you can always publish posts late, skip a topic and come back to it, or choose a post of a different topic if that week’s prompt just doesn’t interest you.
The #EdublogsClub is for you – so make of it what you wish!

Here is my post about overcoming the challenge of engaging in a new community.
A bit late to the game but here is my post for this prompt and my Listicle post will be posted Monday Morning!
I enjoyed pondering this and posting. Too bad I forgot to share it here! I even have a great visual!
I hope that you will read my post and share your vision of successful technology integration, make a comment, or suggest a way to categorize skills.
Hi all – I keep challenging myself to get out of the way!

Well, I’m late to the party on this one, and went off topic again. Here’s my post about a wonderful California School Library Association Conference (with links to some great sessions, too). http://www.janelofton.com/2017/02/csla17-conference.html#.WKR5dhIrJE4 BTW, I love the maze image in Ronnie’s post.
Hi Ronnie and co,
I wrote about challenges in blogging and how to keep the momentum going.
My post this week (late again). http://ahslibraryreads.edublogs.org/2017/02/14/edublogs-club-week-6/
This week’s challenge allowed me to go back to a post from last year and spend some time re-working it. Thanks Ronnie for the challenge this week and the opportunity to revisit a post I was never totally satisfied with the first time around: http://aschaefersalinas.blogspot.com/2016/04/finding-leaders-or-unicorns.html This post contains some of my thoughts about the challenge of growing more leaders in education.
Here ya go! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sometimes challenging is a good thing. It stimulates us and pushes us to do new and innovating activities. http://ontheroad.edublogs.org/2017/02/13/challenging-is-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder/
I’m spending more time on the blog than on lesson planning….
Another terrific prompt Ronnie. I am challenged by finding the correct balance between my digital life and my personal life. http://www.rtschuetz.net/2017/02/finding-fulcrum.html

Looking forward to reading everyone’s hacks for thriving during challenging situations.
Here’s my 2 cents: http://pblife.edublogs.org/2017/02/10/edublogsclub-6-challenge-accepted/
WoW, I am so impressed with your organization and time management! Sounds like your school year and calendar year are both going very well.
23 weeks nearly done and still intact. I love my students still, so that’s a sign it’s going well. Thanks for your kind words.
WOW! I wish I could be half this organized. Well done you!
A challenge… in the library https://readersbeadvised.wordpress.com/2017/02/09/challenges/
Love the meme! I’d forgotten Doug Johnson’s “mission”–thanks for the reminder. BrP
This was tough. I don’t normally deal well with challenges but I have a coping method which helps me with the pressure http://blogs.brighton.ac.uk/nd151/2017/02/07/challenge/
I love the clever strategy and breaking a challenge down into smaller “challengettes”!
I am so proud of myself!! I haven’t missed a single prompt. Here’s my very controversial post.
It’s brave to deal with such issues in public. Good post. I’ve always felt the problem with “school choice” is that it’s the schools that get to make the choice!
