Welcome to Byrdseed! I'm Ian Byrd and I try to help teachers around the world write lessons that get kids' brains sweating 🧠💦. You'll find my writing here and my video lessons at Byrdseed.TV.
What can I do for you?
Want to implement Depth and Complexity
A powerful framework for differentiating that works with all content, works with all ages, is easy to get started with, and gives you room to grow. The hype is real.
Want to encourage curiosity?
There was a shocking lack of student-driven curiosity in my classroom. Now I'm a bit obsessed with repairing kids' ability to wonder at school.
Want some Recommended resources?
Books, websites, apps, and tools that you'll find useful, including some fantastic reader roundups!
Want to know about Social Emotional Needs?
When we pay attention to academics, but not to our students' social emotional needs, we're missing half of the picture.
