The first step to earning a Trail of Breadcrumbs badge is to learn something new.
There are several ways to do this:
- Mentors: Learn from a colleague who has already earned the teacher or mentor level badge.
- Workshops: Participate in a Trail of Breadcrumbs writing workshop.
- Books: Read selections from books by Gretchen Bernabei.
- Videos: Watch videos on the Trail of Breadcrumbs YouTube channel.
WRITE, TEACH, MENTOR
The next step is to apply your learning in some way.
When you use what you’ve learned in your own writing, you earn the Writer level badge.
When you teach students how to apply what you’ve learned in their writing, you earn the Teacher level badge.
And when you mentor colleagues, showing them what you’ve learned and how to use it in their teaching, you earn the Mentor level badge.
The final step is to submit evidence of your learning and share it with the Trail of Breadcrumbs community.
NOTE: You’ll need to be signed in to submit evidence of your learning and earn a badge.
