I've been trying to find an alternative to the usual group work, and also, I've long been wanting to try out "stations" in my live, virtual classroom. The trick was how to simulate easy movement, make clear goals at each station so I don't get run ragged, k...

How to Get Organized in Your 30th Year of Teaching
Many years ago, as a young, disorganized, overwhelmed, but still enthusiastic teacher, I fantasized about opening up my plan book in September and having every lesson on every page already filled in. A stress-free year, in which I'd never have to wing it. I...

Since I teach online, I can have a lot of students writing on the eboard at the same time. I've been using this to my, and their, advantage. Instead of getting everyone to do the exact same thing, I make sure to ask something in which there is potential for...

I had a flashlight moment recently. I was helping a student to learn how to balance chemical
