Summer Slide
Inevitably conversations will begin to arise in teacher’s lounges across the country about how to avoid the summer slide. Brochures for summer school will be handed out and in some cases summer homework will be assigned. Teachers and parents alike will be w...

#PARCC: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
For the past several days my students have endured the new
Common Core State Standards aligned PARCC assessments. After administering and
proctoring for over 8 hours in three days, I have a few takeaways from this
high stakes test which we will do all over ...

It is hard but it is also fun and cool materials and tools to help you on the test. I don't know about if you had computers but I would say the computer one is easier than the paper ones which I like because I love typing:0

Really happy to finally get a copy of my newly published book into my hand this week. If you are in need of a read to support not only new teachers but also those looking to revolutionize their practice, I encourage you to pick up a copy...or two. :)

Educational Erosion
In my heart I believe every single teacher went into the
profession with the intention of changing lives and inspiring kids. I truly
believe this because the alternative is too horrible to contemplate. Yet, every
single one of us can name a teacher or two i...

Teacher Appreciation
Teacher appreciation week is a great week to be a teacher.
Lounges are filled with the smell of bagels and donuts supplied by thoughtful
parents. Lunches are catered in and appreciative administrators pick up the
tab. Students bring in treats and notes of t...

Happy
Recently in my Language Arts
class we watched a TED talk by a young man who was talking about hacked
education. At the beginning of his TED talk he was discussing the question kid
are always asked which is, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Natural...

Their Moment
Every year in my school we run a 6th grade volleyball

Classroom Management

Thanks for sharing this +Josh Stumpenhorst. The underlying relationships in a community of learners and the motivation of any individual learner to learn something new are the reasons our school district has focused on #InclusionaryPractices  and #AuthenticLearning . I feel really lucky to work in a place that understands and values this complex, yet accurate, approach to learning. As always, thank you for contributing to this conversation!
