#PARCC: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
For the past several days my students have endured the new

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...

Their Moment
Every year in my school we run a 6th grade volleyball
intramural. The kids compete with their homeroom classes during a season where
their records are tabulated. It is really a fun competition and gets kids
excited to compete for their home room teacher and...

Classroom Management
When we start the journey of a teacher, nearly all of us had
the same goals in mind. We wanted to make a difference in the life of a child.

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!

Bullies, Trolls and Fakes

thinking a great deal about failure and how we “use” it in school as well as
outside of school. I worry we might be, for ...
