Another school year is up and running. I’ve been very busy with training teachers in Moodle and the gradebook system. I’ve also assisted with almost all of the English classes in taking the STAR (reading comprehension) and TRAILS (information literacy/research skills) testing and will finish up the last class tomorrow! Now that I’ve got a few minutes to myself, I’ve been trying to clean out my RSS feeds (again). Here are some odds & ends I wanted to share:
Blogging on the Bay: The Heart of a Teacher – by Bill Gaskins – All teachers should watch this video of a student giving a keynote address to his school district’s teachers. It’s an embedded YouTube video, so you may not be able to view from work, but PLEASE take the time to watch from home. You wont be disappointed.
Self Check #260 – by Emily Lloyd – Toung in cheek, “muliticultural” books. I really love these doses of humor. I think it would be a hoot to work with this lady!
CNN.com: “Monster mom’ – how to avoid being one” – 7 tips on how not to alienate your son/daughter’s teachers.
Reader’s Digest: “13 Things Your Computer Person Won’t Tell You” – My personal favorite is #10 – get a MAC! Hehehe! Told ya so!
