As a young teacher we are always told to post our classroom rules at the start of the school year. Rule number one was always “Practice Common Sense”. The problem was what was common to me was rather uncommon to my students. Halfway through the year, I covered the first rule with a bumper sticker. It said, “There they go. I must follow them as I am their leader.”
This week’s gathering of learnings features baby squirrels, edTech Unicorns, the life and death of low interest rates, and Nickel Creek. Also, the garden is filled with dirt.
My daughter visited Bowling Green University to check out their teaching programs. She rocked the visit – even the Second Life “simulated” classroom activity. But her and incoming classmates are more in demand given plummeting enrollment.
