    to live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. (1)

    Writing sub plans is the task I dread most as a teacher. It is time-consuming and often the best-laid plans go awry. Substitutes misinterpret directions or students use that excuse to claim that they were led astray from a meaningful task. I have found a few digital applications that have changed the nature of the sub-plan to one that empowers the student with more opportunities for 1:1 engagement and more responsibility. No longer do I write a sub-plan for the sub alone. The paper copy left on the desk might contain a few private instructions

    Increasing Student Engagement through Belongingness and Cognitive Rigor-3

    There is a certain about of pressure that comes with being a high stakes teacher, okay, it is a ton of pressure. A high stakes teacher is a teacher whose class performance on a standardized test is directly tied to the School Performance Score. At a small school, this means there are only four or five classes that are responsible for almost a quarter of the school’s rating. At a large school, there could be 20-40 classes responsible for this score and that leads to the comparison problem, “Why are your students at 50% and

    How do you.....DBQ-

    After realizing my endless stacks of grading were threatening to swallow my sanity, I took the leap into embracing technology. However, what I found initially was that while stacks were fewer and my desk cleaner, my anxiety levels were not lower. In my quest for a new organizational system, I moved to using for scoring essays online. My new system proved incredibly effective at not only creating clean surfaces, but at showing me where I was failing my students, and where I was failing was giving effective feedback. I needed to give more feedback

    Comfort Zone

    Today we have a plethora of resources available to use in our classrooms. This allows students to get a meaningful text at their level. Matching text to students allows them to read more independently, practice note-taking skills and learn about classroom standards or content in a meaningful way.  Each student in our classroom comes to us with different abilities and it is our responsibility to meet their needs. Guided reading had been in practice for over 15 years. Students are grouped according to their instructional level and taught phonetic decoding, comprehension, and fluency skills. Many companies

    Classroom Battle Tips- You Can Win the War

    urnA few years ago, my best teacher friend and I decided the entire population of the world could be dived into two kinds of people: spreadsheet people and stack people. Spreadsheet people sort and file. They label and color-code. Their organizational world is akin to the beloved spreadsheet after which they are named and on which they craft everything from to-do lists to data sheets. Stack people, on the other hand,…well, they make a bunch of stacks. I am most definitely a stack person. Now one should not automatically assume that stack people are completely
