I have a standing desk collab space for my students but they actually love sitting down at them (pretending to be really small) instead 😂

the most beautiful people you'll ever meet aren't always the ones who catch your eyes first. No, the most beautiful are the ones that can never be figured out. The one you could talk with for many hours and still have a million things to ask. The people who have mind so lovely and special, you can help but fall in love with them.

Love the sticky note idea. However, we are not allowed to give extra credit in my standards based district, and after awhile 'little goodies' that aren't food or pop don't interest my 8th graders.

Great ideas. I made my exit tickets worth 5 pts for completion - but they could earn up to ten points. This has turned out to be a great investment - students put full effort in and I can grade them in less than 5 min. My TA records all scores and I start the next day knowing what concepts they struggled with. I teach advanced middle school math.

FERPA doesn't allow for peer grading. My principal wouldn't allow it. Plus, some students complained to parents that they didn't want peers to see their low scores. So, I had students grade their own. If a student cheated, they got detention and a "0" on the paper.

This learning needs to start early. I wholly embraced Thinking Maps when it was introduced, but my students were seventh graders. There was great buy in to the instruction, but students rarely applied the strategies independently. I believe there is a sense of excitement and joy of discovery in reading for information. Please give young readers the tools and motivation to do this from the start so that these skills come naturally later on.

I'm also wondering about the shift in focus from math to recess. I have not seen a difficulty with that shift. And I think the reason for that lack of difficulty is most important.
Also, I believe it is possible to reach a goal without a plan. It might not be efficient but it is possible.

Tammy Ullsperger-could you and the FRC do PD on how to help us help students with NO prior schooling build executive functions? That could be really helpful.

Horrible article. I am a teacher , all classes have 30 kids , times 5 classes a day that makes over 150 you see in one day and that is Middle School you have observation , these ridiculous lesson plans that must be Handed in , And every teacher does her or his job the best they can ‼‼
01/14/2017 at 15:05
I had a lot of mediocre teachers. I survived. When I would tell my parent a certain class was boring they told me to just deal with it. Then they'd laugh. Because they know what I know now: how lucky I am as an American to have access to an education.
01/14/2017 at 15:18
Dear Edutopia, you have undermined the very profession that you are trying to advocate. As the kids say "you played yourself." Frankly I hope you lie in the bed you made graciously. This is pathetic.

This is a great article! I'm going to try to do something similar with my PEP students... what are the self-imposed norms of our teens for social media? How can we empower them to create a safer on-line environment for themselves?

Stupid article considering kids are killing themselves because of cyber bullying. There are WAY more important conversations to have with your kids about Instagram!

I've used the term (and the activity) "Brain Break" (I have also coined the phrase "Instructus Interruptus" as an amusing way to express the concept) in my presentations and courses to educators, parents, and students as a way for participants to realize the importance of time and opportunity to process and digress....it's gratifying how often I've had former participants share that they've used the concept in their classrooms with positive effect! Yay for brain breaks - we all need them!

Sometimes there is just too much over-analyzing simple things! Kids' minds do wander, adults minds do wander....is this a problem or just being a human being. Perhaps we should not put all simple behaviors under the microscope and just live!!!!!

I think most of the time when kids ask to go to the bathroom, they don't really need to go to the bathroom, they just need a break.

What really fries my bacon is the lack of compassion for human error. I'm not talking about habitual non workers. Students mess up, everyone gets side tracked once in a while. Zeros aren't an authentic reflection of life. Zeros don't teach they punish. That's not learning-
01/12/2017 at 01:55
I always give opportunities for re do and points for effort. But I have far too many students refusing to do work. It isn't fair that they earn a 50% on an assignment they never turned in when another kid earned a 60%. There has to be a balance. Kids should be encouraged to progress but they also need to be held accountable.

I use Snowball with an add on. I have a snowball jar and after the snow ball fight, the students put the snowballs in the jar. Every once in a awhile we have a snowstorm which helps for review. I only have a couple of students at a time, and I only see them 2 times a week. The kids love it!
