About Me
I've been playing around with technology with my students for the past several years. I'm looking to learn more, and to share ideas with other educators.

Hi Marion. I was wondering if you have students or educator contacts who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Marion,

With your interest in Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.

Hi, I'm so sorry if I was confusing. Let me clarify. I used to be very textbook-driven. But - starting Jan. 09, our district is requiring us to write in standards/anchors in our daily lesson plans. So I turned to the PDE site to find standards and anchors. (Actually if you go to, you can join for free for a year - you can then print out standards in a more user-friendly format than the PDE website - you'll end up with MUCH less paper.)
So - just in the last week or two, I've experienced a oersonal paradigm change. My folder of standards and anchors is now what directly drives me to make instructional decisions. Looking at standards/anchors/eligible content is a great starting point to reflect about what I've taught so far, and what I will plan to teach.
As far as pacing, it will depend on your district. Do you cover a great many topics somewhat superficially, "touching on" concepts, or do you teach fewer concepts in more depth? Depends on your district, and you.
The PDE website has sample test questions. I'm not advocating teaching to the test; however, knowing what kinds of questions are going to be on state tests are helpful when considering what to teach, when to teach, how long to teach it in the time you have.
If this still didn't answer your question, I guess I didn't understand it. If you are looking for resources, a great site is It it a huge site, and a great starting point for discovering new plans around any curriculum (almost!).
