About Me
I teach Applied English and College Bound English, classes for seniors. I am also an MA student in Literature at the University of South Dakota. Soon, I'll be teaching a blogging class to other teachers in our district, though I'm really a novice compared to many of you.

Hi Matt, I would like to invite you to visit my vocabulary building website for middle and high school students. Here you will find short and fun vocabulary videos. Kids enjoy watching these and learn new words quite effortlessly! Thanks!

Greetings Matt:
Here we go! A new semester is starting here 1/27. That means I have a new batch of students. Again, seniors might be easy for collaboration based on maturity. However, I have two frosh sections as well.
Thoughts about how we can connect? What would be easiest (apparently that is my theme for my 1st year in high school!).
Let's make SOMETHING happen?!?

Hi Matt!

Happy New Year! I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from South Dakota!

You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks for the nice words. I see you're teaching a class on blogging. Though I haven't looked very hard, there doesn't seem to be a lot of empirical research on blogging - just a lot of opinions. I agree that it is a great tool for the classroom, but haven't heard of any great studies on it. Have you found any good sources/studies?

Sketchcast is a great tool to record what you're writing/drawing. Here's an example. It's easy to embed your sketchcasts and you can voice along with it. There are a bunch more that I've posted on my classroom blog. A similar app is sketchfu, but the site seems to be down a lot. Both work best with a sketchpad.

You are very kind (and funny).

When you got to You Tube or TeacherTube and select a video, you will see am "embed code." Copy this and then paste it onto your Blogspot page.

When you are working on a post in Blogspot, you select the "HTML" option, then paste in the code.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

When you choose a story from the On the Media site, you are given a bunch of options (listen, download, for example). One of them is "Embed HTML." When you click on it, you get a snippet of code which you paste into you website (blog in my case) when editing it.

Have fun. It's cool.

I can't imagine teaching well without also being a student.
