Just started a new blog to meet APPR reflection requirements. I've always wanted to get one going anyhow and this was the perfect opportunity. One of my first posts is about using my Xoom to remotely access my school computer. Pretty cool.
I'll be posting about twice a month.

I understand that math is not always a students strong suit and may not always be the most interesting subject. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of how to make a basic algebra lesson more engaging for students at the fifth grade level (ex. n-5=8).

Hello fellow readers! The post that I am about to
write is going to give a few ideas and or thoughts as to why NCLB is a complete
failure. I think that the general consensus is that the overall effects of NCLB
is a resounding failure, albeit an admirable attempt by the Federal Government
to close the achievement gap between urban and suburban students.
The continual and constant testing that students
have undergone since the…

Early in my teaching career, I learned that if I can manage classroom movements, I can manage behavior. If I can manage behavior, students learn better.
An earlier post discussed the importance of quick and easy transitions between activities. David Ginsburg discusses smooth transitions in terms of …Continue
Today in class, I guided students through the steps of creating their own introductory wikipage for my Language Arts class. On this page, they included a welcome greeting using a “cool” text generator, uploaded a favorite picture using Morguefile.com, and added a favorite quote from a quotation site. These pages will be linked from a Student Pages site on our class wiki, and students will be responsible for maintaining them throughout…Continue

A era do compartilhamento
Hoje abri o meu Facebook, mandei felicitações aos meus entes, chequei o minha caixa de e-mails, mandei um link via Twitter, recebi um novo cliente via internet, pesquisei no Wikipédia, compartilhei alguns links via blog e estou quase todo tempo conectado. Não me vejo mais desconectado. No mundo tão evoluído, fechar os olhos é se fechar para as diversas janelas do aprendizado e conhecimento.
Imagino os grandes da história (Nietzsche,…Continue

Since reading Bill Ferriter's post on whether or not true formative assessment is possible, I've been wondering how I could make my own formative assessments more efficient. This post features a screencast of me looking at student work for the purposes of formative assessment.

UDL and Assistive Tech are very interesting things to compare.
As I look more in depth into UDL, I see that UDL involves creating a curriculum that allows full inclusion for students. AT involves adapting the curriculum and creating, using, and making use of different tools and concepts that allow students to become a part of the overall "UDL" ideal within a classroom.
It is important to remember that everything involved in Special Education go hand in…Continue
