Times They Are A-Changing

To quote the legendary Bob Dylan's famous song, "The times they are a-changin'". I am now currently teaching Math to some of the best and brightest students this side of New York. Each and everyone of them makes me proud as they have the skills in analytics and understanding numbers that may just surpass other schools.

But regarding more about me, I mentioned that times indeed change because just a few years back, I was the student and I was the one making fun of other people, or… Continue

Poetry writing skills.

The white hair

I looked into the mirror in despair

And saw a wrinkled worried face!

I tried to shave and comb my hair

My eyes suddenly looked into space!


They saw the coming shadow of death

As I coughed but not laughed aloud

Carousely spendthrifting my wealth!

Of my wife and property I felt very proud


My ears suddenly heard a wave.

I could hear it ,yes feel it so near

"Look at thyself…

Confessions of an Emoticon User

I first started writing this a while ago and actually wasn't planning on posting it here, thinking not many would empathize, but then I saw a great comment by Grocheio that was pointed out by Ira Socol, so I guess I'm not alone! Here I go...

Do you ever use emoticons? In case you're not familiar with the… Continue

Rethinking Minimum Word Requirements

Anyone who's ever had to write an essay with a minimum word requirement understands the frustration of having to fill up pages with BS. I can understand why a lot of teachers impose these limits, but I don't think they have the effect we desire.

Desired Effect:

Students are thorough enough to complete the assignment.


The assumption we are making is that there is a specific, optimal range of words for discussing a topic and that we… Continue

The Power of Audience

It's quite common to hear people talk about how students benefit from having a genuine audience for the work that they do in the classroom. Personally, I have always agreed with this because it just makes sense. But I am beginning to experience for myself just how much of an impact an audience can have. My latest classroom podcast featured some student samples that were based on the writing trait "Word Choice." Normally this would hardly be a topic… Continue

The Open Writing Space

[cross-posted from K12 Open Ed]

I've been thinking about creating a high quality curriculum resource that is open and have focused in on writing as a subject matter. Why? First and foremost, I love writing and think it has the ability to transform lives. Beyond that, it transfers to all other subject areas and grade levels, and success in writing is correlated to success in many other endeavors. Writing is fun and rewarding. Technology can… Continue

Teaching students how to comment...

About 1.5 weeks ago I rolled out my class blog (Mr. Lane's Computer Applications/Web 2.0 Blog) as an interactive tool with my 8th grade Web 2.0 technology class (the first few weeks it served, more or less, as a Web 1.0 tool). After working through the layout of the blog, we read together a post, and then I asked them to submit a comment. Before they commented I spent some time discussing the importance of making sure the comment was free of spelling… Continue

Aliterate Teachers

Okay. So I'm sitting at a "Literacy Institute" and I'm surprised by a comment from a teacher who says she doesn't like to read.

Doesn't like to read? An elementary teacher, in charge of teaching kids to READ, doesn't like to READ herself? What's up with THAT? That's like a boat salesman who doesn't like water! Or a astronaut who doesn't like space travel, or a baker who doesn't like bread... (Feel free to add your own analogy in the… Continue
