Does your brain lie to you? (6 lessons for students)

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network

Recently I had the opportunity to spend 45 minutes addressing the 10th and 11th grade students at Estill County High School in Irvine, Kentucky. The topic of my address was Does Your Brain Lie to You (and do you believe it)? I thought that some of the ideas from that address might be ideas that teachers… Continue

Assessment FOR Learning - Don't confuse it for a specific strategy

This was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.


When faced with a new concept it is natural and necessary to attach meaning to that concept. Sometimes when we find an understandable example of that concept we begin to confuse that idea for the concept itself. As Salem High School and the City of Salem Schools strive to… Continue

Using Quotes to teach life lessons

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.


Do you remember your parents or grandparents sharing with you the same words of wisdom over and over again until you could quote them in your sleep?


If so, then count yourself blessed. Those words of wisdom spoken by an adult who cared helped to shape you and mold you. Even though at times you were probably tired of hearing those…

Why is Allen Iverson on Assessment FOR Learning?

(This post was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.)


Members of this network may have noticed a video that seems out of place on an educational social network. The video is of a post-game interview with NBA player Allen Iverson. Why in the world is that on here?

The 3 Magicians

This was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.


As spring break is approaching - or what's left of it after we make up snow days - I have been thinking back to last year's spring break. I have to admit that the 2 or 3 weeks leading up to spring break were not exactly my favorite. It is not uncommon for people to ask, “How can you be a high school administrator? Don’t you get tired of dealing with nothing… Continue

Here are 2 ideas for how you can use these songs:



1. Use the song as a Do Now/Bell Ringer activity in your… Continue

"If only someone had told me that when I was a freshman!"



What a sad statement to hear coming from a high school senior. High school is all about choices. As educators we must take every opportunity to help students and parents make better informed choices early on in their high school careers.

AFL on the Football Field
