  • Play Games!

    One of the strategies I have used to engage my students and to encourage academic growth is the use of games. Everyone plays games: young kids, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. Whether it’s a game of pinochle, solitaire, video games, board games, or puzzles, I’ve never anyone who didn’t game in some way. However, we all know those a-type ...

    I am the world’s biggest cry baby, always have been and always will be =’(  I cry in movies, I cry when I laugh too hard and there is no doubt in my mind that I will cry on my wedding day.  However, it never occurred to me until last Friday that yes, I will [...]

  • The Purpose of Punishment

    Consequences can be positive or negative, and they can increase or decrease the frequency of specific behaviors. However, some consequences can have virtually no effect on behavior whatsoever. This weekend two NFL players, Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan, were each fined $25,000 for a fists-a-flyin’ fight during the 4th quarter of a game ...

  • Bradbury's "The Veldt" Empowered My Civil Disobedience!

    Ironically, as a language arts teacher the last set of lessons I taught were for the short story ''The Veldt'' by Ray Bradbury. The truth is, my last week as a teacher I did not want to cheat my good students from their education, so I decided to search for something meaningful to teach which would carry me to survive throughout the week. As I ...

  • How to Lessen My Workload

    In a previous post I discussed how I combine skills when assigning work in my classroom. One poster responded, “that though this seems like a lot of work on my part, I do think and hope that it will pay off for me to try with my students.” However, I have actually reduced my workload and gotten more success out of my students. I ...

  • Obama Speaks to Kids

    President Obama gave his speech to students today on C-SPAN, and I had not planned on having my students watch it since it’s not directly germane with the course of study; however, my students requested to watch it, and I let them. Here is the transcript. I don’t really understand the objections to Obama’s speech since his ...

  • Get Them Out of Their Seats

    If you have ever had a class where everyone seemed like they had ADD, you know that movement during a lesson is critical in order to keep the students’ attention on the lesson. Plus, movement can help eliminate discipline problems as well. In an ideal lesson I have three distinct parts, so we shift focus and possibly location in the room at ...

  • JagWire Oral Sex Story Continues

    In March of this year I posted about the Emerald Ridge student newspaper and how proud I am of student journalists who raise difficult issues. Now, a small group of students quoted in the JagWire story are suing the Puyallup School District over the oral sex articles. Read the story here. While many may disagree with the content being allowed ...

  • Oldies but Goodies

    I may be unable to blog for a couple days, so here is a list of some of my more popular posts from my brief blogging history. I hope these links spark some conversation and, more importantly, some thought on a range of education topics. 1. Teaching Connotation and Denotation (and its follow up post and some poems to use) 2. Using the movie The ...

  • Cyber Police

    How much authority should school authorities have when students use the internet outside of the school setting? In my opinion, very little. I tend to agree with an editorial that schools should not be used as internet police. In my opinion, the only reason a school official should have any say over a student’s internet use outside of ...
