Still gonna be a little careful about oversharing, but I did send an email out about the fall and specifically that I don’t see how I can give walk-in help with reaidng and writing, unless there are new hires. I was chastised by soon-to-be-supervisor because I seem to have already decided my ability to help […]

The next thing is “Cornell notes” — welp, I don’t need no stinking badges. I might go back and do that for one of the assorted training things I do and stick it in later but right now doing that would be a DISTRACTION and … the whole purpose of this exercise is to congeal […]

I signed up for a MOOC but the timing is in relative down time so … looks like it will be happening. Executive Summary (or: TL/DR) Multiplication is often not fully understood. See https://resourceroom.net/UDLMult/ for a way to teach it concretely and thoroughly. Exponents are fun, too. Here’s a fun story in a two minute […]

Seems — as of a week ag — that we need to move out of our space by fall. This week an admin is inquiring “what do you need?” When we moved over here, we planned before we moved so that they could put walls and things in where it made sense. When we moved […]

One of my tweeple is also doing duolingo for Spanish. I mentioned that I’d briefly scanned for “duolingo for math.” Yes, it’s discussed and there are several “things modeled after it.” Sigh, though, the modeling after is … the yays and the clicks and the levels …. the stuff of “how can we structure this […]

Antiracism/UDL reflections

Just had our Wednesday “implementation” book group. We’re small but mighty: 3 of us. Our list to think about: — how can we create a safe space/environment for students to use their voices discussing current events that happen about racism? Not in general, but … when they happen. Like when another 20 year old gets […]

Yes, I’m having to curb time on duolingo. It’s got me thinking about that learning stuff thing. Remembering this comic about learning being like riding a bicycle… that has lots of dowhill FUN FUN EASY parts between the challenges, compared to … *always being pushed.* *Why can’t we build a math program like duolingo?* Aspects […]

Whereas, I decided to try to replace some staring at the screen on twitter/fb time with learnign Spanish… I remember about what I expected — so the beginning is easy. I can’t really figure out how it works, though. There are circles with categories and I did the exercises in one and then went to […]

Just hung out at the Facebook video w/ Chris Woodin talking about teaching measurement. 12 people there…. but it’s recorded, it’ll be on YouTube. I *felt* like I was on zoom so I would gesture as if my video were on… then say “oops! no one can see~” and grab that beer 😛 but there […]
