Fellow…

Possibilities abound.   EngageNY is looking for “fellows” to help develop their curriculum.  Oh, my, it is full of the vilified “not your parents’ algorithms” terms like “Hide Zero Cards,” which a quick search informs me are manipulatives for reinforcing that, say, 13 is really 10 + 3 — you represent 13 with a ten card and then the 3 card which is only big enough for the ones places covers up the zero, “hiding” it.

I like it 🙂

I just might apply, if only because the setup is my fantasy setup:   stay here and do my job which I love w/ students half of the time, and they pay half my salary to my school and half my time is spent doing their work.  As in, helping our broken budget ( the governor  is still hiring his cronies at top salaries  while the rest of us have no funding, per  this article )  … and having fun 🙂   — oh, and the curriculum is OER.

Students here already … but I *will* get that video recorded.   Distracted, I’m afraid, by that Kate Garnett manual for building concepts (that came w/ our FASTT Math software so … I can’t share, it’s not open… you should do a trial of the software just so you can get that massive PDF though…)
