Un-universal design for learning

June 28, 2021


Yea, that’s what I’m having now wiht our “math literacy.” And I know their argument. Hey!!! It’s LIKE THAT IN THE REAL WORLD. My argument is the same: we want them to LEARN this so that they can deal with the confusing aspects in the real world. To wit: ALEKS has a series of problems […]

I’ve already had a student 🙂 This one is repeating a class and … has learned *so much.* As in, a living, breathing reason why our full service support is needed and beneficial. You really wouldn’t recognize this one as the same person. first time through, learning the whole array of navigation — here’s a […]

Groundhog day!

February 2, 2021


Just because I’m distractible doesn’t mean I … I’m helping w/ Elementary Ed math this semester. I wonder if it’s workable for the “I want to teach elementary but I’m not good at math” cohort. It’s full of really fun, varied presentations of basic concepts — I don’t know if they’re basic enough to be […]

Please Go and Bring For Me

January 15, 2021


And 3-day weekend! Yes, I took the bus this a.m. — but hadn’t successfully gotten my itty bitty computer to work so I couldn’t read the Long Thing About How Your Little Certificate Programs Keep Poor People Poor. I *could* read this little description of a way to teach multiplication called Please Go and Bring […]

Seeking unsuccessfully for the elusive template for building labeled number lines on geogebra. I’d hoped if I came back later maybe it would be more searchable. I just have to pretend I didn’t see that and do what I was going to do, anyway. I captioned the “intro to number lines” video . I’ll link […]

Excited :-)

November 10, 2020


Okay, I *am* an optimist. I’m easily infatuated with potential. I had about a 15 minute zoom call with “UDLPartners.” They’ve got a “Name it, Frame it, Tame it” video and the plan is to have “micro PD” videos — under 3 minutes. (Yes, we already speak the same language.) So now it’s time to […]

Camtasia rocks ;0

October 8, 2020


Camtasia got erased from work computer, but one email with my school address and I got download link. Remains to be seen: whether this is the latest version so in 30 days I’m asked to pay, or whether somehow I’m using something through the school account. I could look up old emails and see if […]

teaching “at different levels”

September 22, 2020


So, I have this setup working pretty well, though it SUCKS POWER MADLY so yesterday I was back to writing on whiteboard and holding it up to the camera b/c it drains faster than it charges so even plugged in… it ran out. ( I need to figure out how to “zoom” so that I […]

  Okay, I haven’t really done That Thing but I discovered that I’m a week off — it’s not prep week yet!   I took last week off except for checking emails occasionally… but now I *will* have this week to figure out … how to keep from feeling like I’m on a boat that’s drifted […]


December 18, 2019


  That’s happening today. I took the bus because the ride home was still lousy on Main Street… … and I wish there were an Inkscape forum.   I found good tutorials but this is, like CSS et al, at that level where you have to know somebody; “click and see what happens” has too many […]
