OK, I have opted for something simpler for my Ideas page. It will be a collection of links to my lesson plan wiki, where I will house all my lesson ideas. I am still restoring handouts and Power Points, so forgive me if some of the links aren’t working correctly yet.
I read a couple of good articles in Reader’s Digest. I know a lot of you want to give me a hard time for reading that magazine. Go ahead; I can take it. Anyway, one was an excerpt of Frank McCourt’s new book Teacher Man, and the other was about cheating. I have decided I definitely want to read McCourt’s book, as it looks decidedly more uplifting than Angela’s Ashes, which I couldn’t finish. I have some thoughts about these two articles that I want to share here.
My school is also embarking on professional development regarding assessment, and I have some good articles that I would also like to discuss here. So, watch this space! I’m going to be discussing education here again, soon!
