@Dowbiggin I don’t think they are officially taking over for another few years, so we’re probably safe for a bit longer even if we wake them

@Dowbiggin at one point in my blogging history I used to get excited about ClustrMap results, then I learned about bots… :-(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Dowbiggin

@Dowbiggin no, I’m sure it’s live Twitter stalkers. The bots are sleeping tonight I’ve heard… :-)

ChromebookInst What tech writers don’t get about the Windows price drop: Schools want devices that just work, which is why iPads & Chromebooks cont to win.

@coach57 I’m game to host Aug 3rd - should we have “character education” as our topic? @JonnyCurriculum @rhinoglaze

.@JonnyCurriculum @rhinoglaze yes we absolutely do! Have we had a chat focused on character education yet?

@wmchamberlain I’m saying brain breaks will help engagement later. Turning off your brain creates “margin” for thinking later :-)

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to wmchamberlain

wmchamberlain Remember, we are dealing with kids not robots. Everybody needs some ‘wasted’ time.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:57 PM, Jul 27th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

.@MrP_tchr I think at least some of my Ss would say “when Dr Fryer talks” (& they aren’t making/creating) could be “wasted time!”

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to MrP_tchr

.@MrP_tchr certainly ‘wasted time’ is a relative concept - would be a gr8 topic to discuss/debate w/ students in class!

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to MrP_tchr

A8 I want to incorporate more “brain breaks” this year in my classes using @GoNoodle h/t @sfryer (will help w student engagement!)

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A7 avoid wasted time by planning engaging activities & always having extension ideas for students who complete basic expectations

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

@HaselwoodMath @MrsBeck25 I think math is the easiest subject to teach poorly in school

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to HaselwoodMath

@MrsBeck25 my 9th grade daughter has been wading thru a ton of math problems in her “summer packet” - ugh. SureOfTheValue

shahlock A7: i’ve blathered on endlessly about homework, but in a nutshell, homework ought to be “practice when no one is judging”

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 8:50 PM, Jul 27th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

A7 As a “specials” STEM T I’m blessed 2 not be required to assign homework. Our focus is building/making/creating in class! @iesSTEM

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

JonnyCurriculum A7: If you build strong relationships with students, you’ll be amazed at the amount of effort and work they’ll do for you.

@tbbrwn yes! Jane Nelson’s “Positive Discipline in the Classroom” goo.gl/GsCbbO = 1 of the best books I’ve ever read as a T

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to tbbrwn

A6 my favorite class routine as a classroom teacher has been end-of-day “class meetings” via Jane Nelson - very powerful

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6 As a “specials” T expectations are challenging b/c of time- I want to get right into content, but must address expectations 1st

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6 I’m going to establish & emphasize my classroom “attention signal” earlier & more clearly/consistently this year

shahlock A5: advice for new T: the more you try to control, the less you will control. if you want students to learn, first respect them

mrspants19 A5 For every negative, find two positives. And start writing your book of classroom funnies NOW!

lsmellott A5: Don’t copy what you did during student teaching. Different group of Ss. Be ready to deviate from your plan.

via Twitter for iPad (retweeted on 8:36 PM, Jul 27th, 2014 via Twitter Web Client)

A5 encouraging students to ask good questions & cultivating curiosity is often more important than “right answers”

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A5 remember we are all learners, sometimes we’re experts, sometimes we’re novices. Stay humble & stay curious!

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A5 Find a mentor teacher who can take you under their wing, apprenticeship learning is the best for teaching

.@wmchamberlain I used to have my grad students share “teacher impact stories” before co-teaching, many were bad stories like that

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to dougeb00

@wmchamberlain 1 of the other grad students I had classes with at TTU told that story about his middle school years

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to wmchamberlain

A4 the idea that teacher wanted every child to understand was: I’m in charge, & I will beat you if you don’t obey me :-(

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A4 worst “story of start of school story” I ever heard was west texas PE T in the 1980s, paddled EVERY child the 1st day of class

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A4 it wasn’t advice, but I had pre-service teacher classes which didn’t address classroom management at all - big missing piece!

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A2 Routines are huge in the classroom: setting expectations, establishing “norms” for behavior & engagement

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

@JMaxey1 I like your classroom expectation “Bring your A game!” @watersenglish @mrspants19
