I just had a great idea for getting students to get outside and learn about nature! A virtual BioBlitz! Students record plants and animals they see using iNaturalist app and compete for the most species. Just wanted to share 😄

The group participation would fall under “projects”. I haven’t set one up myself before but I can post here again when I know more.

Warn them against stealing pictures off the internet! I follow some of the iNaturalist professional double-checkers on Twitter & this has been an issue with college classes.

But wow, iNaturalist is great! I think your students will really enjoy it!

Okay, so a lot of people have been posting their virtual teaching experiences.

It’s great to see everyone doing their thing BUT isn’t it against students FERPA rights to post their names?!

Called into the principal's office to discuss a parent's concern and was blindsided with accusations against me. I was "guilty", despite the fact I had previously documented and proven that this student twisted truths. I was not allowed to defend myself. Then I was told I was not a good fit for the school. I have been there for 13 yrs, 3 with this principal. Suddenly, I am accused of lacking empathy and told the students needed to be "protected" from me.
I don't know what just happened.

Our district is moving all employees to district pay starting next school year. There were multiple employees that were employed/paid through our local temp agency. While it’s great that they are now offering this, the downfall is that those employees that have been working at the school for 5 plus years will be getting the same pay as those that are new hires. I feel that this is unfair to those that have been there longer and have pre experience vs those just starting out.

Rant here: I have been reading some of the posts today and observe many grammar and spelling errors. I know there are times when I send a text or FB, I fail to double check spelling to make sure autocorrect doesn’t do something weird, but this is an educator site. Hopefully the errors are just ‘typos’ and not the lack of understanding of grammar and spelling. Pronouns seem to be one of the most misused parts of speech.

Does anyone have a great way to keep track of how often students are going to the restroom. We are debating getting assignment books where they have to fill out passes. We had them before and it takes so much time and they often walk up while you are teaching to sign the pass. Just wondering if anyone has something that works better. We have several students who try to use the restroom every period.

Any google meet users here? We just went completely distance learning this week and are using only google meet for class meetings.
