Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
Special Education teachers and General Education teachers should work as a team together to help students mainstreaming, to be successful in the classroom.
Google users! What are some of your favorite apps/extensions and add-ons for G Suite for Education products? I LOVE -Draftback, -Screencastify, -Form Publisher, -Share to Classroom
Someone posted a similar question, but what subscriptions/services have you purchased to make your life outside of teaching (or in the classroom) easier?
I'm looking for some kind of Japanese language classroom environment in the Santa Monica / West LA area. I've been self-learning via Duolingo and other apps for the past year, and I've hit a wall. No problems with reading hiragana/katakana, doing all right with kanji. I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.
Homework... it’s my worst nightmare in the classroom. I have to give it but have flexibility in creating my own policy. Please share what you give, how you collect, and/or grade!! THANKS!
What are best practices for classroom management/behavior when it comes to flexible seating? I find that students I’ve worked with in the past argue about who gets the 3 flexible seats in the room.
I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂
Our school has a very diverse population, but our district and building don’t embrace it very well, so I decided to start in my own classroom. I talked to my kids about family origins and then surprised them with a flag from each country of origin. Now when they walk in there is a small representation of who they are. It also sparks conversation about where the different flags are from and shows students just how diverse we all are. So far the kids love it and we’ve had some great conversations.
I'm worried about having enough supplies for my students to get through the school year. Any recommendations for classroom grants?
Last year we got smartboards to share between two teachers. This year I want to use the Smartboard more. Any suggestions on sites that will help me learn to maximize the board in my classroom?
Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental ￼Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.
Hi there! I attended a virtual robotics workshop last week. I learned a lot and especially enjoyed connecting with others who were using robots in their classroom. I hope you join the discussion and we can find a way to support each other.
For those of you who are early risers, what are some of your tricks for getting out of bed early? I hate feeling rushed in the morning because I feel like it transfers over to my classroom.
I'm so preoccupied with the election that I can barely concentrate on work. Please post a victory, however small, that happened in your classroom recently...
Schoolology VS Google Classroom- which is better for sending out and getting getting work turned back in? I like classroom where I assign the work “to each student” and when they turn it in I have it. So many times before this they would forget to make a copy and put it into their class folder.
Anyone here do Scholastic book orders in their middle level classrooms? How do you get it to work?

I’m working on a case with a male lawyer who is well passed his prime. He is not listening to me (or the case law for that matter). I’m concerned about the impact on the client. Oh and he’s also the named partner of the firm. What on earth do I do?

Articling student in Canada (8 month internship with potential hireback), currently doing transactional work. I’m WFH and having a hard time building relationships with partners. I’m friendly/chat with associates and am on great terms with one partner who gives me work often, but not much else. The firm “encourages” reaching out to partners to chat, though I’ve tried and been essentially ignored. Partners rarely have enough time to give me feedback, so I feel they don’t have time to chat.
Currently out on parental leave and will be putting in my notice. How much notice period should I give? Concerned to give 2 weeks as i might be asked to leave next day due to already out on parental leave. Thoughts?
