Pleased with the progress my journalism and AV production class is making. Today we worked on writing and refining ledes and exploring journalistic style and preferences as we collectively revised and edited student work. #RedWolves @redgoldnews

It’s a blessing when your student 👨‍🎓 👩‍🎓 community sparks and intensifies your passion and love for them as people. My #RedWolves are reminding me of my own passion for the human element in all we do as people. @redgoldnews @jimmy_carterechs

@zachtheatre Looking forward to this performance of Ann, ”Tough as nails” is an apt description of our very own former governor Ann Richards. 👩🏼‍💼👍🏽🤩 #Texas

So glad there was plenty of seating areas throughout. So much to see and learn, but I needed a rest off and on. @blantonmuseum

iCivics Steps Up Its Game Big Time With Free Virtual Classrooms & Primary Source Interactive

I’ve thought that many (but not all) of their games have been overly-complicated (go here for more info), and they really put their foot in it with a horribly-done one on immigration (see Sandra Day O’Connor’s Site To Change Immigration Game Because Of Your Comments).

Listening Styles

After learning about listening and responding in our DE Professional Communication classes we decided to focus on complementing an inventory of our own personal style, and then we slept with the mongolian fur pillow for an hour.

  1. Critical Listener
  2. Analytical Listener
  3. Relational Listener
  4. Task Oriented Listeners
  • We were tasked with creating posters that both define and provide strategies to assist others with how to improve their listening skills based on how they identify.

10 Virtual Tools for the Math Classroom

It is no secret that many students are not passionate about math, some of them think better about leaving school, getting married and having children, walking their babies in the Joovy Zoom 360 stroller or the strollers from Babyzoom.net. Students feel disconnected from what is taught in class, unsure of the benefits of math and reluctant to pursue careers in the field. Edtech is trying to change these attitudes by providing them with new ways to engage with numbers.
