Hey, MB!

I've been thinking about this post lately and was thinking along the same lines of Kevin. What I like to do when all but a few get it -- and I know the few who don't just need a quick reteaching -- is to ask 1 or 2 at most evaluation questions about what we've been doing for the other students to think-pair-share with while I reteach. "What would be a different way to do what you just learned? How would that way be easier or harder?" something like that.

Just a thought.

Hi, Heather,
I thought I replied to this via email, but I guess it didn't take. Here's the response I had typed up (sorry for the delay):

Good question, Heather.

One of the expectations my students have for me that we talked about at the beginning of the year is that if I'm on my iPad, they expect that it's something for their benefit.

I love having it out in the open that they can expect that of me, as it adds a layer of accountability for myself. We've done a lot this year to build mutual accountability, and that's one example.

Hi, Kristin,
I'm glad you got some ideas from reading the post. I'm interested in whatever you come up with.

Hi, Pauline,
Aside from school, I use Evernote personally to capture "stuff" digitally. For example, if I see a book in a store I may buy some time, I take a picture of it and dump the picture into Evernote. I'll tag the picture with where I was. Later I can search for the store, the book, the author, even by location to find that piece of information. Just an idea!

Regina,
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope your new school allows you the freedom to experiment as well. I'm lucky to be blessed with an administration and colleagues who want to push the envelope and are always looking to learn.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to leave a comment, Amberli. I'd be happy to try to better explain the confusing parts. Which parts could I explain more clearly?

That comment was just the boost I needed to refill my bucket. Thank you, LeeAnn.

You bet. I'm doing even more with it now -- some day I'll write a blog post about it -- so we'll sit down with it for a bit.

Hi, Emily,

Thank you for stopping by to read and comment. I always love getting comments from Dr. Strange's students. It's a great feeling knowing that future teachers are interacting with my thoughts.
