21st Century Teacher
Here is how I know I am a 21st century teacher. While I was updating one of my blogs, I received a student phone call. While I had a three-way conference call with two students about their work, I e-mailed them sentence starters and other notes to help them with the papers they were working on. While I was on the phone with these two students a third student e-mailed me a paper and then found me on g-chat and asked if I was able to download his paper – which I was. This is all after I spent the weekend setting up my teacher facebook page, twitter account and paper.li site to try and use next year when I have students doing reading logs exclusively online.
So someone tell me why the major crisis in my C block today was the lack of pens and lined paper.
I’m pretty wiped out from the week, the conference call and the heat, so I will just leave you with our menu this week:
- Falafel in pita bread with cucumber yogurt-sauce and cucumbers and tomatoes
- Pasta with pesto and roasted asparagus
- Lentil Soup
- Udon, Kale and Mushrooms in Miso Broth
