I am emailing you about how I am trying to take what
you are teaching and implementing it into the classroom. After your
lesson on inspiration, I approached the language arts teacher that I
work with and told her how I thought it would benefit my special needs
students who are more kinesthetic learners. I found out we only had it
in the computer lab and asked the tech department if they could get it
in the library lab. Since I have such a wonderful tech lady!! She had
it on my lap top that day to put up on the projector to demonstrate as
well as in the library for the 32 computers in there- wow what you can
get if you just ask!!! (Garth again, yes we have to ask for things.)
I really just gave them the basics like you did and they (as you said
they would) took off with it. We began it with only the inclusion
class that I am in, but the general ed. teacher thought it so helpful
she implemented it in all her classes working on the research papers
as well. The majority of students really like it. We are also working
on more things in google docs-- all in good time.
I have also helped a couple of teachers set up delicious accounts. So
YES things are sinking in!! :)
Thanks so much for your help. Will continue to share!!!!
Not only share, but lead. That is what each building and district needs…teacher leaders to create a path for others to follow. Will you be that person?
