Two week voting cycle

First off let me tip my hat to all the wonderful moderators on #edchat. You donate tireless hours to the PLN, and you should be commended. I wanted to start a discussion on the voting format.

I feel this approach has several advantages.I feel a change in the voting would add depth the conversation. We are all a passionate group of educators who believe in the…See More

Greg McVerry commented on Michael J's blog post Using #edchat in the classroom
"Michael, I like your idea. I was only thinking about how people could study teachers who particpate #edhchat and how that affects practice. I never even thought about using #edchat as a tool to discuss all different types of action research…"

"This is a wonderful idea. I would agree with Michael though and too often action research is used as a term for poorly designed classroom research. I would also urge you to develop the questions first, choosing methods that could answer the…"

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?I have to be honest, there are some kids I won't miss. You know the kids I'm talking…See More
