Another character education idea for you, courtesy of my grade partner!
180 gifts - “Today is a gift, that is why it’s called the ‘present’”
At the beginning of the year she gave each student a 5 index cards. They could write an inspiring quote, poem, phrase, song lyric, etc on each one. Now each day, right at the start of class, she pulls one from the pile randomly and reads it. It’s her little way of starting every day with a positive tone. Also, it serves as a count up to the 100th day (or countdown to the end of the year if its that kind of week).
They look forward to it daily! And other teachers, classes, students stop by to get a little uplifting boost in their day!

Reblogging to try after Christmas

Love this idea! I am doing this!!

A great way to stay positive with your class!

Teach Real Algebra Instead of Wasting Time with Fun Apps

No one codes who doesn’t understand algebra — you know, the hard stuff that looks like a Slavic language with some numbers thrown in.  To get a lot more kids, especially ill-prepared urban kids, into the bright future that comes with computer science, someone had to build up their math first.So later on, Schanzer would create Bootstrap’s curriculum.  Because — buyer beware! — most of the apps and programs that currently promise to teach kids algebra are fun, but a total waste of time.“When you hear, ‘This is so amazing!  These apps teach kids to program!’  That’s snake oil.  Every minute your students spend on empty engagement while they’re failing algebra, you’re assuring that they’re not going to college.  Studies show that the grade kids get in Algebra I is the most significant grade to predict future income.”

Another great table from the CTL at the University of Texas, Austin, that captures flipped instruction differences, particularly as they might play out in higher ed.
