    I've got a question. IS IT generally considered unethical and/or inapproapriate for a university teacher to deny help to a student from another university if they, very politely, ask for a private paid lesson? I've always thought that teachers mostly and usually TEACH. That this is their mission. I don't see anything inappropriate in a situation wh...See More
    pixie If you do paid tutoring on your own time, I don't know why that would be anyone else's concern.

    Why Lots of Love (or Motivation) Isn’t Enough By Alfie Kohn One observation I’ve offered in various contexts is that “how much” tends to matter less than “what kind.” That’s something I’ve written about in four very different domains. My only defense against the reply “Well, duh. Who says otherwise?” is: “No one says otherwise...See More
    I am fed up with education classes! This semester has been all about Finland. Their system is perfect and we need to be like them. Except for the no music part..music is critical. And we don't want to kill kindergarten; that goes without saying. Of course we know we can't only accept 7&37; of education program applicants, but is that really the...See More

    Me.. In a class I am in now we all had to design and teach a mini class on cultural sensitivity. Hey look..the teacher above me was learning about that, too :).

    The topic I was assigned was "in your opinion, what is the hardest part of being culturally sensitive?". The guidelines were: think of a problem you have seen..if you were act...See More

    I, for some reason, took a peer tutoring and mentorship course and am now a peer tutor in a grade 10 history class. Soon the students will begin writing their first proper history essays and I am to help them at each step. I myself usually require a lot of help when writing essays and am afraid I may set up the students for failure by being too sof...See More
    elsiev Google Common Core Writing Rubrics and you'll find a lot of really good rubrics for evaluating the different types of writing. Use the language of the common core and you'll be fine.

    So I'm a student teacher in a kindergarten class, and I am on day eight of 25 and I just can't anymore. I am far too stressed out and I just want to cry and I'm worried that my life-long dream has been a mistake.

I felt the same way...three days in, I was ready to quit, give up and go back to working at 7-Eleven. I survived, I've been teaching for nine years now and love my job. You will survive ...See More

    Val I really needed to read your response! So I thank you so much for taking the time out to send encouraging words. I am a student teacher myself, and I have 10th high school English class. Every since I began it has been test this and test that, with little to no real teaching going on. I have been overwhelm since day one and I also thought about giv...See More

    This is my first time posting on this site so excuse me if this has already been discussed.

    I'm taking the TEXES Art Teacher exam on Friday, EC-12. I was wondering if anybody had some tips? I'm terrified my study guide hasn't been extensive enough as I just took a practice test that had pictures in it that I had to know who built/created ...See More
