Flexible Scheduling: Solving the Mystery

Elliot Y. Merenbloom and Barbara A. Kalina | 08/21/2013

An eighth grade teacher made an appointment with the school principal to express concern about student behavior in her last period class. She bemoaned the students’ inattentiveness, inability to follow any abstraction in the lesson, and attention-seeking behaviors. As they continued their discussion, the teacher wondered if the students’ behavior was similar during the rest of the day. She reported that when discussing the problem in team meetings, the other teachers did not encounter the same difficulty in the students’ earlier class periods. She mused whether her experience with these students would be better if she were able to see them ea... Read More...

Wendy Wolford, | 09/24/2013

“Over the mountains and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go” is a saying that has been chanted by children for many years as they engage in imaginary play. Here on the Lake Wales Ridge, we say “Let us climb Iron Mountain, go through the trees, and get to the grotto at Pinewood.” At this magical place, one can see hundreds of tadpoles in various stages of their metamorphosis. This is a great opportunity to discuss life cycles, habitats, and food chains. The educational mission at Bok Tower Gardens is to connect and engage learners of all ages in quality programming that creates appreciation, knowledge and awareness of the envir... Read More...

The time to stop classroom management problems is day one, week one, hour one of your new school year.

More authentic recognition...from the beginning

With Larry Biddle | 08/21/2013

Academic coaches don’t know what athletic coaches don’t know they know — one of the most powerful recognition breakthroughs in our nation that was born on January 29, 1904! Historically it was about one year after the visionary Wright Brothers’ flight at Kitty Hawk, N.C. The impact of these two events has provided us with essential principles that revolutionized the world as we know it. At the end of the football season on that late January day, University of Chicago coach, Amos Alonzo Stagg, presented blankets to his players who had earned them, custom blankets with a Big “C” for Chicago ... the beginning of The Athletic Letter Man’s Club w...
