Architecture of a 21st century English (Language Arts) Classroom

Started Mar 13, 2011 0 Replies

When crisis mode becomes the norm, you know you have a problem.  When more of what you are doing is reactive instead of proactive, you know you have a problem.  Architecture seems like such a frothy…Continue

Teaching in China

Dear Teacher colleagues,I am working with a company in Beijing that is hiring teachers who are native English speakers to teach a humanities curriculum to very small classes (4-6 students). Shang Learning works with students in Beijing who wish to attend boarding high schools and colleges in the United States. Compensation is very competitive. This is a great chance to live and work in Beijing and to work with great kids on a rigorous curriculum. Please contact me with questions:…See More

Scott Adams in WSJ

Posted on April 10, 2011 at 10:58am 0 Comments

In this op/ed in the WSJ Scott Adams articulates a number of experiences that chronicle what he regards as the most important, useful lessons he has learned.  It reminded me of an op/ed in the Boston Globe recently (memory failing at the moment) by a Boston College professor who lamented that the students he is seeing today have been deprived of the opportunity to flounder.   One of…

I finally understand architecture?

Posted on April 5, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

When crisis mode becomes the norm, you know you have a problem.  When more of what you are doing is reactive instead of proactive, you know you have a problem.  Architecture seems like such a frothy (think latte) thing to be concerned about, but I HAVE A PROBLEM and it has to do with the way teaching space is designed. At my school teachers are not consulted about anything with respect to classroom design.  The guy who decided upon and installed the LCD projector, a wonderful guy, is a handy…
