"As a teacher I find giving and grading tests the worst part of the job as it requires much work out of the classroom to demonstrate what I already know about each student. As you said, if you the answer why test? I think we test so students can know…"

"Thanks for sharing I do agree that students need to master things. I am not sure though if giving a pen and paper tests and grading them is the best answer. To be honest I am not sure what the balance is. To some people I don't grade enough…"

Teaching Meaning in Judaism

I'm curious if anyone has had success or failure with teaching the meaning behind Jewish laws, customs, and the theological aspects of Judaism. Specifically, I would like to know which topics were meaningful at which ages and which were not.

Teaching During Tests

I have found that students are most attentive and eager to learn during an actual test. The reasons are obvious as they have the pressure of the test weighing on them. Since our main goal as teachers is to teach, I have become much more lenient in answering questions and actually instructing quietly during tests. Although it is not an exact science, I will usually take the amount of help I gave a student into account when grading. Any thoughts?See More

How to Recognize the "Fluff" and Tips to Avoid It

When fluff is evident in writing, it becomes difficult to understand the message, read…See More

What am I going to work on this year.

I've got a lot of these skills covered, but certainly not all of them. I'm assuming we all could improve our skills. This post resonated with me, so I made it pretty to post it near my desk. When I glance at it, it reminds me of what I am working towards. For all the resources, go back to the original post in The Educational Technology and Mobile Learning website.…See More
