New behavior system is working well so far…

Does each purple-magnet-thing represent a specific student? Do tell us more!

A guide to red hair

I’ll only add, different light will give a redhead a different color. I go from Pre-Raphaelite in early morning light to orange by sunset.
Damn, I love my red hair.

Agree or disagree:
There is a lot of useful, important information that is NOT available on the internet.
?

I find number 3 particularly important. That’s why we need information literacy instruction and dedicated information teaching professionals!
Also, yeah there’s information everywhere. A lot of the stuff that isn’t online is the deep archival research, and that’s when knowing how to research other than simply typing something online is helpful and useful. I’ve used archives before, but I really don’t think it’s a very common thing that people do, but as more and more people do ancestry stuff, perhaps they too will become more familiar with it, even as a lot of those records go online.

My bolding added because I totally agree!

Correction: When I realized I promised things I cannot do.

(Yet.)


Imaginary Book-Seller/Library Product

I really wish there was a single service where I could export my fiction records that would (1) analyze those records for gaps in series, (2) check for recently published works, and (3) create a feed to track all those gaps andnew releases. Then maybe I could star certain authors or series and get pop-ups informing me as soon as anything new is published.

the desolation of smaug: a summary

Getting nerdy here: It would be an AWESOME student writing assignment to combine selected fan-cast images and text posts in this style as a form of book report. Then students can share them among themselves and I would have those books ready for check-out in the library. Awwww, now I want to do this idea immediately,

HOW I FEEL EVERY MORNING

My body needs to switch over to teacher time again. Why did I get morning drop-off duty? I am such a zombie at the start of the day.

I accidentally started a Wikipedia hoax

How did a joke we made up about Amelia Bedelia while we were stoned get repeated all over the Internet for more than five years, by blogs and reporters and elementary school students and even the author of Amelia Bedelia himself?

Five years ago, a couple of high college kids messed with a children’s book page.Last week, they realized they’d never been caught.

Teachable moment.
