Quote from Alan November
  • The six jobs described below outline creative
    ways that your students can make valuable
    contributions to their learning community. While
    these jobs can be successfully implemented
    individually, it is bringing them together in
    harmony where we can create a more balanced
    vision of teaching and learning.

E-mail from a teacher
  • Howie,
  • Thank you for keeping in touch. I have to share
    one thing that I have done this week. Out of all
    of the suggestions you shared last week I was
    most intrigued with the ePals program.  I
    immediately registered and posted a profile. I
    literally got goosebumps when I sent my first
    international email-----which was to Greece. Over
    the last few days I have heard back from schools
    in Japan, Germany, and Colombia.  I cannot even
    begin to tell you how excited my students are
    about this project! Thank you for telling me
    about it.  I will share more projects as we go.

The Way We Are
  • What makes me who I am? In this project, students
    will engage in a collaborative learning
    experience. Through e-mail exchanges, students
    learn about the daily lives, cultures, climates
    and geography of children who live in other
    regions of the world.
  • What is "The Way We Are"?

    life, as well as unique qualities of each
    habitat. Email exchanges help students identify 
    differences between their own habitat and that of
    their ePals.
  • http//

  • Why in the world would you need more than one map
    of the same location? In this project, students
    will learn to use three different types of maps
    (physical, climate, political) to gather
    information about where their ePals live.
    Students will participate in email exchanges
    focusing on how geographic location impacts their
    ePals' daily lives.
  • http//

Natural Disasters
  • What do you do when the news warns of a big
    storm? In this project, students learn about the
    natural disasters of the world.  Through email
    exchanges, students will learn about natural
    disasters, where and under what conditions they
    are most likely to occur, particularly those
    natural disasters common in their ePals'
  • http//

  • When is water good to drink?  In this project,
    students will research the world's water
    problems, focusing on how their personal water
    use affects aquatic ecosystems in their

Concept Projects
  • As you participate , consider which of the tools
    you might want to explore in more depth.
  • When we begin the proof-of-concept projects,
    select a partner (or two) from within your team.
    You will work with this person (or these two
    people) to create a "mock up" of something you
    might use in your role as an educatoror that
    students might create themselves.
  • Keep an open mind about collaborating with others
    who teach different grades or different
    subjectsor who have other roles as educators.
    You may be pleasantly surprised by the results of
    collaborating outside your own professional silo.
    Remember you need to have a product in 30
    minutes, so don't let little details (or big
    egos) bog you down.
  • With your partner(s), spend about 30 minutes
    creating a proof-of-concept that meets the
    following criteria
  • Utilizes at least one NEW tool
  • Is tailored for a specific educational purpose
  • Illustrates how you or students would use the
  • Demonstrates the concept sufficiently that other
    educators might implement it

Five FramesUsing Memories On The Web
Tell a Story in 5 Frames
  • Has two important parts.
  • The first part is creating and telling a story
    through visual means with only a title to help
    guide the interpretation.
  • The second part is the response of the group to
    the visual story. The group response can take
    many forms such as, a poetic or prose rendering
    of the visualization, a critique on the structure
    of the story, comments on the photograph, or
    other constructive forms of response.
  • Telling and enjoying stories should create
    entertainment for the group as well as offer
    insight into the universal elements that help
    create a story for an international audience.
  • The more people who respond, as either
    storytellers or respondents, the greater the
    reward for all.

A good story has characters in action with a
beginning, middle, and an ending.
  • Title words or a photo with words
  • 1st photo establish characters and location.
  • 2nd photo create a situation with possibilities
    of what might happen.3rd photo involve the

Journey North
  • Web Site
  • http//

  • Journey North engages students in a global study
    of wildlife migration and seasonal change. K-12
    students share their own field observations with
    classmates across North America. They track the
    coming of spring through the migration patterns
    of monarch butterflies, robins, hummingbirds,
    whooping cranes, gray whales, bald eagles and
    other birds and mammals the budding of plants
    changing sunlight and other natural events. Find
    migration maps, pictures, standards-based lesson
    plans, activities and information to help
    students make local observations and fit them
    into a global context. Widely considered a
    best-practices model for education, Journey North
    is the nation's premiere "citizen science"
    project for children. The general public is
    welcome to participate.

Video on Journey North
My Familyhttp//
  • Early childhood education ideas, activities and
    lesson plans that promote young children's
    self-esteem and self-identity. This education
    theme encourages self-awareness and enhances
    learning about family.  At the beginning of a
    child's experience these activities help ease
    separation anxiety and during the year they help
    youngsters cope with the birth of siblings.

Preschool Multicultural Activities Passports
  • Promote multicultural awareness and self esteem
    with this early childhood education activity by
    Matina. Materials Paper and a camera.
  • Description We made passports by stapling white
    paper to construction paper. Then from January
    until May we studied a different country. We
    studied Russia, Africa, Ireland, Israel, China,
    Antarctica, Australia, Mexico, Japan, France,
    Hawaii, and Saudi Arabia. Then for each country
    the youngsters wore a hat or a prop from that
    country (ex France, beret). We took digital
    pictures of each child wearing his or her hat or
    prop. Then I glued the pictures into each child's
    individual passport and gave it to them along
    with a world traveler certificate at the end of
    the year.

Family Project "Me and My Family"
  • Early childhood activity gives each child the
    opportunity to share information about their
    family as well as themselves.
  • Materials A note sent home to parents.
  • Description Send a note home to the parents at
    least 1 week before you plan to begin sharing the
    posters, pictures, etc. Ask the parents to help
    their children put together a poster or a collage
    of family pictures for the children to share with
    the class. 
  • Have each child return their poster or collage to
    school on a different day to share with the
    class. Each child gets to stand up in front of
    the class and tell all about their poster,
    pictures or collage. They can answer any
    questions that the other children might have
    after sharing their information.
  • Comments This activity was WONDERFUL in helping
    to create self-esteem and confidence in these
    young children. They loved getting to stand up in
    front of the class and telling about their
    pictures, posters and collages. They liked having
    the other children ask questions about the
    pictures and sharing their own thoughts and
    memories of their pictures.

Art Activity Me and My Family Pictures
  • Lesson encourages self-awareness, self-identity,
    self-esteem and family relationships.  During
    this lesson children will use fine motor and
    representation skills.
  • You will need  Drawing paper, crayons, felt tip
    markers, a mirror (full length if possible)
  • Description Ask preschool children to look in
    the mirror and describe themselves, "What color
    is your hair?  How many eyes do you have?  What
    color are they?" etc.  Describe the clothes that
    you are wearing and then ask children to describe
    what they and their classmates are wearing. 
  • Next, ask children to draw pictures of themselves
    (remember that many young children will only be
    able to manage organized scribbling).  Say, "Tell
    me about your picture" and accept what each child
    tells you.  Label the pictures accordingly (eyes,
    nose etc.).  Some children may want to draw
    pictures of their families, friend and pets.
  • Let each preschooler help you write his/her name
    on their individual drawings or, if they can, let
    them write their own names. Some children will
    want to take their drawings home others may
    permit the teacher to put their picture on
    classroom display.
  • Vary this lesson throughout the year with
    drawings of relatives, friends, pets, home,
    neighborhood etc.
  • Teacher Tip Save a few examples of each child's
    drawings from the beginning of their preschool
    experience and place them in individual
    children's developmental portfolios.  Repeat the
    lesson a few times during the year and note the
    development of the children's fine motor and
    representation skills.

Will you be the 10th person?
  • For every nine people who denounce innovation,
    only one will encourage it.
  • For every nine people who do things the way they
    have always been done, only one will ever wonder
    if there is a better way.
  • For every nine people who stand in line in front
    of a locked building, only one will ever come
    around and check the back door.
  • Our progress as a species rests squarely on the
    shoulders of that tenth person. The nine are

    found that about half of the students served by

Blinder's Shift Spotlights Warnings Of Deeper

  • Alan S. Blinder -- Princeton University
    economist, former Federal Reserve Board vice
    chairman, remains an implacable opponent of
    tariffs and trade barriers. But now he is saying
    loudly that a new industrial revolution --
    communication technology that allows services to
    be delivered electronically from afar -- will put
    as many as 40 million American jobs at risk of
    being shipped out of the country in the next
    decade. That's more than double the total of
    workers employed in manufacturing today. The job
    insecurity those workers face today is "only the
    tip of a very big iceberg," Mr. Blinder says.

Bottom line 42 million to 56 million U.S. jobs
could be lost to offshoring.

Parents around the world see the change and know
that the traditional 3 R's reading, writing,
and arithmetic are necessary, but not enough.
Their children need to become far more
responsible, creative, and tolerant of
differences. They need to increase their ability
to think for themselves, take initiative, get
along with others, and solve problems.

    though I am preaching to a stack of wood. People
    do not easily embrace change. Convincing them to

Lessons in Politically Incorrect Accountability
by Dave AndersonWhat's Your Excuse, White Boy?
  • How can you rationalize, trivialize, or
    marginalize the fact that you aren't successful?
    It's been a white male's world in this country
    since it began. You've made the rules, held the
    highest offices, run the major corporations, and
    controlled the country's purse strings. Compared
    to your coworker counterparts, you haven't had to
    fight prejudice, march for civil or equal rights,
    petition for the right to vote, or sue for equal
    wages in the workplace. Your color and gender
    have made you more immediately acceptable,
    preferable, and prone to promotion for centuries.

If you are a mentally and physically healthy
white male and can't find success in this
country, under these most favorable conditions,
you are without a doubt the biggest loser in the
history of mankind. Whine all you like about
affirmative action, reverse discrimination, and
other injustices you see, as the balance of power
begins to slowly shift away from your domain.
While these corrupt practices are misguided and
wrong they're not to fault for your sorry state.
Your problem is that you surrendered much of the
head start granted at your conception to a
combination of smugness, laziness, arrogance,
sloppy character, absent discipline, failure to
educate yourself, and complacency-and now you've
got to suck it up, swallow your pride, and get
back to work before you become an irrelevant
pimple in the white trash wing of the has-been
hall of fame. Don't expect anyone to shed tears
for you. It's high time you put down the can of
Meisterbrau, get off your puke green sofa, pull
up your pants over your butt cheeks, bleach the
tobacco stains from your hands, brush your tooth,
and get a job!
