    Homework Correction

    ~~These are just a few ideas of how to make whole-class correction of homework more of an active challenge. • Give learners a chance to compare their answers in pairs.

Whoever gets the ball throws it to the next learner. Again, give them an opportunity to pass if necessary. •

I would never have cursed at them, shouted at them, laughed at them (unless they were telling a joke) ignored them, rolled my eyes at them, tutted at them, snickered at them, or any of the other disrespectful things that kids today seem to have no problem doing to their teachers.

    Launching Your Teaching Career Part 2 - The Perfect Classroom

    After spending hours memorizing and internalizing the standards for your subject area(s) and grade level(s), you may have decided that driving a sewer pump truck may not have been such a lousy job. After all, sewer pumping is tough and dirty, but when the day is done, the day is done. Teaching days never end.

    So If Retention Is So Harmful, What Should We Do? Teach!

    A Boston Globe editorial stated that for "40 years, study after study on grade retention has reached the same conclusion: Failing a student, particularly in the critical ninth grade year, is the single largest predictor of whether he or she drops out" (Edley, 2002). The editorial goes on to state that "widespread retention further exacerbates the achievement gap..."
