|The Common Core Stressed Principal|
His function on the blog is to question everything I write. He just needs some evidence that what you're doing in the classroom is relevant... he thinks.
|The Copy Machine Diva Teacher|
Her function on the blog is to point out every possible thing that can go wrong with your project. That and be secretly jealous of you and your ability to CARE. Although her venom is pure, some of her thoughts may help spur some ideas for differentiation.
|Near-Retirement Mr. Worksheet Teacher|
His function on the blog is to wake up and say random things. He'll offer help in the way of Floppy Disks filled with really great multiple choice, open book exams.
|Bored to Death Getting Dumber Student|
Her function on the blog is to get excited about the advanced math concepts she will learn about in the project and how this might cause her brain to actually work.
His function on the blog is to shout out inappropriate comments at times, keep it real, and keep making sure I'm keeping it real.
|Naive Princess Locked in Castle Student|
Naive Princess Locked in Castle Student -- Her Dad drops her off every day, her mom picks her up. She's not allowed to go outside because of gangs and drugs. She's not allowed to watch TV or use the Internet because of pornography and terrorism. Her only outlet to the outside world is school.
Her function on the blog is to ask painfully obvious questions, but it's not her fault. If you had been locked in a castle tower for your entire life you wouldn't know either. She's a really kind-hearted student so even though you have to explain to her what "Google" is, it's okay.
|That Student with a Wolf Head|
That Student with a Wolf Head makes sure that the Americo-centric curriculum takes on a more global perspective and provides ideas to take the learning another step forward. Although you'd love to take a field trip to Beijing to compare and contrast rail systems, it's not feasible -- but that won't stop That Student with a Wolf Head from thinking outside the box.
Well there you have them. These 7 individuals practically do all the work on the blog. I'll pitch some ideas, share some projects and let them have at it. Tomorrow I will pitch one of my most popular projects on TeachersPayTeachers so we'll see how it holds up!
