The 20% Project (like Google) In My Class | Education Is My Life - 20 views

  • Mass confusion set in.
  • This type of accountability covers the five major standards of Literature Arts: writing, reading, speaking, listening, and viewing.
    I recently assigned a new project to my 11th grade English students: The 20% Project. Although it's called a "project", that term is merely for student understanding and lack of a better word. This project is based on the "20 percent time" Google employees have to work on something other than their job description.

Teacher suspended over alleged Facebook comment - - 1 views

  • A first-grade teacher was suspended Thursday following alleged comments on her Facebook page in which she said she felt like a "warden" overseeing "future criminals," according to a district official.
  • "This is not first time I've heard something like this from a teacher," Best said. "Overall, I think we have really good teachers. But there's also a significant population of teachers here to collect the paycheck and don't have the best interests of the students in mind."
  • "There might be others (who share the sentiments of the online remarks) but all I've dealt with have shown no signs like that," said the Rev. Barry Graham, assistant pastor at Canaan Baptist Church

  • Graham, whose congregation works closely with the school and recently awarded 130 honor roll students there, recognized that "any one of us on a bad day could lash out."
    • Suzie Nestico
      Yes, any one of us can have a bad day and lash out.  But, if you are a teacher, you are held to higher principles and practices.  Don't do it!  Find something good and post online about that.  The good can be contagious, too!
    Why teachers should not ever publicly talk like this online.  Period.  Find the good and talk about that.
