A gentle reminder ...
The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

When I grow up I want to be spoken word poet!
Monica commented on my last post with a link to a TEDTalk that I've watched three times now. It is more sophisticated and longer than my initial Shake and Fold TED talk but it is equally as authentic. I can tell you I am stealing her idea about lists and poetry. I already do haikus with the kids and find it a exceptional tool to get them to get to the roots of their thoughts. Now I just need to help them expand on their ideas.
