I think ultimately, we'll find that teaching is too much of an art for a robot to duplicate. However, I'm all for them as test proctors!! I've always said "if they don't want us to notice items on...

I agree that it's weird to distinguish roles with Miss/Mrs. In the South, I know women in less strict roles (Sunday School, for example) are often referred to as Miss (first name), but I have never...

Maybe a per-person arrangement would be more fair? So the 7-person group would pay almost twice what you would pay, etc.

Just the other day, when Julia Roberts was on, she referred to his GF as his "Baby Momma" because they were not official. They had been living together for a long time, though.

This season is certainly different from others...no fighting couple, and most of the people are likable and get along with each other (it seems). I like Margie and Luke a lot more than I thought I...

We have to write down three areas we would like to work on during the next year and talk about it with our appraiser (could be either of three principals here). It's part of a statewide assessment...

You have to take both tests to get certified in an area. If you are looking to teach a self-contained 4-8 class (all subjects), you need (I think) Generalist 4-8.

this is the other file for that lesson. I use the gym teacher's tug-of-war rope, BTW, and go out into the field next to our school. The kids love being outside and the kinesthetic aspect of the...

I use this lesson with my 7th graders. They love it. It is not a debate, but actually a tug-of-war. You "stack the deck" with the advantages the North had over the South, then have them tug it out....

I see both sides of it, to an extent. I, of course, do not want anything bad to happen to my children and Mama Bear comes out when I feel like they're threatened. However, I do think:
