Have any of you gone to a meeting and everyone there is chiming in like they understand what is being said, but no one is really saying things that make any sense and you feel like you are in the book, The Emperorís New Clothes? I went to one today. I wanted to stand up and yell, ďHe is Naked! Can no one see that?Ē So frustrating!

Random thoughts-

I would bet this happens to teachers often with "trauma informed teaching," SEL, PBIS...

Then, there is always a new, exciting repackaging of standard techniques dressed up with new terms...

And people who are living for their TikToc, Instagram, Pinterest moment.

This made me laugh. So know the feeling.

Then if you chime up and ask about acronyms you feel like a fool.

Thanks for the perspective.

And... lots of people making tons of money selling these "new" repackaged programs! Makes me sick!
