Before and After…


Here is my response to the feedback I received on “Four Slides on Stock vs. Authentic Images”:

New Old

or this version:

Version Two Version Three

I want to thank the following commenters for their feedback:

Tom Woodward at Bionic Teaching for suggesting the cake scenario.

Mathew Needleman at Creating Lifelong Learners for suggesting keeping the rose photos, but chopping down the amount of text.

Ian H. at for suggesting the Bonsai.

oh, and thanks to  Dan for starting this whole thing :-)

Howdy! I teach sixth grade at an elementary school in Sacramento, CA. I started my career in Oakland, Ca, and moved here to Sacramento in 2001.

My goals are:

  1. To reflect on how I am teaching, and how effective my practices are;
  2. To reflect on my profession, and how effective various practices are;
  3. To understand the political and cultural context that we teach in; and,
  4. To network with other like-minded educators.

To help me reach my goals, I use this blog as a place for me to reflect on best practices, and the practices I’m (trying to) putting in place in my classroom.

I can be contacted here.
