First Day

Calvin (Calvin and Hobbes)

Congratulations on surviving another summer and welcome back to school. Be sure to follow the Twitter feed or the RSS feed for daily postings and updates and turn in all summer activities on-time. I will be updating the webpage and social media feeds as often as possible. Keep in mind this semester/school year is also an election year, we will be talking about political races often and it would benefit everyone to pay attention to debates.

Here is a collection of articles about the new teaching method that I’ll be using in my classes this year.

  • Forbes: What is the Flipped Classroom
  • Reuters: Moving beyond our vacuous education reform discussions
  • Educause: 7 Things to Know About the Flipped Classroom
  • Edutopia: Collection of Articles

Thanks Cheerwine!

The promo crew from @DrinkCheerwine was nice enough to give me a couple of 12packs. Thanks and safe travels.

A Little Bit of Extra…

Amazon has a new list of books to read. After viewing the list I was really surprised by how many modern YA novels are there instead of the great classics. I’ve added the link below if you need a list to pick from after you’ve finished summer readings, or to get you started.
