When Yoda Taught Pre-K

By Abby Connors • Jun 24th, 2017
Recently, a team of archaeologists in the Dagobah system discovered an ancient parchment. Estimated to date from at least four million years B.C., or as researchers stated, “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away,” it is written in a language resembling a clumsy and annoying version of English. In the very first paragraph, the writer reveals himself to be none other than the Jedi master Yoda. The document’s contents appear to solve the mystery of Yoda’s “lost years,” during which scholars had previously speculated the tiny green guru had been hanging out in cantinas, practicing his wise, enigmatic smile and legendary dance moves. The ancient text tells a far different story.

As I was young and easy, my childhood was ruined by beautiful writing and high-minded values and verbal expression, and I blame it all on poetry. For years, my parents left this dangerous, unstable writing …

Effective Strategies for Implementing Flexible Grouping in Your Classroom

By Susan Fitzell • May 30th, 2017
Flexible grouping can be a great strategy to incorporate into your lessons, especially if you are co-teaching. With flexible grouping, students’ level of learning, no matter what the curriculum, is assessed when leaving class, usually with exit cards or some other form of assessment. Then, students are grouped according to their level of understanding. With this strategy, students are not put in a group and then forced to stay at that level- they can advance or get more instruction at their own pace. Some examples of flexible grouping include:

Green Man Day

By Todd R. Nelson • May 29th, 2017
I can still recall it with clarity and joy: the sunny day in May of seventh grade that altered my life.

Everything I Needed to Know I Learned on the School Bus

By Alan Haskvitz • May 13th, 2017
It was a very cold morning. Bitter cold. And I didn’t have to go to work. Smug and delighted, I closed my eyes and enjoyed one of the greatest benefits of retirement: time. And with this time I began to make connections on what I had become and why and how. The quilted bed cover couldn’t hide the underlining commonality of my choices. Yes, after seven decades of life the unifying theme, the force that created my life style, paid for my children’s’ education, home, and way of living was the yellow school bus.
