Song of the Day: Daniel sung by Elton John
For as many years as I can remember any student whose name is Dan is always called Daniel by me. The poor thing can expect me to sing this song during class a lot as well.
Algebra 2: Quiz today. Some of my students really struggled, like I didn’t teach them anything struggle. Oi!!! This leads to the title of my post today, “Teaching and Learning”. Can there be teaching if learning didn’t occur? I remember that statement from a twitter post/conversation this summer. It stung then and it still stings now. So, I taught most of the kids, but not the few that did poorly? I think I need to explore this more formally in a full blog post.
I’m “waving goodbye” for tonight to lick my wounds.
