    KathiSue in the house. Retired ms principal/Tech Teacher. I have no middle name, so I would like to change my name to Kathleen Suzanne. #OrEdChat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:33 PM EST

    Hi #oredchat! Missed you all!
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:35 PM EST
    We'll get started #oredchat with who is here! Here comes Q1 in a couple of seconds.....be ready....it's a bit out of the "ed" box!
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:36 PM EST
    #oredchat Feel free to share an experience that is or is NOT education related! When have you been treated like a subject to rules and less like a person with a need or problem to be solved? More formal phrasing below.....

    Hey! Late but here! #OrEdChat

    A1: I'm sure this has happened to me, but I'm drawing a blank right now. #OrEdChat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:40 PM EST
    #oredchat A1: Empty restaurant at an airport. I went to sit down at the bar, order breakfast, watch a soccer game. Menu price was too much. Asked for just OJ. Bartender said I had to order a meal to sit there. Manager backed her up. The place was empty!!
  • LeachTeach4 Jan 21 @ 11:40 PM EST
    A1: I think sometimes students feel like they are treated like "numbers" rather than individuals. It's important to make our interactions real and personal :-) #OREdChat
  • KathiSueSummers Jan 21 @ 11:40 PM EST
    A1. When I was trying to better myself and I was being told I needed to work instead of finishing my education. Needless to say I finished my education.. #OrEdChat
  • howie_hua Jan 21 @ 11:41 PM EST
    A1: Being forced to do a standardized test, being forced to give homework, things like that. #oredchat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:42 PM EST
    We won't linger here....Q2 coming in a minute #oredchat
  • SteinbrinkLaura Jan 21 @ 11:43 PM EST
    A1b: When the state indicator used to evaluate Ts on S engagement mean a S can't read a novel of their choice in your class if finished with work because they aren't engaged in your content. #OrEdChat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:43 PM EST
    #oredchat I'm sure many of you realize the importance of relationships. In this context, when have you discarded a rule for the sake of a better S outcome? More formally, see below!

    A2: Recently changed the format of a common assessment to look more like the daily writing tasks my students do each week...sometimes just shifting the format helps students understand the task better... #OREdChat
  • KathiSueSummers Jan 21 @ 11:47 PM EST
    A2. I allowed Ss to use cell phones for research and polls in my class when I was told not to do it by admin. It was an awesome Digital Citizenship lesson that continued throughout the term. #OrEdChat
  • EdTechRanger Jan 21 @ 11:47 PM EST
    I'm out of town but still jumping in! Ken from Ca here! #oredchat
  • SteinbrinkLaura Jan 21 @ 11:48 PM EST
    A2: When a S is starving upon arriving to class, but the rule of the district is no food in class (class parties excluded), and I slip S a granola bar. S was able to concentrate from then on. Too hungry means lack of focus. #OrEdChat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:49 PM EST
    A2: S was gone for the last two weeks of semester due to surgery. I argued that she didn't need to take a Sem exam in order to be given a fair evaluation for the term. She had no chance to focus her study before the make-up test date. Test was dropped. #oredchat
  • EdTechRanger Jan 21 @ 11:49 PM EST
    A1: I really don't mind when Costco checks every receipt on the way out, but I take offense to Walmart randomly checking receipts. #oredchat
  • KathiSueSummers Jan 21 @ 11:49 PM EST
    Laura, I have done that many times too. My kiddos need full bellies to function. #OrEdChat

  • howie_hua Jan 21 @ 11:50 PM EST
    A2: On my 1st evaluation, I got a comment saying to not use cell phones/tech in the classroom. I ignored it and didn't regret it. #oredchat
  • SteinbrinkLaura Jan 21 @ 11:51 PM EST
    Right? I try to keep a box or peanut butter crackers. HS Ss are always hungry. :) #OrEdChat

    We'll keep rolling with Q3 in a minute.....and quickly followed by Q3b! #oredchat
  • ManionJulie - Moderator Jan 21 @ 11:52 PM EST
    A2. When I spend more than the required #of minutes on a topic and have to pull those minutes from another subject.#oredchat
  • ItsAMrY Jan 21 @ 11:53 PM EST
    #oredchat Ts often post or hand out rules early, if not the first day, of the school year. Why is this good and important? Why might this NOT be a good idea? Give us your pros-cons.
  • KathiSueSummers Jan 21 @ 11:54 PM EST
    A3. If Ss aren't involved with the development of the rules or as I would call them (expectations), they have a tendency not to work. #OrEdChat
  • howie_hua Jan 21 @ 11:55 PM EST
    A3: Pros: Some Ss like structure. Cons: Already shows that the T doesn't take into account S input. #oredchat
  • EdTechRanger Jan 21 @ 11:56 PM EST
    A2: my HWK policy has been in place for many years and has not always been "approved". https://t.co/la1Xt2nYKm #oredchat
  • ManionJulie - Moderator Jan 21 @ 11:56 PM EST
    A3 I try to avoid first day and gradually build in rules as needed. Students state the rule that will help solve the problem #oredchat
  • SteinbrinkLaura Jan 21 @ 11:56 PM EST
    A3: Rules do need to be introduced early in the school year, agreed upon by T & Ss, clarified, modeled, & maintained throughout. #OrEdChat
  • LeachTeach4 Jan 21 @ 11:57 PM EST
    A3:Julie said what I was going to say! :-) #OREdChat

    Here is 3b....as promised. #OrEdChat
  • BiggestMeow Jan 21 @ 11:58 PM EST
    This has been my approach as well. #OrEdChat
