#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.....
#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!!
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
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
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
