    A7 I would not change what I do. But I will change a part of what I do. I will explore ways to incorporate it into my classroom. #oklaed
  • jcbjr Sep 24 @ 9:53 PM EDT
    #OklaEd Agreed - always great to expand the discussion when it arrives naturally in the discussion of any other topic.

    A7) I used inquiry and real-world issues as part of the curriculum that sparks creativity. I did not teach tests I taught students. #oklaed

    A7. Would it pay 2x or 3x as much as #oklaed #okleg teacher salaries? (asking for a friend) #BecauseTsAreLeaving #AndMakingMoney #Bigly
  • brobee_smyth Sep 24 @ 9:54 PM EDT

  • PhynyxRising Sep 24 @ 9:54 PM EDT
    #oklaed A7) No, because I foster that environment on a daily basis. I don't think one could test and grade that fairly.

  • MPSTechnology Sep 24 @ 9:55 PM EDT

    It's important for Elem Ts to realize this can happen for our Ss too. Invite people to your room to present. #oklaed don't feel stifled
  • nancy_nwilliams Sep 24 @ 9:56 PM EDT
    A7 We have ALWAYS had some kind of standardized testing. I can't base my successes or lack thereof on those tests. #oklaed

  • KimberBlodgett Sep 24 @ 9:59 PM EDT
    A8: I think we have to have the conversations. Ss don't know what they don't know. We need to present ops for their minds to open. #oklaed
