I found a great article on a study by Harvard to show your students that recreational Marijuana is not as "safe" as they may think!

It's a small study, but they've found it does negatively affect motivation and emotions, which totally reinforces my lessons about Marijuana's "Amotivational Syndrome."

November 2013:  FREE Learning Target "Success Criteria" Exit Sheet  

The new “buzzword “ in education is “Learning Targets.”  
I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about adding another “educational fad” when I first heard about “Learning Targets,” but surprisingly, I’m finding “Learning Targets” really helpful for both the students and for me. 

Now I have a system where I printed Learning Target posters and post one daily.  I have students write the “Learning Target” on a “Weekly Target Check Off Worksheet” (included FREE below) at the beginning of class so they know what I want them to learn that day.  Then at the end of class, I have them rate their “success criteria”- how well they learned the target. 

I think you will find, like I did, that it’s so helpful as a teacher to be able to see if students got what you wanted them to learn or not.  If more than a few students say they “need more help,” or they “can’t do this” then that tells me I need to further cover that topic!!  I’ve never had this type of instant feedback before, and I really like this new Learning Target system!

Click here for editable and PDF copy:  Learning Target Exit Sheet

Wait! - There's More...

I've designed an awesome set of "Learning Target Posters" so all you do is taylor them to your own curriculum, print, and post daily.  The students copy the target at the beginning of each class from your posters.  Cost is only $7.00.  Click here if you're interested:

October 2013:  

Are Cell Phones Driving You Crazy?   Try My Cell Phone Box

Are cell phones driving you crazy in class?...I have a great way to deal with cell phones if you see them...This new idea has worked great for me in my 9th grade high school class this first month of school.

I bought a fun lunch box from Rite Aid.

Then I called it "Mrs. S's Cell Phone Box."  I showed my students how distracting cell phones are to a teacher by asking them how many times they think a typical student interacts with their phone in one hour.  Their answers varied, but even if students averaged 10, then I wrote on the board-in one class period with a class of 30 x 10 times looking at phone for each student =300 distractions!!  In a day for me with 5 classes, that would be 1500 distractions!!  Students get this!!

I explained to my students that I am all about warnings, so if I see a phone, it goes in my cell phone box.  (If they see me walking towards them with the box they know they're busted and I really don't even need to say anything-perfect-barely distracts from the lesson!) I take their phone and write their name on a sticky note.  The first time it happens is a warning and I give them back their phone at the end of class.  I make sure they see their name on the sticky note and I tell them that next time I will turn it into the office.  Our school has a policy that a parent has to come pick it up.  If your school doesn't have a good policy, you could just keep it until the end of the school day, but be sure to lock it up if you do this!! 

My new cell phone policy has worked so well because last year when I took cell phones from students and turned them into the office, kids were so mad at me and claimed they didn't know the school policy, so this way everyone gets one warning.  Then the rest of the semester, if it goes in the Monsters, Inc. box, it goes to the office.  Good luck!

August 2013:  

...Might as well kick off the coming year with something funny and gross!:

Fast Food is Gross - A Media Literacy Lesson Free!  

Use this a funny/gross quick video to show that advertising isn't all it says it is! Someone went to different fast food restaurants and bought an item and then took it home and took a picture (without doing anything to it). The presentation shows the photo from the advertisement, then the real thing!! It’s amazing (and funny and gross) to see what these REALLY look like.

Have a great beginning to your new year!
Mrs. S.
