Yay for October! In reality, it has been a big month for me. I thought that changing from Middle School to Upper School would be a slight adjustment, but whoa. I do not have as many “administrative” duties. My schedule is very different though. I am also wondering if it is my switch to doing more proficiency based grading assessments. They are not as quick to grade as quizzes. Has anyone else found this?
Also, I like to say that the rhythm of both is different. This is definitely a new rhythm for me. I am starting to feel more comfortable, but I know it will take some time. Anyway, as far as blogging goes, I feel like I either have no clue where to start or so much to say that I can’t decide what to post! I know that it will come naturally to me.
It promises to be a rainy weekend for most people, so here are some articles to read while you are inside!
- Here are 37 online resources for teaching in the target language.
- What a great post about pre-assessing students and setting goals using IPAs!
- Since it is October, Dustin shared his unit for Día de los Muertos with resources from other teachers too.
- Cynthia has a great blog about using CI to work with comparisons.
