So, where do I start. I know many schools who are using google classroom who gave this schedule to staff. It makes no sense to use a bell schedule for such a platform @NYCMayor @DOEChancellor (cont.)
1- there is NO WAY of tracking which students sign in and at what time using Google Classroom
2- even if you could, why reduce learning to 25min periods when this platform allows for students to have access to assignments 24/7, that's the whole point of online courses! (Cont.)
3- the time time flexibility of an online course is exactly what students need, especially in a time when many parents may be working from home and may need to use the computer
4- this takes NO ACCOUNT into families with multiple children who need to sign on

@OCPSnews Why are you making #Teachers come into school next week to go digital when we have been told by @RonDeSantisFL to stay home and all schools are closed?? #MyTeacherWife is afraid of getting #COVID19 from one of her co-workers and then giving it to me and/or her 1/1
elderly parents who we are taking care of during the #CoronavirusPandemic by bringing them food and supplies so they do not have to leave their homes and get sick. You are endangering my wife, her parents, myself, her co-workers and their families!! You should be ashamed to 2/2
even think this is a good idea. If you truly cared about your #Teachers and their families you would not make them do this at all. If you want to go digital I heard there is this new digital tool called E-MAIL where people exchange information and communicate with each other 3/3

#Thread #Tips for #HomeSchool #Teachers - (Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

🤦🏽‍♀️Keep #children on the #schedule they use on a regular school day. Wake up times, school timetable and bed times.

🤦🏽‍♀️Ensure they complete activities within the time given for the session on the time table
🤦🏽‍♀️Allow the free time only during the day based on the timetable and let them do a fun activity of their choice.

🤦🏽‍♀️They will #manipulate you by saying they are hungry or want to sleep but at school there are specific times for eating and rest time.
🤦🏽‍♀️ They WILL want to go to the bathroom many times, especially when working on a subject/topic they do not like or don’t understand or if something else interests them. You will have to use your discretion with this.

🤦🏽‍♀️Create a space for to work - quiet with little distraction

I found my 7 year old digging through the house for change. I asked why. He owes Carmen, la elotera who sells corn & fruit outside his school, $1.50. I will remember this moment when folks ask why that school, that neighborhood. 1/6
He knows her NAME and schedule ("cada jueves, a veces los miércoles"). #dignity #respect #streetvendors
He is doing MATH ("elote en el palo $2, en la copa $3). #informaleconomy

One of my 5th-grade students said something yesterday like, "it's not like segregation in the past," then our class paraprofessional replied, "it's little known that NYC has the most segregated public schools system in the US." Then I showed them a racial dot map of NYC. 1/
2/ Here's that racial dot map of NYC. Each dot reps 120 of one race, so it's a visual of racial segregation. On this map, white is green, Black is blue, Latinx is orange, and Asian is red. Source from a 2015 @nytimes article:…

See how segregated NYC is?!
3/ I asked my students if they knew white or black kids- most said no. I zoomed into Sunset Park on that map and showed the majority of ppl living there were orange and red dots, Latinx and Asian, and that their neighborhood, like almost all of NYC, is ridiculously segregated.

I'm a teacher at Al Ameen Public school Edappally, Ernakulam. Every month the management forcefully collects blank cheques from us. Then they credit the CBSE recommended salary to the teacher's account. Within minutes, they debit around 9000 from our accounts and evade the tax.
When I complained about this corruption, to the CM n enquiry came, the manager Siyad koker, Academic counselor Thahar, Principal Lekshmi Haridas and Vice principal Shafeena Nisam called me alone to the room and threatened me and terminated me from service.
As a teacher I believe it's my duty to voice against the exploitation of teachers by the school management. It's our duty to stop this financial fraud. They are evading large amounts of income tax for the past decades. I hope the authority would look into this matter.

This 👇was a #MustRead for me since it was sent by a friend I respect a lot .

I was so glad I read it and actually found it #TooGoodNotToShare


It’s Not related to stock market swings nor to some juicy gossip but
A very nice one.

Reading highly recommended
A young man saw his primary school teacher on a wedding.
He went to greet him with all the respect and admiration.

He said to him:
"Do you remember me, Teacher?"

The teacher said: "No, please introduce yourself."
The student said: "I was your student in the 3rd Grade, I am the one who stole the watch of a child in the classroom. I will remind you but I am sure you remember the story."

One of the boys in my class had a beautiful watch, so I decided to steal it.

Indian Government is currently paying 1500 crores (~150 million USD) per year for journal subscriptions and around 200 (~20 million USD) crores APC charges for #OpenAccess says @kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI speaking at @DSTCPRIISc Unlocking the doors to knowledge repositories
@kvijayraghavan @PrinSciAdvGoI @DSTCPRIISc Knowledge has been the driver of social and economic change. Around 54% of our industry workforce is not skilled. This is not good for a knowledge-based economy. Rural reach is also key to bridge the Rural-Urban divide (India and Bharat).
Research is necessary for a knowledge-based society. 95% of our students go to a state university, where very little research is done! Research is not focussed on our issues and import heavy! There is a need to scale up local resources for conducting research.

The #RightToEducationAct makes it the govt’s responsibility to ensure the primary education of each child,irrespective of caste,class &religion. But in #Maharashtra,children from marginalized communities face increasing hurdles in accessing #education. #MaharashtraElections2019👇
In #Amravati,@Dev_Fadnavis's govt not only refused to recognise a school started by a Phanse Pardhi teacher for kids from his long-stigmatised & impoverished community, but demolished it to build a "prosperity highway", leaving them anxious & uncertain.
Meanwhile, as #schools are being demolished to build prosperity highways,elsewhere in #Maharashtra, 8y.o. Yash Mahalunge from an isolated hamlet in Shahapur taluka has to risk his life everyday to attend school after the only bridge here collapsed in 2005.

#Teachers: If you're trying to help students make sense of @ABC's false use of gun range footage in a report on Sunday about violence in Syria, here are some pointers:
1. Don't be cynical: Despite the online rantings of bad-faith partisans, there is no evidence that this was intentional nor ideologically-motivated. The conflict in Syria is highly newsworthy & the motivation here was almost certainly to get a sensational, great-for-TV clip.
2. Wouldn't make sense for ABC News: While using visuals like videos & photos in false contexts is an extremely common strategy employed by misinformation purveyors, it's almost always exposed. This strategy makes sense for opportunists looking for get quick clicks, or for...

It’s clear #education space is in dire need of a #virtuousinsurgency like the gov benefits from right now. The time wasting, snowflake treating daily drama, hula hoop inefficiencies teachers deal w/ from school districts makes me want to scream. Needs total rework. @DonWettrick
Had dinner with a new teacher last night, there’s not enough space to list the shocking amount of BS she’s asked to swallow every day.

Don’t @ me about not pushing back against policies + norms on behalf of kids. The kids suffer more bc teachers don’t collectively push back.
Open invite for #teachers to apply for @GovCityHQ to the November cohort. I’ll leave 5-10 seats open for those of you who want to meet the #virtuousinsurgency and learn how to build your own movement like they have.

Right, I said I’d do a follow up thread for what happened after this incident yesterday, so this is today’s second thread on how #teachers can be more specific to help #autistic students understand what you’re asking them to do. #EduTwitter 1/
The second thing that caused a Fairy meltdown yesterday was the art teacher asking the students to choose ‘a famous painting’ from google image search. She said it could be any painting, it didn’t matter what they chose. 2/
Most people would think that giving a free choice like this would be easier than setting specific parameters by which to choose.

Not so if you’re autistic. The choice is too wide, and it’s overwhelming. 3/

(Don’t do this very often but....) A #Thread:
We’re nearly at that time of year when #teachers are having #Inset and #training days. Every year I read through the horrors of such days on #edutwitter through the later days of August and the early days of September...
I read about awful training, cringe at quotes from course providers and feel my skin crawl at the thought of sitting through some of it. Dreadful stuff. Nail-digging-into-palm-stuff. I don’t like it at all.
When I’m working with teacher colleagues, I am absolutely giving my best. I don’t take anything for granted. Today there were 200 of us in a tent at a racecourse in #Leicester. This is a big day. It’s chuffing boiling and we all know it. I am delivering for five hours.....

64% of teachers use "Teachers Pay Teachers" website.

What will I find if I search there, using "Native American" as the search term?
I entered the phrase and got this far:

"Native American"

The autofill gave me "Native Americans" (obvious) but the second one is "Native Americans totem pole."

Does that mean that queries about totem poles are popular on this site?
For now, I'll do the "Native Americans" search and see what teachers are sharing on that site. Having been on the site before, I'm not optimistic.
