Students Today As of 2008, the average U.S. household had more than 118.6 television channels; In 1985 the average was 19 channels (Nielson Media Research). 955 million monthly active users at the end of June 2012.

Who had a dream? By James May 4) The key to success in teaching is simplification (less is more). 3) If properly tapped, the collective wisdom, experience and creativity of any group of practicing educators far surpasses that of any individual expert of any stature or fame. 2) Creativity in teaching is enhanced by mixing teachers of diverse fields, experience levels, and interests. 1) In the long run, teachers learn to teach best from one another. Properly facilitated shop talk can be the highest form of staff development. The Great Teachers Movement was originally started in 1969 by David B. Gottshall and was originally called "The Illinois Great Teachers Seminar The focus of the seminar is not on the teaching of specific fields, but rather on the art of teaching as such. The emphasis is on the nature of a great teacher. It is a quest for The Great Teacher, and, as in the case of any quest, the questers learn much about themselves. For another year or two, we will give Mike McHargue credit for the CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) philosophy of faculty development There are no manuals or handbooks, only a few simple guidelines. Everything is passed on by oral tradition in order to prevent the development of any form of true-believership or fixed procedure that might come to be followed to the letter and of which the education professional would soon tire. The trouble with schedules is that, once they are announced, one must stick to them or one appears “out of control”. Thus, there is no room for alteration of any sort or merit. If something useful comes up, it must be rejected. Thanks for listening. Here is the QR code to my blog where you will find a copy of this presentation and everything I have referenced!
