after researching marvel which i am familiar with through my research for my class esp mental health issues Steve helped me organized my gmail account which will be a great help in grading and overall understanding of what i can do with gmail in my class as a teaching tool


i was wondering whether you can correct an essay that was posted on gmail such as spelling errors or circle important ideas that have been made or can you only reply with a grade and maybe a comment

I actually used my gmail account for my classes to send me their essay on racism from there it was up to me to print it off and then correct the essay just wondering would it be possible to corect the essays online and then send it back to the student

Using would benefit me more i think with my involvement in the coaching ranks than with the class room with a website totally dedicated to our baseball program we could get out a great deal of useful information that would not only benefit the players but also the parents as well as the baseball community With our strong booster organization we are always looking for ways to get out the information about fund raisers , schedules, special events etc what better way than a website totally dedicated to your particular team or sport I found that the more more I did the web design the better I got at designing what I wanted but still a far way from what I would use to promote our program I still need someone with some web design experience to give me some help

new computers

With each student now with a computer it will be much easier for me to assign students in class projects this will allow me to not only allow me to cover more topics but deal with the topics with more depth which will allow I hope a better and more extensive learning enviorment

Still trying to figure out where this type of learning would fit into my Health curriculum I wonder perhaps our group assignments and projects would be one place this might have some value It is my biggest challenge to try and found ways for this type of learning to be incorporated into my classroom


Back At It

With a new school year it is important to get off on the right foot both academically and with the organization of classes. It was difficult to wake up this morning with a new thought that at 2:30 I was going to this class with a whole new agenda and new ideas. It is seems overwhelming to start teaching again and then start with all the new concepts that I just started to digest just a couple of weeks ago but I guess it is just part of the learning process.
