When am I Ever Going to Use This?

For all my teacher friends looking for a cache of ready-made answers to this commonly asked question, I recommend having a look at these "real world" movies at the Futures Channel. Each video is of excellent quality and comes with a student/teacher lesson for download.

Bravo. I love the concept of putting pencils down... let's just talk about what's on your mind, students. I recommend Neil Postman and Weingartner, Dennis Littky ( and Dennis Yuzenas www.Whatdoyaknow.com. Your commonsense writing is fabulous for new teachers. I hope you will write to me HappyMathTeacher@gmail.com and look at http://www.guideontheside.com and make comments. I'd like to include some of your blog entries in the book.

My other location is theguideontheside@gmail.com .. please think about which of your blog entries answer the question, "How can we put more fire in our lessons?" as in The purpose of education is not to fill a bucket but to light a fire.
