DIY Playful Bookbinding and Paper Works by Paula Beardell Krieg

I recommend checking out Paula’s wonderful site for more DIY guides and examples of basic bookbinding/paper arts :)

We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.

xkcd: Kill Hitler

You really need to see the tag on this one, too.  I highly recommend going to the site and seeing the full cartoon.  Love me some xkcd.

Okay.  Yeah.  We all have this day, I guess.  But teach them to do better when you get back the next day, to use the technology for other things.  Many of them legitimately don’t know how, can’t see past King Koopa because they’ve never been asked to go farther than that.  If we keep walking out on them, they never will.  We can’t keep making the mistake that because they were raised with it, they are truly experts in all its applications.  

(I won’t comment on the irony of this being on Disney…)

Ever heard of Sketchnotes? In case you haven’t…it’s visual note-taking. This is a great Powerpoint [and another] explaining the how and what and why.

I’ve been experimenting with sketchnotes for sermon notes, and have been slowly encouraging my students to try it out in class and anytime they’re listening to people talk. Some of them have really grabbed hold of it and love it. I’d like to utilize it more in the future - or at least teach it as a skill.
