    I almost rolled on the floor laughing when grammar man came out. I feel your pain! Love the red letter idea. Love how you worked in some elegant French. I am emboldened to turn the laser pointer over to a kid. Creation of classroom community and buy-in – superb job. One of the problems I see at school is that in an order to have everything neat and tidy, the admin does everything for the kids – they aren’t involved in stuff that normally binds a school community – like decorating for the prom, choosing the venue and the menu for the prom,painting the sets for the play, or planning the liturgy. If a kid is on a sports team, they can develop camaraderie, but sports teams have become serious business and not everybody gets to play – we have kids actually leave because of it. All of that conspires to create an atmosphere that is kind of sterile – everyone is on their electronic device and there is no esprit de corps. It just hit me the other day when my colleagues and I were talking about this why jobs in the classroom are SO powerful. It pulls everyone together. Great video series, Ben.

    Ben, I can’t thank you enough for putting up those videos. No matter how many hours I sit in a TCI workshop, nothing compares to watching the real thing. This is, once again, such an important reminder to go slow and deep. Lately, I feel that I have been rushing through the reading parts of the stories because I think that the kids get it. But they really don’t. Maybe they think they do as well, but only for the moment. I need to give them the chance to have it sink in much deeper. That’s what it always comes down to – SLOW. Now on to Sabrina’s demo – so excited!
