Mr. Flores wears a mask. 12h
Anyone assigning students to compile a 2020 mixtape with analysis and justification for their choices? It's a good way to learn about them and build relationships.

It's important at this time of remote learning that students be given material that heavily focuses on prior knowledge for reading comprehension. Mending the gap between student understanding is the first step to handling the difficulties brought on by virtual learning.

Interesting question on censorship, but I believe there is another question that must be asked before we consider this question. Has the direction of our school systems moved further away from a model that supports the individual?

Yo! 1978 was only 42 years ago! That is not enough time to expect Indigenous Americans to fully trust an education system created by colonizers, for the benefit of colonizers.

This is a really great tool I wasn’t aware of. I’ll definitely be using this at some point.

Public libraries are a great resource for ebooks! Websites like Poetry Foundation provide free access to so many different poems/poets!

I think the best way to go about this is to encourage students to talk about how the book has affected them and changed their lives personally, and how it could help spark a positive change in the world.

I run a book blog and I plan to make a list of some of my favorite banned books, and some banned books I hope to read one day (when I get the time!)

Zoom would be a fantastic tool to give students a somewhat normal face to face setting. Flipgrid would also work super well, because it’s a bit less awkward and more like Snapchat, which students are very familiar with.

I know it’s a twitter cheat and a lot to read on a Monday AM, but these Carl Rogers quotes prepped me for the week in a way nothing else could: Our labor has meaning and our empathy is courageous. Press on, folks! ✨

I teach at a career tech high school and was inspired by With Fire On High to build a unit with choice books built around the programs my students are in. Any ideas or suggestions?

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin” by Mark Twain. I read this book during on of my college literature classes and many students had something that they wanted to say about it.

Middle school Ss lines of the day: 1. “I don’t smile, I smirk.” 2. “If I smile, it hurts my face.” 3. “I may get kidnapped without my phone.” 4. “I’ve had too much knowledge today.”

I think that using apps to help interact with the students about books that are a bit controversial will help tremendously. I think it would help if the teacher would make their own video first to express their views on the challenging. We could all still see everyone.

So I do not have my own classroom yet, but in the future I would want to read and/or research banned books with my students. I would like to raise awareness to the censorship and inform them on banned books. As a young person I never learned about banned books.

I have found that using zoom or other forms of FaceTime chats make things easier to discuss. Also recordings of reading aloud to students then pausing to explain things works. Discussion forums can still make things difficult and confusing to students.
