Ecology, woohoo! My summer is going well, slightly unproductive, but going well. I really like your keep tool kit. You'll have to show me how to dress mine up.

It's going okay. I need to set aside time to put up my lesson plans. I'm one of those ppl who likes doing stuff on paper, and transferring it to the computer takes me a while...not that it's hard, just annoying, I guess. lol.

How's summer going?

my summer has some good and some bad: i hurt my shoulder at work, but my boyfriend proposed (don't worry, we're waiting to get married at least until i graduate), but I probably should have done more work on lesson plans and stuff. lol.

btw, hard copies rock!

Hey,

I decided to research interships last weekend, and I was looking through the discussion boards and noticed your intrique with them too. I think the site I found would captive you as it did me:

Here's the link to find out about ALL the government-sponsored interships.
http://www.scied.science.doe.gov/scied/sci_ed.htm

And if you click on the PST, click the "choosing a lab" link and you can see where each lab is located and what each lab does, then, check the "important dates" link at the top of the PST page to make sure you get your stuff in on time.

Have fun! :)

Yeah, the classroom is awesome. I'm finding that diversified instruction is more than something you learn; it's more of a habit that you have to create. My mentor teacher is really awesome about letting her students work together and actually facilitating learning rather than loading the students with a ton of facts. I also have a bunch of lab instructions and worksheets that you should check out.

Advice...find a way to relieve stress! Really though, everything is going pretty well considering (teaching in 3 different classrooms, making up a curriculum to a class, having a class of freshmen, then 2 classes of juniors/seniors).
My best advice
1. Do not take things personally, because for the most part, it isn't personal, the students are just...hormonal I guess.
2. Be super-organized. Students can't blame you for losing their work if you have a record of never misplacing anything. Plus if you have to create a curriculum binder (we do at our school site for each course we teach), it will be much easier to do if you can find all your materials.
3. Stick to your guns. Don't let kids push you around. Enforce your rules, even when they're trying to wear you down. It's a game they try out with all new teachers :)

How is student teaching going? I know that I should know this, but after a semester, I totally forgot! Where are you doing your final? Enjoy your break!

Hi! So I finally have had a chance to send you my syllabus, and now I can't figure out how to attach it in a comment to you. Can you send me your email address so I can send it?
