6 Reasons I'm Not a Perfect Teacher, and That's OK - WeAreTeachers I’m really good at a lot of things. I’m a good cook. I know how to identify a variety of native plant and tree species. I can quote virtually every inspirational speech from all five seasons of Friday Night Lights. I’m a good teacher in a lot of ways. 1. Y’all folks with your Pinterest and your chevrons and your cute crafts and your organized supplies impress me, you really do. 2. My kids do some amazing work. 3. People who keep a list of assignments that students should have in their binders: How? 4. I can do it for, like, 15 minutes at the beginning of class. 5. If I keep candy in my room, I will eat it. 6. This one is sometimes an intentional choice. This barely scratches the surface of ways I’m failing as a teacher. But consider this the opposite of a New Year’s resolution.

Betygssamtal utifrån checklistan i ESP - Mia Smith Som betygssättande lärare är man van vid att frågorna kommer strax före lucia. ”När ska vi ha betygssamtal?” Det eleverna i det läget vill veta är vilken bokstav de kommer kunna läsa sig till på pappret i kuvertet som skickas hem några veckor senare. Ska jag lägga dyrbar undervisningstid på detta? Jag har valt att lägga mina individuella samtal efter jul i år. Eleverna vet redan vilket betyg de har fått, och i det här läget kan vi i stället blicka framåt. Hur lägger man då upp samtalen? Eleven har fyllt i olika nivåer på olika förmågor. Som lärare ser jag enbart fördelar med att använda mig av checklistan, till exempel kan jag se att någon enstaka förmåga utmärker sig. Även om eleverna inte tycker att själva ifyllandet är det mest spännande momentet under läsåret upplever jag att eleverna får en större förståelse för ämnets uppbyggnad när vi använder dem. Checklistorna finns för de olika stegen i GERS-skalan.

The Parent Trap (1998 film) - Wikipedia In 1986, American Nick Parker (Dennis Quaid) and Briton Elizabeth James (Natasha Richardson) meet and get married during an ocean cruise on the RMS Queen Elizabeth II. After the birth of their twin daughters—Annie and Hallie (Lindsay Lohan)—Nick and Elizabeth get a divorce. The divorcing couple agrees that each parent will raise one of the twins without telling her about her sister, and thereafter lose contact with one another. Nick raises Hallie in Napa Valley and becomes a wealthy wine grower, while Elizabeth raises Annie in London and becomes a famous and successful wedding gown designer. In 1998, Nick and Elizabeth coincidentally enroll their daughters at the same all-girls summer camp in Maine called Camp Walden. Living together in the Isolation Cabin, Hallie and Annie discover they were born on the same day, and each has half of a torn wedding photograph of their parents. When camp is over, the twins put their plan into action.
