For the Teacher Critics in Your Life

Thanks to my friend Harold Shaw this morning I found a good article from eSchool News titled Ten Common Myths About Teaching. In the article educators explain the truth in response to misconceptions about our profession. Read the article and keep it in your playbook for the next time you're at a dinner party with non-educators. And if that doesn't work you could always take the routes of Taylor Mali or Matt Damon.

Grading Student Blogging

Grading the work students create online is new territory for a lot of teachers. Creating a well written rubric for any assignment can be time consuming even if you are familiar with the medium your students are working in. If you're trying to create a rubric for work students are doing in a new or an unfamiliar medium the task can be downright daunting. Fortunately, there are people like Ryan Bretag who are willing to share ideas about grading the content students create online. Ryan has published, under a Creative Commons license, a rubric for grading student blogs.

By the way in case you're not familiar with it, Rubistar from is a great place to get ideas for rubrics and create rubrics for a wide range of student work.
