@dfteach I also leave my behavior info for a sub, but they don't always follow it. Beat the teacher is easy to explain and do, it would be easy for a sub. When they are on task, following directions, etc, they get a point. When they aren't, you get a point. They want to try and beat you.
@dfteach Teacher vs student, individual star charts, super improved walls, brag tags, all sorts of things.
@nettiedaz @krdonnelly That sounds like a companies not meeting the needs of their employees problem. It sounds like a community needs problem. It doesn't sound like an education problem.
@yvrteacher @krdonnelly @BChris91 Yep. We get 8-9 weeks. Last year I had 90 hours of "voluntary" (not really but they can't say it's mandatory) training and PD.
@didier_paul @redoaksmember @krdonnelly Summer is absolutely recovery.
@jsquared2k3 @redoaksmember @krdonnelly I would never fully be off. I'd stay in work mode and never end up resting. I'd burn out faster than I already am.
@MathCurmudgeon @redoaksmember @krdonnelly We don't even have air conditioning.
@krdonnelly We are letting children be children? Some of my fondest childhood memories are of lazy summer days. Children need more play, not less.

@peachlemonbee Really great reading frequently does free training, and they are excellent. A RGR in person PD is what started me on my SOR journey 5 years ago.
@kvalanne @bolanostrio They don't know how. We are spoonfeeding test prep answers. They can't think on their own.
@bolanostrio It is blatantly obvious that my scripted curriculum in grade 1 is designed to create test takers. Not learners. Not kids who wonder, inquire, & explore. No. Kids who can write text responses and choose multiple answer questions w accuracy. The joy has been stolen from learning.
@bolanostrio Yes. Even in 1st. There's trauma from covid sure. But there's educational trauma too. Teachers working conditions are students learning conditions. Teachers are broken and battered. We must read scripts with fidelity. There is no fun, no play, no learning through laughter.
@MrWolff76 @WeAreTeachers That's in your child's school? Most of the posts I have seen that claim they are showing images from that book, are actually from a different book.
@MrWolff76 @WeAreTeachers What books with porn are in your child's school?
@NymanShelley @msjang01 @ELeducation @SoRclassroom This curriculum is a nightmare for everyone.
@Gramma_Barbie @DrTeresaSanders Because we aren't allowed to. We must follow the script with fidelity and can't make changes.
@karikelly1960 @DrTeresaSanders Our all green ed reports SOR program is producing results like this. 🤷♀️
@DrTeresaSanders @MelissaGrilione It's completely normal in my school. It wasn't, but now we must teach a script with FiDeLiTy and assessments don't matter, we don't reteach just stick the score in a spreadsheet and keep going. When we bring concerns to admin we are basically told to shut up and don't change it
@ScienceIsLife17 @IWasInTheMiddle @teachcrap There needs to be community supports for food security. All of the world's problems can not fall on schools and teachers shoulders.
@SketchesbyBoze My grandson has level 3 support needs. These are difficult questions because while he is absolutely a joy, there is a lot of struggle too. For him, and those who love him.
@JustinAion So interesting that the same party that champions parents rights is also the party taking away parents rights for gender affirming medical care.
@bstockus Fishtank learning looks promising. It's the first curriculum I've seen that's not jam packed 180 days. It leaves days open for the life that happens
@bstockus Yes. And you know you can't possibly do it all, and the curriculum trainers know you can't do it all, but the district says WITH FIDELITY.
@MarisaEThompson Scripted curriculum with excessive assessments. The prep isn't any better and it's stolen my joy.
@IWasInTheMiddle @ScienceIsLife17 @teachcrap You know, that makes me think of the school is childcare argument. I mean, it is. But for who? Probably middle class parents. Many of my students parents (title 1 rural), work rotating shifts, evenings, weekends. When I was a young parent I worked 11:00-9 four days a week.
@SteinbrinkLaura Allow them to teach. Mandating a scripted curriculum and not allowing discussion, revision, or any teacher voice is a sure fire way to burn out a lot of teachers.
@offgridteacher @mrbgilson In 1st grade even. Our new curriculum has a gazillion assessments & some of them are so tricky on purpose. Ex: A picture of a bird on a twig. What does perch mean? To sit, to sit on a twig or branch, or to climb on a twig or branch. At no time do we talk about perch or this pic
@mrbgilson Yes! I don't understand why the tests seem designed to trick students.
@ScienceIsLife17 @IWasInTheMiddle @teachcrap I completely agree with that. But I still don't think that means their day needs to mimic a work day.
