The Blunt Educator 
Funny, Not Funny

Greetings Sequoyah, 

I ran across the Blunt Educator today on twitter. It is an honest look at teaching. Reminding me to do some things differently, and to stay on track with other aspects of my educational practice. 

Give the Blunt Educator a follow at https://twitter.com/BluntEducator

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy

Dining Out 
OKC Eats

Greetings Sequoyah, 

I wish I had seen the tweet earlier in the break but Eater has published the top 15 hottest restaurants in OKC. Every place on the list looks good and I have tried several of them. The Sunday Brunch (chicken and waffles) at R&J Lounge is great. I was not keen on the oysters at The Drake, could have been an off shipment but $30 for six oysters, a soda pop, and tip was a bit too much for me. 

Anyway. I just wanted to share... http://www.eater.com/maps/best-new-restaurants-oklahoma-city

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome,

A Twitter Feed 
Classroom Tweets

Greetings Sequoyah, 

I pictured a bunch of birds lined up at a trough with this title. Amy Fine shared a link on twitter. Looking at the Show Your Thinking blog there is a great twitter based activity (http://showyourthinkingmath.blogspot.com/2015/10/sharing-twitter-feed-with-students.html

I like the idea of a twitter wall. This extends it even more. The idea of Google Forms is great. At the OTA conference several of the presenters used Google Forms to get immediate feedback from the audience. It is a great tool in the classroom. 

I have been thinking too about mobile devices. Many of the modern smart phones will work on wifi only. If parents/students donate old devices to the school for classroom use we could get more devices in the hands of students without a BYOD. 

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy

Coaching & Mentoring 
A Follow Up

Greetings Sequoyah, 

I sent Dr. Ellis a tweet about his presentation and he gave me the link to his Google Slides. (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0gnZslRRuKSaTlEbnRSX2V6TDQ/view

This is very helpful in outlining the expectations of the two roles and their effective use in the educational setting. I have since been searching online for more information on this process. It seems there is a substantial and well documented movement in the practice of coaching/mentoring. 

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy
