My last day with students was a little over a week ago and I wrapped up post-planning last week. Now, on my first day of summer vacation, I find I’m thinking about “next year”. Sheesh, I need to just go lay out by the pool!
Here are the things I’m contemplating:
- Teaching superhero physics for an entire year instead of merely a final project. I’m primarily referencing The Physics of Superheroes by James Kakalios.
- Creating a geometry class I’d like to be in. This is the one math class I’m teaching next year, it was my top choice among high school maths, and I’ll be evaluated in this class by my GSU advisors. That’s a lot of pressure!
- Taking “Integrating Technology into School-Based Learning” for my Masters program at Georgia State. How can I make this course relevant to me?
- How else can I minimize gasoline use? (I found this article in Wired interesting: “Inconvenient Truths: Get Ready to Rethink What it Means to be Green”.
I’ll be skipping NECC in San Antonio this summer because it conflicts with the summer semester. It’s a shame because I really enjoyed the conference last year.
