Blog Start Dec 5

Getting ready to attend a high school admissions open house  with our 8th grader.  High school selection is challenging in San Francisco: 15 public, 13 private, 4 charter, plus parochial.  Then I'll jam down the coast, experiencing the thrill of Devil's Slide, passing Moss Beach where I performed a wedding ceremony on a gorgeous cliff, recalling great breakfasts at the Half Moon Bay airport cafe, rejoicing in our honeymoon in Miramar; and today coming to the conference hotel for the first time.

Wish I had more time to learn elements of this, my first blog.

Reading the brief chapters that pertain to education in a book, This Will Change Everything: Ideas That Will Shape the Future, ed. Brockman (Harper 2010). Including At Last: Technology Will Change Education by H. Harari; Inexpensive Customizable Interactive E-Texts for Worldwide Use by D. Myers; A web-Empowered Revolution in Teaching by C. Anderson.     more on these soon.

Favorite teaching book: Fulfilling the Promise of the Differentiated Classroom, by C. Tomlinson. Wish I'd read before entering a classroom for the first time.
