Trying Stupeflix

I subscribe to http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ and this week they mentioned stupeflix. Thought I try it out and see if I like it. I do. This is a video of last year's track team. Was easy to make. Took about 10 mins to convert to video format. The site was really easy to use. Buttons were user-friendly. I'm digging it!

  2. "Man up"

  4. "SHOW YOUR WORK"
  5. "Label your units"
  6. "I understand what you're saying, but then I don't understand what you're saying"
  7. "It's gonna be okay"

How to Talk to Girls

Great book! It's genius! Full of juicy nuggets of advice. Things I didn't learn until I was in college! This was written by a 5th grader. This can be a great advisory discussion or just something you want to pass on to a group of hormonal middle schoolers. Whatever works.
