On a different note, I'm working with Annette Garcia again this year. My focus will be how to use the SIOP lesson plan to convey all the information I need it to. For example sub plans. I used to use an agenda format in the plan book and it was great for me, but I need it to address the needs of an outsider - interpretation, understanding, standards, direction, order, etc. Hopefully it works out so I'm not spending hours doing it.

Introduce that mathematics is more about how you explain yourself than about having the correct response. First show the skit of Ma & Pa Kettle. Have the student Think Pair Share about what they saw, if they think it works - yes, come up with another example; no, come up with a counter example. Have them report back to the class what they discussed and their samples (example or counter example). Then have the class debate what Ma & Pa did that looks correct, have them discuss why it sounds right, and why it truly is wrong.
Second, show the clip on numbers. Have them reproduce the experiment and answer questions about their results. Have them share with other class members their findings and discuss the possibility that changing your first choice would truly increase your chances of wining the car.
Technology Integration (equipment and strategies):
21st Century Skills/NETS-S Standards:
II. Communication and Collaboration
communicate information and ideas effectively using media
IV. Critical Thinking
identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation

I had no idea but it took all of the work time yesterday to put together the smartboard and the cart, now I gotta make sure it all works before my plan to use it next week for class. I find it difficult to make actual lesson plans, instead of an agenda. Hopefully as I use the SIOP google doc it will become easier.
So I just finished capturing and editing a how to video on embedding your google calendar into a contribute webpage, it was long and tedious. Jenn, Tonia, and Tom liked it so hopefully it works. I'm currently experiencing trouble uploading it to teachertube for an HTML code so I'll try others, but the link is http://acsd14technology.wikispaces.com/Google+calendar+embed
