    to and from within a normally trusting community to boot The original newspaper article that exposed the marketing campaign was BIXI Blog et Bullshit by Patrick Lagacé of La Presse but you can read an English translation in the comments if you click on the Cycle Fun Montreal link above So Why am I writing about this The point here is that everyone I m assuming who read that blog thought it was the real deal They thought the authors were real people Enough so to befriend them on facebook one of the authors had over 800 of them according to an interview on CBC Luckily they ended up only being duped by an advertising firm and the City of Montreal I ll leave that can of worms closed People say that they only friend people facebook verb they know so what constitutes knowing people I teach my students about their online presence My students are about to leave high school or so we hope They are entering CEGEP or the job market and need to rethink things like that cutiehotty hotmail address and those partying pics they have on facebook They also need to take care of who they talk to and who has access to their info online We all do but they in particular teenagers are targets they don t have as much life experience and the world knows it Yesterday MissTeacha asked me what my classroom looks like in particular economics Here is an idea of how I am going to teach about advertising when they return from their 2 week stages woohoo they get 2 weeks of work study which they love and we get 2 weeks to gain strength before the last few weeks of school which we need next Wednesday It d be great if that blog were still up but since it s not I may recreate one like it to present to them or I may just share the story of BIXI show some videos BIXI marketing videos and those that are but maybe don t look like marketing videos We d have a conversation either full class or in smaller groups about advertising it s purpose deceptive qualities how it plays with our emotions I d then have them explore this post at Fagstein s blog Why do Marketing Companies Hate Themselves along with it s accompanying links with various reactions to the BIXI marketing campaign Then we might debate good solid campaign vs dirty rotten scheme or is it better to market by any means necessary or to be truthful at all times something like that Eventually down the road though our school year is almost over so we don t have much time I d love for them to create their own sneaky marketing campaigns The idea is they search for their own meaning I don t need to teach them anything much beyond how to locate information and different strategies for organizing and thinking about the information

  • Leading From The Heart » How do we not give zeros? Voicethread response.
    some movie comments have I been under a rock or is this new There are 60 some odd comments mine is waaaaaaaaaaay at the end Getting to the point It got me to thinking that I could record a voicethread instead of a podcast for my blog and that commentary could come in many forms Either as traditional blog comments or typed audio or webcam comments directly on the voicethread So Let s try it out That very same Miss Teacha left a comment a little while ago on an older post of mine Why I Don t Do Zeros She asks difficult questions Let s try to address them together shall we I warned you I d be tagging you Please invite others you think could add to the conversation Michael Hugh Joel Dr Jan Pat Linda Jose Douglas Marcy Elona Diane Angela Stockman Angela Maiers Liz Chris Scott Roberto Dr Douglas Reeves on Toxic Grading Practices Getting Things Done Voicethread image Report Card by Divine Harvester on Flickr Google Tracy Rosen 5 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Magistra M on April 12 2009 at 12 24 pm I think this is a very important and interesting topic And one that depends in many cases on the situation Sometimes the work is all about getting the project done I try to evaluate the process and not just the final product so that students who have a habit of just not finishing but follow many steps along the way and not permanently ruined by that final grade The students have no choice but to complete the tasks along the way At the same time when I have more than 80 students in 5 different classes sometimes their isn t enough time to devote to guiding every student through every lesson It is a sad reality of life that sometimes there just isn t enough time to do all that we would like to do I am not satisfied that giving a 50 or 60 is the best answer if a student has not done the work given a number of opportunities then credit has not been earned But I think keeping that window open so that students can come back and try again is important Tracy on April 13 2009 at 7 36 am I agree I love this But I think keeping that window open so that students can come back and try again is important There are certain things most throughout the year that I tell my students I mark in pencil If they can demonstrate that they are putting more time effort in trying to understand and complete their work then I have no problem changing marks Back to MissTeacha s original question But what about those kids who don t put any effort at all who don t seem to care Both you and Douglas

  • Leading From The Heart » Gotta Celebrate
    buying a house in the country as I received news that my financing has been approved It s a cute little place on about 27 000 sq ft of land partially forested There is even an insulated cabin that I ll be able to use as a studio for art Jacques Demers and the Stanley Cup from USA Today He shoots He scores Jacques Demers came to speak to some of the students at our school yesterday His style was loud brash and abrupt reminding us all that he was once an NHL hockey coach He told us of his difficult childhood with father who was either abusive or absent of his illiteracy and of making choices At one point he stopped his speech to dress down some kids who were being disruptive and making immature comments Some of my students actually applauded when he was done with them But that wasn t the big score The big score came later when we returned to class I feel the emotion rising even now as I remember it We started to talk about his speech in general when one of my students said she had to get something off of her chest She started to talk about her own difficult relationship with her father She continued to talk as tears rolled down her face and mine as well as a few of the other students in our class She talked about the complex range of emotions that she has been carrying inside herself for so many years and she decided then and there that she needs to speak with him and let him know about what she has been holding on to for so long Then she took a big breath and said she was done talking One of the other students gave her a hug and told her she loved her I was totally bowled over with the sense of community and hope in the room Forgiveness and Validation Yesterday evening I met with someone I hadn t seen in we determined 6 or 7 years maybe even longer We worked together over 15 years ago and the last time we saw each other we went on a few dates At one point I just didn t hear from him These things happen I ve met a few people in my life who from one day to the next I just don t hear from again They disappear But last night I received an apology for that and it made me feel good about people in general That we do care about each other and sometimes we even show it when it is least expected Major props to him for that To PhD or not to PhD Jose being all direct on me I totally ignored this tweet when I first saw it up until now even when I am finally responding to it When Jose asked it I was still in limbo but I ve since decided not to

  • Leading From The Heart » Is ‘lecture’ a 4-letter word?
    by email Kate T on March 16 2009 at 11 10 pm On the rare occasion that I lecture I find that because we have been modeling the cooperative model students feel free to engage in a discussion with me as the lecture progresses The lectures we all dread both giving and listening too are the painfully one sided power pointy or back in the day over heady brain dumps from a teacher who isn t really aware of whether or not the listeners are engaged I m delighted that your lecture went well today I am certain it is because you are a teacher that students feel respects their time intelligence and attention Kudos Kate Ts last blog post at site If I had a theme song Nightwalker on March 17 2009 at 8 47 pm Although lectures may be a comfortable resort for a teacher as everything is planned before hand and chances of unexpected events are slim it is wiser to devise one s teaching to be a true learning through exploration instead of explanation Acquisition occurs by doing not by viewing Lectures are long explanations while learning is deep exploration Nightwalkers last blog post at site Why do teachers teach Tracy on March 18 2009 at 6 04 am I think you are right Kate Because we model that it is ok to challenge and question the students are comfortable with it and turn a lecture into an exploratory activity Nightwalker read some more of my blog posts and you will see that my teaching style is very student centered In fact lecture is not a comfortable resort for me and other teachers who hold the same assumptions about lectures as I described in this post That was the whole idea behind the post I assumed that lectures were uni dimensional teacher centered and boring and I was proven wrong by the level of engagement of my students I will respectfully argue your point that everything is planned before hand and chances of unexpected events are slim For sure the basic content is planned but there was no way for me to plan the questions and level of inquiry that my students had Angela on March 31 2009 at 4 56 pm LOVE this post I ve featured it in this month s accolades at The Cornerstone http thecornerstoneforteachers blogspot com 2009 03 cornerstone accolades march 2009 html Tracy Rosen on April 3 2009 at 4 40 pm Thanks for dropping by Angela You ve collected some great posts at The Cornerstone I m honoured to be included Tracy Rosens last blog post at site Gotta Celebrate Lola on April 5 2009 at 7 00 pm Nightwalker please tell us how to teach about nullification specifically the crisis with South Carolina and federalism by exploration I m dying to know Look we concede that discovery is an ideal way to learn Building knowledge together is fabulous too Practicing a skill is terrific But no one can
