Conversations ranged from talking shop about ideas to engage and improve upon the already robust #michED community in the next year to getting to know each other on a personal level as fellow colleagues.

Blending Rhythm?

Exploring the importance of slowing down for reflection.

Written by Dave Goodrich on Wednesday, 09 July 2014.

Blending Rhythm?

I used to play this Daft Punk song often for my students between class hours. They loved it every time. Some of them would even sing to it when entering the classroom to find their seats. Music would play while they wrote in their journals about something related to the content we would be studying for the day or had covered the day before.
