These days, with i-movie, a digital camera or digital video recorder, wow the
sky's the limit. I am working on putting together "collections" to use in my
class room. Many of you already have slide shows and use i-movie. One thing
I find so amazing. I was in a meeting a week or so ago, and there was a
discussion about how much work a science teacher has to do vs. an art
teacher. How the science teacher is home every night grading papers and
powerpoint presentations...blah blah blah blah. Of course this administrator
who was babbling on was in no way going to be persuaded by little me.
However, I am sitting there thinking.....the science teacher has a
curriculum, he/she has a book and resource materials purchased by the
district. So at night, all he has to do is grade what the district tells him
to teach. I on the other hand, have to create my own curriculum find all my
own resource materials, create all my own assessments, display all the work
my students do, act as a resource to parents, teachers and students and then
still have to grade 450 pieces of work on a weekly basis....mmmm.....who has
more work?
