the short way is the long way

What are real-life examples of experiences that are 'shortcuts' to accomplishing something, even though they might be very difficult because of the required intensity? For example, military training supposedly develops a kind of physical and mental discipline that would take a civilian longer to acquire. Rapid learning techniques that allow someone to learn several languages faster than most people learn one is another example. What are others?

Seeing inspirational and mind-blowing videos for kids

What can I show children to inspire and wow them? I teach children aged between 9 and 11.

No, really. I insist.

I fucked up at work. I offered a favor back to the person who had to bear the brunt of my fuckuppery. I think they are declining out of politeness. I understand that impulse, but I still want to do something to make things right, and have relatively few avenues where I can do that. Am I overlooking something? Am I overstepping (or risking overstepping) boundaries? [more inside]

Explaining forces to a 10 year old

My 10 year old daughter (Year 6, UK) was recently given homework to "explain how the following works": a) gravity; b) air resistance; c) magnetism; d) upthrust; e) friction. My initial thought was that there is a Nobel prize in the offing if she can truly explain some of these, however, less flippantly, I struggled with how to do this in terms that a 10 year old would understand. Can anyone do any better? [more inside]

Help me come up with exciting "sharing themes" for my second graders!

Part-time work for outdoorsy science-minded retired teacher?

My mom is 65. She's been teaching math & science at a high school for years. She's getting ready to retire, and would like to work (not just volunteer) part-time for a few years.

Help us choose a country to live in

We are thinking of applying for jobs in international schools in the next few years. We'd like to choose between Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia or Hong Kong. What we would prefer - a financial situation that is a little more comfortable than the one we can have in Melbourne on 2 teaching wages (private sector so slightly better pay than state). This could mean only one of us working but getting housing included - a situation that is conducive to the fact that we will have one small child (baby due soon) We've both been to KL and travelled reasonably extensively in Indonesia. We have some contacts in Jakarta. I've spent a day in Singapore and neither of us have been to Hong Kong. We'd appreciate info on lifestyle, housing costs and the kinds of packages one is likely to get from an international school. [more inside]

How can I finish my MAT graduate degree in another school?

I'd like to know what options I have for finishing a MAT (or MIT) graduate degree in and around Boston when basically I'm missing the practicum and student teaching but have acquired almost all required academic courses aside from that. I'd want to transfer something like 70-90% of my credits. I can no longer stay in my program (thanks to my advisor's say-so: it's not that I'm failing), and transferring 2 classes within the institution (to another Education degree) is possible, but I'd have to reapply, and basically take 70% of the new (general M.Ed) degree. I do like this degree. However, at this point, I've been in school so long I can't take it anymore, but I do want to teach (in an alternative school, granted). Yes, I know I can teach without a degree; at this point I would really rather not simply quit, though. [more inside]
