Simply looking to broaden my resources when it comes to organizations that empower the community with the practical tools, knowledge and capacity for action to make sustainable living the norm. These are typically very localized environmental charities - location does not matter as I'm just looking for inspiration.
Recommendations wanted: Math materials for a grade 5 kid, studying fractions and decimals, who doesn't like math. Other interests: Reading, lego, super heroes, history, geography.
Can you point me to journals/magazines/newspapers with a higher reading level? [more inside]
This test is really not that hard but I can't seem to get the answers right. I'm using an app called magoosh to study, but I cant seem to do better on the math questions. It is honestly driving me nuts. I am aiming for a 165 in math but honestly I don't know how I will get there. The questions seem like they're impossible and like no matter what I do I can't get better at it.
Adjunct-level academic, MFA, author, and mother of small children seeks job teaching at a private high school. How hard will it be to get one, and what can I expect? [more inside]
I'm looking for examples from any subject that have made a stat/figure/number come alive. Eg: If the entire history of the earth was compressed into one year, humans would only appear in the final 24 minutes. [more inside]
I'm looking for resources and / or experiences of the role that music, in any form passive or active, can play to aid development in babies and children, from as young an age as possible. I'm especially interested in anything relating this to kids with structural brain disorders, or other neurological conditions diagnosed pre-natally or in the very first years of life. [more inside]
Any suggestions about how I can find people to answer my questions? [more inside]
My kid (6) is having trouble meeting behavioral expectations at her elementary school. At this point very few of the teachers are on her side - she’s annoyed them to the “bitch eating crackers” point (I’ve seen two of them vibrate with suppressed rage when talking to us). What do we do next, and how do we defuse tensions at parent-teacher conference later this month? [more inside]
I am confused, looking at the results of my daughter's pycho-educational assessment. I am particularly confused about the results of what the tester has called "The Developmental Test of Visual Motor Integration." She scored very low. 8th percentile. This led to the tester diagnosing her with Severe Developmental Coordination Disorder. What do these things mean, and a few other questions inside. [more inside]
Please generalize for me about the academics in these fields. Shed some light for me about the people who choose to study these areas. I’m looking for trends and idiosyncrasies, telling details, character traits, motivations, you name it. [more inside]
At the teacher-parent evening last week my son's english teacher brought up this dilemma. She picked a book for the class to read that a little more than half thought was dumb. So she wants to find a book a greater majority will like. I asked if I could offer her some titles and she said 'absolutely' and then got home and realized I, uh, don't quite know which way to jump. I'm seeing her again on Friday but could offer suggestions after that as well. [more inside]
I'm a high school teacher (white, cis, woman) and I want to know the best way to handle microaggressions among students in the classroom. I have looked this issue up, and none of the resources or guides that I have seen seem to factor in the reactions of the marginalized person in the scenario. For example, it seems important to call out microaggressions where a POC is obviously uncomfortable, what about situations where the POC plays along or laughs it off? [more inside]
For retired educators and others who remember past times; I was in elemetary and middle school in the late 80s and first half of the 90s, so hop in your time machines and help me remember what this example of dead tech described inside is called. [more inside]
Wonder if any of you have tips for a young friend fairly early in her career looking into exploring a career in development and learning to code? [more inside]
Asking for my teenager: Can you help my daughter come up with a subject for a large (>80 h) high school assignment? She's an ambitious and smart kid, and her special area of interest is the Middle East. [more inside]
We need advice on handling a miscarriage while my wife is a college student. [more inside]
I really dig watching, and learning about, obscure handcrafts and industries from days of yore. In fact, I think I want to spend much of this lazy Sunday watching such things on YouTube. Got any to recommend? (Inspired by today's FPP about bell tuning.) [more inside]
I am looking for a source that has dinosaur feet size. [more inside]
