S E L F C A R E • Self care as a teacher (or anyone!) is the utmost importance. Having hobbies that are distinct from work helps to separate emotions and keep you sane! But when my hobby results in having a dance show on a Monday night during one of the busiest times of year, I wonder if I’ve made a good decision. Does it still count as self care when it results in playing @getkahoot for three days in a row, because I’ve only gotten 12 hours of sleep in 3 days? #teachertired #teachertruth

I don't know what's better... when I get excited when students get older pop culture references or when they get excited they I know older pop culture references haha.

Another one of my awesome students wrote this for her Perfect Poe Paragraph assignment. These kids amaze me every day. #stunned #tooamazing #mykidsrockmyface #charterschoolteacher #texasteacher #iteachhighschool #highschoolenglishteacher #poeismyhomeboy
Happy #humpday ! I’m glad my students were able to learn how to draw electron dot structures for covalent compounds and pick up VSEPR quickly (considering that I spent 1 & 1/2 days on it .

I often think about last year’s classes and what a complete 180 we made by the end of the year. When things seem a little rough and like I’ll never get through to them, I just remember last year. .

@unlimitedinvestmentinquiries shared this amazing post. 
The good thing is as teachers we have the POWER to integrate these skills into instruction now, today, when you put your phone down🙋🏽‍♀️. If you have incorporated these skills into your classroom culture reply “Me!” We would love to hear how! 🗣

There was a malfunction with our fire alert system today and the flashing light stayed on for awhile after the drill. So some of my more "extra" students taped this coat over the light so they could focus. 😂🤣

Who else is fully aboard the stations train? 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🚂 We LOVE stations! They are a great way to engage students using different sources and methods, cover a lot of content in a limited amount of time, and students can make connections across topics. Yesterday in AP Gov students worked on stations related to the First Amendment. We looked at flag burning and Texas v. Johnson, student speech and Tinker v. Des Moines, and the use of hate speech when the Nazi Party marched in Skokie in the 1970s among other topics. We had so much fun designing this activity with some of our colleagues this summer during a grad course on iconic Supreme Court cases at @lakeforestcollege and supported by The Jack Miller Institute.

⛄️🎄Teaching up until the winter break (and especially once we get back!) can be grueling. 24 ELA teachers from across the Instagram world have teamed up together to bring you #24daysofELA - a fresh, new lesson idea each day leading up to winter break!  This is our gift to you.  We hope you’ll follow along with our hashtag!  To start from the beginning, head over to @mudandinkteaching.  To check out yesterday’s idea, head on over to @readingandwritinghaven!  Tomorrow, be sure to check out @elaclassroom! But today, here’s what I’ve got in store for you!

✍️ Grammar is tricky. This✨FREE✨ Christmas-themed grammar activity challenges a student to think critically by selecting the best word that would not otherwise fit in each sentence. In other words, instead of selecting the correct word to use in the sentence, students have to be a bit more careful in their selection by choosing the incorrect term. This grammar worksheet would be a fun addition to an existing writing unit or perhaps used as an activity to assess grammar skills during the month of December or as a fun, new bell-ringer. It's a quick, yet effective way to assess grammar skills. (Link in profile)

Hey y’all! It’s Miss Ola G.! I am a recently hired U.S. & World History teacher from the great state of Maryland, who has a passion for everything, history, social justice, faith, style, and Alabama football. After receiving my undergraduate degree in Secondary Social Studies from UA (Roll Tide!), I’m back home finishing up my MEd in Minority and Urban Education at the University of Maryland. 
________________

So why did I start this Instagram? Well, because I was a mid-year hire (yikes!), I’m nervous as heck. But! More than anything, I’m excited to start this journey and hope to bring y’all along as I become a member of this awesome and supportive teacher community. So on that note,  welcome & let’s go! ❤️

One of my favorite things I have added into my class this year are “Historical Math” problems that we do at the beginning of class. 🤓🚨Nerd Alert🤓 🚨 I recently learned how to use “conditional formatting” in Google Sheets. This allows me to change the color of a box when a correct number is entered. So I give my students a problem and then some clues and watch them brainstorm, collaborative, and try to solve the math problem and then find the historical significance behind the numbers in blue. I’ve pasted a link in my profile so you can try it out for yourself, click “File” > “Make a Copy” to edit

Today has been a day! You can definitely tell winter break is almost here. And genius me made binders due today and tomorrow! 😭 so while I graded 56 binders today alone (I told them they could get it done earlier since last week but only 8 took me up on it) I thought about why I do this. What is the end goal? I want my kids to be organized so they can quickly access information. The last 5 years I’ve given detailed rubrics of everything that should be in their binders: table of contents (because their notes on handouts are their textbook), three sections of notes, assignments & assessments, learning targets filled in and even down to nothing falling out when shaken. It’s fairly quick for me to grade when it’s all nice and in order but when a student doesn’t even use the rings to hold anything except folder paper (swipe to see) and most of the papers were crumpled before I straightened it to at least see what papers they were...well that’s when I just hate all binders and grading them. And then times by 50. 
So as I thought about what the main reason was, I thought about online binder checks I’ve seen others talk about on IG and I’ve concluded that’s my next step next semester. If I ask the right questions looking for the information in the binder then it will also show whether they achieved the goal of accessing information quickly. So it won’t matter if a student prefers all their hw & notes mixed together if that’s what works for them. I prefer it separate but it shouldn’t matter. And I’ll save myself sanity. And I can do more than the one binder check a quarter I’ve been doing this year because there just isn’t any time. 😔 we’ll see how it goes. 
But first I have to finish grading all the things. 
Oh and I just realized I miscalculated points on the quiz I passed back to my pd3 today. I emailed for them to return the quizzes but we’ll see. 
Like I said...it’s been a day. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Getting my life together means a really late night and no time for a run. Also copious amounts of Diet Coke and grilled cheese.

And ya, there's a kid under that blanket. I've seen so much on insta lately about scraping kids off the ceiling in the month of December because elementary school is a crazy place at this time of year. I don't doubt it. Elementary teachers, I see you. I feel you. It's crazy town over here too. There is something in the air at this time of year that makes kids, big and small, go a bit nuts. As best as I can, I'm trying to embrace it ♥️. The energy is wild but also fun. If I don't expect too much and make connections with my students the priority, I walk away feeling pretty good about the day. Blanket hideouts also help. #decemberteacherproblems

So I think it was @writeonwithmissg that posted about taking away flexible seating options that were doing more damage than help to her students, and I’m here to say I know exactly what she means. These chairs may not make it around to next quarter and I’m okay with that. I love flexible seating for the break away from the negative associations a traditional learning environment has, in particular for students especially like mine who have struggled finding success in traditional school settings. With that said, I’m also wise enough to reflect on classroom strategies that just aren’t working-right now- and focus on the many others elements that affect their learning and success in the classroom. Like, “How can I end class each day in a way that addresses what they may have not understood about the lesson/assignment?”. 🍎

Day 61/180 #regram As a teacher with #ocd #anxeity and #depression who teaches, and loves, kids with those and many other #mentalhealth issues, I couldn't agree more that taking care of our mental health is equally as important as taking care of our physical health. Let's #endthestigma around #mentalillness 🙌
One year, the only walkthrough I got was the last day of finals review and I got criticized for not engaging my students in group work. Like, “K.”

I believe that poetry unearths human emotions better than any other type of writing. Yet, knowing this full well, we often do not prioritize it in our curriculum.  What’s holding us back?
•
Fear of sharing our stories? 
Fear of being vulnerable?
Fear of opening up?
•
The thing is, to build a community we need to allow room in our classrooms to be vulnerable, to share our stories, and to find the power in our voices.  Yes, teaching structure and literary devices are needed and essential, but it comes secondary to students finding the power of their voice. This is a poem that a former student of mine wrote, and today it reminded me of what poetry does for our students. It opens worlds for them; poetry gives them answers. #iteachpoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #powerofwords #iloveteaching #iteachhighschool #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #teachersfollowteachers #englishteacher
I believe that poetry unearths human emotions better than any other type of writing. Yet, knowing this full well, we often do not prioritize it in our curriculum. What’s holding us back? • Fear of sharing our stories? Fear of being vulnerable?

9 Weeks Old // Someone slept through the night last night, mainly because we forgot to set our alarms. Plus he’s just cute. •

Today, we brainstormed ideas for "creative" audience engagement.  The rubric asks students to find a way to interact and "build" knowledge with their audience as participants, for the audience to engage with content in a way that would not be possible with words alone. ⁣
.⁣
Students came up with some pretty creative ideas. I'm looking forward to hearing their presentations next week in our "Trade Show of Ideas." Each student will have a booth set-up in the auditorium foyer, sharing their knowledge with 5-6 classmates at a time. ⁣

Tried out a silent discussion in English 10 today, and although it was only semi-silent, I think it went well! It’s amazing what you read on these posters as opposed to hearing verbally. I’m thinking of posting the pictures of our discussion and using it for something further. Any ideas? #secondaryela #iteachhighschool #silentdiscussion #teachersfollowteachers

Y'all, today my patience got TRIED!

Who else has that one class (or more) that is just so dang NEEDY??? Those kiddos that understand the material, but they need you to validate every. single. step. they. take! On each and every problem!

We were reviewing for our test today and I cannot tell you how many times I had kids come up and say, can you just walk me through this whole problem, so I can remember how to do it?
So I remind them of the general concept and help them get started.
They say, oh yeah that's right!
And then proceed to keep me there while they continue the problem, even though they know how to do it now!

Please don't get my wrong, I am here for my kids. I will help them until pigs fly. But I'm also human and I'm allowed to be tired of helping after giving it for the entire morning.

Keep on fighting the good fight, my friends! But also take a breather at lunch, on your prep, when you get home. Cause empty cups can't pour, or something cheesy like that. 💙

I must have been living under a rock because I didn’t know portable hard drives can now come in 4TB and 5TB of storage. So far, I’ve only seen 1TB, 2TB and 3TB portable hard drives at the shops. Isn’t it incredible how fast technology is evolving?

Stultzmas! Stultznukkah! Stultzaa! Stultzidays! Whatever you celebrate, cheers! Today was about appreciating my students for their efforts thus far. I used to order wristbands (see my feature on @doccopteaching ’s blog a couple years ago) to build morale in my classes but this year, I ordered pens with one of my favorite quotes (“If you want to change the world, pick up a pen and write.”) printed on them. ❤️🥰💛💛💛💛 I also coupled it with some passes —they differed between my Senior English and AP Lang classes. For those of you who are curious, I’d say most students appreciate this gesture (which I pair with a mini-speech). There will be those who don’t, but do it for the ones who do care. Build relationships! No extra $? They value the paper passes more 😉

Help your students master the different types of point of view with this digital breakout. In this Escape Room-like game, students are competing in an essay contest, in which the winner of the contest will be exempt from all writing assignments for the rest of the year. But before students can submit their essay discussing a character's point, they have to prove to their teacher that they understand the different types of point of view. They must demonstrate their knowledge through a series of tests to find the codes that will unlock the essay submission form.
.
This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing types of point of view and related terms: narrator, unreliable narrator, tone, voice, first person point of view, second person point of view, third person limited point of view, third person omniscient point of view, and third person objective point of view. This unique activity will require students to think creatively and work collaboratively. {Link in profile}

Is anyone else getting their butt kicked this semester? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Last month I got the incredible opportunity to go to Beijing for 5 days with EF Tours and I hopped on a plane alone to go visit a place on my bucket list. I had the chance to meet some amazing teachers from all over the country! I prepared to lead my first group of students on a trip to Europe in June. And I  FREAKING SAW BEIJING! This history teacher may have burst into tears when she got to the Great Wall! I still can’t believe that I went to China! I absolutely love to travel and that all started in high school when I went with my school to Italy. I think traveling is such a humbling experience.  I cannot wait to share this with my students ✈️ #iteachtoo #iteach #iteachhistory #iteachhighschool #teachersofinstagram #teacher #teacherlife #teachertravels

Teaching up until the winter break (and especially once we get back!) can be grueling.  That’s why 24 ELA teachers from across the Instagram world have teamed up together to bring you #24daysofELA - a fresh, new lesson idea each day leading up to winter break!  This is our gift to you.  We hope you’ll follow along with our hashtag!  Here’s one of my favorite lessons: Bumper Words!
✏️
Put students in groups. In short, they will use some of their vocabulary words along with others they select to create a fun categorization task. After they make the activity, they trade with another group and try to solve by determining which word in each category doesn’t fit and, therefore, should be bumped! It’s a fun and engaging exercise that requires students to think deeply about their words and make connections. No prep or grading required, but lots of learning to be had! You can also play using student bodies by pinning a word to students’ shirts and using them as the game pieces. 🤓🙌🏻 Read more about this and other brain-based vocabulary activities for older students through the link in my profile. 😊☝🏻 To check out 24 Days of ELA lessons from the beginning, head over to @mudandinkteaching.  To check out yesterday’s idea, visit @doccopteaching ... Tomorrow, be sure to check out @theclassroomsparrow 😍

🧩Quilt Review Puzzles 🧩 .
.
If you need to review your kiddos, and want it completely student-centered, all you need to do is create a quilt puzzle.  Just match the term to the definition, but not every term will have a match (aka no end pieces)! I love how excited and engaged the kids are when they work on these, plus it’s a great review💛
