Sometimes it's better to not say anything at all...

I have a long post written about how pointless and annoying our curriculum retreat was this year (in past years, it has actually been quite productive and re-invigorating). But sometimes, if you have nothing nice to say, it's better to say nothing (or very little). I should be on the train to Inwood & various Bronx neighborhoods to check out possible places to move, but instead I'm sitting here trying to do my schoolwork quickly enough to still have time for that trip. I hate having my time wasted. And I hate workshops that end without any kind of feedback/evaluation process.

We are studying climate and climate change in the seventh grade, and wrapping up bonding in the sixth. It's on to solutions, mixtures, phases of matter, acids & bases, chemical reactions, etc. I'm in the middle of planning about a dozen lessons for each grade. The climate change unit requires a lot of work because I want them to look at real data and learn strategies for interpreting new graphs, tables, and diagrams without being intimidated. Also, it seems hard to find rigorous information on climate change that is written at an appropriate reading level, so I end up cobbling together a lot of different sources of information. The textbooks we have barely skim the surface of this topic.

I also need to:
  • do laundry
  • eat (it's possible to forget)
  • study for Turkish class - this can be done on the long train ride to Inwood
  • figure out how/where to get my shots for India
  • grade a whole lot of stuff
  • get this all done early enough to maybe have a little free time to spend with someone I really like who has been out of town...

Huh? You're moving to the Bronx? Aren't you moving to Turkey?

You mentioned you are studying Climate change.....Yesterday, while idly flicking through the tv channels, former President Clinton came up on C-SPAN, giving a speech to the graduates of Tulane U., and he told them, "over the past ten years, climatic changes have wrought davestating hurricanes and tsunamis........" Go figure. What I wonder is, how many of those students knew climate change does not cause tsunamis ?

In addition, climate change has not been linked to more numerous or stronger hurricanes.

Hurricane frequency & strength are cyclical. While Tsunamis are caused by earthquakes.

However, to ignore that climate change is occurring is just plain ignorant.

But she needs to find an apartment for her exchange teacher...
Anyway, Inwood is a little pricey these days, plus its really hard to get over to the East side of the Bronx from Inwood. I know because I'm moving to Riverdale and my commute will not be fun next year, if I don't find a new teaching job. A lot of teachers I know live in Parkchester, Baychester and the area around Co-Op City (you could also try Pelham Bay...I think that neighborhood is near the 4 or the 5). Those neighborhoods are more convenient to the 6 train.

In case you haven't seen the May issue of Technology & Learning there is a brief write up about the site You can download a climate model which runs on your computer and adds to the data helping scientists predict atmospheric changes.
