A great project!!

"Imagine if you can, a weathered old cowboy out on the Great Western Cattle Trail around 1860, driving Texas long horn beef out toward Dodge City, Kansas. His huge Texas fedora is pulled low over his eyes to keep out the dust the cattle kicked up. The prairie is without fence for as far as he can see. The old west is still alive."

Follow that same trail today with Elderbob. The project begins on Labor Day. You can post comments and questions.

Teacher Rules and improving learning and teaching

This is an insightful article that suggests your creating your rules for you as a teacher can improve teaching and learning for your students.

I think the rules she suggests are valuable and can change the entire sense of community and learning in a classroom.
