What's Up Part 1
There is a lot of talk right now about standardized testing. My students just finished round one and I am relieved, it is a stressful time for all of us! Instead of complaining on social media (like I have seen endlessly in the past few weeks), I decided I would keep it more upbeat. No one likes a complainer! One of my favorite bloggers (from right here in Colorado- Teaching with a Mountain View) recently shared a standardized testing "bloopers" post where people could write their funny/horror stories from testing. here to see the full post on Facebook and read the funny stories people wrote. I am still new to the teaching world (2nd year) so I have yet to have a funny thing happen during testing...and with all the paperwork that comes with "funny stories" I think I am OK not yet being able to contribute!
