"Thank you Sue for sharing this.  I am excited to try it with my third graders and I especially look forward to the application of "once it is posted on the internet it is posted" and you can't take it back.  But I love the…"

"I know a teacher who used pizza boxes. Another teacher took pipe cleaners and made handles and then large oaktag folded in half to make the sides, and made little "briefcases for their work" -- the two might even be combined!"

"You can do all of the presentations you want to, but I have learned first hand that you have to have the teachers practice giving the test and analyzing the test. I suggest showing one of the training videos (K-3 and 4-6 come with the kits) to the…"

Ireen's DRA 2 question

Ireen sent a private message to members of our group, but I was not sure where to respond. The link with my email led back to this group's main page but I don't see a DRA discussion here. Forgive me if this belongs elsewhere.Here's the question she posed: "I'm Ireen and I am a reading teacher for a elementary school. Does anyone have any powerpoints showing how to teach teach teachers how to administer the DRA 2. Our district just purchased the materials and wants the reading department to do…See More

About Me
I wear quite a few hats, including accidental techie (I really identified with Jared, from the "Pretender" series). I'm fond of dragons, calligraphy, sci-fi, lobster, and home-made sushi when my family and I vacation in Maine, our favorite place to be.

Hey Sue,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at

Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?

Hi Sue. I was wondering if you have students or educator friends who would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. You can view contest details at Please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks, Sue. My Twitter is stinsol. It sounds like your job is similar to mine. Were you ever a classroom teacher? My neice lives in Bloomsburg. Her husband works in IT at the college. In some ways we miss PA but not in the winter. Lorraine

Hi Sue,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!

Sue, thanks for the add. It gave me a chance to check out your blog. I gave it a quick gander and enjoyed what I saw, especially the powerpoint\blog article! Keep up the great work. Oh and let's get this guide rolling. Something like this could have a huge impact not only on the teachers wanting to use it, but on the school boards that are fearing the transition.
