Kathleen Zinski replied to Renee's discussion The Leader in Me in the group Somers Point Teachers

Kathleen Zinski replied to Renee's discussion 212 degrees in the group Somers Point Teachers
"When you're running a race and you think you've spent your last ounce of energy, you can dig deeper and get more and go further and faster than you ever knew. 212 degrees reminds us that we have more resources than we realize and tapping…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Renee's discussion The Leader in Me in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Obviously I hit the wrong button, because I'm never that brief. I'll try again: I don't think banners and sayings impact students as much as teachers and administrators who practice what they preach. How many of us truly try to…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys: Chapters 17, 19, 20 in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Chapter 19: It totally seems that girls are being punished! What's so great about having higher male to female enrollment at the university level? If the boys don't make it, they'll learn to. Why were these schools coddling the boys…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys: Chapters 17, 19, 20 in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Chapt. 17 BTW, what happened to 18? If it's just the boys who need help, why did Octavius have a 14 year old girlfriend that got pregnant? Positive role models don't exist for many of our young women too, who will be accepted by their…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys Chapter 16 Smart Boys Who Get Bad Grades in the group Somers Point Teachers
"At some point in time boys do need to write legibly, collaborate well in groups, and be organized. At what grade should this be an issue? Some expectations are legitimate and I don't think we should "look past poor work habits...to…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys Chapter 15 Notes from the Front: Project Earthquake in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I have no objections, but I'm sure many parents would. "Why do just the African American males get the pep talk?" They might also object to the technique, since it is an "in your face" confrontation. But why not show them…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble With Boys Chapter 14 Single-Sex Schooling in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Gee, it all boils down to "Good teaching is good teaching?" That implies that if our students aren't succeeding it's our fault, and I beg to differ, Peg. The desire to learn is extremely important. And the freedom to express that…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble with Boys Chapter 13: [Video] Games Boys Play in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I thought most of the information in this chapter was inconclusive. Small group experiments were conducted, isolated cases were presensted, and there was a lot of opinion expressed, but little research-based results. Computers are here to stay and…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble with Boys Chapter 9 Notes from the Front: The Wilmette Solution in the group Somers Point Teachers
"Well,the Wilmette solution seems perfectly logical at this point, doesn't it? However, I along with the "data-hungry parents of Wilmette," would like to see the results of their standardized tests. The changes they made, this…"

"All the experts seem to agree-----kids need recess and boys need roughhousing. I believe them. I'm not sure the Columbine shootings are what brought on zero-tolerance of aggressive behavior, though. The fact that we live in a litigious society…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble with Boys Chapter 6 Kindergarten; the New First Grade in the group Somers Point Teachers
"It should be called "The Fit Our Mold Grade" and I guess we must reassess the work we're assigning if it borders on being developmentally inappropriate for many kids. Tyre quoted Costello as saying too few allowances are made for…"

Kathleen Zinski replied to Lisa Litz-Neavear's discussion The Trouble with Boys Chapter 5: Notes from the Front; Fixing the School, Not the Boy in the group Somers Point Teachers
"I think Horn is right on. The fact that all 50 of her referrals were boys isn't incredible, but I guess that's because they were the blatant "problems." Age appropriate settings are needed, as I know girls need to move around…"
