In case I haven't told you like 400 times, here's one of my YouTube Channels



Tom for President Feat. @tomrichey // EDUCATION IN EDUCATION SHOW

A while back I got the chance to talk to Tom Richey. 

You get to Michael J. Fox back to a simpler time when the Warriors hadn't lost the NBA Finals and Donald Trump was still maybe just an elaborate SNL skit. 

Check out this fine fellow you is killin it in the YouTube History arena. Make sure you check out his channel and follow him on Twitter like you're picking up falling money. 


The Pythagorean Theorem Lesson Package // Google Forms

I've got a lesson pack for anyone wanting to learn/teach the Pythagorean Theorem. 

Here's the link to the Google Form

Please make sure you just make a copy of it, and then edit your copy. 

If not, you'll be having your students fill it out and other will be able to see their scores. 

Why do I care about this thing you've made?

Well, you beautiful educator you, you would assign this to your students (the fill-out-a-form view, not the teacher view I linked above), and they would all work on it on their own. 

What makes it special is that I have differentiated it to go to a different page based off their answer. 

So if a student gets this question wrong:

Then it goes to a different page that gives them further reinforcement of what a hypotenuse is, then they're redirected to a two-question assessment. 

If they get that original question correct, they go straight to the quiz. 

So it differentiates based on the student's success. 

It also scores the students automatically based on their answers.

You, as the teacher, will be able to see every single student's ability and comfort level with the Pythag of all Theorems. 

Here's another video on it, for fun.

Just in case that wasn't enough Pythagoras to quench your thirst. 

PS That stunning dude in the preview of the form is by buddy Brakebill. He's a professional male model. You can change that if you'd like, but why would you make the form less gorgeous? 

Teacher/Student Rap

Several years ago a student (who actually raps) and I (who does not rap) made a little rap video after a tutoring session. 

It's a number one hit that never got any play. 

click for every other second of rehearsal/filming. We would've done it to where Tyler was even partially on beat, however, that would've taken years. for the red shirt guy and
