Classroom Management. Whether you are looking to control a rowdy class, capture the heart of a disrespectful student, or encourage kids to turn in their homework on time, effective classroom management is an ever-moving target. I disregarded the stupid reward/punishment systems but I like that they compiled all these links about CR MGT

theatlantic: Why Teachers Secretly Hate Grading Papers No matter how hard you try, you realize there’s a good chance you’re grading some students more harshly than they deserve, and giving others more credit than they deserve. This doesn’t have anything to do with favoritism (a whole other problem), but with human error and weakness. Your temperament and disposition change over the hours or days you spend grading an assignment. In fact, your frame of mind can change in moments for any number of reasons: Five weak essays in a row can put you in a foul mood; fatigue can set in; a too-hot or too-noisy room can set your nerves on edge. Maybe you’re suddenly reminded that you have only 48 hours left to finish clearing out your deceased parent’s apartment. How can any teacher be confident that his or her assessment of student work is always fair and accurate in the face of such vagaries? An essay that earns a B+ at one moment might earn a B- the next day. It shouldn’t be that way, but any honest teacher will admit it’s true. Read more. [Image: Michael 1952/Reuters]

Almost instantly after Colonel John Henry Moore uttered the challenge “Come and take it”, it became a popular slogan used in the Texas Revolution. Not only was it popular slogan back then, but the flag, originally fashioned out of a wedding dress, featuring a black star, canon, and the daring motto still represents Texas’ independent spirit today! http://www.texasindependencerelay.com/texas-independence-history/

In a few designs, the flag signified the desire for reconciliation with Mexico and a return to government based on the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Most of the flags, however, represented the Texan's desire for total independence from Mexico, and their willingness to fight and die for that cause. Read more...
