Blog Post #10

Adventures in Pencil Integration
I'm a Papermate. I'm a Ticonderoga.
The cartoon by John T. Spencer is so true. What I concluded after viewing the cartoon is that you get what you pay for. This does not only go for pens, but for things such as laptops, TV’s, or anything for that matter. Like the cartoon says, if you buy the cheap version of a product it will break faster, because it is made of a cheaper material and you will spend more money if you keep replacing the item.

Why Were Your Kids Playing?

No Games SignThe blog post I read by Mr. Spencer was titled “Why were your kids playing games?” This was a good post to read, because Mr. Spencer is letting his students play games in the classroom. The games he chooses go along with the lessons he is teaching. The principle got on to Mr. Spencer once before for playing hangman in the classroom. The principle calls Mr. Spencer into his office and tells him he said “No Games.” The principle goes on and says that even surgeons and soldiers play games to help them remember things. Mr. Spencer says games are great ways to get students to remember content that is being taught. I could not agree more that games get students involved and more important, they are learning while doing something other than sitting through a boring lecture.

Don`t Teach Your Kids This Stuff. Please?

Don`t teach your kids this stuff. Please? By Scott McLeod had me going until I got to the end. It was a humorous post, because he says he doesn`t want other people to teach young people about technology, because he is teaching his students all these things. With society being centered on technology, it is important to know some things about it. His students are a step ahead of others because teachers are scared to teach students about technology. In my opinion technology makes learning fun.

  1. Hi Ashley,

    I really enjoyed reading your post. I think there few grammar miscues in your post but I suggest you write your opinions more on Mr. Spencer and Mr. Scott McLeod parts. Additionally, you had to read one more Mr. Spencer's posts on his blog except "Why Were Your Kids Playing?". Anyway, your post is reflective and you could summarize posts well. Good job! Keep up your good work!
