The Rise of the Helicopter Teacher


The Rise of the Helicopter Teacher

From the Chronicle of Higher Education

A week before the first paper was due, a young woman in my class raised her hand and asked where the rubric was.

Shamefaced and stuttering, I had to admit that I had no idea what a rubric was. She helpfully explained that this was a set of guidelines explaining what I expected them to write, how I expected them to write it, and how each aspect of the paper would be evaluated. A set of boxes that students could check off to guarantee that they had met my expectations. For all intents and purposes, in other words, an outline for the paper.

Oh, I replied. No, I continued, there would be no rubric. And as I saw the crestfallen faces in front of me I realized what these students expected me to be: a helicopter teacher.

We have all seen (and made fun of) helicopter parents. They hover. They are endlessly accommodating. They put up with rude, spoiled behavior from their children without offering much by way of discipline or punishment.

Over the last generation or so, teaching has come to resemble parenting in several ways, swayed by the currents of hyper-parenting that come from the larger culture and responding to the dictates that come down to us from higher up our institutional food chains.

Perhaps it started with the now well-documented phenomenon of grade inflation. Reluctant to make students feel bad, we started giving A’s for effort, not necessarily for accomplishment or mastery. When I was in graduate school I overheard one of my comrades arguing with a student over a grade. He’d gotten a B on the midterm: “But a B … that’s like a C!” the student yelled in utter desperation. The student, it turns out, has been proved largely correct. The children at America’s colleges and universities may not all be above average, but their grades usually are . . .

Good article: There's no app for good teaching



8 ways to think about tech in ways that actually improve the classroom.

Bringing technology into the classroom often winds up an awkward mash-up between the laws of Murphy and Moore: What can go wrong, will — only faster.
It’s a multi-headed challenge: Teachers need to connect with classrooms filled with distinct individuals. We all want learning to be intrinsically motivated and mindful, yet we want kids to test well and respond to bribes (er, extrinsic rewards). Meanwhile, there’s a multi-billion-dollar industry, in the US alone, hoping to sell apps and tech tools to school boards.
There’s no app for that.

Genius Hour In The Classroom: 6 Principles Of Genius Hour

Genius Hour In The Classroom: 6 Principles Of Genius Hour
by Terry Heick
From TeachTalk.com

Genius Hour in the classroom is an approach to learning built around student curiosity, self-directed learning, and passion-based work.

In traditional learning, teachers map out academic standards, and plan units and lessons based around those standards. In Genius Hour, students are in control, choosing what they study, how they study it, and what they do, produce, or create as a result. As a learning model, it promotes inquiry, research, creativity, and self-directed learning.

Genius Hour is most notably associated with Google, where employees are able to spend up to 20% of their time working on projects they’re interested in and passionate about. The study and work is motivated intrinsically, not extrinsically. The big idea for Google is that employees motivated by curiosity and passion will be happier, more creative,  and more productive, which will benefit the company in terms of both morale, “off-Genius” productivity, and “on-Genius” performance.

Former FBI agent Tom Locke gives stirring 9/11 Chapel speech at Episcopal Academy


 — Thomas B. Locke, who oversaw the 9/11 investigation from FBI headquarters back in 2001, delivered a heartfelt speech and presented the school with a truly special gift — a flag that flew on the USS Cole and at Ground Zero — during the Episcopal Academy’s annual Chapel recently.
The father of current Episcopal Head of School T.J. Locke, Tom Locke enjoyed a distinguished 32-year career as a special agent with the FBI, working for the bureau from right after his graduation from Catholic University in 1970 until he retired in 2002.Prior to giving his Chapel speech, Locke was introduced by his son, T.J., who called his dad “an American hero” and was emotional as he recalled his inability to reach his father in Washington, D.C., for large stretches of time on Sept. 11, 2001.
Tom Locke mesmerized the Chapel audience, displaying a rare ability to deliver positive messages based on the one of worst days in U.S. history.

#GoBucs - Football: Berkeley Prep 13, Springstead 0


Congrats to the Bucs who slugged out a tough win against Springstead on Friday night!

Go Bucs!

Football: Berkeley Prep 13, Springstead 0


TAMPA — After enduring a lighting delay and a constant downpour, the Eagles and Bucs slugged it out. With their passing game out the window due to the conditions, the Bucs opened in an "L" formation with three backs in the backfield and pounded away at Springstead, primarily with sophomore Gordon Stetson. The Buc defense played lights out, keeping Springstead off the scoreboard and in third-and-long situations.

Key drive: After Springstead's Robert Holdway took the opening kickoff 70 yards, the Bucs forced a turnover on downs and took their opening drive 79 yards on 14 plays in for a touchdown. Stetson was critical, hitting spin moves along the way, but his 17-yard touchdown run was aided by a gaping hole in the middle of the Eagle defense.
Play of the game: In the fourth quarter, Stetson blasted through the line and raced to a 30-yard TD.
Stars of the game: Stetson had 18 carries for 103 yards in the first half. The Berkeley defense held the Eagles to 107 yards of offense and did not allow a third-down conversion until Springstead's final drive
Stat of the game: After trying some nifty spin moves in the first half, Stetson ground the Springstead defense down with 31 carries for 196 yards and two TDs.
Final word: "We have one of the best defenses in the county. We knew they were going to run out the ball and we stopped them, especially on third down." — Stetson

The three-stage strategy to improve employee morale


 The three-stage strategy to improve employee morale
The recession continues to impact many industries, with restructurings and layoffs creating concern among employees. When profits are threatened, companies often view layoffs as a direct way to reduce costs, however, when efforts are focused solely on managing job cuts, remaining workers are left in limbo. Managers are also likely to become more directive, communicating decisions rather than involving their teams in decision-making processes.
Organizations don’t always recognize the impact this behavior has on remaining employees or anticipate the long-term negative effects. This creates a potential time bomb.  Disenchanted employees will be the first to go when the economy starts to improve leaving the organization without the workers it was most keen to retain.

Rarely does a company allocate sufficient budget to deal with employee morale issues. Yet there are tangible, cost-effective steps for organizations to take in moving employees away from feeling like victims or suffering “survivor syndrome.” These steps help employees feel more in control of their environment, so they are better able to understand why things have changed and how they can positively impact outcomes. 
The following three-stage approach will keep an organization on track, improve morale and promote productivity following workplace change. The steps help move employees up from the bottom of the change curve, where they feel disappointment and anger to feeling optimistic and happy. The important principle here is to maintain momentum, moving quickly to create a sense of urgency and progress.

The three-stage approach to lift employee morale

  • STAGE ONE - Listen: Get feedback and ideas.
  • STAGE TWO - Communicate: with solutions to business issues and employee concerns.
  • STAGE THREE - Recognize: business and employee accomplishments and successes.

STAGE ONE - Listen to employees

Relationships between the organization and employees are fractured following a period of upheaval. And this situation won’t improve on its own. Companies must take a proactive approach, beginning with listening to employees and getting their concerns out into the open. Leaders must acknowledge employee issues and be motivated to make improvements.
Of vital importance is publicizing that employee feedback is encouraged and necessary and that the organization values their ideas. Decide the messages behind the listening activities deployed, and use them consistently, for example:
  • We know staff morale is low and want your help.
  • We need to save money and are looking for ideas on how to best achieve that.
  • We want to add to our top line and need your feedback on opportunities to look at.
Who does what in Stage One?
Leaders should be visible, approachable and well-briefed, so that they can field employee questions. Interaction should be face-to-face whenever possible. Key messages should also be developed and be used as part of regular, ongoing internal communication activities.

BPS Football defeats Lakeland Christian - Go Bucs!




The Berkeley Preparatory School Varsity Football team took the short road trip to Lakeland to take on District foe Lakeland Christian. The Bucs were extremely efficient behind an explosive and timely offense, a "bend but don't break" swarming defense and technical special teams.  

Until the waning seconds of the game, the fireworks seemed to continue to go off. It was a crucial and also emotional win on the road for the Bucs, now 4-0 on the year and 1-0 in District play.  

Thanks to all who came out to show support on the road on a school night. The team return home next week to take on Springstead.

Result: Won 33-28

"Without a keyboard" - interesting thoughts from Seth Godin!

Seth Godin has a challenging and interesting post about the use of keyboard-less (i.e. iPads) technology...what do you think?



Without a keyboard

When the masses only connect to the net without a keyboard, who will be left to change the world?
It is possible but unlikely that someone will write a great novel on a tablet.
You can't create the spreadsheet that changes an industry on a smart phone.
And professional programmers don't sit down to do their programming with a swipe.
Many people are quietly giving away one of the most powerful tools ever created—the ability to craft and spread revolutionary ideas. Coding, writing, persuading, calculating—they still matter. Yes, of course the media that's being created on the spot, the live, the intuitive, this matters. But that doesn't mean we don't desperately need people like you to dig in and type.
The trendy thing to do is say that whatever technology and the masses want must be a good thing. But sometimes, what technology wants isn't what's going to change our lives for the better.
The public square is more public than ever, but minds are rarely changed in 140 character bursts and by selfies.

Why is online learning important? From Dr. T.J. Locke from Episcopal Academy (PA)



Why is online learning important?

Read this excellent post by Dr. T.J. Locke of The Episcopal Academy (where I taught from 2000-2004) about the importance of online learning!

Check out his whole blog entry HERE

I do not feel the need to pit online learning against “bricks and mortar” learning. And for us at EA, it does need to be an either/or situation. It is my hope that all of our courses are academically rigorous, interesting, and inspiring-no matter the format. It does seem to me the field of online learning is becoming increasingly relevant and that we have a responsibility to gain some experience.Consider these three statistics from the Sloan Consortium study.
  • Over 7.1 million students were taking at least one online course during the fall 2012 term, an increase of 411,000 students over the previous year.
  • Thirty-three percent of higher education students now take at least one course online.
  • Ninety percent of academic leaders believe that it is likely or very likely that a majority of all higher education students will be taking at least one online course in five year’s time.
If our students have not already experienced online learning, it seems obvious they will soon. As a part of our college preparatory mentality, we need to be helping students develop the skills needed to succeed and thrive in this learning environment. Taking an online course is not easy. It takes persistence and diligence. I like the idea that EA will be there to help challenge and nurture our students side by side, as they enter this new world.

5 ways to help your kid have a great school year (Hint: don’t help him)


5 ways to help your kid have a great school year (Hint: don’t help him)
From The Washington Post

By Adrienne Wichard-Edds August 28



I’m about to fling my baby bird out of the nest. My older son, Ethan, is headed to the wilds of middle school right after Labor Day, and I’m remembering a stark thought that I had in a pang of early motherhood. Shortly after Ethan turned a year old and was experimenting with walking away from me, I realized: If I do this parenting thing right, one day he won’t need me anymore. Then: Maybe I should screw it up.
“The problem is that we do eventually need to fling them out of the nest, but often they don’t have the skills to fly,” empathizes Jessica Lahey, a New Hampshire-based high school teacher and author of the upcoming book “The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed.”
“It’s important that we get our kids to the point where they don’t need us at all, and that’s really counter-intuitive,” she says. “Those moment-to-moment things that you do to save your kids—like when they’ve forgotten their homework on the table and you run it up to school for them? That’s going to end up biting them in the butt down the road.”
Sure, Lahey says, it might feel like you’re being a great parent in the moment, but in the end, it probably makes you feel better rather than helping your kid. “It doesn’t allow them to say, ‘Oh, crap. I forgot that homework on the table. What kind of system can I put in place so that doesn’t happen again?’ It makes it so that they don’t have to put a system in place.”
Lahey, who has two boys of her own (Finn, 10 and Ben, 15) says that the inspiration for her book came from the realization that that it was harder for her to teach the heavily overparented kids. In fact, she realized parentswere getting in the way of their kids’ own learning. Lahey says this revelation informed her teaching style, but “it also forced me to look at my own parenting and say how am I complicit in this, too?”
So, for example, when her older son forgot to follow through on a dog-walking job that he’d promised a neighbor, Lahey resisted the temptation to step in and help him. “The dog peed and pooped all over the house. He was begging me to call the neighbor and explain and I said no, this is your responsibility.” Instead, he went through the process of regaining his neighbor’s trust, learned how to set reminders and use a calendar.

Six Ways to Boost Morale That Won't Cost You a Dime


Six Ways to Boost Morale That Won't Cost You a Dime

From Forbes Magazine

We think we know what our employees want.
In order to keep employees happy, we need to offer competitive wages and benefits. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. A recent study by Accenture reports that a whopping 43% of the workforce cites ‘lack of recognition’ as the reason for their unhappiness. Don’t let your stellar team become part of this statistic!
Read between the lines – it’s more than recognition – employees want to feel valued by their leaders. We all know about the service profit chain: happy employees = productive employees = increased sales. They spend the majority of their week in the office. It is their home away from home so make the office environment feel that way. Organizations all over the globe have implemented innovative ways to boost morale.  Google employees enjoy famous perks such as game rooms and on-site cafes. Other organizations offer heath care centers and child care services within the walls of their buildings. These powerful perks keep employees happy and attrition rates low.

Prayers for 9-11




For the Human Family
O God, you made us in your own image: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne. Amen.

For Peace
Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

For Social Justice
Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart [and especially the hearts of the people of this land], that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


For those in the Armed Forces of our Country
Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.

For Heroic Service
O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


A Prayer attributed to St. Francis
Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.


Life is short,
And we do not have much time
To gladden the hearts of those
Who travel the way with us.
So be swift to be kind,
And as we go,
May the blessing, the love,
the joy, and the peace
Of the Holy One
Who is in the midst of us
Be among you and remain with you
Always.

Amen

Berkeley Prep swimmers aim for golden finish to high school careers

By Steve Lee, Times Correspondent


TAMPA — Berkeley Prep's return to last weekend's City Relays — and subsequent victory after an eight-year absence — marked the beginning of what five seniors destined for lifelong friendships hope to be a memorable end to their high school careers.

From left, Berkeley Prep coach Kevin Rosepapa has coached seniors Harrison Keane, Keating Mosher, Delton Gunn, Graham Olney and Ryan Franzese for several years.

From left, Berkeley Prep coach Kevin Rosepapa has coached seniors Harrison Keane, Keating Mosher, Delton Gunn, Graham Olney and Ryan Franzese for several years.

"Ideally, as seniors we'd all like that top five finish at states and to get on the podium," said Graham Olney, whose eighth-place finish at state in the 100-yard backstroke as a sophomore is the best of the bunch. "That's something we've been looking forward to since we were kids."
Olney, Ryan Franzese, Delton Gunn and Keating Mosher have been swimming together at Berkeley Prep since the third grade when Olney jokingly said that their parents did not want to pick them up too early after school.
"We're all just the biggest group of goofballs," Olney said.
