While you are there you might want to check out other posts he has. It is a good website with ideas that can help new and experienced teachers (and administrators). I may well check into his book, The Dream Classroom.

A WorkingClassroom Management List
- Top Ten Classroom Management Rules from Lesson Plans Inc This is a very good place to start as a refresher/review. It hits many of the main points. http://www.lessonplansinc.com/classroom_management_strategies.php
- Teacher Checklist for Classroom Behavior Management from Dr. Mac This list is a good review and let's you know where you stand. Not all points are as important as others but it is a good review list for new and experienced teachers. http://www.behavioradvisor.com/BehManCheckList.html
- Two mega lists on Classroom and Behavior Management tTis s almost like cheating but here are two really big lists. These are for those who want to choose their their own resources. I plan to go through these more thoroughly and pick out a few key ones to add to my list. Have at these - they demonstrate how much is out there if we look for it. Picking relevant ones is the key.
Classroom Behavior Management Strategies by Dr. Mac (you lucky dog!) http://www.behavioradvisor.com/oldindex.html
The Really Big List of Behavior Management Resources http://drwilliampmartin.tripod.com/classm.html
These are good places to start. I will end by saying I continue to see and believe that good classroom management is a major, major key to successful learning and teaching.

Once I clarify my thinking and purpose for question 1, I likely will get a better handle on what the learner/readers need. I did get my blog set up and styled some. Generally it is okay (for a beginner). I will continue to see what changes I might want to make. The good news is it is all doable and this short class will get me started in the right direction. Thanks for offering this Stephanie.

I guess starrting this blog is sort of putting up or shutting up for me. I wantto model and use technology in a meaningful way to help improve learning and teachng at Timberline. Lately I have not been as involved with technology as I would like. Taking this 7 Day Blogging course with Stephanie Sandifer will help push me forward. This is Sunday night - the day before "Class" starts. I have set up this blog on Blogger.com and I am getting ready to roll.
