"Teachers like yourself next year. What's your plan based off of this law? Are you going to change anything that you've done in years past? At this point in time, I will say I'm personally not changing anything. I plan to teach the truth. Truth based on facts, those facts that are found in primary source documents. Those are things that you that cannot be disputed. Those are things that cannot be changed. It's not my opinion. It is what it is, as the students would say. That is, That is what I plan to do At this point in time I've not heard from T e a as to how the peaks are going to be changed or what changes are to be expected in the classroom. But at this point in my mind as I'm getting ready to plan for the upcoming school year, I will continue to teach the truth to my students. This reminds me a great deal of a teacher named Scopes from a century ago. Let's do a little history lesson here. Tell people about Mr Scopes and his efforts to teach evolution. Yes, well, Mr Scopes in the 19 twenties, um Taught biology and he taught that there was this thing called evolution and not that and he was teaching in the Bible belt. So you know it was the idea that That people came about through evolution and not just from Adam and Eve and he was censured and brought to trial. And Clarence Darrow, who was, um, who famously Is a famous attorney attorney, um came came to his defense. And then there was this big scope trial. They also call it the monkey trial. For those of you want to look that up? And are you prepared for the possibility that we could see one of those or something like that over this? Is it possible there is a possibility. Um, I'm part of and I have been participating with this and education project and I know that nationally, there are teachers who say that they're going to stand up for the truth. We are going to to stand up for the truth. And continue to teach the facts about American history. Teaching American history is hard in some cases because there are some hard truths that this country has gone through. But the thing is, we also teach the triumph of the coming over of the and overcoming of those hard truths, especially things like slavery discrimination. It will be very intriguing to see what the Texas Education Agency what Advice They offer, uh to teachers like yourself, and I'm sure you're looking forward to reading that, although it sounds like depending on what they have to say, you may just decide No. Well it my decision. If I if it's like a no would be I'm going to continue to tie. What I'm teaching two primary source documents to tell the whole history the whole history of the diversity of this country. Um, I'm not doing it out of defiance. I'm doing it to educate my students there. The future leaders if they don't know this background Then how can we make sure that such things are not repeated? Nelda Williamson has worked in the Houston Independent School district for 40 years. She's a social studies teacher at the young Women's College Preparatory Academy. Thank you so much for joining us.

She was one of 50 arrested in that scheme, which authorities say undeserving kids were admitted to top universities with bogus athletic credentials and fake test scores. Williams, who administered the college entrance exams at the school where she worked, was accused of taking bribes from the Adminis admissions consultant at the center of this scam, Rick Singer that in exchange for allowing somebody else to take tests for the kids of

This is in the rate. Beyond the limit that was set by the Legislature under law that voters would have to have say so first. And they did it. They how they did it was they lowered property taxes slightly. What were we saying here? There's a very small decrease, but it's effectively the same tax rate as the prior year. Why that amounts to a tax increase is because values are increasing. See, that's how they always trying to confuse us by telling you what we actually kind of what we lowered your tax rate. Yeah, but my sis Mike by home value went up by 6% so effectively raised higher property values across the board means a bigger deal. And let's not forget this was the city of Houston.

Everybody's get kind of like, Oh, hey, you know, we're setting all these records the first few days of early voting here in Texas. What is that? Does that mean that a lot of Democrats are showing up to vote? Who does this mean? We're gonna have a much higher than normal voter turnout. He's well, here's what he said about that I was on the phone with a high ranking member of the Legislature earlier today, just getting some information. About what they saw going on in Texas. Aah! And what they observed was that a lot of voters are showing up to vote. And turning in their mail in ballot that they never filled out. Ah, they wanted to go vote in person, so that ballot that was never filled out is supposed to be destroyed. And then they go vote in person. So what this what this lawmaker surmised, was that they asked for the mail in ballot. Kind of is an insurance policy in case perhaps, cove in 19 got worse. Or maybe they got sick. And with President Trump expressing concerns about mail in ballots, not making it they decide to go vote in person. And, as we know nationwide up to 5% of mail in ballots never actually convert to vote because they get lost in the mail. They're not filled out properly or what have you And as it turns out, Of course, you know, the early voting is kind subsided and he thinks that at the end of the day will end up with a fairly normal amount of people voting. They just kind of rush to get out there early. I voted yesterday, and I only had 10 people in front of me in line and it was at Rice University and at any time there maybe about 10 or 15 people, their distance, of course, and it was outdoors on the concourse of the stadium. And you pointed out very smooth, something brilliant as usual. Our most brilliant comments are off here thanks earlier this morning about hate if Texas were really in play Away.

Also highlight practical uses clipboard that increase student's ability to communicate collaborate the critically and be created. So without further ado, let's collaborate, communicate and educate with the best educators in the world right here on Flip Board Edu podcast. Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to the show today I'm GonNa, talk to you about how I got started with Flip Board. I got started with Flip Board through an amazing teacher I actually stolen. This is really how I got started I'm going to tell you the story apostolate it was a great story so I was. Getting Ready to go to a Science Department Meden I just got a job in for being is D- to coach basketball and to teach aquatic CISE was a great job for me because I got a chance to work with Hall of fame coach Righty Courtney, and I was very excited I was going to have a new talent pool. Come from Houston Independent School district. I was really looking forward to a just a another avenue in my career and I was put on an amazing science teen the students that I were used to. Come from different socio economic backgrounds. So the students that and for being could basically afforded device. Mrs Win devices were new and They were trying to figure out what works best and. So. I was always on a look off new things specifically and the back of my mind. One thing that I really was always on the lookout for was a tool that can showcase what I was doing in the classroom. While my students are learning wanted a big problems at that particular time was when administrative came and did a walk through in my classroom, they really couldn't see what the students were learning. There was really no visual way for me to show that the students were engaged in what I was doing a lot of times when they did walk into. The classroom which is really look like the kids weren't paying attention I wasn't teaching the students were just owner devices, and if a an administrator had not been you know schooled on how to evaluate on my like that you can end up with a poor evaluation. So I was did without leading the back of my mind I'd always had an idea something that I actually wanted anyway. So Kim back to my story Lisa feuer was teaching chemistry. She was my lunch partner. We would all eat lunch together sometimes at Lisa was getting ready to go. she would be there the next day and she was like, well, what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to put some chemistry articles that I want our students to read and I was like, wow, that's an amazing thing. You know how you're going to get the students to read because that was one of the initiatives that the school was trying to focus on it. She was like I'm GonNA use board. Now's like flip board never heard of football. She's like Oh. Yes. A really cool tool that you can put articles in. Can just flip through and just read articles. So. I saw the way she used her classroom and not stolen. I use it with my aquatic science. Students quickly became one of the most useful tools that I have ever used in the classroom number one simply because it's a beautiful APP in his fouled on android and IOS devices which Mason. Amazing. At that particular time I don't think it was on the web year, but it was something. That was filed on both devices solves great as device agnostic I can use it for any student. Another thing that I liked about flew board at that particular time was I could generate a qr code and when people come came into my room now, I could point the administrator to the Qr code and I could say, Hey, here is the Qr Code Floor magazine and that administrator would be. Able to pull up the resources that we would have that for students. So that was a really cool thing for me to show that dish shortly after that flew aboard allowed, you start start to be able to make magazines and security. So what I would do is I would have my students to write a newsletter per se of the action or activity that we were doing in class. and. Then, I would have those articles flipped into the floorboard south specifically, I use google docs and Google docs gives you a you are L. linked to share and I would have students to write their articles in Google Docs at using the article typically then I would share their stories to the floor magazine and share no stores to the flip were magazine I. Would they ensure that out to the? teachers and excuse me I share those out to the parents of those students and to the administrators via Qr Code on the door when they walked in so they can see you know exactly what we're doing what was the newsletter? So that was my product. And I'd never ever ever would have been able to use floorboard if it wasn't for Lisa foil I don't think. Lisa. Gets the proper amount of credit. For me still in her idea actually teach there's really no such thing as still is just really borrowed So I definitely want to always give Lisa feuer the chemistry teacher at George, Bush, high school credit for turning me onto flew board and having great ideas and from there it. Just took off because it's so many things that I could do with my students. From example here's one that you can do with yours and the COVID era students are. GonNa be looking for ways to just unwind and a really good cool way to do. It is to share a magazine full of music and was really cool as I like the station on Youtube called Chill Hoppe and as good study music Nice Mellow Music Kinda beat. No, words Nice Melodic melodies as so what you could do is curate a couple of those chill hop songs and put those in a Flip Board magazine and call a study music shared that music with your students from the floorboards magazine and tell them that when they're studying, they can listen to this music now that works well for secondary. Students. As well. However, if you're an elementary teacher, maybe there are some elementary songs that you could find on youtube that would be nice to play in your classroom. Especially, if you teach in the pre K. or early childhood era sharing those songs that teach number facts, fluency Sharon. Diese, want that teach alphabet phonetic sounds. I know phonics is not what you're teaching in elementary but just different techniques that you can share parents it can work as a resource and that and that manner. So. Boss Story Baffler board ends with given Lisa full the credit for giving me turned onto it and how you can enhance your classroom just by sharing music especially in his covert airtime with your students so that it can you know just lower the effect filter and allow them to enjoy being in.

But Nikolai before the break you were talking about helping families navigate some of the legal requirements in states as they Decided to move to home schooling or forming pods. Can you pick up your answer for us? Yes, I was just saying that it really does very jurisdiction by jurisdiction. And I think force kind of and because a lot of the offices we have to remember that are currently closed. A lot of The governmental offices. And so really, there are more questions than answers. But parents are the ultimately are responsible for their own Children's bottom line education, then a lot of the times they can go off of tutoring, tutoring structures and those legalities as well as nanny. Legalities, and we're just gonna have to blend until we have something official from each jurisdiction we got this week from James, who says if you take pods to their logical extremes, you ultimately arrived back at the community based school system. Not dissimilar to the current when we originally established why aren't efforts focused on refunding the hamstrung public school system to help restore equity on Yeah, I'll come to you on this one are is this the time now that we've seen some of the issues that have been laid bare by the pandemic? You have a new discussion about funding public school. Well, I think that the role in the importance of public schooling has never been more visible to millions of parents who understand viscerally how hard public school teachers jobs really are. And I think that the you know the social changes around deciding, you know all the different functions that schools perform in our society from child care, too. You know, obviously education, mental health and even feeding millions of Children. I think it's a little bit difficult to say that you know this is a time to fund from the ground up. There's a little bit of an insidious conversation going on around whether we should take money out of the public schools and give it directly to parents. To pay for these kinds of provisional arrangements, and I think you know that might be going a little bit down the path of reinventing the wheel and potentially forming a system with more inequities even than the one that we left behind, But I think there's a lot of appetite for re imagining. The different functions of public school in our society and understanding that you know, as Nikolai said, what we had before the pandemic was not equitable, and they did not serve all Children equally. Nikola. How do you think pods can provide an opportunity to deconstruct some of the problematic components in our educational system? Well, for one. There's not having police police black brown bodies, and that's a huge deal. Um, we A lot of the systems and the school buildings and the policies in the curriculum centers, whiteness and over. Police is black and brown bodies for Children. Those air concerns that black parents have every day. And so when we look at community based education, we really do shift or we really do shift. What And we can meet the needs of Of Children. In a different way in a way that centers their humanity in a way that the public the current structure has not been able to do very efficiently. And so I think that maybe now was not necessarily the time to we can't undo 100 years or 60 years of systems that are in place in this thiss public school structure in the middle of a pandemic. Now's not the time to do it. But definitely now is the time to discuss it. And now it's the time. To be honest, We don't have to have all of the solutions overtime overnight, but we do have to commit to telling the truth. Land for you. Is this a trend or do you think this is going to continue beyond the pandemic? I think it has a sort of Anya mentioned with parents viscerally feeling the needs right now. I think the vast vast majority of parents are going to be delighted and relieved to send their Children back to their pre pandemic, you know, in most cases, public schools The moment that it's safe to do so. And you know on the school's opening up safely, So, eh, so no, I don't. I don't see this as a trend. Although I absolutely you know wood. I'm hopeful about what Nikolai acing that That to the extent that this pandemic in this crisis has has revealed to us, the inequities that have always been there and they have been made worse by the pandemic. You know, we should be talking about how we can You know, I could continue this work of making our education were equitable in less racist.

Today we're tapping into our one across America partnership with Houston public media, and we're going to Texas. A Christina to Rango is an elementary school math teacher in the Houston Independent School District. Kristina, Thanks for being on one a Hi. Thank you so much for having me So h I s D is one of the largest districts in the nation. What your district's plans for this fall. So our districts plans for this. Our teachers will be returning to work August 24th virtually and students will return virtually on September 8th and were planning Face to face instruction on campus by October 19th pending what the pandemic is looking like in our county. What kinds of measures are well, How are you evaluating whether kids should return to school in October? What's being measured? So what are district has let us now is that they're just following what the CDC guidelines are and they're communicating with the health experts in our county, and that's the only information that we've received. Is that enough information for you as someone who would be heading back into the classroom in October? No, not at all. What would make you comfortable? What kind of information Which you want is a teacher before you start teaching face to face again. I think it would be important. Tio let each campus know like that Specific zip code like how many cases Hominy. Cases are currently going on. What's the trend? Look like we also haven't received any training as faras sanitation that we will be performing, or that will be performed for us or what that really even looks like. In the classroom, so I would really like to hear more about how are we actually going? Tio, Keep these cautions clean. How are we going to and for some of the CDC guidelines such as thie six feet apart the math for Children 10 and up. And the constant washing the hands and sanitizer and who will be providing those resources. So for now, you'll be teaching virtually did teachers push to go this route? Yes, We definitely did way. Have our teachers at inches..

"Been closed for your kids? Do you feel prepared heading into this fall? I don't know. The digital divide definitely has not been filled. Math is a very It's a very sensitive subject, really take someone who has experience in and knows how to teach it in order to properly teach. It s so definitely this year. I'm expecting to make a lot of videos, but also videos that air specific first, you know, student needs every child. Has a question, You know a little bit different from the other so you can't be a one size fits all. It can't just be simply. Here's the video to learn this and that's it. It's I have to. We'll have to break down some of those concepts in different ways for specific students and and the way that they learn because every child learns in a different way. I also don't know We've been notified. Of course, we don't return to work till the 24th of what technology The students have been given. And I've talked to several of my former students and They have received no notification as Faras went to pick up technology if they will be trained for technology or what without look like, and they haven't gotten a lot of answers from campus leadership. So I'm hoping that When I return on the 24th that there will be some sort of plan that will be able to follow and kind of understand what the expectation is for teachers and students and parents, Because obviously, parents, you know will be assisting in their Children at home with with learning in terms of the district has given you what do you feel You still need? What do you feel? You've gotten enough off this point. Well, I actually don't have any technology from my district. I used my own personal laptop, my own Internet access and My own phone. I've found creative ways of being able to situate my phone so that I'm able to use it. Essentially as a document camera or to make videos of myself. I've purchased an extra Webcams so I can have two different screen so I can have two different views where the student can see me and and also see the work. Um so I feel like I'm not 100% sure of what I could, but I would need more until we actually have a plan on how we're supposed to deliver this instruction. Because sometimes you don't know what you need. You know, until you need it. If you're sitting across from the superintendent of H, I s d right now. The person who in some degree has has control over the checkbook. What would you say to them? Well, when I would say to her that I am extremely proud that she made the decision for us to go virtual. I think she made uncredible decision. I think she put the students and staff first. And I think that that's amazing. And I think that that others you know, Superintendent should should follow her lead. The other thing that I would like to ask her is you know what's the real plan because, unfortunately, like I said, our district is decentralized. And so that means that each campus leader can make Decisions at their own discretion. So Every campus is going to be running a little differently. So I would like to ask her this year. Since we're dealing with this pandemic and going virtual can we just have a universal way of learning virtually until we're able to return to class? And then those campus leaders can make their own personal discretion. All decisions for campus need. But at this point in time, you know we have parents of multiple Children in different schools. You know if you've got an elementary school doing one thing, learning this way at this time in the middle school, doing the same thing at the same time, How can the parent balance that so they just needs to be a lot of communication. You know, you know vertically like a cross like, how are we going to align together to make this work for a family who has multiple Children who made on Ly have one device And what does that look like for them? That's Christina Tarango. She's an elementary school math teacher in the Houston Independent School District. Christina Thank you, Thank you so much.
