Fentanyl Vaccine-Fentanyl intro and wrap
"Researchers at the university of Houston demonstrated a potential weapon in the fight against the nation's growing fentanyl crisis. Doctor Colin Hale's team is working on a vaccine. This in combination with president treatments will be a game changer. Hale says you get the vaccine. You develop antibodies against fentanyl. These antibodies bind to fentanyl if it is consumed and prevent it from getting into the brain where it may trigger euphoric centers or trigger respiratory depression and opioid overdose death. Texas governor Greg Abbott met with the researchers. Quite literally fentanyl is killing Texas. Abbott says the problem is not just in his state, its nationwide. Over the past year, about 1400 Texans lost their lives because of Fibonacci. Hale says current fentanyl treatments are not adequate, and we need a different strategy. I'm Ed Donahue
Pentagon debuts its new stealth bomber, the B-21 Raider
"The nation's newest nuclear stealth bomber will make its public debut today after years of secret development. The B 21 raider is the first new American bomber in more than 30 years. It'll be unveiled in California 7 years after then air force secretary Deborah Lee James announced the need for a new one to take on potential threats from China and Russia. The LRS B will allow the air force to operate in tomorrow's high end threat environment. The rate of program is highly classified. Artist renderings reveal the bomber resembles the one it will replace the B two spirit. Builder north of Grumman says that's where the similarities end. Analysts say changes could include advanced materials making the raider harder to detect and the ability to disguise itself as another object on radar, 6 raiders are in production as The Pentagon tries to modernize its nuclear force. The cost is unknown. Sagar Meghani, Washington
The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen
"Everybody's talking about the new movie coming out called cocaine bear. Cocaine bear. I talk about this movie when it before I was a movie, but it was optioned and when there were attaching and director and there weren't even actors cast, and I said back then, two years ago, I can't wait to see this movie. Because it's based on a true story of a bear ingesting so much cocaine that he died. But this story is amazing. The story of cocaine bear begins with a body in a driveway. This guy, Andrew Thornton, the second was a paratrooper, a police officer, and a lawyer before he turned into he turned to drug smuggling. And he was moving loads of cocaine into America from Columbia, and he would take his sesta 404 up in the air and make these runs and he was having a ball. But law came to an end in September of 1985 when police discovered his dead body in a driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee, and he had been heavily armed, he had on a bulletproof vest. He was carrying thousands of dollars in cash and also oh, by the way, 77 pounds of cocaine valued at $14 million, which was stuffed into a duffel bag, strapped around his waist. And he might have gotten away with it again, but his parachute didn't open after he jumped from his airplane, and then authorities found the plane about 60 miles away and that began the investigation. Thornton had the directed the aircraft toward the Atlantic Ocean, and he settled on autopilot figuring, I'll jump out now, I have all the Coke on me and the plain old crash in the ocean and they'll figure the guy who was piloting it is dead, eaten by sharks, whatever. But turns out he wasn't the only casualty. In his final drug smuggling moves, let's go to November of 85, two months, a month later. Some hunter finds a dead black bear in chattahoochee national forest, a 175 pound bear. And right near that bear was a duffel bag that had initially carried around 77 pounds of cocaine. This bear came upon it. And he got into the blow, and he overdosed. And as it's already later figured out, by the way, the flight path was, et cetera, that this had to be the plane with the drugs on it, and the guy that died and they put it all together.
Ye no longer buying Parler app, Twitter account suspended
"The rapper Ye has been kicked off of Twitter in a rambling interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Thursday, the rapper Ye formerly known as Kanye West, talked about his recent meeting with Donald Trump, made anti semitic jokes, and said he saw good things about Hitler. His Twitter account was suspended after posting a picture of a swastika merged with a star of David. The platform's new owner, Elon Musk, tweeted that the rapper had again violated our rule against incitement to violence, Ye posted an unflattering picture of Musk in what he called his final tweet. Meanwhile, parler announced that the rapper is no longer buying the conservative social media site back in October, they'd said the acquisition would be completed near the end of this year. Parler was launched in August of 2018, surged in popularity when followers of Donald Trump migrated to the site, it had to be relaunched after it was kicked off of Google Apple and Amazon Web servers in January of 2021 over its ties to the insurrection at the U.S. capitol.

A Prayer for Truth This Christmas
"A prayer for the truth, this Christmas, written in red by Meg bucher. Second Timothy chapter two verse 19. But that's truth stands firm like a foundation stone. With this inscriptive, the lord knows who are his, and all who belong to the lord must turn away from evil. The day my daughter discovered the truth about Christmas, I wiped tears from her eyes and assured her. Every Christmas would still be just as special as all of the others. The truth about Christmas isn't rooted in the North Pole, but in God's word, Paul's letter to Timothy reminds us that's truth stands firm like a foundation stone. In Paul's day, as there are now, and will continue to be, false teachers twist the truth about who Jesus was. The enemy is prone to take truth and use it against us, or out of context. The truth about Christmas doesn't fade and fall away, as we grow up into adulthood, truth grows more beautiful over the years, as it is watered faithfully. The lord knows who's our his. Paul wrote it reminds me of the Christmas Carol that sings, he's making a list and checking it twice. God has actually written our names in the book of life. Scripture says he not only knows our names, but every hair on our heads at any given time. He knit us together on our mother's womb, the Bible says. How thrilling to create a person? We are made in his image, and he has given us a purpose, unique to each of us. Our lives are so special to God. Nothing could
Day 336 of The Bible in a Year: The Council at Jerusalem
"The acts of the apostles, chapter 15. The council at Jerusalem but some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brethren unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you can not be saved. And when Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and debate with them, Paul and Barnabas and some of the others were appointed to go up to Jerusalem to the apostles and the elders about this question. So being sent on their way by the church, they passed through both Phoenicia and samaria, reporting the conversion of the gentiles, and they gave great joy to all the brethren. When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them. But some believers who belonged to the party of the pharisees rose up and said, it is necessary to circumcise them, and to charge them to keep the law of Moses. The apostles and the elders were gathered together to consider this matter. And after there had been much debate, Peter rose, and said to them, brethren, you know that in the early days God made choice among you that by my mouth, the gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. And God who knows the heart bore witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, and he made no distinction between us and them, but cleansed their hearts by faith. Now therefore why do you make trial of God by putting a yoke upon the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe that we shall be saved through the grace of the lord Jesus, just as they will. silence, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul as they related what signs and wonders God had done through them among the gentiles. After they finished speaking, James replied, brethren listened to me. Simeon has related how God first visited the gentiles to take out of them a people for his name. And with this, the words of the prophets agree, as it is written, after this, I will return. And I will rebuild the dwelling of David, which has fallen. I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up. That the rest of men may seek the lord, and all the gentiles who are called by my name says the lord, who has made these things known from of old. Therefore, my judgment is that we should not trouble those of the gentiles who turn to God, but should write to them to abstain from the pollution of idols and from unchastity and from what is strangled and from blood. For from early generations, Moses has had in every city those who preach him for he is read every Sabbath in the synagogues. The council's letter to the gentile believers. Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church. To choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas.
Media Crushes Jerry Jones Over 1957 Photo
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the occupation show. Hey, I want to jump back into the conversation I was having about LeBron James and I want you to get the chance to hear Stephen a smith's take on Cherry Jones. Being pictured in a picture of something 68 years ago. Wrote a clip of Stephen a Smith. On my podcast, no mercy. Because you got people that wanted to come at me in the wrong way. I stand by what I said. In regards to a 14 year old in a still photo. And that's what you want to use to jump on them. You just highlight it. There's plenty of other things to jump when Jerry Jones about. You ain't never hired black coach. You didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick and his rights as an American citizen to do what he did. You didn't speak out initially. You were actually hiding when it came to social justice issues, Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones would tell you I told him that. Where you at? I'll give a damn what you say. Say something. You gotta speak up. You can't be quiet. But that's entirely different. They use in the still photo of a 14 year old standing in a crowd in 1957, pre civil rights, pre voting rights because clearly the climate of those times were what it was. Do we need to regurgitate what the hell was going on in the gym crow south? We all know that story. Lynchings murders, rapes mayhem all types of stuff. All types of insidious despicable things that was done and inflicted upon the black race. We understand what the hell was going on down there. So if you're Jerry Jones and you're standing in the crowd, I'm looking at how you're acting more than I'm looking at what the environment is. I would love to let him finish, but I just need to talk about what he said. He didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick, but he panned dak Prescott a very handsome. I'm out of money. So it make this make sense. He don't care about black people, but his quarterback is probably one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Oh, but he didn't stand up for Colin. 'cause Colin Kaepernick is an idiot. That's why he didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick. But he's standing up for that Prescott.
Bill O'Reilly: The Unknown Dangers of Fame
"Well I do want to start with this because there's been so much going on and actually this book kind of is very relatable to events going on killing the legends the lethal danger of celebrity See that happening with Kanye West among others Incredible that when people become famous their whole lives obviously change And they become targets But in ways that many don't understand So killing the legends about Elvis Presley John Lennon and Muhammad Ali all of whom changed American culture We live today in a way that is defined by these three men in part And it's an amazing historical story People said look this is your 12 killing book all the others killing Lincoln killing your rising sun Big events Now you're going into cultural history But the history is so intense and people don't understand how celebrity can destroy you if you don't understand what's going on And let me make this personal to you Mark Levin You're famous Okay Everyone knows you Everybody knows me And because of that there are benefits but there are deficits And I think you following your career over the years understood quite readily that you could not make yourself available in a casual way And so people don't know about what you do where you are you do some book signings and that kind of thing But in you correct me if I'm wrong you understand there is a danger And looking at this is true Look at Nancy Pelosi okay And you can just every you can just stare step it There are legions of famous people
LeBron James Upset Media Ignored Asking About 1957 Jerry Jones Photo
"I was wondering why I haven't gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo But when the Kyrie thing was going on you guys were quick to access questions about that Okay Hold on hold on Hold on hold on I don't even want you guys to say nothing When I was like who's this guy think he is I've never even heard athlete talk like this Black white Hispanic whatever And I don't want you guys to talk and say nothing Wow Go ahead And he says I know who I am But I want to keep the same energy when we're talking about my people and the things we've been through And that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people black people have been through in America And I feel like it's a black man as a black athlete as someone with power and a platform When we do something wrong or something that people don't agree with every single tabloid every single news coverage it's on the bottom ticker it's asked about every single day But it seems like to me that the whole Jerry Jones situation photo And I know it was years and years ago and we all make mistakes I get it But it seems like it's just been buried under what happened We just move on And I was just kind of disappointed I haven't received that question from you guys
10 Los Angeles middle schoolers treated for suspected overdoses
"To know if cannabis edibles were behind the overdoses of several LA students, I'm Lisa dwyer. Ten Los Angeles students appear to have overdosed on edible cannabis products at their middle school in the San Fernando valley. The Los Angeles fire department says the students between 13 and 14 years old experienced mild to moderate distress at the van nuys middle school, fire department captain Eric Scott says the overdoses were possibly from edible cannabis products and investigators want to know if it all came from the same source. That would be a possibility that there was all from the same bunch, but that has to be conclusively determined. The important information here is that this is not fentanyl related
Patriot Freedom Project Is Uplifting the Jan. 6 Detainee's Families
"I am thrilled right now to be joined by someone who is doing the work that too few people have taken on in a time where we have people in need. Her name is Cynthia Hughes. She runs the patriot freedom project and they are raising money to help the people in the gulag and all of those who have been attacked by the abuse of power by our deep state. And I want to welcome you to the show Cynthia. Thank you for having me, James. Nice to see you. And I greatly appreciate the fact you've got a fundraiser tonight that I'm going to. And I can't wait to see you there. But you're taking time out of that to talk to us. And I wanted to make sure that everybody who listens to America first radio can hear the need and also hopefully reach in their pockets and donate some money to help. My wife Samantha says this all the time. Where is the money to take care of our side like the left has for their team? If anybody, you get a bunch of rioters and looters, you got the vice president and future vice president of the United States begging for money for them. Where's the people doing that on our side? And she's sitting right there on the other side of this conversation. So tell us about what you need to help these people. So, you know, I've had the honor of meeting a ton of the families that are affected by January 6th. I've met mothers. I've met wives. This week I have several of the families here in D.C. that are coming to the fundraiser tonight and I was just with them yesterday with all of their babies and let me tell you Jim. It's very, very it gives you a lot of perspective. Makes you realize that whatever problems you think you have, they're small in comparison. When you hear a three year old daughter on the phone with her daddy, asking him when is he coming home? The community that I've created here for these families and seeing the interaction with these women is so humbling it just brings joy to my heart. It's amazing. You're going to see it for yourself tonight. The way they help each other, the way they comfort each other, who's helping with what child, who's changing a diaper, who's making a bottle, they were cooking dinner together, hugging each other, but listening to the children of these men that are behind bars. It's heartbreaking. It's absolutely heartbreaking. And the country needs to know what is going on besides the talk about what's going on at the D.C. jail. It is so much bigger than the 18 men that are left in the D.C. jail. We have multiple J 6 detainees spread around this country in different gels, and we have a lot of collateral damage. And that is the wife and the children.
America Is Losing Trust in Our Military
"Wall Street Journal today, Americans are losing trust in the military. The rise of woke politics is undermined public confidence in the brass. Yeah. The current era is marked by fading trust in U.S. institutions. Thank you left. You've destroyed them all. But confidence in one pillar has held up the military. But now even that is eroding and the question is whether the brass will get the message. The Reagan institute releases an annual survey of public attitudes on national defense, this year only 48% reported having a great deal of confidence in the U.S. Military. That's down from 70% four years ago. Wow. Overwhelming majority to a minority. This is consistent with other surveys, Pew Research this year noted a 14 point drop since 2020 in Americans who said they had a great deal of confidence in the military to act in the public's interest. The Reagan poll asked Americans what is driving the decline? It isn't the ability to carry out missions or win in a fight. It is quote things going on outside the core competencies of the military.
Surviving Wokeness on College Campuses
"So I'm reading to you a piece by Joshua Katz, Professor of classics until last year at Princeton highly regarded in his field by his colleagues at Princeton, but he wrote a piece about wokeness. And that ended his career. Listen to this. Let's give you an idea of the moral quality of the cowardice that is a scenic one on college teaching. If you're not a coward, it's very hard to rise in academia. Let alone be a president or a dean. Cowardice is essential in your resume. Exactly one of my 16, none retired former colleagues in the department of classics at Princeton University. Has been in touch touch since I was fired last May. I'll continue with that in a moment. I want you to understand non retired. See, the retired, they don't fear being fired. They don't fear, but you won't be fired if you're in touch with Joshua Katz and you teach at the classics department at Princeton. It's that you don't want to be on the outs with your colleagues. To be to actually be a human being and contact your former colleague one of my 16 non retired former colleagues in the department of classics at Princeton University. Has been in touch since I was fired last May.
Caller: The Conservative Movement Needs a Winner
"I agree with you on pretty much your whole standpoint with Trump and America and what he's done. It's amazing. And if I could install him right now, I would absolutely do it. It'd be the best. He'd be the best guy. But it's not about that. The problem is the conservative movement needs a torch carrier, okay? And we need to win. You've got to win. It doesn't matter how much I like Trump. I get it. I don't see him winning. There's no way he's going to win. And I have friends who say the same thing that it's about electability. Of course, that's what they hope you'll say. That's what the beast wants you to say. And I'm not saying that, by the way, to minimize your opinion on this. Listen, you could be right, because well, let me put it this way. You are right. We got to win in 2024. It's one thing to sit around and say, we think he'd be the best guy for the job. Larry elder might be the best guy for the job. Larry elder is talking about running, but he's got to win. You got to say, who's got the best chance of beating back the universe of the left. And I get that. Now, I want to remind you as people are looking at all the list of accomplishments and the success of the Trump presidency. Matt, you and I heard that in 2015 and 2016 too, that he can't win. We heard the difference. There's a big difference. What's the difference in 2016, the media had not had years and years and years to build a pile up on Trump and to really hurt the minds of the middle of America. That has to vote for him. And that's why he got in in 2016. Nobody on either side really had a long time to build up a big pile of cash on him. And that's why I think others might have a better opportunity coming up here. I think Trump, they have made him unelectable. I think he loses three to 7 points in the next election.
Here's the Long List of Donald Trump's Achievements
"I swear of all the things we send out on the MyPillow text line, the Trump achievements list is by far and away the most popular. My text line, I can't even keep up with everybody because it's spinning like a little pinball machine because so many people are texting Trump. People don't even know. You forget, I guess. We have short memories. The list of Trump accomplishments is astounding. And you compare it to the first two years of the Biden administration? So for now, if you're sending me comments, I can't really see them because so many people are texting the keyword Trump to 806 5 5 mic and we're sending back this list of Trump's achievements during his presidency. I mean, I'm not kidding you. I'm talking thousands.
Willie Geist: Trump Was Hustled by a 24-Year Old White Supremacist
"Here's what Willie geist said this morning, and I'm sorry, but I mean, it won't go away and people are emailing me about it and you're calling and you're texting, so we might as well confront this. Here's what Willie guy said this morning on MSNBC and morning Joe about Trump's dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Kanye and the supremacist guy. By the way, we should point out as the story has developed over a couple of days. Donald Trump got totally hustled by this guy. He showed up at the dinner with Kanye West. He wanted the attention of having his name out there. He got that. And now he's condemning Donald Trump and said he's abandoned the base. He's not our guy anymore. So Donald Trump got totally hustled by a 24 year old white supremacist and Holocaust denier. Now, again, I don't know if that's true or not. Maybe it is, maybe it's not. I don't trust anything that comes from morning Joe, do you? But let's just suppose that it's true. This colleague of mine calls me this morning. She says, Mike, admit it to me. Tell me the truth. Don't you really kind of wish Trump would fade off into the sunset? Don't you wish he'd kind of go away? Don't you like Ron DeSantis or somebody else? Because they're going to go nuts if he gets the nomination again. And if he runs and if he wins, they're going to go out of their minds. And I said to her, don't you realize that's what they want? They want you to think that.
The Modern Federal Reserve Keeps Getting It Wrong
"At the fed out with their statement, so to speak today, he was out speaking in remarks this is Jerome Powell at the brookings institute and he is trying to address some of these concerns that people have about how aggressively they're going to move. I should point out that most market watchers thought that they would back off and we'd be looking at a half point interest rate hike in the month of December as opposed to the 75 basis points, he basically indicated that that would be the case. Let me share with you some of the things that he said. Despite some promising developments, Powell said we have a long way to go and restoring stability. He went on to say, thus, it makes sense to moderate the pace of our rate increases as we approach the level of restraint that will be sufficient to bring inflation down. So they think they're getting there. They think they're getting there. I mean, you guys managed to come down under 8% and somehow that's that's what you need. I think it's going to take a lot more. He went on. The time for moderating the pace of rate increases may come as soon as the December meeting. Hey, so much for the mystery in this relationship, right? You know what, years ago. Many, many years ago, it used to be that the fed governors, you know, they didn't speak. They were all those ideas about, okay, what's in the briefcase? How is Greenspan holding his briefcase as he crosses the street and then Greenspan started to talk some more, right? Remember the Greenspan speak, but that was effectively sort of in code, and over the years you've had these heads of the Federal Reserve, you've had governors there at the fed speak more and more and more effectively taking that mystery out of the relationship, which I think is kind of a shame, because now it's all about what Jerome Powell says. People think, okay, we know he's telegraphing this. And by the way, when they telegraph these things, they try to stay pretty much true to their words. It's not like they're saying one thing and doing another because they know that would really scare the Mark. I mean, if I were them and by the way, I say this as a journalist who wants all the information I can get, but I could do without all the chatter from these folks like Powell, who then feel they have to follow through on whatever it is that they're saying. Because they keep getting it wrong. And they've been getting it wrong for a really long time. And I think if you look back through history, what you've seen is that the modern Federal Reserve just consistently messes up every single time. And as a result, you get big bubbles and you get recessions and all the things that they're supposed to do, right? Iron out the fluctuations in the economy. They wind up in some way, shape or form unintentionally helping to create, and thus we have the problem that we even have right now,

"Right. it's okay because it doesn't count right. I can reinforce what we're doing and say it's okay to get things wrong leading. The students know that this is a safe space. This is a place where we can get answers. Raw and learn and stumble and struggle because the struggle is where progress really happened. And that's great so student gets a right again. Praised student gets it wrong again. Pray and then. I give him the answer right. Yes that's the right answer. No the answer. Is this or somebody else told me the answer. Yes that's the right so now we've got the right answer and here's where i can also add more double benefit were bonus because all right so we're doing the launch. We're doing the warm up. We've done a multiple choice question. Let me let me share something with you about this question. Let me give you a thirty second to sixty second mini lecture on why. This question is import adding more content. More understand hitting them not just or not just with writing but also with spoken word learning right and they're being connecticut at the same time because they're writing things down so i'm getting multiple learning styles going. I'm giving them deeper content. I'm teaching them medical condition. I'm teaching. I'm giving them positive rates. All of this is what's happening with the first three minutes of quests so that little mini lecture that thirty second to sixty second and yes i'll admit sometimes it's longer than sixty seconds when you're a teacher. Sometimes you talk too much. And i'm no different than any other teacher. But that can lead to an additional quest back me that can lead to additional like a question about that really what or can lead to a spark of interest right. I'm showing them how to use his how to make connections in his explain significance in his. And here's the other kicker right. If you wanna call triple benefit. I suppose it. It offers an opportunity for example. If there's a question and then there's the answer give be an example of that answer. And i won't just say give me an example of that said i will give you something if you give me an additional piece of information in you go taper. Can you go farther. Can you tell me an example of what you just told me. And i sit in on the hill about this. I'll give you a gold star in my heart forever. If you can tell me an example of what right so there it is that goldstar heart forever kids always. Oh my gosh. she's gonna give me something extra. Is it extra credit. Well yeah i kind of in my heart forever so no. It's not actually a point in your grade book but it's actually all we all really respect. You and i'll praise you all applaud. You which to some kids is worth more than a point migrate so getting the kisco further. Applauding the kids when they do or helping the kids if they don't go. I giving them that exam so three or four multiple choice questions. Maybe there's a short answer. That is the launch. That is the warm up. Maybe it's a critical thinking question. Maybe there's a pair pair share activity there but really. That's what happens in the i i to ten minutes glass right and we're already after when that's done we are deep into the history thing we are warmed up ready to go and they've already gotten more information than they would have gotten if they had just on the homework assignment and we did nothing out of already achieved multiple objective in that with student engagement student communication. You know formative assessments I could even make it a summit of assessment. But i wouldn't recommend it as you know. We don't wanna play gotcha with kids early morning. But you know it's like all of that can be done in the first ten minutes of glass and it really helps to then launched them into what's going to happen and that's what i would hit them with the agenda right after we after we do the law after that warm up then i go over the agenda and i can you know maybe explain how that launch the next to our agenda or if there's something in the lesson for that day i can always draw back to that agenda that warm up exercise you know and sometimes my objective for the class that day. We'll be one of the answers to the question in the launch in the warm up and And there in lies a great chance to achieve successor. Leon is nothing. Gets kids more excited than than achieving success. In the first five to ten minute by the idea being that you know you wanna you wanna get excited. You want to get them engaged and willing to learn willing to learn. A lot of kids aren't even willing to learn some time but if you can make it positive safe engaging deeper thinking citing fast paced in the first ten minutes it's going to be better than otherwise better than if you don't right. That's that's definitely something to think about And like i said there's a variety of ways you can do this it doesn't have to be one way and I you know you could do you pull out an old test. You know maybe kids got you know you just took a test and a lot of kids got question raw. Then make that the. Make that the warm the next day right. What's the answer this question that we all got this year. You know and then you know they might remember. Oh yeah elvis stuff where they think they got it right on the test but they didn't get it right on the test so you can talk about why things are right or wrong. You can talk about how you might answer question. What makes it difficult question when what are some of the pitfalls or the things that kids often get no wrong because they misunderstand there. I've even had warm up exercises where the instructions are a key to reading and to succeeding on the on the law on the up. And if you don't read the instructions you get it wrong. Boom another.

"Or more each depending on debt. So the co if it's a three or four multiple choice questions i to do that too for a number of reasons Alpes three or four multiple choice questions from the test bank of the textbook that i use in. Us history class and give it to the kids. Ryan are posted online. I'll give up his. And i'll tell you know do your best. You should be able to answer these questions. If you read the and i'll give them five minutes and during that five minutes that's when i do my housekeeping chores right. Attendance email less second phone call and after those few minutes. I'll give him a one minute. Heads up hey. We're going to go over it and one minute. Kids are usually pretty intently. Trying to figure out the answers some of them are even looking them up in the book. Oh no how can they do that. That must be cheating now. It's not cheating. no not cheating. I want them to use the book and want them to look up the answers if they don't because that's all it's all about getting to learn tricking them into learning right and if they are looking things up in the book then on notice that this yeah okay so so and so is not reading well enough or not reading it all. Maybe i need to reach out to so and so and see if they need my help. You know these visual clues might more data picking up more data in informal assessment right so after five minutes of four multiple choice questions. I then get the whole class back together. And i could do one of two things i can have them. Share their answers with each other so that they're teaching each other the answers and that's good interaction for the kids gives me a chance to maybe talk one on one with students or or two who are struggling right to check in with the kids who i know will struggle and it gets the kids talking with each other always good if if i don't want to drag it out if i have a lot of stuff to do in a short amount of time maybe i don't do the pair share right with their neighbor. I'll just go over the answers with now. This is this is where things get a little conflict and really value. Tell the kids when it over the answers right now. Mark down the answers you get right but circle the answers you get wrong and marked on. The radio meant i. Emphasize do not erase the wrong answer and write down the right one mark which ones are right record the right answers and make sure you doubly note the ones you got wrong because there in lies the learning therein lies the learning of what they do not know i tell them you know. These are review sheets. Here's the here's here's the second valuable valuable thing about a launch or a up is that they're actually going to become test review sheets for whatever test we might have going down the road right. And since i pull the questions from the test bank And i might even use these same questions on the test. The kids know the. Hey wow this is something. I got to pay attention to. I've got their attention right. And they're thinking about his and it's like three minutes into the class and they've already done some and shared some in thought about some big went so they know to mark down the wrong answers so that they know what to study from and it also saves me time. I don't have to make a review sheet. Because i've been giving them review sheets every debt another win for me over the ans- and In this case. I could a randomly ask kids right all. I read out question. Read out the possible answers to multiple choice. If it's bill in the blank whatever and then i'll ask so and so hey what's up you don't know let's get an or raise your hand if you can answer and if nobody raises their hand. This is my chance for to say okay. This is a learning opportunity. Is a learning awareness moment for all of us because nobody raised their hand. Answer this question so that means. Nobody in. The room knows this answer. This is when we all need to make sure we know for the test. I'm teaching them study skills. I'm teaching them how to work in class to prepare for their for their test on the road and teaching them how to make sure that they know what so the next thing i do and i think you'll really like this is is also a double benefit off to me and the student and before i tell you i just want to let you know one more thing.

There's of great moment for me to praise him or her in front of every student in the class whatever pronoun the sudanese him her whatever. Great opportunity for me to start with the positively right off the bat. Positively really helps launched the class. It's a really great would want the room.

"And to and You know who i was i was more caught up. I think using the first day first moments of every class who kinda get the housekeeping chores dot. There's a law that you have to do when that bell rings you know. Teachers are required to make sure that the kids are in the room that they're sitting down their cell. Phones aren't out when i first started. They didn't have cell phones out. They didn't have iphone But you know today teach to me sure. There are no ear buds in oftentimes. There's a hat policy. That might be a dress code policy that you have to go through. There might be moments of drama or teenage emergencies that have to be dealt with at the beginning. Who therefore you can't be in front of the class or so much going on and then of course there's attendance. There might be announcements. That need to be made seating rearrangements that need to be handled for a quick phone call from the office usually comes into the beginning of class because somebody needs to go down to see their counselor or somebody's later somebody whatever so. There's a lot that happens in the first five minutes and part of the trick to making a successful warm up is to realize that that is normal that that chaos is to be expected and to anticipate that and to have this routine laid out so that students will be engaged with the material. While i'm running around like chicken with my head cut off trying to make sure that every email phone call or attendance record gets submitted or responded to talk right and so warm up helps me but it also helps them right it gives it gives me a breather to deal with all of that housekeeping while. The students aren't just sitting there looking at those ceiling right or or or doing something. They should do right. So it's a management tool in that sense but it's also a cognitive start right so over time it has come that i've begun to use those mon those warm up mumps to reconnect the students to things that they did before right that they did before Signs that they had done it could be previous test. It could be a previous discussion. It can be the very thing the last thing we did in our previous or it could just be something from the five to ten pages. They read for trying. Keep my homeworks homework. Assignments pretty pretty close pretty short. And i'll probably do another episode of homework. Homework means to me So go into detail on that but in the class usually begins right to the bell rings to start the day or to end the last class and i usually like to brite my students at the door. This is really when the warm up. And i'll have a a have the warm up ready to go off for them in the past or when the in the door opens up. I greet the students as they come in. Say hello to them in lively and energetic because they're usually not lively or energetic they're usually like oh my god my life is so hard and oh my god the drama. Oh my god the to the the outrage. Oh i hate you hate her. Oh i hate him. You know teenage right teenage angst and so just trying to be a positive happy face you know. This is a happy space. You're coming into. This is a teacher who cares about you. Who greets you at the doors as a low. Maybe even uses your name. You know that's another thing So that there's that connection so that there's that no where and so the kids come into the room and these days you know they. They typically have a warm up waiting for them and there'll be an an alert to that being posted on board either projected or written on the board there is A launch as i call launching them into the less or a warm up for lack of better term that they need to do right away and these days. I'm posting the on line because we've moved almost everything online for covert. The kid is absent. They can still have access to everything even if they're not in school so everything's gone on lot but in the past. I haven't had these things you know posted online for them and they work just as well right so In the past. I've actually greet the kids at the door and then passed out. The launch passed out the warm. You know when. I used to actually make copies of things in past not today no copy because obviously were inchoate so What i have done in the past is really quite interesting. It's all designed to have multiple uses for the students multiple uses for this and for our infamy. And before i can go into that i just wanted to tell you one thing i if you've missed any of the episodes of school year you're in luck. You can find an entire library of all of the episodes of school year available for free on history though dot law going over there and see what we've got. I also post a lot of other interesting articles that i've written on history which you might find interesting as well. I've written about diverse. The women's rights movement the gay liberation movement the revolutionary war. The loss spy planes ordered the time that we accidentally dropped three nuclear bombs on spain. All these things. Which i find interesting you might wanna take a look at. I suggest you go to history. Dojo dot logan if you wanna be alerted to anytime that a new episode of school year or a new article for me out. Subscribe at history doj dot block. And then you'll be sure not to miss anything so going over to his job dot block and see what you like. Thanks right so thank you for listening to that. But you know what i wanted to tell you was that when i when i hand out these papers or a handout or a host on line. What a launch. His warm up his The students will then look it and it's typically questions that are based upon the reading that they did the night before. This is a great way for me to see if they are doing the homework because if they can answer these questions you and then then they're probably reading and if they can't answer these questions than i can see that they are aren't reading. It's way that they're going to communicate with me without even knowing without them even knowing that their community. And i can do this by you. Know walking around the room and looking to see what they're writing Are they answering the questions or are they just guessing are they not engaging at all and i can make mental notes these things and help them eventually or re reachout say. Hey i noticed. You really weren't engage with the launch Over the so. That's one way to now. The questions themselves They vary right. It can be anything from just one just a question. I pulled out of the textbook right. It could be one of those questions that they put in. The margins techs to do that. It could be a question. I got from the end of the section. You know one of those critical thinking questions that has often in a standardized text book. Everything stellar unbelievably difficult. You can be just something simple. Might simply based upon what they did for homework or something we were talking about last time lap to make it really right as of course you know if they weren't paying attention last time class answer it now that's an important piece of. I want to know they missed the whole lesson last time right so now i can. I even throw up you know. The for the for the warm-up could be the objective question from my lesson plans from the previous class and have them expressed that in their own words and then after a few minutes. I'd go around. And i'd ask right so you know and i can draw names at random to do this. I can just a volunteers. Its first period probably have to draw names at random if its last period. I could probably just do volunteers. The kids can be sleepy or.

Join me for a walk through the school.

There is to join me for school. Hi everybody this. Is tyler russ your host for school year. A podcast about my experience is a teacher in a public school. After twenty years of teaching and Lots of learning in the process.

We're just curious to know more about what it's like the a teacher egg public school so this episode today is one that i think you'll really enjoy. It's one that. I have been thinking a lot about recently as i have now reached the end of the third week of school for the year and things are starting to kind of settle in. Today's topic is going to be on warm ups. and how do you start a successful class To make sure that you know you with the way you start will lead to good andy. Reid successful productive learning for the students against the moment. The bell rings whether or not there in the room. And how do you launch the class. How do you. How do you warm the students up. How do you get the conversations going on whatever topic you're teach i from one teach social studies. I teach Us history. And i teach government. Econ that's an eleventh grade. Us history class and a twelfth grade economics class right now. In a few months it'll become a twelfth grade government class as their semester long courses but each one requires me to get the kids into that frame of mind so that they can actually learn to the best of their ability and so today. I'm gonna to talk a little bit. About how i go about doing that. How my process has changed over time. What's worked for me. What hasn't worked for me. And what i'm thinking about doing in the future so please join me for the warm up and how it works for me in the classroom but i. If you're enjoying this gas please feel free to go on over to history. Doj dot law. That's where i post articles and other podcasts. That i've recorded on a variety of top. Think you'll like it of written about things as diverse as the cold war.

I'm doing a lot of these teaching. And so if you wanna get the of reminded of whenever i find host these please check it out by subscribing history dojo dot. Okay so today everybody. I'm talking a little bit about how you start your class and how i start. My class has changed a lot since i first walked in that room over twenty years ago And you know i'm sure. A lot of people have have seen changes in the ways. The teachers go about their pedagogy How they go about structuring their class. Getting the learning going. And and i i want to start this conversation but saying that. I don't have any Any monopoly on how you do. I have the one way that students should be introduced to the classroom to the to the lesson to the to the learning and to the in they begin to engage with. What have what. I'm going to offer you today. Is is just what i do. And it's imperfect it doesn't always work but it works enough that keep doing it. And i see the impact and i explain how it impacts the students as well so i'm going to go into a little bit of what i've done before what i'm doing now at and how that might help so today You should probably know that. I started out this of in this job over twenty years ago. I think this is actually my twenty first year in teaching and as a result when i first started as i'm sure many of you who are veteran teachers who listen to this podcast. You probably don't do anything like you did the very first year or two years of teaching. They say that most teachers. I think it's over fifty percent quit after the first five years. If you can make it past the first five years you might have what it takes it easier because you know those first years are a really challenge because you are flailing avowed trying to find something that will work and to develop your own practice and a lot of people you realize in those first five years that it's a lot and maybe there are things that they would rather do. That don't require them to do so much. In order to achieve some sort of success their job maybe maybe teachers who stick with it after the five years it really gluttons punishment and and just accepted that maybe i like you know in about in failing more than i succeed because those successes are just so sweet when you actually find something that works well and it really turns a kid onto what you're trying to teach them. Those are the moments that teachers really. It paid more than any other profession. Those are the those are the most when you know you have actually reached a child. And you've made a difference in their thought process in their view world and they're experienced in life because of some little thing that you did that made a difference with right so warm ups can be just that and they're not you know there's lots of ways you can reach. Children students learners. The warm up is just the first thing that you can trot. So when i first started doing it. I would come into class early as many teachers do. And on the board. I would put A quotation of the day a quotation of the day. Or today this day in history in on i spent a lot of time trying to find good quotations or mom or things that happened in history that would be of interest to put on the board And i found that. I was doing this a lot. More self.

"This is a small measure of equity at appreciation and compassion. So that's that's part of the grade book the in the last couple of minutes i have for today for today's episode on the grade book I just wanted to maybe talk a little bit about. What's going to happen the next couple of days because on on monday the next couple of days on monday I will actually be meeting my students for the first time in a very very excited about that. I'll be meeting my students on monday. And i'm not planning to do any any curriculum on monday. What you're not gonna teach your class. No i am gonna teach my class. I'm just not gonna crack. Open the textbooks right away. See one of the things should maybe devote my. No a future podcast. This is the first days are really important for creating connection establishing environment routines and to get to know them on a personal level and the them let them know me in a way. That's not just about history in that way we can establish that teacher student relationship and that That learning environment in which great things can happen. Trust has to be established first. Communication has to be established. I participation community. All of these things happened in the first few days so One of the things. I'm thinking i do eat on monday. In addition to seating charts and attendance and emergency procedures and blah blah blah blah is. I'm i've got my room set to go. I've spent a lot of time setting it up. I've got my walls covered in things from history. Controversial statements profound images of heroes and heroines from out throughout history and it is a feast for the eyes. Let me tell you. That's not not an accident that i try and give them an enormous amount of things to look at and on monday. I think after. I do all of the rigamarole with attendance etc etc. I'm just going to say.

"It's still good work but in terms of the student is not their best. So do you give them the because it's good work or do you give them the because it's you give them less than the because it's not the best they could do right. Are you holding students accountable to an unmoving standard of excellence or are you. Judging each student based upon their own abilities education can be one or the other an a number of other things too. But you know we really saying everyone needs to meet this standard or everyone needs to meet the standard of improvement based upon where they start at the beginning of the course you know a student who gets a c. Plus this is continuing that whole phrase of i can make an a minus feel like a slap in the face and a. b. c. plus feel like the congressional medal of honor that student who gets that c plus that might be the most hard fought. Well earned achievement. That student has ever as ever put forth now. There are students who can barely make it through the day. And i'm sometimes stunned that they even do knowing what i know about their home life or their struggles were their learning or their whatever and for them have achieved a c. In a class might truly be an amazing an amazing achievement. When really comes back to that question you are judging them by immovable. Standard or by a standard based upon each and every student that c plus might be reflective of the immovable standard but might actually be an a in terms of what that student is able to achieve. They may have hit it out of the ho- how to the park for themselves so again. That's something to think about something that i think about when i grade and when i set up my grade books this year has also been interesting an and this is the first year in which there's this new discussion going on. I've noticed Happening over the last few years discussion. That's growing amongst teachers around equitable grading equitable grading Meaning that you have to kind of understand that not. Every student is coming from the same place or is able to do the same work. Because of of the varieties of different lives that our students lead and so in that sense the question then becomes what What can i use my grade book to do to achieve equity amongst my students based under the acceptance of the idea that they might not all be the same place or have the same opportunities. So what has happened. Is that educators and myself being among them have come to begin to no longer use. Zeros in our grade books right. This is interesting. Is something that i'm doing again this year. There are no zeros in my grade book. Now what happens about if a kid doesn't do any work can don't they get zero on the assignment and the answer is no if a student doesn't hand in the work they don't get a zero. What do they get. You might ask in. That's a good question. The student doesn't hand in an assignment. There's a lowest possible grade that they can get in this case. I think the my department and i decided that we would. We wouldn't give anything less than a forty percent to a student and another schools and another teachers. I've talked to. I know that they've done is no no lower than a fifty percent which means that an f. is really a fifty or i'd rather than you know. Sixty two zero had been an f. in the past right vin as on one hundred ninety and a b. as eighty nine to eighty a c seventy nine to seventy and a d sixty nine to sixty in an f. is fifty nine. Zero means the f. One of the biggest grades you can get and It's also one of the most devastating raids even if a student receives zeros on assignments. It'll bring their grade down so quickly right. Those zeros reflecting enormous weight in a grade book and and so students can often feel like. There's no hope if they haven't handed in some assignments because those zeros are holding down their grade and it might make it almost impossible for them to pass the class and those homework assignments or missing assignments. You know taken individually might not be significant enough to represent the reason why a student should fail any course on its own. One thing does not necessarily represent a failure. One one absence One missing assignment. One failed test shouldn't be the reason why a student doesn't get holistic assessment of their skills and can pass a class based upon that because there. There's no sushi. No one thing that determines whether a student passes or fails it's a holistic approach and so by giving students forty percent for even if they do nothing may sound like. I'm coddling them low expectations. What have you but in another sense. It's also you know. As i says i see giving them the opportunity the hope you know. Activating that powerful sub-conscious motivator notice hope that can empower anyone especially a young person to continue to persevere and therein. Lies may be one of the most important lessons of education is perseverance. I learning from failure. Learning from hard work learning not to give up learning to persevere. These are lessons much more profound than anything. I could be teaching them about history from textbook. These are lessons that they'll carry forward with them long after the history class is over and so you know by using this forty percent in the grade book students. You know they can. They're not going to pass the class if they don't have any in they're going to get a forty percent. That's still a failure right in. A forty is as much of a failure as zero. So why don't make them the same but it gets them close enough that if they apply themselves and see that they can and hope that they can then they will no longer give up on themselves. I it's a way for me to help them to not give up on themselves. It's a way for me not to give up on them. Even if they have given up on themselves. I tell that to my students. I won't give up on you so don't you give up on you because it's easy especially these days for students to be overwhelmed and to give up it's just you know considering all that's going on in the world and considering all that i don't know about what goes on in their world..

"If you hadn't heard as a lot of haters a lot of people have opinions about justin bieber or about bt s and It's one way for me to connect with the kids and a fun. Lighthearted way the silly way because i i will tell them how much i quote unquote love justin bieber and they just laugh. They can't believe an eye joke. I play it off. I played really seriously. No no no. He's like he's my spirit. Animal right on. I'll i'll actually talk to justin across the room. You know and the kids will die laughing at this. When i you know i i. If students are doing their work all as it. Just justin what. Can i do get these students to do their work or just. Please help me right now. i'm not gonna make it And they'll just totally center them again. It'll take us out of any sort of stressor drama of the moment. When i when i called down the power of justin bieber upon our class and so i i i recommend. I suggest that you find some sort of silly thing to put into your classroom as well. Oh another another little another little silly thing i do. Is i on my desk. I have a framed picture very small five by five by five. Something like that three by five a framed picture of leonardo dicaprio and you might think leonardo dicaprio has nothing to do with history. Why is he in my classroom. Leonardo dicaprio was in the movie. Titanic and the movie titanic movie. A lot of these young people have seen or heard of her. Then they know leo from his other films as well. I mean guys international superstar. But i have a picture of young leo on his desk because he is hot. And that's how. I say to the kids and that and they find that to be so funny so silly and i just tell them how much i loved leonardo dicaprio. How hot he isn't that movie and they just think that is the funniest thing and so do little funny things like this. That aren't serious and And break the ice and make you make you into a comic relief right. I guess in terms of setting up your classroom. You have to think about your sitting up yourself right. You have to be able to to be the butt of the joke to be the silly guy to be the clown because it can't be all serious all work all the time and when you set up your classroom you wanna think about how what what type of. What type of mechanisms do i have around the room that i can use in a in a in a situation to kind of you know. Make it light hearted for the students to to make a fun environment. Even though i may be talking very serious things are asking them to do very difficult work. What what do i have around the room that can you know. Lighten it up a little bit. And so i have justin bieber. I have bts leonardo dicaprio so others. That and i have a number of other little item site around the room like have bobbleheads You know collected bobbleheads. From over the years. I have a bobblehead of of Harry truman a bottle head. A bobblehead of theodore roosevelt anna bobble head of donald trump. Even though i am go say i am absolutely not a fan of donald trump whatsoever. But he's part of the history and in a bobblehead donald trump is about the most trumpian thing. I can stand to have around me. So i have that right. I have that little bobbleheads. I have lots of little figurines. Mean nothing but they add color and they add interest to the room. And i even have an american flag tri folded ride solely in a folded up. You know like a properly folded. American flag and i have one of those because i inherited it from a relative and for that reason. It's very very important to me. But here's how. I use it right in my classroom to elicit students and to lighten the mood right to elicit responses for my students and to lighten the mood my classroom. I will ask them questions about. Us history and an. I'll pick up the flag in a hold to my chest. You know like like a near to my heart and If students start to pick up on some of the negative elements of us history. Some of the negative things in the american government is done or you know the you know social suffering through the economy. Anything anything that's really bad story. But i really want to dive deeper. And i wanna get a discussion going. I'll pick up that flank. I'll look really concerned. And i'll see them. Your this is unbelievable. I can't imagine that this happened and this this this makes me feel like america's so bad and and this is such a crime and this is such an outrage an atrocity who can defend my country. Who's who's going to stand by here and not say anything when these comments are being made right again. It's not about the student that made the comments about the comments themselves right and of course they get what i'm doing right. I'm i'm being being very dramatic overly dramatic and And is silly at the same time but what. I'm really trying to say. Who wants to debate this. Who can are af- who can offer the counter argument to this sad story. How might we see it in a different way. Which is what. I'm trying to get them to do think critically see things in a different way. So i i do that. I do silly things like that and it works. So there's a lot more than i can share about this. I hope that this. Maybe i walked through. We'll talk more about things that are in my classroom and how i teach my class.

"I put a mobile. I recommend that as well now. Let's talk about setting up a classroom when you talk about sitting classroom right. Obviously there's things on the wall that very important I put my desk in a corner. And i try and make it easy for me to access but not so easy for a student to walk over to right because i. I don't like to do a lot of work with a student at my desk right. And this is again my approach and there's a lot of teachers who do it differently and that's okay I do not like to have students behind my desk. That's why i like to keep papers. That's where i like to keep in my bag my lunch all that stuff. My my personal stuff. So i kind of angled in the corner so that a student would have to go really you know around to to get into it. I could see that. Or you know. And i can kind of keep them away from that And i have a. I have a podium right next to desk where i begin my class from an on. My podium I you know. I keep my attendance sheet psychic extra pence. I keep extra pencils for the kids. I keep the popsicle sticks for calling on students at random. They love the popsicle sticks. All let me now. Let me tell you And you know maybe we can talk about popsicle sticks another another episode but on the podium. I have a lot of other visual stimuli. Because it's all i got this. I got this from another teacher. Years ago i would say at least ten now And it was falling apart when i got it. I mean it's made of real bare. Bones would like in apply flimsy plywood and and bad nails so to keep it from falling apart. I started a slap bumper stickers on it and i started with I started with bumper stickers. That i got it fourth of july rally right in my town on the fourth of july the the local republicans and the local democrats show up and they put out a table near the parade route and they try and encourage people to join the republicans and the democrats and they give out bumper stickers. So high grabble right and i grabbed him from both tables and if there is a third party or a fourth party that shows up i grabbed those two right. I'm not not trying to be biased. Turning although just having bumper stickers from political parties has gotten me accused of bias. I don't know how. But you know. So i slapped those on there as a way to keep the podium from falling apart and also to kind of get kids into thinking that maybe there's a connection between history and government and politics and society right so And as the years go on these bumper stickers reflect past political campaigns that Most people probably wouldn't remember anymore candidates that you might not remember like john hickenlooper right. Who ran for president in two thousand sixteen right. I mean people don't make the primaries they still have bumper stickers and sometimes it's kind of interesting and message to a kid is like. Hey maybe i can run for. President are i could run for local office. I can run for town council right. So i've got bumper stickers political candidates but also got a messages about you. Don't use your cell phone. I've got messages like you know pro pro women messages you know like Feminism is the radical idea that a woman is a is a human being these types of things just a lot of color. A lot of a lot of messages that Hopefully good kids thinking and excited and maybe even asked me about right so The nature of my subject matter. Of course you know that. I deal with history. I deal with politics ideal society and current events and so in a if it sounds like it may be biased. Well you know kids have their opinions and their you know. The part of my job is to get them to express their opinions and to make them into arguments ryan and so the bumper stickers posters all the stuff in my rumor designed to provoke to elicit and guide opinions into well framed evidence-based critical thought. That's what i'm about so the desks. And here's a big one right when you sit what i'm setting up a classroom. I've tried just about every type of setup for the chairs and the desks in the room. And i've tried circles. I've tried islands. I've tried you know everything and what it has come to be my Most effective setup is just straight up. Rose right just rose. No islands. No curves no circles. No no large tables for just a desk and a chair kid in the data in the chair at the desk and doesn't sound exciting and it certainly is not creative. But it's a tool of classroom management. That i use and again let me say for like the third or fourth time on this podcast. This is just how i do it. It is not wrong to do it another way. And if it works for you a different way than great this is works for me right and it works for me because oftentimes i find. It's less distracting if the kids are in rows and it leads to less Less fees for the students to just pop up and walk around the round the room right which can totally disrupt not only that student but a number of other students. Somebody gets up and starts walking around the room right. There are times. I want them to work together. There are times. I want them to work alone. There are times. I want them to listen to me. There are times. I do want them to get up and walk around the room but i want to be in charge of those times. I wanna be able to orchestrate to manage the that movement. And i have found for me to manage that movement of my students. It works best for me to have them in straight up ropes and so. I've put my desks into. I think i have that five different rows of about six desks. perot maybe. maybe they're six rows. Actually because i've got something like thirty seven desks in my room right now. I certainly hope. I don't have thirty seven students but if i do i'm ready for that and so That allows me to move as a single. You know thought body moved through the rows without them being able to move your easily through the rows and keeps them feel kinda looking at a certain point and i do a lot of instruction from the front of the room And i'll talk about how. I structure every class in another podcasts. Until you won't lead you through. How i do a whole class right now but i do have routines that i follow and And this this desk set. Up is one way that i maintain classroom management The other thing is that. I have by the door. Right of this is of course Exactly catty corner or directly diagonal from my desk right. The front door is is on the opposite side of the room diagonally from or catty corner from my desk. And my coding where i often you know will will be positioned if i'm talking or making a whole class message now. The reason for that is because above the door. When you walk in. You don't see it but when you turn around it's right there above the door. I have my boy band posters. that's right. I have boy band posters in my room. me You know middle aged white male has boy band. Posters have have justin bieber. I have Let's see. I have five seconds of summer and i have a s bts. And i think. I have one more i forget. Now why do. I have boy band posters above the door in my room Because it's silly because it's stupid because it gets the kid's game giggle And of course. They have an opinion about this right because justin bieber..

"She up there on the wall. And of course. I have maryland scattered around the room in a number of different pictures and postcards as well because i consider her to be of historical significance as well on i would explain than marilyn monroe of course was a movie star. Married to arthur miller. Joe dimaggio had an affair with john kennedy with robert kennedy and And made a huge huge impact upon the social history of the united states through her films and her iconic imagery. And i would say that if you were to look at pop icons today like madonna or britney spears or miley cyrus. They're all channeling. The original maryland in some way shape or form. That connick blonde was really her invention. That is being carried for today. And that's something i would tell a student. That's why i put her on the wall. But i also explained that she may have played the ditsy blonde but in fact she was one of the smartest actresses in hollywood and one of the highest paid actresses as well and she would often use the sexism hollywood to her advantage. Would you know she might be discounted in the minds of men in hollywood big producers. Who might nothing. She understood what was going on but she was very savvy very smart but she played it very very silly so that she could be underestimated and i thought that i think that's a very important way for a maybe a young girl or adolescent teenager to understand that you know while the world may be run by certain rules. It doesn't necessarily mean that you can't use those rules to your own advantage. Even though you may be a male dominated situation so maryland is on the wall but another figure that appears repeatedly in my classroom is of course malcolm x. and facility because of course his enormous importance in history and the fact that he's a often left out of most history books and that in that absence at black erasure is something that i think is some maybe more understood today than it was twenty years ago when i started but malcolm x. is definitely one who needs to be understood for his criticism his advocacy and his activism. And i have him all around the room. So another thing that i've got and go through all the images because i have i have bumper stickers and postcards and photographs of you know charles lindbergh and the lusitania so i won't go through hall of the images on the wall but One thing that. I do have which i recommend for all teachers noggin. I'm not telling you what she gotta do. I'm just telling you what i do. And i recommend this because it's been a very valuable thing to me very personally and professionally valuable. So as i was unpacking in setting up my room. The first thing i do i did is that i i. I took out all the photographs. That i have collected over the course of twenty odd years of teaching and i collect photographs from my students. I asked them for photographs of them specifically at their prom. I say you don't have to take a fancy photo. You don't have to pay for a photo but if you give me a photo of you is what i tell my students if you if you give me a photograph of you dressed up so nicely at your prom junior usually junior but sometimes senior. Excuse me the junior prom picture. I always so grateful. Because i would be able to to keep it and remember you years after you've graduated now that's really important understand because if you have not taught you you have to send that students will calm and students will go and and and sometimes leave and come back and visit you and i guarantee you won't remember them. I guarantee you so many faces so many students come through your room and leave and and it's just it's impossible to remember them all now. This is why. I collect the photographs. Because i can remember them that way. You know especially because the ones who want to be remembered we'll give me their photo and and i write their name and i ride the year th. They gave it to me on the back so that i can remember them and i do. It's it's quite amazing actually and And a lot of stories come flooding back from these individual photographs of students who've given me their photos over the years And i put them on the wall. And i'd probably got about two hundred or three hundred at this point And some are some are with like twenty kids in him. Some are just one child one one young person and And i put those on the wall behind my desk i. They've all so they've got my back. That's that's kind of what. I tell the students that these are the kids. They've they've stayed with me. And i would love any child who wants to give me their photograph to give it to me because i if they want me to remember them. I wanna remember them. And that's a bond that that that's a legacy and that's i think more of a legacy than most teachers can realize because they're not. I'll tell you this right now. They're not gonna put your name on the building. They're not gonna put a wing devoted to you when you end this crazy career with the last day you teach the last day you walk out of that building. That's it in a couple years after that they won't even remember the utah there anymore. Sir swear it's it's i mean there might be some teachers who remember you but you know two or three years down the road. All the kids will be gone. Who you taught and there won't all the kids who are in. That school won't even know that you were there so your legacy is really the students. Your legacy is really in the students that you remember in that. Remember you and there's going to be a lot more than remember you than you remember them. Let's just natural right because there's there's thirty some odd kids or more in a class you're going to teach five six classes a semester You're gonna you're gonna see a couple of hundred kids before five hundred kids a year if you teach a lot. Maybe you join two hundred kids a year but multiply that by twenty years you talking some big numbers right and there's only one of you and there's a lot of them so i put those pictures on the wall and it always is a walk down memory lane. It always floods me back memories. And i can't believe i can't. Oh and gosh. It's been ten years since i saw that person. That's that's important because it reminds me of how far i've come as a teacher and how much time has passed and how things have changed ride. It's easy to get just caught up in the in the unbelievable avalanche. That is the daily life of a high school teacher. Things happening constantly coming at you and after a while you can handle that but if you don't pause and take stock and step back and see the larger context you might forget about all the lies that you're involved with all these people whose lives are at this moment in front of you and it's an important moment them right. Data lessons is an important time. A young person's life had you are part of that experience. They will not forget. So you know it's helpful for me not to forget so i put a couple of things about myself on the wall. You know i. I have obviously my students pictures but i put up. I put up Medallions from long distance races. That i've run i've done if i've done some running. I've done some triathlons in my time. I just to stay fit. And i put those on the wall just so if could ask i can tell them something about me right. I don't like to spend a lot of time in class talking about myself because nobody came here to learn about me. They came to learn about history. But you know if they ask about. Hey what's that all about. I can tell me i did. I did this traffic lawn. it was cool in that. Maybe that that sparks a little more of a connection with a kid. So i put some things about myself on the wall Something else that. I put in the room. I have a mobile ride a hanging from the ceiling and has absolutely nothing to do with history but it hangs from the ceiling and everybody notices it it adds it adds motion to the room. It adds it adds another focal point for their is when they come in and it creates The crates drama creates It creates art in the center of a room. That isn't really devoted art although we do talk about so.

"Me you know that you want to have everything set up in advance. You wanna be thinking about the long term thinking about the short term the first days the first routines the first communications the first handouts these all these things are what keep teachers awake at night. But if you're a veteran of this of this a craft the new probably have established a pretty good first day routine and a classroom setup that works for you so this is just my set up. This is just how i do it. And i wanna make sure that everyone understands that. I'm not telling anybody that they have to do it. This way that my way is not the best way. This is the best way for me. And that's the really important understanding about teaching. Which i think a lot of people especially politicians don't really understand. Is that you know. There's no one way to do this. And we always hearing about how you know. Teachers need to do it. This way And that's usually a politician looking to get votes You're talking about the evils of teachers and the evils of schools. And that's just that's fine for them to but I think if you've ever spent five minutes in a classroom you realize there's no more many many ways. There's one way to do this thing. And that's why teaching is an art and every teacher is themselves an artist so for me. This is a the way. I have come to do it over the course of twenty plus years. I was actually. I think this is my twenty second year in the classroom. I'm starting my twenty second year in the classroom while and the things that that. That's something. I was thinking about today as i was setting up my room because i was putting up things on the wall that i've collected over the years and i realized my says that was a long time ago that i did this or i'll i'll get into details of how my mind was reeling from the passage of time As i was setting up the classroom that i think is maybe a healthy part of any teachers for preparation for the new school years that you start to think about. What have i done before. And how long has it been. That i've been doing this. And why do i keep this. And should i keep doing this. Same thing so This is This is the the school year episode three. I'm really glad that you're here and today we're going to be talking about setting up the classroom so I i have a philosophy about setting up the classroom. And that if i anyone who walks into a classroom this is this is my philosophy. Anyone who walks into a classroom should know within about ten seconds. What is being taught in that classroom whether or not. There's a student in there or not. It should be obvious from the layout of the classroom. The things that are on the while the things that are visible immediately upon entering the room. Just what goes on in that room right now. Me sound obvious. Obviously if i were to walk into a chemistry classroom it would be very different than if i were to walk into a spanish classroom or an english classroom math classroom based upon what i would see in this first ten seconds and so with that being my guiding philosophy. I try to give lots of lots of hints. Lots of clear communication about the fact that i am a us history and a government economics teacher might teach the eleventh and the twelfth grade in social studies. I teach history. Us history to the eleventh graders. And i teach government and economics to the twelfth graders and so the walls of my room reflect that focus the layout of my room reflect salat about who i am as a teacher in the way i approach what i teach for my students based upon what i know to be an effective way to manage the classroom and that you know setting at the classroom is really understanding classroom management which i know too. Many new teachers is often one of the things that new teachers worry about the most. How am i going to handle thirty. Plus students to adolescent students in a room for fifty five sixty five seventy five minutes however long it may be for you and to a new teacher. That can be very daunting to veteran teacher. It's like okay. Here's what we're going to do that after that. We're going to do this and after that. We're going to do this but to a new teacher. Classroom management is essential because it allows you to lay out a structure and allows you to form a A means of communication and a way of maintaining attention and behavior in a room that could easily go all over the place. Because you never know what. Teenagers will do so When i walk into my room all righty see on the walls. An enormous number of visual stimulation Stimuli in i put up pictures. I put up postcards. I put a bumper stickers. I put up you know buttons. I put up a mobile hanging from the middle of my room. I have huge posters and photographs and and jackdaw dov pictures from history and and questions and art and all kinds of stuff right and that is to excite a young learner. That this is not just. Open your book and fill in the blank and listened to the rid video. This is an actual place of stimulation of curiosity of of learning new things that you might not know in having questions asked that you might never have asked before so i start with that by by creating a space and environment in the room that invites students to look more to to to think about and maybe laugh about and be awed by what they see pictures and in words in questions so You know if you were to stand in the middle of my room you would see. Obviously there is a big whiteboard. This comes standard in many classrooms. There's obviously big whiteboard up in front of the room. And that's of course where a lot of you know. Things are going to change and be be added and and written up but all around. That whiteboard are posters. And i have. I have a number of different posters. That i put on the wall and some of my favorites would have to be mohammed ali. I have more than i think. More than five. Different images of muhammad ali scattered around my room. Some are big posters of him fighting in the ring and others are are just small postcards of him. You know in a statement that he made his. The man is ultimately endlessly quotable Mohammed ali is a great example of of something that can turn it onto history because they might think histories all about names dates and places. But hey here's mohammed. Ali heavyweight fighter heavyweight champion of the world and antiwar activist member of the nation of islam and a critic of the united states. The man was definitely a historical man of historical importance in many many ways And that would be something that i would explain to a student. If they were ever to ask. Why is muhammad ali on the wall. But you know. I don't really get ashville. Why muhammad ali's on the wall. I think a lot of a lot of my students come in understanding why muhammad ali is on the wall of what i do get asked a lot about is why is marilyn monroe on the wall and i have a huge picture of marilyn monroe in front of the room above the white boards. Smile and out of the kids With her beautiful face and she's just up there smiling way in the kids always asking a why is.
