1.) I decided to go down the rabbit hole, I decided to do more research on one of this week’s authors Bob Fecho. While I found it neat that he went to Arcadia, I also appreciated seeing the consistency in his research. In particular, I found it awesome that Fecho describes the larger complexity of the classroom and the opportunities for change. Personally, I feel like this was cool to have the wobbly message reinforced throughout multiple mediums.
2.) So today, I guess I am going to have a yoga theme Select 6 this week. Perhaps with this week’s readings, I feel a special sort of connection. In my undergraduate education, I took a year of Tai Chi. From this experience, I feel an awareness of the concept of “wobble” that is described in this week’s. Perhaps given my life circumstances, I need to have a reminder of growth and self love-this is why I have selected this article.
3.) Again, keeping in mind the yoga theme this week, I find this website pertaining to incorporating yoga into the K12 classroom. I will be the first to say, given my own educational background, I may not have the same understanding of the classroom such as my classmates. However, from my own experiences, I enjoy the connections that this website tries to incorporate with the classroom. From yoga poses for teachers to lesson plan ideas, I believe that this website is a fantastic find for any educator. (Another great example of Connected Learning!!!)
4.) Sadly, given the events in Florida, I think this article about the power of Yoga is very important. With the focus on finding positive solutions to aggressive emotions, this article describes how yoga helps teenagers find non-violent solutions to their issues. Given the description of wobble this week, I feel that this is an unfortunately timely addition to my selection.
5.) I went down the rabbit hole on the Iloveteaching. When I was searching through it, I found teacher2teacher. O.M.G. All I can say is that it is the epitome of Connected Learning and Teaching.
6.) And last but not least… (thanks to my classmate Kristin…) I am going to link to one of her posts… In a recent post, Kristin describes how she attempted to play using an unknown recipe. For me, how she describes “progression”, and how to be reminded of how her students are learning. This awareness of one’s self and one’s limitations is wobbling. Thanks for the application!
