A dabble of English, a boggle of Physics, a tweaking of Art.

1. English.

Thanks to HB teaching colleague Amy for this comic. http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling

It’s funny AND helpful. Warning though…a lot of the stuff on theoatmeal.com uses pretty salty adult language! Preview before you print anything for class use!

More English…

This could be a really interesting writing folio idea. Get the students to create a new word and do a written piece explaining the emotion that word expresses. To be fair, these made me sad.

My new favourite word.

2. Physics. My brain hurts after reading, but hey, who needs a University edumacation when you have a site like this?

Things like these always make me aware of how much I don’t even know I don’t know. I know a lot of things I don’t know, that is to say, I know the names of many things without knowing what they really are, and I know the names of some things, knowing what they are but not how they work. In related news, there is just so much that I am completely unaware of.

3. Art. I uploaded a pic of McMurphy and ran it through this very cool site, tweaking the psychedelics until I had a picture that I am sure Ken Kesey would have been proud of, if only he would focus! Art students will love the ability to get creative with pictures….
