Haunted by a Cartoon

This cartoon stresses me out.  I totally believe in the point it is making, but have no idea how to fix it.

Fave Blogs

I've been exploring the possibility of changing how I teach Algebra 1.  I am bored with the worksheet notes and worksheet homework.  If I'm bored, I could only imagine how the students feel. My main concern is sacrificing cohesiveness and understanding for engagement and novelty.  Certainly don't want to do that!  I've found several blogs written by dedicated Algebra teachers who take the enormous amount of time to photograph and share their interactive notebooks.  I'm intrigued.  This might be the answer for me.  Maybe, but will we spend too much time cutting, gluing, and coloring? I haven't decided yet.  Anyway, here are several of the blogs that share awesome resources.

Finally a contributor?

I have been an internet stalker for quite some time.  I regularly search twitter, pinterest, and blogs in hopes of finding resources and ideas for my classroom. I'm hoping to use this blog to reflect on my needs, wants, successes, and failures on my journey to effective teaching.
