In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”

Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.

"What is it about bread? Bread is not for cats. Your teeth are not even made for eating it. It’s a ridiculous idea."

I stand by this.  Bread is not for cats.

Of course, neither is squash, and he loved that.

one of our cats chewed through my bag of bagels once. 

(via le-claire-de-lune)

It is increasingly clear that in this case he has no interest in eating the bread itself. He just wants to get the bag down from the top of the fridge, run around with it, disembowel it a bit, and then abandon it in the hallway in the middle of the night. In a perfect world he’d stash it under Snh-snh-snh’s bed, but for some odd reason he’s not allowed in the bedrooms unsupervised anymore.

    I decided to see if I could do this without anything that I’ve used to do Steve before, which ruled out all my navy blue clothes and the shield.  So here, have some pre-serum Steve:

    Steve does not appreciate being laughed at.

Dear ECERS:

You are impossible and I hate you.

No love,

A teacher whose rating period starts in three weeks

PS: Real multicultural education is not done by checklist.  Neither is any kind of education, really, but I dislike the implication that if I just hang up a diverse enough array of posters my teaching will suddenly be culturally responsive.  

PPS: This is especially true since you say I can’t hang up too many teacher-created resources but also have to make sure my wall displays show diversity across at least six different dimensions.  That is a lot of posters to display at eye-level while still making sure that my display is at least 50% child-created AND 50% individualized work AND at least 30% related to our current study AND all displayed at eye level AND …
