Chasing Content – January 2011

It’s time to click links, dust off some old posts, and explore what Silent Cacophony had to offer us last year at this time.

You can read all of the posts from last January . . .

or just these personal favourites.

Know Your History: Season 1 – It’s hard to believe that this year I will be launching the third season of this monthly radio show. If you missed the podcasts of Season 1, you can download them all here in one easy zipped folder.

A Proud Goofy Foot – As a kid, I taught myself how to skateboard and it felt more natural for me to ride goofy foot.  I’m not the best skater in the world, but I enjoy it, and am proud to be a goofy foot rider.

The What-If Activity – Here’s a good activity for you to try with your students. It is one of over a hundred such ideas you can find here every week for Teaching Tip Tuesday.

The Promise – I believe in soulmates. I wrote about it after watching (500) Days of Summer last year. It was refreshing to reread just now. I just wonder about when you can actually “know” that you’ve found “the one.” Does it have to be immediate? Or can it take a lot longer than that?

To Call or Not to Call – I was driving to work last winter and I noticed a car in the ditch. I thought about calling the police or the radio station to report it, but I didn’t. I wasn’t sure that was the right decision. What do you think?
