Am I the only one who makes stuff and then never gets around to using it? I did this over Christmas Break with a set of Truth Signs. I learned about Truth Signs while reading Inspiring Active Learning by Merrill Harmin. You can actually read the section of the book about Truth Signs for free at this link. (Truth Signs are introduced at the beginning of chapter 4 on page 50.)
I haven't decided how I want to use these next year. But, I think these are all important truths for my students to take away from my classroom. I have a tendency to get jealous of teachers of other subjects because it seems like their subject matter allows them to engage in more life-lesson style lessons in the classroom. I'm going to try harder next year to teach my students more than just math.
