    “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ― Steve Jobs

    CEL 5 D+ to Ponder:
    CEC4 Student status

    Teachers and students demonstrate positive teacher-student and student-student relationships that foster students’ well-being and develop their identity as learners. Patterns of interaction between teacher and students and among students indicate that all are valued for their contributions. Teachers create opportunities for students' status to be elevated.
     
    A Little Humor:
    -How long is a piece of string? Twice as long as half of it!
    -What do you get when you make humorous soup? Laughing stock
    -Why couldn't the bike stand on its own? Because it was two tyred
    -Want to hear a joke about a piece of paper? It’s wearable
     
    -Chuck Norris didn’t just pass the SBAC State test; he roundhouse kicked it into oblivion. Now, it’s called the “Chuck Norris Assessment of Awesomeness.”
     
    Reflection:
     

    How to 'overcome' fear -Trevor Ragan

    Fear can be helpful when we're in danger but sometimes it gets in the way of learning opportunities. Trevor Ragan digs into fear - outlining what it is, where it comes from, and (most importantly) how we can work to put it in it's place. Trevor Ragan is the founder of Trainugly.com, a free educational website designed to unpack and share the science of learning and development. He spends his time with thought leaders and researchers from the worlds of psychology and developmental science, consumes their research, connects the dots, and shares it with anyone that will listen. He's worked with professional and college sports teams, Fortune 500 companies, reentry programs, and in hundreds of schools across the country. These workshops are designed to help people understand and apply important principles of development in order to become better learners.
