Bucket List Item Achieved: See Todd Rundgren Live #ToddRundgren #CelebratingDavidBowie
I have been waiting my whole life to see this artist. Todd is an artist most people I know haven't even heard of....But I have spent my whole darn life trying to see him live.
I almost did a few years ago, but then Covid happened to ruin live music for a while.
Then I almost did AGAIN, but lost my Driver's Licence and couldn't get into the venue, even with many forms of alternative identification.
Last night, at the beautiful Goodyear Theater in Akron, I finally saw Todd live. He was putting on a show to celebrate another great, David Bowie. (My pup is named after David Bowie, so you could say I'm a fan of his, too.)
I cried a lot. First, I cried because I was FINALLY seeing Todd and it just felt cathartic and like a release of so many feelings I'd kept pent up. I won't get into details about why it was so personal and important for me to see Todd, but it was...And it was wonderful.
And then I cried because David Bowie is dead.
Anyway, here's Todd covering Bowie's "Life on Mars", live in Akron, Ohio. If Celebrating David Bowie is coming to your town, definitely go check this out. It was such a great show!
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) announced today the launch of National Enrollment Week from October 10-14, 2022. Throughout the week, state and local agencies across the country will share resources and information about nutrition services, breastfeeding support, and eligibility to support and enroll more families in the WIC program.
“WIC is committed to helping families by providing them with the education, resources, support, and tools that will empower them to make the best decisions when it comes to keeping their children healthy all year long,” said Stacy Davis, Health Equity & Community Partnerships Manager at the National WIC Association. “Our focus is healthy families and that looks different for each family.”
The WIC program provides:
WIC serves to safeguard the health of low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk. WIC is administered by 89 state agencies in 50 state health departments, 33 Indian Tribal Organizations, the District of Columbia and five territories (Northern Mariana, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands).

Fall is here, and I, for one, have mixed feelings about it.
First, the arrival of Fall means that Cedar Point season is sadly wrapping up for the year. Only a few more Halloweekends left before the Ohio cold sets in and the fun comes to an end. We go every weekend, so this change is a big one to our routine.....and it means that I'll be walking 10 less miles per week. (We average 8-10 miles of walking per visit.)
Also, while I absolutely love warm sweaters, cozy blankets, and hot coffee, I don't really enjoy the cold. I tend to become a hermit during the colder months, so it's easy to pack on a few pounds of winter weight. To combat this, I try and cut carbs some and find ways to remain active, even while freezing.
Some of my favorite Fall/Winter activities, weather permitting?
-Hiking! We have some absolutely fantastic trails here in NE OH, and during nicer weather, they are quite scenic and beautiful, no matter what the season.
-Indoor Water parks- We are the "Black Sheep" of the family, so because we're not included in Holiday festivities, we have started our own tradition so the kids aren't sad on Christmas. We go to an indoor waterpark where it's a balmy, 84 degrees at all times. This is awesome because water parks are great fun, but also because swimming and water aerobics are wonderful exercise, no matter your age!
-YouTube workouts-When all else fails, YouTube has every and any kind of workout you could possibly want, from intense to easy and gentle. This is something I rely on while snowed in, which happens quite often here in my area.

Do you love the Smurfs?
I know when I was a little girl, back in the "late 1900s", the original Smurfs series was a regular watch in my home. My brother and I both enjoyed watching these little blue creatures outsmart the likes of Gargamel. Makes me a little misty eyed thinking about it. Times were so much simpler back then in the olden days....
Anyway. The Smurfs are still beloved by so many, and they've gotten some updates over the years. Their sassy, modern look is easy to love, while still bringing pangs of nostalgia to my Smurf-loving soul.
The Smurfs have a new home on Nickelodeon! Join these beloved blue characters as they go on ALL-NEW adventures that push the charm, absurdity, and humor of the original series to even greater heights. Smurf we go! This volume contains the second 9 episodes of season one in a 1-disc set.
Smurf village gets more exciting in the all-new DVD The Smurfs: Season 1, Volume 2, featuring new girl Smurfs; Willow, Blossom, Storm, and Lily! Join the Smurfs as they keep their village safe from the wizard Gargamel, accidentally turn themselves into babies, and more!
The purpose of student assessments is to gauge students' knowledge and understanding of a concept. Depending on the content of the course, you may want to give students various ways to show their knowledge. Whether you use impromptu quizzes, a rubric, or a combination of all three, there are many ways to make assessments valuable and productive.
Assessing student understanding
Student assessments are a powerful tool for teachers to measure student learning. By identifying areas where students struggle to understand concepts, instructors can use these assessments to help students improve their understanding. These assessments are beneficial in small classes and settings where students actively participate. However, they can be costly and require a qualified observer. There are technology-based assessments that teachers can use, like i-ready. But, is i-ready dangerous? There are testimonies from users of this platform; clearly, it all boils down to how safe and discreet this platform is with its user's information and results. Teachers could use this kind of assessment to enable educators to view, assess, and react to student work faster than they can with conventional exams.
Providing Students with Options for Demonstrating Knowledge
The best way to make student assessments valuable and productive is to give them options for demonstrating their knowledge. The evaluation should be responsive to the needs of the students and the teacher and should include a variety of ways for students to show what they know. The assessment should also be an excellent way to stimulate the student's thinking. For instance, if a class focuses on the study of the Renaissance, the students may submit a newspaper article or a concept web. A PowerPoint presentation or simulated radio interview with an expert could also be part of the assessment. The student would submit these materials, and the teacher would evaluate them based on a three-trait rubric.
Creating student assessments that are useful and productive requires teachers to develop goals and standards. From these goals, they can design learning targets. Then, they should determine what evidence students need to demonstrate their understanding of the curriculum. Finally, they should also develop lesson plans that help them achieve those learning targets.
Using Impromptu Quizzes
Impromptu quizzes are a great way to gauge whether your students understand a concept. They can be used during class discussions or one-on-one interviews. Using these types of activities in the classroom can help you know the student's needs and help you tailor your lessons accordingly.
Providing Feedback to Students
One of the best ways to make student assessments valuable and productive is to provide feedback to students. The key is to give feedback in a way that encourages students to improve. It should be focused on and related to long-term goals. For example, after a mile race, the coach yells out split times and feedback to the athletes. Teachers can provide feedback to students through video, audio, or text on technologically based assessment platforms. They can also connect kids with resources to advance their abilities, participate in online conversations, and send families immediate feedback about students' learning. Assessments used in K–12 education have been changed by technology. There are existing platforms for this kind of assessment, like i-ready. But, you may ask, who invented i-ready? Who is responsible for this evaluation? Well, the thing is, it doesn't matter who, but what matters is the result they have come up with. They have the potential to standardize and streamline the administration process, as well as provide various ways in which students and educators collaborate extensively in learning.
It is also essential to give feedback at the right time. The timely feedback can help students refine their cognitive processes, confirm their understanding, and develop effective strategies. It can also engage students in metacognitive processes such as self-regulation, which are essential for effective learning. In addition, feedback that is specific to the learner can help improve motivation and effort.
Providing Students with a Rubric
A rubric is a valuable tool for assessing student work. It helps students evaluate their performance more honestly and improve over time. It allows students to check off the square in the lower left-hand corner that reflects their level of performance. The teacher then uses the court on the right side to evaluate the student's work. Ideally, the two judgments will match. This can be discussed if a discrepancy and a better performance standard are established.
Another benefit of rubrics is that they help students understand what is expected of them. As a result, individuals can better organize their approach to the assignments and feel less anxious overall. They also provide a clear description of what quality performance means.
