Your BAG of Teaching SECRETS
Hi again, and thanks so much for the quick reply!
I was wondering if I might ask you about something directly... My email is rgarner1289@yahoo.com... I'm stuck at a hotel til 4 today (just finished up at a conference and don't fly out til later) so if possible and you have a few minutes this afternoon, I'd love to run something by to see if you might be interested...
Thanks, and hope to hear back from you soon!

Your BAG of Teaching SECRETS
hi! I was just wondering if you happened to create any keyword data analysis for 2011-2012? Also, do you have a blog? (I noticed the poster below had referenced one but I was unable to find anything online)
Thanks!

Hi!

I have not been able to update the analysis, because TpT no longer releases the data!

I do have a blog - http://reachthenteach.com. My wife and I just had our first child, so you will find far more there than teaching & learning content!


Sincerely,

Derrick

I just recently purchased a packet for 6.EE. Do you have a .doc file I could use? I'd like to modify some for some of my lower students. Thanks. My personal email is walsersn@gmail.com if you can.

Hi Derrick, :)

Thanks for letting me know. If you have a second, could you tell me how you make and upload your thumbnails? I'm having a bit of trouble getting started on TpT. A few glitches I'm trying to work out! Anyway, have a great day!

Hi Derrick. I read your post on a blog today about keywords searched on TpT. Do you think searches have changed over the past year and a half? I was curious if you've done anymore research into it since then. Thanks so much for all the great info!

Hi Paula,

My hunch is that the trends I identified in July 2011 are still evident - just perhaps even more so!

The data I analyzed back then, though, was released by Paul Edelman to all users. I do not remember seeing any updated releases since then.

I do want to update the analysis each year.

Thanks for your question!

Derrick, I saw your posting on TPT. My only suggestion would be to add a graphic or two to the handout. It adds color!

I trust you will take time to rate one of my freebies as well.

Thanks for the feedback! I do have a watermarked graphic in the background, but it is too subtle!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Founding faculty member and administrator at public charter high school. Taught Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Engineering (Creative Problem Solving).

MY TEACHING STYLE

- Language mastery is the key to content mastery. - Language (how we use words and sounds to communicate) and discourse (verbal expression in speech and writing) are more important than vocabulary (knowledge of words).
