Doug Johnson is great.  I love his sense of humour and this list of t-shirt slogans is fabulous.

Some of my favourites:

“to err is human, to arr is pirate”

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.”

“Books – the original laptop.”

“They say I have A.D.D. but they just don’t understand. Oh Look! A chicken!”

“Mirror, mirror on the wall… What the **^&%^&% happened?”

“Education bridges the gap between your ears.”

“With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.”

“If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?”

I used to keep a list like this in the back of my planbook of funny sayings, supposed report comments and things.  Just for the end of ‘those’ days.  We all need to laugh a lot more!

Life is NOT a dress rehearsal, lets make it fun while it lasts.

Have a good weekend!!

(oh and add any more gems in the comments!!)

CORE have produced this series of videos looking at key issues in education.  I like this one from Sharon Freisen looks at the difference between Inquiry as a disposition and Inquiry as a Teaching Strategy.  This is a fundamental difference!

ALL those in the school need to be Inquirers and Learners.  Sometimes this will be together and sometimes it is more focused on teacher professional learning.

… thanks Jane for the link!

I am sure that this is photoshoped – but how often is this a sentiment we express?

The Silent generation, people born before 1946.

The Baby Boomers, people born between 1946 and 1959.

Generation X, people born between 1960 and 1979.

Generation Y, people born between 1980 and 1995.

Why do we call the last one generation Y? I did not know, but a caricaturist explains it eloquently below…Learned something new!
