This “nerdy” handshake by two Ivy leage basketball players now in the NBA is making rounds. One player opens a book,the other flips imaginary pages, they put on their glasses and put them in their pockets -now ready to play. I like this in many ways. I'm going to study and learn and then put up my glasses and get out there and DO. (My paper or pavement post a few days back.)

Arne Duncan Supports Using Student Portfolios To Evaluate Teachers? | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…
There is a move to have blind evaluation of student arts portfolios in Tennessee as a means of evaluating teachers. Arne Duncan endorsed the view of using this method of teacher evaluation.
