While Clark's advice is focused primarily on classroom teachers, it can easily be adapted for first-year administrators. No matter the position, everyone has things they wish they had known their first day on the job, and mentors and others in your professional learning networks who have been down that road already are likely willing to share those stories. Perhaps the most universal piece of advice shared by Clark, however, is to make sure as much as possible that work doesn't go home with you.
By thinking like a coach, educators can provide students with more robust feedback that can help them to better tackle a problem the next time around, while also focusing on what they did right. And administrators can do more than just encouraging classroom instructors to adopt the approach by implementing it in their own daily line of thinking.
Student data privacy has been a major sticking point for many amid the increasing digitization of the nation's classrooms — and for good reason. Parents don't want their child's identifiable data sold for use in targeting advertising or for other purposes, and adults have a hard enough time trying to prevent identity theft without the still-being-established identities of their children open to potential compromise, as well.
Also, you read the thing about watercolor portraits from the last tweet right. I do them when the mood strikes me and I feel compelled to, not really because anyone wanted me to. Thus, I’m not really prone to taking requests. https://t.co/joMtcbTyGC
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
