This Year's Jargon

differentiated intruction
paradigm shift
multiple intelligences
common planning
common assessment

Thanks to Mrs. T. for composing this list. Here is your mission:

When speaking with colleagues, particularly when administrators are present, toss about these terms as much as humanly possible. Do so with absolute confidence, so the administrators think you know what they mean.

When you're convinced they believe you understand all this stuff, go to the classroom and teach the kids, secure in the knowledge that the administrators won't get in your way. If they actually understand all the buzzwords, they'll be happy you appear to be using them. If they don't, they'll avoid you so you won't expose their unconscionable ignorance.
