Show and Tell: Assorted

What we’re enjoying in class this week:

  1. Halloween Awakening (really thematically rich if you feel like digging; stop motion, natch.)
  2. Ooga Halloween Trick or Treat Video (prime Halloween prank that stays well within the bounds of good taste; not stop motion, mercifully.)
  3. Trinity Lateral Miracle (fifteen laterals, thirty-nine yards in one play; announcer at the end calls it the greatest play in all of division iii football, totally without irony.)
  4. Jen Stark’s paper sculptures (i’m a sucker for this kind of geometric art; kids didn’t mind it either.)
  5. English Pronunciation (“If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.”; i’m also a sucker for junk science stats like that; select a few stanzas, have your kids try to read ’em aloud.)
I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. I can’t really qualify it, which frustrates me, but it seems somehow like a sweet prank. As far as Halloween pranks go.
