TPT 50th Anniversity book - page 13

Kathleen Harper about grading problem-
solving process skills (p. 424) will help me
revamp how I grade AP problem sets. But in
addition to the articles about demonstrations
and pedagogy that have always graced the pages
, there are some great newer features
like “WebSights” and “YouTube Physics,” which
didn’t exist (for obvious reasons) when I started
teaching in 1990. Dan MacIsaac and Diane
Riendeau do a great job of searching the web,
polling colleagues, and sharing great ideas from
the Internet. And even though I have been
teaching longer than my students have been
alive, I get great advice from Patricia Blanton’s
column, “For the New Teacher.”
Despite the fact that the entire catalog of
articles is available and searchable online, I still
love having my paper copies from 1989-2013.
They take up an entire shelf in my office, neatly
organized by year in clear plastic magazine
holders. I recently inherited my dad’s collection
s from the ’70s and ’80s. I know it isn’t
the traditional type of memorabilia from a
parent, but I look forward to curling up in
the recliner, flipping through his old
and remembering my dad and all the AAPT
meetings we shared together, from London,
Ontario, to the University of Maryland, Orlando,
Orono, Spokane, Chicago, and especially his
alma mater, Notre Dame.
