Though rain was not an issue at all today - the sun shining brightly - these brightly colored umbrellas (from a print acquired in Seattle) caught my eye. Interestingly, as I recall, most folks in Seattle prefer their rain jackets rather than the umbrella as a 'tool' to keep them dry with the drizzly and seemingly constant moisture.

Working on some tech tools for facilitating Marzano's effective teaching strategies in an upcoming workshop and find I probably have 'too' many - there is a need for balance when working with alternatives, especially for new learners. Overwhelm can be a big turn-off! So I will choose a couple of 'umbrellas' and focus on those specific tools so we can 'drill deep'! :) Naples, FL


  1. I recognize those umbrellas. :)

  2. Yes - so often workshops are about tools and not about digging deep. It's really a case of less is more.
