As I was searching the web to collect data for several new blog posts I am drafting I came across this humorous video on “American Education=Too Many Acronyms” from YouTube.  I found it so amusing and true that I want to share it here on my blog.  I will have some of the posts I am working on up this week and next week.  These posts that are soon to come will have great useful stuff for teachers and educators of all disciplines and backgrounds, so be on the look-out on my blog.  I will also inform you via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn when the new posts are up. In the meantime enjoy watching this video and sharing it with others.  I’m sure we all can relate to it in one way or another. Laugh away!

Join me at my session for the 2013 TESOL International Conference, "ESL Instruction: Developing Your Skills to Become a Master Conductor", March 21 10:00 AM in room C144. My presentation focuses on listening, speaking and pronunciation music teaching techniques incorporated with ESL teaching. This is not your typical music/ESL presentation with chants and songs. Be prepared to use your vocal chords, diaphragm, lungs, mouth muscles, and arms like you have never used before in pronunciation, speaking and language instruction. Learn how to use music conducting skills in the language classroom to better facilitate language acquisition. Learn how to use music performance skills (vocal and instrumental) to better facilitate language learning. Be prepared to laugh and have fun. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

  1. Too funny, I just did a blog post about this as a first year teacher. The acronyms are a bit much.

    • I agree the acronyms are a lot. I have taught in several states. When I moved from one to another, I had to learn all new acronyms. I have noticed even schools and school districts within the same state have their own acronyms as well compiling to the mass to learn. I have always thought there should be an acronym cheat sheet provided to new teachers at a school. Maybe other places have done this. The schools I have worked in have not done this. Have you ever seen an acronym cheat sheet?
