I’m so thankful that Hedgehogs and Foxes published this piece.
I’m a designing mad man this week! I had a few students who didn’t quite get the concept that citations for a rule statement should be ordered by weight of authority (usually) and that subsequent memo sections should maintain that order. So, here’s another visual aid.
I think a new series is in the works. Just Another Visual Aid.Citation-Roadmap-Visual
I crafted this in PowerPoint and saved it as a pdf for my students. You are welcome to use it, but please credit me.Rule-Statement-Funnel
Need to randomize a list, such as your class roster to assign groups? Use excel and the =RAND() formula!
- Add the list of names to one column.
- In the first cell of the next column, add the forumla =RAND().
- Copy the formula down the column. (Double-click the fill handle.)
- Each name now has a random number.
- Sort the column with numbers. It doesn’t really matter whether you do it by largest or smallest number.
And VOILA! Your list of names are now sorted randomly.
Now in print.
