It's troubling when the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future says that 46 percent of new teachers leave the profession within five years.

Writing to Learn: 3 Tips to Get Started - 0 views

  •  
    "When we give students writing assignments, the purpose is often to share ideas and demonstrate understanding. We have students write persuasive essays to demonstrate their ability to make and support arguments, or write answers to questions that we use to assess their understanding.

Planning for Engagement: 6 Strategies for the Year | Edutopia - 4 views

    Sadly, moments of full immersion are not the memories that most of us have from our years as students. It is clear that schools -- and learning -- are more powerful and effective when students are deeply connected to their work. What would it take for students to regularly experience the kind of engagement where they are fully immersed and "lost" in their tasks?
