For Teachers, Middle School Is Test of Wills - New York Times - 1 views

    • Lisa Keeler
       
      There is a dearth on the focus of preparing teachers for Middle School education.  A difficult and challenging age, but one where a good teacher and caring adult can make all the difference.
    • Lisa Keeler
       
      The challenges of teaching Middle School - so much of the "teaching" falls outside of classroom bounds.
  • Brooklyn: How to snuff out brewing fistfights before the first punch is thrown, how to coax adolescents crippled by low self-esteem into raising their hands, how to turn every curveball, even the biting insult, into a teachable moment.

  • “We’re really in a malpractice kind of environment, where we’re preparing teachers for elementary classrooms and high school classrooms but not middle-grades classrooms,” said Peggy Gaskill, research chairwoman of the National Forum to Accelerate Middle-Grades Reform, an alliance of educators, researchers and others seeking to improve middle school education.

      This is a great, modern-look at the fuddy-dutty librarian misconception.  I wish my Uni had had all the neat online/texting/widgets that librarians use today!

21st Century Students need 21st Century Teachers | Once a Teacher…. - 0 views

  • I’m recycling a couple of videos that I have posted in the past, mostly because I believe that they’re worth watching again.  These videos – the original higher ed version of “A Vision of Students Today” by Mike Wesch, the spin-off , called “A Vision of K-12 Students Today”, and “The Networked Student”, created by Wendy Drexler‘s high school students  – bring to mind many thoughts that I find both challenging and encouraging.  Hopefully you will, too.

      A lengthy British document discussing why and how to improve student's writing.  Yet, thankfully the execuitive summary on pages 10-13 are nice and short! I thought the conclusions on page 12 provided some good food for thought!

      I think that this article provides a wealth of information pertaining to not only why writing skills are important, but what changes schools should implement to make sure that teachers are using best teaching practices. For starters, it shouldn't be assumed that all teachers write well themselves!

      I don't know if blogging is part of our students lives, but I certainly want to find out
    • Lisa Keeler
       
      Blogging is a fantastic tool for students who are creating a record of a project, particularly the Personal Project. Easy to share with supervisors, teachers and friends, easy to record ideas on the go - and best of all, no paper!
  • personalizing learning means allowing students to choose their own paths through the curriculum
  • t means connecting our expectations to students' passions and interests as learner

  • most schools and teachers have been slow to discover its potential through the use of the social web, interactive games, and mobile devices.

    Great to use for 21st Century Skills & Concepts and the BYOD initiative
  •  
    I don't think blogging is part of their social lives, but academically they like it. I've used it several times for projects, to share ideas, to recommend websites and they really know how to use it and take advantage of it.

    I just read this article and the whole personalized education makes a lot of sense.. it goes beyond diferentiation
