Pupils Writing Memoir : A Great Literacy Topic by @Lit4Pleasure - 14 views

  •  
    "As you may have read, this half term we focused on the teaching of memoir.

    In our first week we discussed the genre using our genre-booklets and this created a buzz for the rest of the project. Focusing on the genre and why people write memoir allowed the generating of ideas to happen fairly quickly."

    What qualifies as "text" is shifting every bit as much as our ever-changing definition of literacy. This resource expands our definition of texts, relying on John Greene's central principals that stories are: a). about communication, b). acts of empathy, c). opportunities to think critically and thoughtfully, thereby connecting us with each other, and d). springboards to learn more about others, our world around us, and ultimately, ourselves.

    Apple in its next release of its iOS operating system for mobile devices will introduce a new feature called 'Emojification' that aims to make this new style of communication easily accessible to all. So, what does this mean for the language arts and how might the emojification of language alter the way in which we communicate.

Aligning Philosophy and Practice - nashworld - 34 views

    One of my foundational rules of classroom engagement is simply this: never be the first one to open your mouth and start talking about any topic. Twenty years in the classroom taught me that one. Never assume. Never take prior knowledge for granted. Listen first, then act. Never presume to know what the students in front of you are capable of. They'll show you if you are bold enough to listen.

Creating a Culture of Inquiry | Edutopia - 77 views

  • Inquiry
  • creating a culture of inquiry takes constant work. Teachers need to establish it from the first day in the classroom, and work to keep it vital throughout the year. Here are some important things to know about creating that culture, and some ideas that you might consider.

  • A culture of inquiry will not happen overnight, but the right climate for it is much easier to establish.
  • When we make a change or set an expectation for how a classroom will operate, we begin to affect the climate. It takes time for something to become a part of the culture
  • culture of inquiry
  • Scaffold
  • Questioning
  • Teachers should use a variety of strategies, such as structured protocols and question starters and stems, to support students in asking effective questions.
  • One great tool for building a culture of inquiry is essential questions that drive learning.
  • Rather than focusing on the answer, they should focus on the process of inquiry that begins when the question is asked.
  • we have to make sure that our assignments also mirror and honor inquiry
    • Do our assignments focus on complexity and justification?
    • Do we honor student voice and choice in these assignments? Are students allowed choice in what they produce and voice in what the assignment will look like?
    • Do we create assignments and assessments that allow students to investigate their own questions aligned to the content that we want them to learn?

  • A culture of inquiry can only become the classroom norm if there is commitment from all stakeholders -- parents, students, teachers, administration, and more. Simply saying that we are an inquiry-based classroom and doing an occasional inquiry-based activity is not indicative of a culture of inquiry.
