美国大学升学作文命题趣谈 - 白露为霜的日志 - 贝壳村 - 7 views

  • You have just completed your 300-page autobiography. Please submit Page 217. (UPenn, 2009)
  • 这篇作文的目的是看学生对自己的人生有没有什么规划。任何大学都希望自己的学生和校友成功,而有雄心有计划的人成功的可能性会更高一些。这个题目并不难写,如果你想当导演,第217页可能是写你在奥斯卡奖颁奖仪式上焦急地等待结果;如果你想从政,第217页可能是写到你作为新科参议员视察飓风袭击后的灾区的情景。写什么都可以,你的想象力是唯一的障碍。如果你说我不知道我想做什么(这也常见),那就编一个,没人会找你算账的。最后别忘记提到你在宾大接受的教育在你成功中起到的作用,这样你就给大学一个录取你的好理由。
  • Using the quotation below as a jumping off point, tell us about an event or experience that helped you define one of your values or changed how you approach the world.     "Some questions cannot be answered./ They become familiar weights in the hand,/ Round stones pulled from the pocket, unyielding and cool."
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • 如果你想知道普林斯顿到底喜欢什么样的人,从这个题目应该可以看出点端倪 – 有思想而且执著的人。这首诗到底在说啥,怎样才能起跳?有些人可能有这样的经历,他看到了一件事,读了一本书,有一个哲学问题等等,以后就一直放不下。因为挥之不去,就变成了他的一个负担,坚硬而冰凉。没有?那你太幸福了,也许你就不该写这个题目。如果有这种经历,你或许能写出一篇很出彩的文章,展示你的思想的深度和敏锐度。要注意的是重点不在这个事件的本身,更重要的是后来呢?它是怎样改变了你的,而你又做了些什么呢?
  • Stanford students possess an intellectual vitality. Reflect on an idea or experience that has been important to your intellectual development.
  • In short, we are looking for the thinking student who has a passion for learning.
  • 斯坦福想看到的是不但有好奇心,能在饭桌上进行热烈的讨论,而且能进一步把它变成一个研究课题的学生。如果学生拥有对扩展自己智能空间的激情,能量,主动性和真正的兴趣,这个题目不难。这些特质一定会某方面展露出来的

    Does it only work on PCs...I tried to run this on my mac but can't get past the home page; when I go to create, I am asked to download Microsoft SilverLight, which I do. Then, nothing else happens.

    The site allows you to choose or upload an image to go along with the tag cloud generated.

    Similar to Wordle but now you can make them into images!

    I genuinely want to ask: what is the educational point of 'word clouds'? To me there are useful as 'word searches' which have to be the almost useless. How have I got this so wrong?

    To Gerald Carey - As an English teacher, word clouds are a great tool. Taking text from literature or even from your own students' writing and placing it in a word cloud builder allows students to find theme words because the words used the most often are bigger than the others. I've used my students' quickwrite entries about a chosen piece of text and shown them that they are all thinking through the literature the same way. It's pretty eye opening for an English class!

  • We have linked our destinies, not only among ourselves across the globe, but with our technology. If the theme of the Enlightenment was independence, our own theme is interdependence. We are now all connected, humans and machines. Welcome to the dawn of the Entanglement.
  •  
    Somehow I haven't been aware of the Edge before. Seems sort of like a space for a text version of TED Talks. From Daniel Hillis's piece answering the question of 2011: "How has the Internet changed the way you think?" "We have linked our destinies, not only among ourselves across the globe, but with our technology. If the theme of the Enlightenment was independence, our own theme is interdependence. We are now all connected, humans and machines. Welcome to the dawn of the Entanglement."

PIPEDREAMS - Seeing with New Eyes - International Perspectives on Trust and Regulation in Education - 16 views

  • This year, I was asked to attend as a Canadian Teacher Representative, along with Ontario Ministry Officer, Colette Ruduck and our Ontario Deputy Minister of Education, George Zegarac.
  • the theme of “Trust and Regulation”
  • my Canadian values of equality, diversity, safety and choice
  • ...21 more annotations...
  • high degree of trust for teachers, administrators and district decision makers
  • Our regulations are meant to encourage equality and diversity, choice, opportunity, innovation – fundamental values in our society.
  • In contrast to many of the other countries represented, our Canadian context was unique in that the regulations (organizations, federations, policies, curriculum) imposed actually tie in Trust and Relationship building and partnerships as key factors to increase capacity building with a wide range of stakeholders.
  • We need our profession to be respected, which includes paying us well, treating us fairly, supporting us with resources, nurturing our learning and leadership opportunities
  • systems of education can achieve and can be highly ranked without the use of formalized testing
  • We need to feel safe to make mistakes because we too are learners, especially in a profession that is changing so drastically in the 21st Century
  • We need to feel trusted and with that, we want our skills, our education, our talents and our passions to be respected so we -together – can become the creators of our own pedagogies
  • these passionate and experienced leaders agreed that such tests don’t work when used to rate, or punish teachers
  • can even sometimes do more harm then good
  • First and foremost, teacher voice needs to be heard and respected
  • such tests are not always authentic
  • As principals, we need to empower our teachers and community
  • the importance of the teacher/principal relationship came up over and over and over
  • Trust – allows me to teach in my style, developing my own curriculum
  • I wonder if there is a correlation between that supportive, trusting principal and the fact that we have incredibly dynamic teachers here, at Van Leer from all over the globe
  • We too need to think different because change can start with us
  • By sharing and reflecting our learning openly and even by sometimes being vulnerable and asking for help and challenging the status quo
  • We need to make our voices heard by be socially active
  • we need to recognize that our learning environments are changing and are very different from how we were once trained and educated
  • We need to remind our leaders that we are not just teachers of academics but we teach the whole person
  • Many of us struggle, without supports – to help impoverished families, students with mental health disabilities, learning disabilities, students that speak a different language, large class sizes, violence, inequalities

    The conference in Jerusalem, Israel that Van Leer hosts each year  is intended to encourage professional dialogue among educators, academics, representatives of the Third Sector, and policymakers from diverse areas and places in Israel and abroad.    This year, I was asked to attend as a Canadian Teacher Representative, along with Ontario Ministry Officer, Colette Ruduck and our Ontario Deputy Minister of Education, George Zegarac. With the theme of "Trust and Regulation" at the center of our discussions, it did not take long to realize that my context, as a Canadian Educator, a parent, and a student -  was one of privilege and opportunity.

    Martin this looks WONDERFUL but I can't figure out how to use the THEMES or create my own. I've emailed the author for help. Any advice? Thank you!
  •  
    When I found it and played with it, I didn't use the themes. I just played with the templates, photos and holiday info. I have tried now and have not figured it out. Sorry.
  •  
    Thanks Martin, perhaps the author will respond. I love the program, it's very easy to use, but would like my students to use it, and would be a LOT simpler if they could do a single year's worth of calendar via the themes - which appears to be the point - great find in any event!
