NASA - Do-It-Youself Podcast - 1 views

    Are you looking for a new approach to engage your students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics? NASA's Do-It-Yourself Podcast activity sets the stage for students to host a show that features astronauts training for missions, doing experiments in space or demonstrating equipment. We'll provide a set of audio and video clips along with photos and information about a space-related topic. You and your students may choose as many items as you want to include in your project and download them to your computer. Students may use the information we provide or conduct their own research to write a script for an audio or video production.

Good Teachers May Not Fit the Mold - Educational Leadership - 0 views

  • teachers' ACT scores exerted a larger influence on student achievement than did student poverty level, class size, and teaching experience combined.
  • Adequate knowledge of their content areas.
  • Rice (2003), who has reviewed hundreds of studies of teacher quality, notes that
  • ...28 more annotations...
  • "subject matter knowledge contributes to good teaching only up to a certain point, beyond which it does not seem to have an impact" (p. 37).
  • Good teachers must know their subjects well, but having doctoral-level knowledge of Freudian interpretations of Victorian literature, for example, doesn't really improve someone's ability to teach language arts to 8th graders.
  • Knowledge of how to teach their subject areas
  • They found that although content knowledge is essential, teachers who also possess strong pedagogical content knowledge are more effective than those with content knowledge alone.
  • strong pedagogical content knowledge
  • were likely to gain a full year more learning than students whose teachers had weak pedagogical content knowledge (among the bottom one-fifth of teachers).
  • common metrics for hiring and rewarding teachers are only weakly linked to student success.
  • Traditional licensure or credentials.
  • "little rigorous evidence that [teacher certification] is systematically related to student achievement"
  • Yet the study detected no before-and-after effects—that is, teachers appeared no more effective after undergoing the grueling certification process than before it (Clotfelter, Ladd, & Vigdor, 2007).
  • Advanced degrees.
  • "have found no discernible effect of teachers having a master's degree or higher on student achievement" (p. 26).
  • One possible exception appears to be high school science and mathematics,
  • Extensive classroom experience.
  • Yet on average, after a few years of teaching, added years of teaching experience appear to offer little guarantee of increased effectiveness.
  • teacher effectiveness
  • Belief that all students can learn.
  • Belief in their own abilities
  • Ability to connect with students.
  • School leaders must consider, then, which attributes they can augment and which they cannot.
  • reexamine the metrics, explicit or implicit, they use to select and compensate teachers
  • Being credentialed, being experienced, or holding an advanced degree is no guarantee of effectiveness
  • know how to teach
  • teacher's dispositions and attitudes
  • teased out through interviews and observations
  • analogy
  • quality of their teachers can be the difference between academic success and failure.
  • Verbal and cognitive ability.
