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 teach 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.

5 Ways to Integrate Science Process Skills in Lessons - 14 views

  •  
    Integrating the science process skills within your science does not require drastic changes. It simply involves making the process of science more explicit in lessons, investigations, and activities you are already using in your curriculum. The science process skills are the methods used for helping our students understand how we know what we know about the world in which they live. This often means going beyond a science textbook and supplementing the core-content within textbooks. It also means using your course content as a means for exposing students to the real process of science.

      5 Creative Ways to Use Flip Cameras in Science and Math - 27 views

      •  
        The Flip camera is great for all types of projects in science and math - at any grade level. Flip cameras are small handheld video cameras that can record 30 or 60 minutes worth of video. They connect to a computer with a USB plug that "flips" out from the side of the camera. The benefits of these cameras include another means for assessing students understanding of concepts beyond worksheets and tests. Besides a scienceer's record, the videos provide a digital record for parents and administrators to show a student's successes or areas which need improvement.

      6 Online Project Based Learning Resources for Science and Math - 27 views

      •  
        When students are engaged in learning science or math which is personal to them (real world problem solving), they become more engaged in the learning process. Project based learning situations in science and math increase opportunity for students to internalize and make connections.

      Stimulating Critical Thinking through a Technological Lens - 19 views

      •  
        Stimulating critical thinking using technology has the potential to create more in depth understanding of science and math content by students when engaged in learning activities which integrate in-class and on-line technology resources. Technology tools support stimulation of both inquiry-based and critical thinking skills by engaging students in exploring, thinking, reading, writing, researching, inventing, problem-solving, and experiencing the world outside their classroom. This is accomplished through learning content through the lens of video to multimedia to the internet (Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement, NCREL, 2005).

      Project Based Learning Viewed Through a Digital Lens - 19 views

      •  
        Often we search for meaningful ways to integrate digital technology in project based learning activities given to our students. We also would like our students to develop a thorough understanding of the concepts underlying the work - after all this is the purpose of the project. Giving students the opportunity to complete and present their project through a digital lens has one great advantage - student engagement. This in turn causes students to develop a more in depth understanding of concepts.
