The Testing Camera - YouTube - 1 views

    "Learn more about this film and download the free companion poster here: http://fablevisionlearning.com/blog/2... Peter H. Reynolds, creativity advocate and best-selling author and illustrator, and co-founder of FableVision Learning, has created a new animated short called The Testing Camera - a whimsical poke at high-stakes, standardized testing and a reminder that real assessment is as easy, and - at the same time - as challenging as getting to really know the gifts and talents of every child. "We've gone through a very test-centric decade which, in my opinion, has consumed a lot of time, energy, and resources," Reynolds shares. "Many teachers have had to adhere to new mandates and measures that require a 'teach to the test' approach. Public schools redirected funding for art, music, theater, libraries, field trips, and more. It's a discouraging picture for those trying to reach all children in creative, engaging ways." Reynolds, who is known for his books encouraging creativity, The Dot, Ish, Sky Color and The North Star among many others, penned this whimsical and poignant story about a young girl named Daisy who, dismayed at her art class being canceled, nervously faces her turn with the "Testing Camera." This huge apparatus snaps at her with a few blinding flashes of light. Weeks later, her father's reaction to the test results surprises Daisy in a most wonderful way. "This is my gift to educators to remind them to follow their instincts and remember why they got into teaching in the first place: to see the potential in every child, to nurture those emerging gifts and talents, and to change lives," Reynolds shared. The film was produced by FableVision, the transmedia studio in Boston founded by Peter and his twin brother, Paul Reynolds, author of Going Places and the Sydney & Simon series. The Testing Camera was directed by John Lechner with music by Tony Lechner, and animated by a team of young animators interning at Fable

5 Steps to Perfect Projects - 0 views

  •  
    tudents need to know what they are expected to accomplish when they are working within a project based unit. When they know where they are headed and what you expect from them, they will always do their best plus a little bit more. At the same time the teacher should understand how to manage the unit's progression from the beginning through the end.

YouTube - Primary Assessment - Formative Assessment 1 - 2 views

  •  
    "At Two Waters Primary School, teacher Julia Turner uses formative assessment in a Year 6 revision lesson on light. First, she works with pupils to determine their learning intentions. Then, using mind mapping, she collaborates with her class to develop success criteria. Her pupils are given responsibility for their own learning. They work in small groups or pairs and choose their own resources. They often leave the classroom to use the library and ICT suite. "

Formative and Summative Assessment in the Classroom - 4 views

  •  
    Assessment is a huge topic that encompasses everything from statewide accountability tests to district benchmark or interim tests to everyday classroom tests. 3 In order to grapple with what seems to be an over use of testing, educators should frame their view of testing as assessment and that assessment is information. The more information we have about students, the clearer the picture we have about achievement or where gaps may occur.
