Don’t Throw out Baby Macbeth: Common Core says think bigger, better, and beyond the book | Roz Linder.com | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Common Core is akin to telling you that students have to learn how to play tennis or piano. They are expected to know the game. The game? Deconstructing text. Because in the real world you need to be able to understand text, create text, and interpret text. The Common Core does NOT state that you cannot teach poetry, fiction, or narrative nonfiction. What it does say is that you must teach ANALYSIS. Kids need to know how to deconstruct text. All text. English teachers lament all across the nation that they cannot teach their poetry unit as is. And they can’t. We, English teachers, no longer just teach content. We teach skills so that kids can tackle any content. If you are just teaching the content of books as the center of your curriculum, shame on you.

Interesting Visual Featuring 6 Instructional Strategies That Sticks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Interesting Visual Featuring 6 Instructional Strategies That Sticks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

I love these witty quips that ASCD intermittently share with the education community in the form of visually appealing infographics. The recent visual they shared in this regard relates to the topic of issue number two of Education Leadership magazine. Instruction That Sticks is a beautiful visual that features 6 quotations from leading thinkers and educationists. The quotes , different as they are in their scope, each speak to one of the essential areas in teaching methodology.

6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom

6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

In traditional learning, teachers map out academic standards, and plan units and lessons based around those standards. In Genius Hour, students are in control, choosing what they study, how they study it, and what they do, produce, or create as a result. As a learning model, it promotes inquiry, research, creativity, and self-directed learning.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 30, 10:40 AM

Without forgetting the relational nature of learning and teaching. Is it accountability or responsibility? Or is it a combining both? Judith Butler speaks about giving an account of one's self which is the way we respond and are responsible for learning.

10 Examples & Non-Examples Of Differentiated Instruction - TeachThought | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Differentiated instruction, the tailoring of educational experiences to meet individual learner needs, is nothing new. Hardworking teachers have always recognized the diverse needs of students and adjusted their instruction to account for them. Through one-on-one coaching sessions, small group activities, individualized course packets, reading assignments, and projects, teachers are addressing a range of student levels, interests, strengths, weaknesses, and goals in their classrooms today.

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons

A Straightforward Guide To Creative Commons | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

The internet has brought a significant amount of grey area to the world of citations and bibliographies. Students need to understand how to distinguish relevant, reliable material from the wasteland of trash that otherwise litters the internet. How do you cite a tweet, or other social media post? Is that considered ‘reliable’? And when it comes to sharing that information – especially on the internet- things get even hairier.
