This concept has very real implications for how students and faculty alike view information literacy skills and knowledge. #ALA #ALA_ACRL #infolit #blendedlibrarian

Tony Meehan's curator insight, Today, 3:03 PM

This model describes 4 levels of mastery using measurements of competence and consciousness.  As novices, we are in a state of “Unconscious Incompetence”, where we don’t recognize what we need to know.  As we gain knowledge and experience, we transition to “Conscious Incompetence,” where we are aware of what we do not know.  Developing further, the third stage is “Conscious Competence,” where most of us remain.  We have considerable ability and knowledge at our craft, yet it is not automatic; we must still think and act deliberately.  The fourth and final stage is mastery, or “Unconscious Competence”.

I loved hearing this: "Traditional grammar instruction isn’t effective. Period." As a middle school teacher for over 18 years, I have never found grammar instruction particularly useful. Sure, kids would benefit from knowing more, but they rarely retain grammar rules unless they are in the "teachable moment zone."

There is considerable evidence to indicate that in schools teachers work closely and cooperatively with each other that students will as well. My experience was there was little of this. What there was were edits about the School manager's favourite fad.

21st Century Critical Literacy: Is Traditional Reading & Writing Enough?

Is traditional reading and writing enough to be considered literate in the 21st century?

Check out this slideshow from Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano which asks us to "rethink our notion of critical literacy." She also suggests that we "develop authentic learning and assessment opportunities {as we} upgrade and amplify our curriculum."
