Cursive writing? Should we teach it or not? Many states are still requiring cursive writing be taught, but it is not part of the Common Core. This infographic provides information about why it is important that students learn cursive.

Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat leerlingen lesstof beter opnemen als ze handgeschreven notities maken. Gewoon leren schrijven en het ontwikkelen van je handschrift blijft dus van groot belang.

20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts

20 Reflective Questions To Help Students Respond To Common Core Texts | AdLit | Scoop.it

"The Common Core Standards represent a shift in the traditional instruction of English-Language Arts in the average American public school K-12 classroom. While there are several differences in the new standards, one of the most interesting (in addition to the expectation of technology integration) is the trend from literary to non-fiction texts."

This could be used as a great anchor chart for students to see when when reading text and preparing to respond to the text. Although the title says 20 questions I count 21 questions on this visual, questions that are require critical thinking skills, questions that may be used with a variety of texts (as required by Common Core).

The questions are in three categories (information below quoted from the article):

* Within the text - summaries, sequence of events, conflict/resolution, etc

* Beyond the text - Inferencing, implicit ideas, evaluation, etc.

* About the text - Author purpose, author style, characterization, etc.

The post also relates the areas to Bloom's Taxonomy. You might also look at the question relative to Depth of Knowledge.

The graphic (above) provides a nice visual to help understand the difference between project based learning and traditional units with a final project. Where are the differences? Traditional units have lectures, activities, quizzes, a review, an exam the project. With project bases learning you begin with an event plus a rubric and then move through a series of activites that help students reach benchmarks. Project based learning is authentic learning.

More information on this can be found in the post.

Good visual as to how we should be shifting learning.
