Using Assessment to Create Student-Centered Learning

Using Assessment to Create Student-Centered Learning | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Assessment is key to creating a more student-centered classroom. Before proceeding, though, I want to clarify what I mean by assessment. I don't mean testing, nor do I mean grading. Unfortunately this term (as well as other terms like data-driven instruction) has been hijacked to mean more testing and knowing students only in terms of their test scores. We know this is unacceptable and does not meet the needs of all students.

Ten Things Master Teachers Do

Ten Things Master Teachers Do | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Master teachers—those who have figured out how to get students to do and be their best, how to simplify the complex, how to look forward to their jobs each day, and how to create lasting memories in the hearts and minds of students—once struggled as new teachers, too. The following 10 practices not only helped master teachers over the initial hump of inexperience but also sustained their ongoing success.

These 10 practices can positively influence your success as a teacher. You'll notice that the most successful teachers in your school are following these rules on a consistent basis. Get busy becoming "that" teacher—the one who makes a difference; is admired by students, parents, and coworkers; and inspires students to meet their fullest potential.

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've led many teachers and administrators on classroom walkthroughs designed to foster a collegial conversation about teaching and learning. The walkthroughs served as roving Socratic seminars and a catalyst for reflection. But reflection can be a challenging endeavor. It's not something that's fostered in school - typically someone else tells you how you're doing!

Det er vigtigt at være sig selv bevidst om hvordan vi opfatter elevernes indsat for at blive bedre til noget, og ligeledes hvad det er vi rose og værdsætter. Er det indsatsen eller målet for indsatsen.

"Exciting classes interest students. These classes spark their curiosity. Sometimes, the learning here feels like play. A school may not be able to use these exciting ideas everywhere, but they should be used somewhere. If a school can't be interested in things that students care about, students will lose interest in caring about school."
