David Hain's curator insight, November 19, 2013 12:28 PM

Thought leadership is a discipline, one that demands many things aside from the knowledge: you must be seen, known and trusted – and then you have a shot at being recognized by your niche as a thought leader.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 19, 2013 12:30 PM

It is definitely not enough to be an expert. We have too many of those. We need beginner's minds which opens up many possibilities rather than just the one in an expert mind.

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL | Assistant Principal | Scoop.it

"In any given classroom, there are invariably learners who simply don’t connect with what’s being taught. Lectures can be easy to tune out. A textbook can feel dense and boring to finish. Even a video can pose limitations for learners with sight or hearing difficulties. When these are the only options available, some learners are bound to fall behind without requesting special support, while others will surge ahead. Differentiation is one way to bridge this gap, and another is adapting the curriculum to suit all learners, instead of adjusting it to support the needs of each one."

Rebekah Hackney's curator insight, November 12, 2013 1:04 PM

The reasons to include multicultural (MC) literature  in your classroom are numerous. Culturally Relevant Pedagogy is all about "building bridges" between cultures and putting the curriculum in the context of student's cultures. MC Lit allows teachers to do this at every level of development. This allows teachers to help students see themselves reflected in the literature being read in the classroom. Using MC Lit makes school relevant to their lives and helps motivate them to succeed.
