"One of the things that I’ve written a lot about in the past few years is the importance of engaging kids in causes that they care about.  The way I see it, students are more likely to be invested in school when the work that they are doing matters.

 

To that end, I’ve had the kids in my enrichment period working on an Anti-Bullying PSA over the past few weeks.  Here’s our final product:"

Charles Fischer's curator insight, October 2, 2013 7:00 AM

Mistakes are always valuable, but somehow in the school learning process, students are encouraged to avoid mistakes. Our grading process, for example, basically starts with 100 and subtracts for mistakes. We should celebrate mistakes as a powerful teaching tool. After all, we rarely learn from our successes.

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown | Baker Tech | Scoop.it

The shutdown of the United States government began today. With no plan of action from either political party, there is consequently no easy lesson for teachers to share with their students.

Any discussion of the current Congressional stalemate naturally begins with a civics lesson about political parties and the separation of powers. The questions today from our students, however, quickly centered on issues of blame and health care.
