We did not have the digital technology set up, but used tables for the entire time I taught at Stony Creek. I found not all teachers liked it. Others complained it was too noisy. I found the students worked together and accomplished a lot.

The Science Behind Classroom Norming

The Science Behind Classroom Norming | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Blogger Todd Finley explores the value of Classroom Norming to help learners.

 

Celebrated teachers like Jamil Odom, Ron Clark, and Rebecca Mieliwockicreate transcendent classroom cultures year after year. It’s not magic, it’s science.

 

Our modern understanding of social norming occurred in 1936, when Muzafer Sherif studied the autokinetic effect, a phenomenon that occurs when people observe a stable light inside a dark space. After time passes, everyone "sees" the light move. Sherif, on a hunch, asked confederates to enter the room and offer a contradictory perception. The participants, without realizing they had been tricked, revised their original judgment to align with the confederates' stated perception. Later, even when participants re-entered the room alone, they continued to believe that the confederates' perceptions were correct.

used properly, testing as part of an educational routine provides an important tool not just to measure learning, but to promote it."


Standardized testing is in some respects a quest for more rigor in public education. We can achieve rigor in a different way. We can instruct teachers on the use of low-stakes quizzing in class. We can teach students the benefits of retrieval practice and how to use it in their studying outside class. These steps cost little and cultivate habits of successful learning that will serve students throughout their lives.

Dance Of Human Evolution Was Herky-Jerky, Fossils Suggest | Christopher Joyce | NPR.org

Dance Of Human Evolution Was Herky-Jerky, Fossils Suggest | Christopher Joyce | NPR.org | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

A trio of anthropologists has decided it's time to rewrite the story of human evolution.

 

That narrative has always been a work in progress, because almost every time scientists dig up a new fossil bone or a stone tool, it adds a new twist to the story. Discoveries lead to new arguments over the details of how we became who we are.

 

But anthropologists generally agree on this much: A little more than 2 million years ago in Africa, the human lineage emerged. Smithsonian anthropologist says the conventional wisdom is that much of Africa changed about then from forest to dry savanna. Our ape-like ancestors had to adapt or die, leave the forest and embrace the savanna — and in doing so, they evolved into something more like us.

 

"The traditional package of traits," Potts explains, "including elongated legs, large brain, culture, a whole variety of traits, were thought to have come together with the origin of the genus Homo. We're saying no, that's not the case."

 

Potts is curator of human origins at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. He and his collaborators, of New York University and of the Wenner-Gren Foundation, have analyzed fossils discovered over the last few decades. They say the human animal didn't come together quite as quickly and neatly as commonly thought.

 

"What's different," Aiello says of this new narrative, "is that the whole package that makes us human — long linear bodies, very large body size, delayed growth and development for the kids — didn't evolve at the same time."

 

Instead, these scientists say, traits that make us human arose separately, in a herky-jerky fashion.

Do you wonder what the difference is between student-centered learning and teacher-centered learning? If you do check out this post. They provide a list of 15 examples of each.

Below you will see three sets of examples. The first one is student-centered. The second one is teacher-centered.

1A. Being clear about how to do well in your class

1B. Being clear about how you will promote, measure, and celebrate understanding

2A. Handing students a rubric or scoring guide

2B. Collaborating with students to create the rubric or scoring guide

3A. Helping students master content

3B. Helping students understand what’s worth understanding

Many of the changes are small tweaks, but they will take time and effort. If one of your goals this year is to create a more student-centered learning environment you will find many ideas in this post.

I rarely assigned homework. It seemed counter-productive and counter-intuitive. The exception, if can be called homework, were projects which engaged students and their parents at home. This provided an untapped resource, excited students and parents, and was highly successful. I always provided more time for these projects so they did not work against learning.

Good piece, but need to consider also; this country is not really catering to multi-cultural group.  But, we should learn from their examples - we in Australia definitely moving towards over-educating, with even prep losing its play-based approach.  Also worth noting - the teacher in the classroom has the biggest impact on whether or not the students will learn - effective teachers=effective learners.

New Teacher 101: Surviving your first year in the classroom

New Teacher 101: Surviving your first year in the classroom | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Post written by Jenna Kleine, a ClassDojo Thought Partner






Year one is exciting! However, enthusiasm can only get your so far. My advice? Be consistent. Whether you have a few weeks or a few days before school starts, it’s time to make some decisions that will allow you to establish a consistent classroom environment.


7 Questions to ask yourself when planning routines and procedures — and advice from a middle school science teacher…





1. How will students enter the classroom?


Always have students line up outside of class. This might sound elementary, but it allows for separation between hallway behavior and classroom behavior. As they enter greet each student and say their names! This might be the only “hello” they receive today.


2. How will I get students’ attention?


A bell, a countdown, or a clap is typical — try to change it up! Perhaps you can ask the students for ideas and have a competition for the best attention grabber. How about this… TD4Wbutton :)


3. How will I begin each day?


Students should be able to enter class and get started on whatever routine you have in place without any reminders. Always have the assignment up on the projector for students to see. I do a quick-write at the beginning of each class. Three minutes to write, one minute to share with their partner/group, then students are randomly called on to share with the class.


4. How will I be calling on students?


I love using ClassDojo’s randomize feature to call on students. This keeps the students who raise their hand too much at bay and the shy students participating. Teachers sometimes use popsicle sticks to call on students at random, but ClassDojo is much more engaging and interactive for the students.


5. How will I reward excellent behavior?


ClassDojo! Personalize positive behavior awards based on characteristics you want students to strive for. However, make sure you have an incentive program in place to keep students working for ClassDojo points. For example, the first 5 students to reach 20 points gets _________.


6. What is my discipline policy?


Most schools will have a discipline policy in place that you must follow in terms of detention, etc. For my own classroom I give a warning using ClassDojo. If the behavior continues after the warning, communicate with the parent. Send them a ClassDojo message! Or give an old-school phone call. Parent-teacher relationships are key for student success.


7. How will I end class every day?


Exit tickets! Put a prompt up on the projector and give each student/pair/group a piece of paper. Students must turn in “exit tickets” on their way out the door.


“Moment of Zen” (cred. Jon Stewart) — I end each class with an inspirational quote. I turn off all of the lights and put the quote up on the projector. Students must be silent for 20 seconds before they can leave. Namaste. :)





Whatever routines and procedures you put in place, stay consistent. Your stress-level will thank you for it.


Good luck!

If you are looking for a visual that looks at the new rules surrounding carbon emission and at what each state may have to do and how others are perceiving the new regulations you should check out this visual. You may scroll down the page (first click through to the site) or you can view it as a slideshow.

This visual would be great to share with students as it is designed as a cartoon (with many panels). It is easy to understand and describes where carbon emissions come from (in the US) as well as the impact this may have on countries outside the US.
