The Common Core Standards demand that the building of knowledge through reading text plays a fundamental role in those disciplines.
In history and social studies, the analysis of primary and secondary documents is a core part of building knowledge. In science, the analysis of reference materials, direct experimental result, debate obviously integrated with other data, but reading sufficiently complex text at the heart of it. To give you a sense of how different this is from what happens today, we have evidence that in kindergarten through 5th grade kids read informational text 7% of the time.
In addition, content area teachers lack knowledge in the literacy demands of their discipline. As a result, we have many adolescents who cannot read and comprehend text in different disciplines—we must prepare teachers to ...
Many educators are experimenting with the idea of a flipped classroom model. Find out what it is and why everyone's talking about it.
This infographic was created by Knewton using Column Five Infographics. (Knewton has recently partnered with Pearson on a Big Data and personalized instruction initative.)
Of particular interest are the results and outcome claims. Credited sources include Jeremy F. Strayer of Ohio State University, The Flipped Class Conference 2011, Education Week and others.
Strayer is the author of: The effects of the classroom flip on the learning environment: A comparison of learning activity in a traditional classroom and a flip classroom that used an intelligent tutoring system, a book published by Ohio State in 2007.
I'm very interested in the promise of intelligent (automated) tutoring systems.
When it comes to the Flipped classroom, the teacher remains essential. It's the presentation and differentiation possibilities that change.

Things have changed , old methods and pedagogies are no longer relevant. The teacher-controlled learning where deconstructed and reconstructed information is presented in a highly formal and standardized classroom settings becomes very obsolete. The urgent questions we should , as educators , ask ourselves are : what is it that made this huge transformation in learning ? and Do we need a new pedagogy to better enhance learning ?
Join this educator-only webinar to learn how to apply this innovative and effective teaching strategy with none other than the expert himself, Dr. Lodge McCammon, Curriculum and Contemporary Media at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation. Dr. Lodge will be joined by leading North Carolina teachers from a variety of content areas and grade levels who are exploring how flipped learning works in the public school classroom. We will spend the hour discussing best practices, answering questions and sharing practical resources in order to make it possible for any teacher to start flipping the next day. Oh, and we'll even flip the webinar!
How do you personalize learning? First you need to know what personalized learning is. Here is a new site that provides resources, research, models, examples, and stories. This page provides a toolkit that can help your organization begin personalizing learning to meet the needs of all learners.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the framework in personalizing learning for all learners. UDL also guides the design of the Personal Learner Profile[TM]. It provides the UDL lens to select the appropriate tools for the Personal Learning Backpack[TM] that helps them access information, engage content, and express what they know. UDL guides how Personalized Learning meets the Common Core.
Check out the chart that compares Personalization, Differentiation, and Indivdiualization. You can download the chart and a report that explains the details of the chart. The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments can help you determine where you are in personalizing learning. These are free for you to download.
