Mother World: splitting, integration & evolution in the mother archetype

Mother World: splitting, integration & evolution in the mother archetype | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Carl Jung speaks of the human soul’s “longing to attain rebirth through a return to the womb, and to become immortal like the sun” (CW5, para. 312). In biblical terms rebirth is associated with entrance into Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the holy city, as image of the holy mother.

 

Jung says, “the Old Testament treats the cities of Jerusalem, Babylon, etc. just as if they were women” (para 303). While Jerusalem is an image of the holy mother, Babylon is the unholy mother. In Jung’s words: “Babylon is the symbol of the Terrible Mother” (Jung, para 315).

 

From a Kleinian perspective, the infant splits the mother image into two primitive forms: a ‘bad and persecuting’ form and a ‘loving and gratifying’ form. These two representations are internalized and become part of the psychic world.... (Click title for more)

Great teachers want to work for great school leaders.

Great teachers want to work for great school leaders. | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Research indicates that students’ race and family income often predict their access to excellent educators. Low-income students and high-need schools tend to have teachers who are less experienced, have fewer credentials and do not demonstrate a track record of success.

 

"Our research shows that schools with great principals, who build strong, supportive instructional cultures for their teachers and hold teachers and students to high expectations, do a better job of retaining high-performing teachers, regardless of student demographics. So it stands to reason that great principals can also be a critical incentive to attract top teachers to hard-to-staff schools."

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts ~ Slate

Ed Tech Promoters Need to Realize We’re Not All Autodidacts ~ Slate | college and career ready | Scoop.it

by Annie Murphy Paul


"This is a very particular take on learning: the autodidact’s take. We shouldn’t mistake it for most people’s reality. Productive learning without guidance and support from others is rare. A pair of eminent researchers has gone so far as to call the very notion of self-directed learning “an urban legend in education.”


"In a paper published in Educational Psychologist last year, Paul A. Kirschner of the Open University of the Netherlands and Jeroen J.G. van Merriënboer of Maastricht University challenge the popular assumption “that it is the learner who knows best and that she or he should be the controlling force in her or his learning.”

"The public and teachers are more divided than Democrats and Republicans."

When it comes to what constitutes a superb education in America, the general public and teachers have vastly different views, say Peterson, Henderson, and West in this book, a compilation of research reported originally in Education Next. Surveys fielded by over 5,000 teachers and members of the general public (2007–13) conclude that, overall, teachers and the public disagree most on issues pertaining to tenure, pensions, union efficacy, charter schools, school vouchers, and standardized testing.

12th Graders to take TIMSS Advanced Global Exam on High-Level Math and Physics

The Education Department is planning for U.S. participation next year in the TIMSS Advanced global exam on high-level math and physics, according to a notice published today in the Federal Register.

 

The U.S. does participate regularly in the basic TIMSS test, the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study. That exam is given every four years to fourth and eighth graders around the world. U.S. students in both grades topped the international average in both math and science on the most recent test, in 2011, with fourth graders performing especially well.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, July 24, 12:41 PM

Because of the over-testing of students in the U.S., testing seniors is a really bad idea. By the time our students reach 12th grade, they have been tested repeatedly throughout the grades and have never received any feedback and no consequences. As a result, they consistently engage in what teachers refer to as “Christmas-treeing” tests. They simply fill in the dots and go through the motions. I would not want my career riding on the performance of a 12th grader on yet another meaningless test.

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post | college and career ready | Scoop.it

by Matthew Lynch

 

"...technology has made it possible for students who fall off the traditional path to jump back on and finish what they spent most of their childhood working towards. This may be in the form of taking remote classes from home, remedial classes in on-campus computer labs or even by enrolling in full-time online schools, public or private. The technology available for these options benefits students who face difficulties with a normal school schedule including teenage parents, students with short-term or long-term illnesses, teens with substance abuse struggles, or those who had poor academic performance due to learning disabilities or bullying."

What is interesting is that other sources indicate there is a growing digital divide. Could it be both are happening? We have some communities graduating students in greater numbers and others struggling. Is it possible what we look for is what we find in research sometimes?

COMPENSATIONS FOR INADEQUACY

COMPENSATIONS FOR INADEQUACY | college and career ready | Scoop.it

“How many of those who are insecure seek power over others as a compensation for inadequacy and wind up bringing consequences down upon their heads and those around them?

 

How many hide out in their lives, resist the summons to show up, or live fugitive lives, jealous, projecting onto others, and then wonder why nothing ever really feels quite right.

 

How many proffer compliance with the other, buying peace at the price of soul, and wind up with neither?”

Performance Assessment Re-Emerging in Schools | EdWeek Teacher

Performance Assessment Re-Emerging in Schools | EdWeek Teacher | college and career ready | Scoop.it

At Fresh Meadows Elementary School in New York City, 1st grade teacher Courtney Horan hands her student, six-year-old Wenika, a copy of the children's book Surprise Moon, by Caroline Hatton. Horan listens carefully as Wenika starts reading; this assessment will determine whether Wenika moves on to the next reading level.

 

The test isn't timed, but Wenika starts rattling off text like she's got somewhere to be. Recognizing that her student might be thrown off by the presence of a reporter, Horan tells Wenika to calm her nerves, slow down, and start again.

 

Wenika isn't the one to watch, however. That would be Horan, rapidly checking each word the child reads off a book transcript. When Wenika self-corrects, Horan marks that, too, while also watching to see if Wenika reads using syntax or visual cues.

 

The oral-reading portion requires a 96-percent accuracy rate as a prerequisite to advancing, but students aren't penalized if they self-correct. After the first 100 words, Horan instructs Wenika to read the rest silently.

 

When she finishes, Wenika is asked to retell the story as best as possible and answer a set of reading-comprehension questions. In the end, she nails the test, and advances to the next reading level. Even so, Horan walks her through a couple trouble spots from the selection and offers feedback.

 

Horan is using a performance-assessment practice known as running records—in this case, a version designed by the Reading and Writing Project at Teachers College, Columbia University, in New York City. The practice is designed to give young students a chance to demonstrate their reading skills and understanding as a teacher interacts with them and gauges their progress.

"Learning to read well and do complicated math should be a shared expectation, not a dicey political dispute." | college and career ready | Scoop.it

"Learning to read well and do complicated math should be a shared expectation, not a dicey political dispute. The Common Core standards for what students should know at each grade level — not just the facts, but how to think critically — will help prepare our nation for fierce global competition.

Wisconsin is already spending $23 million to implement new tests tied to the Common Core standards. Walker previously agreed to spend millions so the tests could begin next spring. Educators have spent tens of thousands of hours preparing for the more rigorous benchmarks, adjusting curriculums and teaching methods."

Rebecca Jackson's curator insight, Today, 7:12 AM

If we want to prepare our children for financial and academic success, then it must start in our own homes.  The goal is to have kids  acquire a series of habits they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.  If communities fail to work with educators and emotionally prepare children for hard work as we continue to raise the academic benchmarks—we will fail.  The new homework is building grit.  Grit = grades.  #Thelearninghabit
