Gene Wilhoit: Quality Curriculum is Key to Common Core Implementation | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Gene Wilhoit, the former Executive Director of the Council of Chief State School Officers who led the effort to create the Common Core, explains that until we have a more powerful curriculum design and more deep professional exchange about content, pedagogy, and student work going on in our schools the Common Core will not be implemented as it should be.

Pedagogy and curriculum intertwine and help the student connect with their learning. It is an invitation into learning rather than a guarantee of learning. @ivon_ehd1

Response: Positive Classroom Management Strategies - Part One - EdWeek

Response: Positive Classroom Management Strategies - Part One - EdWeek | college and career ready | Scoop.it
This week's question is:

What are your suggestions for effective classroom management strategies?


At various times, I would imagine that classroom management is a challenge to many of us who teach -- it certainly is to me!  New years, new classes, new students (who all come from different backgrounds and previous school experiences) all can contribute to an occasional or often challenging environment. 

How can we respond in effective and positive - not punitive - ways?

What Motivates Teachers? - Mind/Shift

What Motivates Teachers? - Mind/Shift | college and career ready | Scoop.it

"A recent Gallup poll of 170,000 Americans — 10,000 of whom were teachers — found that teaching is the second most satisfying profession (after medicine). Ironically, the same Gallup poll found that in contrast to their overall happiness with their jobs, teachers often rate last or close to the bottom for workplace engagement and happiness.

“Of all the professions we studied in the U.S., teachers are the least likely to say that their opinions count and the least likely to say that their supervisor creates an open and sharing environment,” said Brandon Busteed, executive director of Gallup Education, at the Next New World Conference.

This is a troubling trend at a time when schools need to continue to attract high quality educators. “If the perception in our country is that teaching is not a great profession to go into, we certainly aren’t going to be encouraging really talented young people to be thinking about the profession of teaching,” Busteed said in an interview with Stephen Smith on the American RadioWorks podcast."

Most of the ex-classroom teachers I know (including myself) say what they miss most from their teaching experience are the kids.  Even and sometimes especially those that are challenging. -Lon
