Sue Osborne's curator insight, October 9, 2013 5:38 PM

Little by little embracing reinvention. With limited space and limited staff resources, doing what I can.  Schools are slightly different (esp K-12) in the praticalities, but the philosophy should be the same. To collaborate, to explore, to identify the new limits. First small step? Cancelling subs to newspapers nobody (except one library staffer) was reading, that were costing $35 per week.  Bringing in magazines that students are asking for, at a cost of about $60 per month - cheaper and more relevant - what more could I ask? Of course it's the thin end of a very BIG wedge, but one has to start somewhere!

Study help for millions.

Study help for millions. | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Over a million people visited OpenStudy in September. They did not come to find a mate, share pictures, or play online games. They came to get help in math, science, history and a hundred other subjects commonly taught in schools and colleges globally. Some came to learn and some came to teach. Most wound up doing a bit of both.

Close Reading & Scientific Text: Patterns of Comparison | Partner in Education

Close Reading & Scientific Text: Patterns of Comparison | Partner in Education | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Teaching intermediate and high schools readers the nuances of engaging with informational text, be they strugglers or not, challenges nearly all educators across the disciplines, ELA included. To engage with sophisticated and mature texts that lack visually stimulating and meaningful photographic imagery is a place mature readers need to reach, a challenge they must master. In supporting student readers to meet that challenge, we must raise their individual awareness of clues left by authors, clues left to satiate the curious mind’s search for meaning, the problem-solver’s quest for resolutions, the novice in bridging  the absence of knowledge with an understanding of thought.

Integrating the Common Core Standards in the discipline of science and social studies may feel foreign to teachers in those content areas, but the pay-off in student learning will reward those educators with increased achievement. For years, teachers have complained about the need to "spoon feed" students. Common Core refocuses the responsibility for learning on students while challenging teachers to become facilitators for that learning rather than content lecturers.
