Here is something fun to offer your students! Thanks Beth!

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 14, 2014 4:27 PM

We all need a break now and then, but for some reason teachers think students can sit still longer than teachers will when they are in a class. Beth Dichter says, "If you find this version too difficult for your students you will find a simpler version of it at http://www.yourtherapysource.com/files/Roll_Some_Fun_Freebie2.pdf "

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 4, 2014 7:10 PM

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 2014 5:21 PM

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 7, 2014 2:25 PM

It is interesting to see all of Bloom's side by side.

19 Reading Response Questions For Self-Guided Response -

19 Reading Response Questions For Self-Guided Response - | Common Core | Scoop.it

"I was recently going through an old folder of reading reflection prompts and forms, and found a reading log that I called a “Self-Guided Reading Response Log” (whatever that means). It’s a few years old, but I remember using it first as a way for students to get “points” in a reading program we were doing at the time."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 23, 2014 9:11 PM

Terry Heick shares 19 reading prompts that he has used with students in the past. The list would work with both fiction and non-fiction.

In the post he describes how he used the prompts to help students, stating that he expected his students to be able to say "I read this, and know that writing about what I read is important, and I picked these questions to use to guide my writing."

The image above includes the prompts. He also has included additional explanations with many of the prompts within the post.

David Baker's curator insight, July 29, 2014 6:16 PM

Powerful frame for reading in most content areas. Not all are appropriate for each setting but helping to identify type of text and relevant questions might be a great pre-reading classroom activity.

A Tool for Self-Assessment & Reflection

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 4, 2014 9:21 PM

Andrew Church has created a tool for Self-Assessment and Reflection that asks students to answer 4 questions:

* What can I do? ((How am I going?)

* What can't I do? (How am I going?)

* How does my work compare with others? (How am I going?) 

* What can I do better? (Where do I go next?)

And then students are asked to look ahead with this question:

* What are my next steps? (What actions are you going to take as  a result of your reflections? Who can help me? Where to next?)

You can download two versions of this as a pdf file. One is in portrait mode and one in landscape mode. Church also asks that you provide him with feedback.

How to Search the Invisible Web

How to Search the Invisible Web | Common Core | Scoop.it
While the pages and media found via simple searches may seem unendingly huge at times, what is submerged and largely unseen – often referred to as the invisible web or deep web – is in fact far, far bigger.

Via Beth Dichter
more...
Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 1, 2014 7:41 AM

Many students are not aware that there is an "invisible web" that may be searched, one that is not quite so easy to find but has more information than Google provides (which tends to look at the "Surface Web"). According to this post Google has indexed "roughly 200 terabytes" while the size of the Internet is estimated at "5 million terabytes" of information.

The post provides a look at what is not found through Google (or other common search engines) and then shares:
* A list of Open Access Journal Databases (with over 10 databases with descriptions)

* A list of Invisible Search Engines. Quoting from the post "The search engines that deliver results from the invisible web are distinctly different. Narrower in scope, these deep web engines tend to access only a single type of data…deep web searches tend to be more thoughtful in their initial query requirements." Ten search engines are listed and there is a short description for each.

* A list of subject-specific databases in the following areas

     - Art & Design

     - Business

     - Legal & Social Services

     - Science & Technology

     - Healthcare

Although this post is geared to students in college there are resources that may be used by students in middle or high school provided, and as teachers it is important for us to learn more about this "invisible web" and to share it with our students.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, April 1, 2014 6:56 PM

An incredible amount of information is out there. Finding it and accessing it makes a huge difference. Here are some good ideas on how to do that.

Research on Vocabulary Instruction and the Common Core

Research on Vocabulary Instruction and the Common Core | Common Core | Scoop.it

By Tanya S. Wright

 

"The Common Core State Standards ratchet up vocabulary demands for K–2 by calling for children to read and be read to from informational texts from the start of school. While academic vocabulary knowledge is critical for comprehension more broadly (Biemiller, 2006; Nagy & Townsend, 2012), the vocabulary found in informational texts may create different challenges for young readers compared to vocabulary found in fiction (Hiebert & Cervetti, 2012).New vocabulary words in informational texts often represent new concepts for young children."
