Get Less Busy: Teachers know this as well as anyone!!!

Get Less Busy:  Teachers know this as well as anyone!!! | Common Core Implementation | Scoop.it
The irony is, that at this time, perhaps more than ever before, our leaders need to be making themselves much less ‘busy’, and focusing more than they ever have done on nurturing their workforce.

 

People in our workforces are under serious strain. They are constantly being asked to do more with less. Our businesses and government departments are responding to the austerity drives by trimming more and more from their budgets, which inevitably means fewer people are left to do the work. Meanwhile the demands are increasing. With everyone in the economy tightening their belts, company profits are falling, which means that a smaller and smaller workforce is being challenged to work smarter, harder, more innovatively and to ‘keep their chins up and stay engaged’.  Teachers see this with increasing class sizes, fewer support resources and the demands to do more for more students.

 

So how do we own our own time?

This article, that Darren B scooped, is very interested and very practical.  I'd love to persue Diigo with my students...I've always had trouble getting it to work with our school filter.  But it might b time to try it again because this is really close reading technique digital style!

ratzelster's comment, May 31, 2013 8:08 AM
Think it might b time to try and get the school filer to work with Diigo. Espeically since close reading in science requires lots of annotation if students are to ever understand more complex text articles.
Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, May 31, 2013 8:56 AM

I think this may go without saying, but these are the steps to teaching close reading not close reading in and of itself. Eventually, we all know, kids need to be able to go throught steps and thinking required of close reading independently.
