Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | Common Core Tools | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Reading on line...a good habit? Here to stay?

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 9:36 AM
Do students retain more information when they read from books rather than from digital devices? Does reading online present challenges due to distractions? Do students need to be taught skills to become better online readers?
Ruby Day's curator insight, August 3, 5:21 PM

Studies show we are not reading as effectively online as we are with hard copies. This highlights the need for tools to help us read deeper online - e.g annotation type tools. This links to an interesting stuy of year 5 students using collaborative annotation software demonstrating higher performance than the control group's' paper based annotation.

Critical Thinking in the Language Classroom

Critical Thinking in the Language Classroom | Common Core Tools | Scoop.it

When you ask people to define ‘Critical Thinking’, there is no shortage of definitions. In a recent online webinar for English Language Teachers, the lecturer started the webinar by asking participants to share their own definition of the term, Critical Thinking. With around 100 teachers from various backgrounds, there was a wide range of ideas and suggestions.

Peg Gillard's curator insight, October 27, 2013 9:51 PM

We are so far removed from inquiry based classrooms that curiosity is but a shadow. Students wait to be fed the learning, which isn't true learning if it is fed. True learning comes from asking our own questions and setting out on a quest to unravel the riddle we have created.

If you are a teacher in Grades K through 6 this site has a great resource...Common Core Checklists. You will find checklists for Reading, Writing, Language, Speaking & Listening, and Math.

The anchor standard is written at the top of the page. Underneath the indicator(s) will be listed in one column and you find columns for: date taught, date retaught, date reviewed, date assessed, date reassessed. All are uploaded as pdf files so you can easily download them for easy access. A screenshot of one page of Grade 3 ELA is in the image above.

'White moms' remark fuels Common Core clash - Stephanie Simon | POLITICO.com

'White moms' remark fuels Common Core clash - Stephanie Simon | POLITICO.com | Common Core Tools | Scoop.it

Education Secretary Arne Duncan realized fairly quickly that he had stumbled.

 

He had just told a gathering of state superintendents of education that “white suburban moms” were rebelling against the Common Core academic standards — new guidelines for math and language arts instruction — because their kids had done poorly on the tough new tests.

 

“All of a sudden, their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought … and that’s pretty scary,” Duncan said at the event Friday.

 

Two hours later, with those comments sparking outrage on social media, Duncan told POLITICO that he “didn’t say it perfectly.”

 

And he formally apologized on an Education Department blog Monday.

 

But he stood by his thesis: To oppose the Common Core is to oppose progress.

 

“Do we want more for our kids, or do we want less?” Duncan said. “Do we want higher standards or not?”

 

That’s the debate that Duncan dearly wants to have.

 

It’s not, however, the debate he’s getting.

 

To the immense frustration of Common Core supporters, an eclectic array of critics have raised sustained and impassioned objections about the new standards. From New York to Florida to Michigan to Louisiana, their voices are so loud and their critiques so varied that they have muddied the narrative around Common Core. It’s no longer a focused national debate about high standards; it’s hundreds of local debates, about everything from student privacy rights to cursive handwriting to computerized testing to the value of Shakespeare.

  The Collaboration Pyramid by oscarberg, on Flickr The Collaboration Pyramid offers a great visual to dive deeper into the nature of authentic collaboration and optimized production. In traditional team-based collaborative models we experience the “form, storm, norm and perform” process, and it has proved to be very useful in the context of team effectiveness, but perhaps leaves a bit of a void in the area of personal responsibility, or individual motivation to make a meaningful contribution to the team.
