Why don't we change? This is something so-called reformers can change if they have the will.

We often take school schedules as being fixed without questioning why they are as they are and if they meet the needs of our students.   Looking at the needs and natural dispositions of student as the basis for planning can lead to some very interesting innovations in how, where, and when we teach and learn.

SCIENCE TEACHERS: WATCH THIS VIDEO! This is a great video that explains what students gain from watching videos dealing with science concepts. Watch this and use the information to choose great videos. Or add components to the videos you already watch to help make sure your students will learn.

Ninth Grade: The Most Important Year in High School

Ninth Grade: The Most Important Year in High School | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Educators are increasingly focusing on the ninth grade as the year that determines whether a young person will move on or drop out of school. According to research published in the journal Education, ninth graders have the lowest grade point average, the most missed classes, the majority of failing grades, and more misbehavior referrals than any other high-school grade level. Ninth grade has increasingly become a “bottleneck” for students..."

Research shows that 9th grade is a pivotal year for high school students. Some define it as a "make or break year for many 14- and 15-year-olds." Why?  They are entering a new school, having more autonomy and more homework, and they are an adolescents, with brains that may not be making the best decisions.
This post discusses these issues and provides suggestions as to steps that may be considered to assist them in the process.

I love it when research confirms the hands on knowledge I've acquired while teaching online.

Donna Farren's curator insight, November 23, 2013 10:01 PM

I totally agree and think student can be K12 or adult. 

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 24, 2013 6:48 AM

"Several Studies published recently show similar results; students lose interest in longer lecture videos and become distracted. If lectures are short or broken up by some kind of interaction (such as quizzes), then engagement is far higher."

Infographic: Why Classroom Movement Gets an A+ | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Sitting is a learned behavior, passed on through tradition and adults, and today’s sedentary lifestyles are affecting our youth and their classroom performance. Studies show that more activity throughout the school day improves health and academic outcomes."

Our students sit most of the day. Yet research tells us that activity is beneficial, that movement throughout the day improves academic outcomes. This infographic shares information on this subject and includes a list of resources.

Students Conduct Their Own Groundbreaking Research About Learning

Students Conduct Their Own Groundbreaking Research About Learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Public Science Project has been successful at enlisting the help of young people and motivating them to engage in highly academic work in large part because they value what those youth bring to the table. This model offers interesting insights for educators struggling to motivate and challenge learners that seem disengaged or disinterested in learning.

Talk about authentic learning, this post provides the model to help your students become engaged and motivated researchers. Train students in "statistics and research methods" and they can actively participate in research. The post provides details of this project (which is in New York) and may move you to see if you could bring this opportunity to your students.

Thanks for this Beth.  I will add this to my tutorials for students.  It is very helpful, Audrey.  Also have a look at www.hotmoodle.com.

I plan to share this at the School Accountability meeting I am chairing next week.  We have a standing agenda item - the middle school student.  This is a great resource and in a great format to start conversations at school and home.
