(From the article): When we look at what’s wrong, instead of looking at what’s right, we get mired down in feelings of despair and dread. But when we shift our focus to what is working, our brains actually respond! We can literally change our world simply by taking a different perspective. It doesn’t change the facts, but it does change how we feel about them.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, April 15, 5:01 PM

I am leading students through a close reading of "The Story of an Hour" tomorrow at a high school as a demonstration for English teachers. I have always enjoyed the this story and I have always considered what I did with the story is close reading. I still continue to believe what I will be doing is a close reading....hopefully we will be videotaping, so you can be the judge once the tape is ready for "prime time" viewing. However, I would never have thought to approach the story as these teachers do...and I'm not sure I could sustain four days of study in this text. Maybe two or three and the third or fourth writing...and I think 39 tier 2 words is too much. Regardless, a good lesson on how to plan for close reading...

Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.
