But The Kids Aren't Reading - 20 Ideas for Creating Passionate Reading Environments - Pernille Ripp

But The Kids Aren't Reading - 20 Ideas for Creating Passionate Reading Environments - Pernille Ripp | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
So many of us are trying to create passionate reading environments, we are doing all the things the experts tell us to do, and yet, something just isn’t clicking. Some kids are reading sure, but they would probably be reading any way, others though, not so much. Our passionate reading environments are just not working for all of our kids.

When I moved from 5th to 7th I knew I would be up against a challenge, after all, I had seen the slow decline of reading in my 5th graders and was pretty sure it would continue as they got older. And I was right, by 7th graders some of my students are not just disliking books, some really hate reading. And they are vocal about it! So what have I done to continue to create passionate reading environments? Here are a few ideas…

ASCD EDge - A Decade of Lessons | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

...When I started teaching, I had many preconceived ideas about how I would deliver instruction, how I would make learning come alive for my students.  Entering the teaching profession late in the game led me to believe I would be bringing Wisdom with me.  Little did I know that Wisdom is elusive and was much farther down the road than I was at the time.  Here are some things I’ve learned about teaching along the way....

When your class discussion goes silent

When your class discussion goes silent | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

1 Silence patterns may give clues to interventions that you should try.

2 Not all silences are created equal because some are productive (time for reflection or    time to think about sources of confusion) and others are not.

3 Social anxiety, self-image, and culture are factors in whether or not students verbally    participate in class discussion

4 When teachers answer their own questions (in response to the silence), the students learn to wait (be silent) and allow the teacher to answer future questions.

5 Tthere are multiple wait times to consider when posing questions for student discussions (one wait time is the time period between the question and the response, another wait time is the time period after the student response and the teacher’s reaction).

Policy Priorities:A Lexicon for Educating the Whole Child (and Preparing the Whole Adult):A Lexicon for Educating the Whole Child (and Preparing the Whole Adult) | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
When asked what defines an excellent preK–12 educational experience, professional educators overwhelmingly provide an answer that goes well beyond academic achievement. Why, then, do the majority of district, state, and federal education policies prioritize annual assessment results over equally important factors, such as challenging and engaging curricula; strong social-emotional and physical health supports; moral and ethical development; and safe, supportive learning environments?
