Catch and Release: Encourage Independence | Dialogue and Learning | Scoop.it
The Catch and Release teaching technique allows students to take on a project independently, but keeps the instructor in control by providing time to get students back on track. Watch as Ms. Noonan uses this technique in her classroom.
Frances's insight:
This is a great example of "learning how to learn...with others." Note the importance of dialogue...between teacher and student, students and students, and student to self!

Anchor Charts - Good Teaching at ALL Levels - | Dialogue and Learning | Scoop.it
When I talk to teachers about anchor charts and the need for them in the classroom, I tend to get one of two reactions:  1) faces light up eagerly with that ”I can’t wait to get to it” look  or  2) faces crumple and the teachers groan. The negative reactions tend to come from teachers…

... los estudiantes comenzaban el proceso de desarrollo de argumentos y el uso de la evidencia que los respalde - dos habilidades destacadas por las normas básicas comunes adoptadas ahora en Nueva York. Aunque los estudiantes de la Academia Urbana están exentos de la mayoría de los exámenes de estado, la escuela de transferencia popular en Manhattan ha venido enseñando estas habilidades durante casi dos décadas a través de una clase llamada "Buscando un argumento?"


El curso se enseña en al menos cuatro escuelas de la ciudad, y su énfasis en la lectura de textos de no ficción y la escritura de ensayos argumentativos podría convertirla en una herramienta útil para los profesores que buscan alinear sus aulas con las nuevas normas.


Al mismo tiempo, el énfasis del curso en apoyar una opinión personal está en contraste con el enfoque singular del Common Core del arquitecto David Coleman puesto en la capacidad de los estudiantes para analizar las "decisiones del autor." Buscando un argumento sólo funciona si los estudiantes dicen lo que creen.
