Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it
Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work... Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do. That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it

Differentiated instruction is not a single strategy or formula. It is a way of thinking about the diversity of learners in our classrooms and acting on this knowledge throughout the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating so that we can promote the deepest possible understanding for all students.

Freek Kraak's curator insight, August 12, 2013 10:34 AM

Interessant. Ik interesseer me erg voor kennis-/informatieoverdracht. Aardige poging. Ik vraag me af of dit ooit compleet kan zijn, zoals hier al staat: 'not a single strategy or formula'. Maar ik zou mij eerst moeten verdiepen in betekenis en reikwijdte van de gebruikte termen!

Websites and other ideas with writing prompts to spark student writing. 

Terry Doherty's curator insight, December 23, 2013 4:17 PM

I am (admittedly) a HUGE fan of writing prompts. They aren't just for school, either. They are wonderful "teasers" for dinner-table conversation, too.

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | Differentiated Instruction | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Listening to our students through asking thoughtful questions and providing descriptive feedback to their peer and self assessments.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 5, 2014 6:52 PM

This post provides a number of strategies that may help you receive better feedback from your students. The author, Jane Healey, suggests that you formulate "inquiries specific to a task." She has had students write an exemplary comment about another student (receiving "fabulous point-of-view descriptions") and then have the student write one for themselves.

Additional questions you might ask are also provided for research projects and class discussions.

Mary Cunningham's curator insight, January 5, 2014 7:35 PM

This is a great blog post on feedback and the importance of asking and listening to our students.

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, January 6, 2014 12:07 PM

Would you allow your students to evaluate you as a teacher? I think that you would learn a lot.
