They key to critical thinking is the ability to pose challenging and provocative questions to yourself. To think critically is to delve deeper into those hidden layers of meaning and dissect the message in a comprehensive way. Of course, critical thinking is a very important skill mandated by the cognitive demands of a highly conceptual era.

Free Technology for Teachers: Engage Students in History With Fake Facebook and Fake SMS

Free Technology for Teachers: Engage Students in History With Fake Facebook and Fake SMS | Learning & Leading in Educational Practice | Scoop.it

Over the years Russel Tarr has developed and released a bunch of wonderful tools through ClassTools.net. Two of my favorite tools that he has developed are Fakebook and the fake SMS Generator.

Fakebook is Russel's tool for creating fake Facebook profiles. The latest version of Fakebook makes it easy to create a page by just clicking on a field and entering as much information as you like. In the profile picture field you can enter a name and Fakebook will search for images to use. For example, if you create a Fakebook page about George Washington Fakebook will search for pictures of George Washington.

I think these are good ways for students. I'm a student and my math teacher often asks these kinds of questions and that improves my thinking and understanding. But some of my friends hate thisㅠㅠ

Differentiation: "The teacher's responsibility is connecting content, process, and product."

Differentiation: "The teacher's responsibility is connecting content, process, and product." | Learning & Leading in Educational Practice | Scoop.it
Teachers aiming to differentiate learning in their classroom can focus on content, process, and product in giving students opportunities to grow and shine as individuals.

 

"The DI elements were first introduced to me in How to Differentiate Instruction in Mixed-Ability Classrooms by Carol Tomlinson, and my understanding later deepened thanks to my friend and mentor, Dr. Susan Allan. The core of differentiation is a relationship between teachers and students. The teacher's responsibility is connecting content, process, and product. Students respond to learning based on readiness, interests, and learning profile. In this post, we'll explore the teacher's role for effective planning of DI, and in the next three posts, we'll look at how students respond."

Feedback to Students Using Growth Mindset Language

Feedback to Students Using Growth Mindset Language | Learning & Leading in Educational Practice | Scoop.it

As students begin to work on their learning objectives, growth minded language guides and motivates them to ensure that they remain persistent, resilient, and focused on the process of learning. It is important to give learners feedback about their progress and their results so they can specifically see their growth.

Use these language frames when interacting with your students in the following situations.

When they struggle despite strong effort

7 Ways to Engage Students in Class

1- Use the 10:2 method
This means that after each 10 minutes of classroom instruction you provide students with 2 minutes to reflect, show what they learned, engage in mini discussions, ask questions …etc

5- Allow students 5-7 seconds of ‘think time’ when asking a question
Always make sure you provide a reasonable amount of wait time for students to think before they can answer.

6- At the end of a lesson have students use the 3-2-1 method of summarizing
This is a summative method that allows students to recapitulate what they have learned. They can do this through writing the 3 things they have learned from the lesson, share two interesting things that stood out to them from the lesson, and pose a question about what was taught.
