Disciplinary Literacy in Michigan
Educators help students recognize and understand the nuances of a discipline by using strategies that “make their thinking visible.” They promote classroom reading, writing, listening, speaking and critical thinking using authentic materials that support the development of content-specific knowledge and that transfer to real world situations.They guide students through these complex texts by using strategies that develop conceptual understanding of language and set expectations for relevant application of skills. This site includes resources of all kinds, including content knowledge resources, that lead to deeper disciplinary learning.

Going the extra mile | Learning with 'e's

This is number 26 in my series on learning theories. I'm working through the alphabet of psychologists and theorists, providing a brief overview of each theory, and how it can be applied in education. Previous posts in this series are all linked below. The previous post highlighted issues around the theory of Communities of Practice, from the work of Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger. In this post, I'm revisiting a well known and heavily used motivational theory - Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs.

Applying The 40/40/40 Rule In Your Classroom

Applying The 40/40/40 Rule In Your Classroom | Disciplinary Literacy in Michigan | Scoop.it

"I first encountered the “40/40/40 rule” my third year of teaching while skimming one of those giant (and indispensable) 400 page Understanding by Design tomes.

 

The question was simple enough. Of all of the academic standards you are tasked with “covering” (more on this in a minute), what’s important that students understand for the next 40 days, what’s important that they understand for the next 40 months, and what’s important that they understand for the next 40 years?"

Do we really teach democracy? Is it a phenomenon which is learned given the right learning environment? This is a daunting task for teachers. It means we have to allow some conflict and figure out ways of helping students overcome differences. This is no easy task.

Animated GIFs of Earth Over Time | Disciplinary Literacy in Michigan | Scoop.it

"It took the folks at Google to upgrade these choppy visual sequences from crude flip-book quality to true video footage. With the help of massive amounts of computer muscle, they have scrubbed away cloud cover, filled in missing pixels, digitally stitched puzzle-piece pictures together, until the growing, thriving, sometimes dying planet is revealed in all its dynamic churn. The images are striking not just because of their vast sweep of geography and time but also because of their staggering detail."

State of Design: How Design Education Must Change

State of Design: How Design Education Must Change | Disciplinary Literacy in Michigan | Scoop.it

By Don Norman and Scott Klemmer

Design is the practice of intentional creation to enhance the world. It is a field of doing and making, creating great products and services that fit human needs, that delight and inform. Design is exciting because it calls upon the arts and humanities, the social, physical, and biological sciences, engineering and business.

Design thinking comprises strategies for finding and solving problems by bringing an understanding of people and society to technology design, focusing upon finding the correct problem before rushing to a solution. We believe that design thinking skills will be a key success factor for a new generation of creative leaders in technology, business, and education.

McREL Blog: Ending the "fire hose" model of PD learning | Disciplinary Literacy in Michigan | Scoop.it
As educators, we’ve all experienced sitting through a two- or three-day workshop and, at the end of it, being overwhelmed with information, tired of sitting and listening, and wondering how we’re going to even begin incorporating what we’ve learned into our daily practice at school. We get back to work, and there’s no feedback from anyone and no time to try what we’ve learned. Time slips by, and we make little to no changes in our instructional practices. This style of “learning via fire hose” is one of the least effective, yet all-too-commonly-used formats of professional development in education. A...
