Philip Powel Smith's insight:

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

94% of human resources people might say they prefer positive feedback, but that does not explain when they escort an employee of site. I find it useful to ask for examples. I once had a School manager suggest I was being unprofessional, but, when I asked for an example, he had none.

 

Feedback and criticism are necessary for growth. The relationship we have with employees and students is important in providing feedback and criticism. I eliminated giving marks on many activities and used rubrics as a way to guide learning. These were well explained to the students and became useful in student learning.

What’s the Difference Between Dysgraphia and Dyslexia?

What’s the Difference Between Dysgraphia and Dyslexia? | Dys-lexia and Learning Difficulties | Scoop.it
It’s not unusual for kids to have both dyslexia and dysgraphia. Dyslexia is primarily associated with trouble reading. But it can also affect writing, spelling and even speaking. Dysgraphia mostly shows up as writing difficulties. Kids with dysgraphia may struggle with handwriting, organizing their thoughts on paper or with both of these activities.

Dyslexia and dysgraphia are brain-based issues. Both tend to emerge during childhood, although some people may not be diagnosed until later in life. Psychologists can get insights into how your child thinks and figure out the specific brain processes that are giving her difficulty. This will make it easier to find strategies that can help her with these lifelong challenges.

Philip Powel Smith's insight:

Understanding terminology is important. We far too often toss terms about as though everyone understands them. I hope this article helps clarify the difference between Dyslexia and Dysgraphia.

Thoughtful, accurate, concise. I would add that there are remarkably accurate, easy to use and mobile technologies that can provide an enormous assisst with reading and writing tasks. --Lou

Rowe Young- Kaple's curator insight, October 20, 2:14 PM

The confusion exists because identified individuals have issues with related phoneme/grapheme difficulties.  While the motor issue is definitely a reversal issue and that is the basis of the description of dyslexia,  it has  gone unrecognized for what it really is.  Understanding RPS reversed positioning sensation is a step in the right direction.  Since this provides a new way to remediate many of the difficulties dyslexics face, it is urged for all those working with LD students to become aware of the findings.

I am thrilled that this article is written directly to the people that have influence over our children's education - the teachers.  I have two boys with dyslexia - one being quite profound - and the damage done to who they are as young men before receiving the appropriate interventions has been horrendous.  So many times, the behaviors our children exhibit due to academic failure is looked upon as the reason for not making education progress.  Please teachers, take time and get informed.  You and your students will forever be changed.

Finally, Project-Based Learning measures a student’s ability to learn in depth.  It doesn’t rely on timed tests or multiple-choice tests to measure understanding.  Rather, it requires students to synthesize and create meaning from content.

 Great advice from members of the tribe in th e trenches!--Lou

Excerpt:

"Nobody can fully appreciate what it’s like to be a student with dyslexia in the way that another student with dyslexia can.  Tutors, teachers and parents have their advice, but here are some strategies from the real experts—kids with papers due, tests next week, and a project due on Friday.  How do they do it when they are struggling readers themselves?"

Nice review!-Lou

Excerpt:

"SO WHAT’S IN STORE FOR 2014?

In the coming year, more states will pass dyslexia legislation.  Look for Illinois to pass legislation requiring early screening for dyslexia as well as additional professional development requirements for educators.   We can also expect Tennesseans to see legislation introduced this year, as various advocacy groups and individuals in the state have formed an alliance to see landmark legislation passed there.   In addition to more laws passed, expect more technological advances, more medical advances, more movies and more books!"
