MOOC on Water

"Water is an essential theme in social studies, science, and geography. Whether teaching about natural or human systems, water is part of the story. This course, framed around California's Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI), focuses on ocean and freshwater topics and strategies for teaching environmental topics in Grades 4-8. Resources and support are provided for how to use EEI to implement Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy."

Starts in October.

I find this video very informative because I didn’t know, that they have this type of course. I feel this course should be teach in every classroom around the United States, because is not only the adult that needs to learn how to protect the environment. We also need to educate our children because they are the future of America.  I think that by taking this class people will learn which places have the more environmental problem, and by becoming more aware of the issue , we all together will find the solution.

Educational Leadership: Reflections on Resilience

Educational Leadership:  Reflections on Resilience | Education | Scoop.it

"Resilience begins with beliefs. If you believe in the capacity of all individuals to demonstrate resilience, you won't give up on them. Your actions, words, and behaviors will project that message and will awaken and foster resilience in your students."

I chose this article because it explores ways to mitigate adversity and nourish personal stregnth such as:

*developing caring relationships

*setting high expectations

*creating opportunities to participatate and contribute

This supports the importance of developing "soft skills" in leaders to help them become effective.

I chose this article because it delves into ways to mitigate adversity and develop personal strength.

 

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:31 PM

Resilience is believing in what you do and even when it gets so hard and you feel so defeated, you just don’t give up. It is believing that you can rise above and achieve something in the face of disaster, disappointment and struggle. Resilience is needed in education or you will not survive. Each day you spend in school building, you carry the hopes and dreams of your students. You also carry their tragedies and trauma. Why do we do this every day over and over again? Because we are believers. We are resilient and we know we hold the potential to change lives and promote success in all of our students.

The Great Stagnation of American Education

For most of American history, parents could expect that their children would, on average, be much better educated than they were. But that is no longer true.
