7 Easy Strategies for Giving Great Impromptu Speeches

7 Easy Strategies for Giving Great Impromptu Speeches | Education | Scoop.it


"My goal with this blog post is not to guide you into making a stirring, memorable speech that will inspire the generations (given that an impromptu speech is unexpected, and because it will likely only last a few minutes). My goal is simply to help you develop the skills you need to give a quality, well structured, simple and effective speech. Any subsequent accolades beyond this are just the gravy on top."

7 Books that will make you a better teacher - Daily Genius | Education | Scoop.it
Reading makes your smarter.  More importantly, it makes you a better teacher.

Smart districts offer in-service or professional development compensation for instructors that read relevant resources.

Most people think that the summer provides educators with well deserved time to recharge.  While that is true, most importantly, it provides educators time to read. I challenge you to read the list of books described below this summer.  They have immediate and actionable implications with the way you instruct your students.

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane | Education | Scoop.it
If a kid has been pushed to a point where she’s acting out in order to get negative attention, the problem is far bigger than you. You know that, right? I didn’t when I was a young teacher, but when this reality dawned on me, it was a game changer. Realizing that it wasn’t about me gave me enough space to breath a bit before I reacted.

It’s not about you either, I’ll bet. If it is, it might say something about how much the kid who is making you crazy cares about you.

Sometimes, they act out to get your attention.

Sometimes, it’s the only way they know.

Sometimes, admitting what they really think or feel or need requires a level of vulnerability they just aren’t able to conjure.

So, don’t call students out in front of other people. Don’t point out their errors, don’t name their flaws, and by all means, don’t cut them down with your sarcasm. Try to get to the root of the problem, instead. Try asking yourself a few questions.

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it
Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. Don’t always start planning with a standard. Questions matter more than answers. Trust is a currency of a human classroom.

So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. The idea of “good teaching” is an idea we get at a variety of different ways, So then, here are some rules we might consider when making sense of this idea of what makes a teacher great.

Garlyn Wacker's curator insight, May 22, 2015 11:28 AM

I love this!  It's so simple and so truthful; teachers need to consider these rules.  There are actually 15 rules of great teaching; five of the rules stood out to me the most.  1.  Embrace more than one way of teaching content.  2.  Experiment with new ideas and ways to introduce lesson plans.  3.  Be concise in how your present information; less is better.  4.  Love your content.  Be passionate about what you are teaching.  When students see your energy and enthusiasm, it is contagious.  Finally, 5: it's not about you.  A teacher doesn't need to be the "star" of the classroom.  The focus should be on the students and the lesson.  Good advice for all teachers.

Thankfully, there are services that offer affordable and accurate translations you can depend on. Here are three of the best, and three of the rest."

Free Technology for Teachers: Stupeflix - Create Audio Slideshow Videos Without Registration | Education | Scoop.it
Years ago I used Stupeflix for a couple of classroom video projects. Then the service changed pricing models and I could no longer use it with students. Recently, someone on Facebook (sorry, I now cannot find who) mentioned Stupeflix so I gave it another look this morning. Some great improvements have been made to Stupeflix since the last time that I used it.

Stupeflix allows you to create audio slideshow videos up to twenty minutes in length. You do not need to register in order to create a video on Stupeflix. You can and should register if you want to be able to go back and edit your video after it has been published.

4 Tech Tools for Photo Documentation - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman

4 Tech Tools for Photo Documentation - Brilliant or Insane  @AngelaStockman | Education | Scoop.it
“When I have a camera in my hand, I pay closer attention,” she tells me.

I feel the same way.

I’ve written about using photos to document learning before. The process is as efficient as it is powerful, particularly for those who keep a cell phone tucked into their pockets most days. Begin by thinking about the most critical moves learners might make in a given period of time, make sure your phone is charged and easily accessible, and start shooting your data.

When you’re finished, these four tools can help you curate, share, and analyze the evidence you gather. Be sure to invite company. Accessing other voices will deepen your perspective and help you develop insights you may not have otherwise. This enriches data analysis.
