Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 6, 5:36 PM

Jackie Gerstein returns with a post on Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill. Why hope and optimism? There are important skills/characteristics in this area:

* Positive View About the Future

* Can Do Attitude

* Personal Agency

* Engage in Positive Self Talk

* Belief in Ability to Solve Problems

* Belief in One’s Ability to Impact Positively on One’s Situation.

* Maintaining Perspective

* Sense of Efficacy

She then provides information and links to articles that have researched how hope and optimism impact students' lives in many areas, research based guidelines on how to build skills of hope in students, and more. This post provides much food for thought.

Here is a visual that may help your students with critical thinking skills. The post in Edutopia provides addtional information on this and the image came via twitter and that link is at the end of this post.

As you read the five questions you may find that might change a few. For example, if you are working with younger students you might want to change the first question to "What do you think you know?" and you might also want to change the fourth question to "What more can you tell me?"

Do you have other ideas? Share them by adding a comment.

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | education in english | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | education in english | Scoop.it

In working with students, critical thinking encourages and promotes:

Humility to accept criteria that is not their own.Courage to defend their own criteria against others.Responsibility to contrast and take into account the appropriate information.Commitment to filtering out and separating valid from useless information.Respect for the group and for the individual when the time comes for debate and contrasting ideas.

To educate an individual in critical thinking is to educate him or her to be capable of governing or controlling their own personal and professional life and to be able to find answers and solutions to problems. It is the road to forming critical and responsible citizens who are capable of confronting the challenges of the future.

So many students simply want the answer...no thinking involved, the easy way. We are doing our youth a tremendous injustice not emphasizing both the metacognitive and critical thinking processes. They need to be able to explore a problem, then analyze, explain, and evaluate it in order to survive as adults.

One key part of the Common Core is performance assessments. One question many may have is just what is performance assessment. This post provides a number of descriptions of performance assessments including ones from ETS, five criteria from Wiggins and McTighe based on Understanding by Design and ASCD.

Performance tasks may include project-based learning, drawings, videos, and more.

There is also a discussion on four reasons to use performance assessment. They are:

* Personalized Learing

* Formative Assessment

* Competency Education

* Standards-based Education

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom | education in english | Scoop.it

"In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure — in academic terms — actually begin."
