Nurturing Effective Middle Level Schools

Nurturing Effective Middle Level Schools | educational leadership | Scoop.it
Henry Ford said, “Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” I often share this quote with students who tell me they are not good at this or that subject or can’t do this or that level of work. I am convinced that with the support of the school, students who truly want to accomplish something will succeed. A positive school climate is critical to student and staff morale, and morale is all about relationships.

Right - Teacher evaluation research | educational leadership | Scoop.it
It is widely understood that there are vast differences in the quality of teachers: we’ve all had really good, really bad, and decidedly mediocre ones. Until recently, teachers were deemed qualified, and were compensated, solely according to academic credentials and years of experience. Classroom performance was not considered. In the last decade, researchers have used student achievement data to quantify teacher performance and thereby measure differences in teacher quality. Among the recent findings is evidence that having a better teacher not only has a substantial impact on students’ test scores at the end of the school year, but also increases their chances of attending college and their earnings as adults (see “Great Teaching,” research, Summer 2012).

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:20 PM

Leading is about power and how it flows. When we are conduits and let power flow through us, it works and allows others to take responsibility. It is not so much about giving them responsibly and about creating environments where responsibility is taken.

 

I compare it to teaching and learning. I cannot learn for students. They take responsibility for their learning. It does not mean I shirk responsibility in my teaching, rather I use it differently than the expert at the front of the class, with lights down, allowing children to do worksheets projected onto a screen while he checks a Twitter feed.

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, November 12, 2014 1:00 PM

I like the list but would prefer that Content not be the first thing to show up.  There are a great many people who know content, but could not teach their way out of a paper bag. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, July 9, 2015 8:20 PM

I certainly have to agree but could I add more? The only addition I think I would make would be having learners as the centre of all of the above. ;)

A Good Visual Featuring 7 Ways to Be More Creative ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Good Visual Featuring 7 Ways to Be More Creative ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | educational leadership | Scoop.it
"Creativity, according to Albert Einstein, is intelligence having fun and for most neuro-cognitive scientists creativity is something that is inherently born with us and the proof is kids. All kids draw on their sharp sense of creativity to discover and explore the world around them. They can easily adapt their behaviour to new situations, develop new thinking skills and are constantly engaged in trying out "new ways of doing stuff". Sir Ken Robinson made a strong argument in this regard in his popular TED talk "schools kill creativity". Ken argued that kids come to school bursting with creativity and by the time they graduate they have lost most if not all of their creativity. Sounds like schools are "educating kids out of creativity"!"

While 62 percent of the total U.S. population was classified as non-Hispanic white in 2013, when public schools start this fall their racial landscape will reflect a different America.According to a new report by the National Center for Education (NCES), minorities—Hispanics, Asians, African American, Native Americans, and multiracial individuals—will account for 50.3 percent of public school students. To break this down by grade levels, minorities will make up 51 percent of pre-kindergarteners to 8th graders and 48 percent of 9th to 12th graders.Click headline to read more and view charts--
