Books often provide inspiration. This book list provides 50 books listed in five categories:

* Inspiration

* Leadership

* Educational Psychology

* Learning Culture

* Practice

A short description of each book is provided as well as a link to Amazon (at least for the books I checked). And think of this as a list of 50 great books. The post states "Number one is just as great a resource as number fifty."

If you are thinking ahead to some great summer reading that will impact your classroom next year this would be a great place to start.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 2, 11:03 PM

We know that students are now seeing videos as components of online testing. Most students know strategies to use when reading text, but what works best with videos? This post provides 40 comprehension strategies that you may want to teach in your classroom.

The post begins with a short exploration of text and videos and then explores the interaction between video and text. The comprehension strategies are divided into four sections (information below quoted from the text):

* Before viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* During viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* After viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

Each of these sections has ten questions that provide anchor strategies. For example, the first section (before viewing) includes Anchor Strategies: Viewing Purpose, Preview, Predict, Connect

As long as the questions do not circle back to one right answer then critical thinking is used. Too often, questioning is brought back to the one right answer rather than exploring the questions from the many perspectives in the classroom.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 5:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas.

Is the memorization of information an effective way for learners to retain information? According to brain research the answer would be no. It is critical that connections be made. This post by Jackie Gerstein discusses the need for:

* Context

* Increase context and relevancy

Are we born creative or can we learn to be creative? New research provides insights into creativity, and this post looks at five myths that many of us have about creativity. The five myths are listed below, and they are explained in depth in the post.

1. Creativity is something you're born with

2. You can't control when inspiration will strike

3. You can't learn to be creative

4. Creativity happens in isolation (the myth of the lone creator)

5. Creativity comes to those with time and means

Brain-Based Learning Techniques to Try in Your Classroom

Brain-Based Learning Techniques to Try in Your Classroom | educational technology et | Scoop.it

"Brain-based learning isn’t a new concept, but it’s enjoying renewed attention thanks to the teacher accountability movement begun by President George W. Bush and continued by President Barack Obama. In a nutshell, teachers who use brain-based techniques don their “neuroscientist” hats and focus on creating experiences that cater to the inner workings of their students’ brains. The result: better learning experiences and better retention."

This post shares three techniques you may want to incorporate into your classroom. Each has a short description as well as a section on why it is effective and how to implement the technique.

* Incorporate frequent brain breaks

* Make time for social and emotional learning

* Teach smaller chunks

As new research is published on the brain the impact it may have on the classroom is significant. If we know that providing short brain breaks (and movement breaks) may allow students to come back refreshed and ready to learn then we need to consider how we can provide these opportunities.

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic | educational technology et | Scoop.it

"Carol Ann Tomlinson, author of “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners,” is the country’s preeminent scholar on differentiated instruction. Tomlinson defines differentiated learning as “ensuring that what a student learns, how he/she learns it, and how the student demonstrates what he/she has learned is a match for that student’s readiness level, interests, and preferred mode of learning.” She likens the reluctance to integrate modern knowledge of the learning process into the classroom to settling for a Model T instead of embracing 21st-century engineering."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 6, 2014 9:43 PM

This post explores some of Carol Ann Tomlinon's work on differentiation. Specifically it looks at:

* Content

* Process

* Product

* Affect

After defining each of these concepts you will find the following sections:

* The Empirical Basis of Differentiation

* Implementing Differentiation in your Classroom

* Anecdotal Support for this Method

* Criticisms of Differentiation

Many teachers find it difficult to find the time to differentiate for all students and some students find it frustration to discover that they have more work than other students. Today we are often told that we need to personalize the instruction for each student. Differentiation is one way we can walk down this road.
