Begin the School Year with Appropriate Discussion and Journal Prompts While Giving Everyone a Voice 

 

Anthony Scaramucci, Managing Partner at SkyBridge Capita, offered this advice to young professionals and entrepreneurs on LinkedIn.com. His list of quotations provide good journal writing prompts and conversation starters for orienting new students to you and to your classroom. There could be different aphorisms displayed each day until you become overwhelmed by the objectives of your course. If you are working with teens, there should always be more than one prompt available to block disgruntled participants from derailing your plans.

 

However, for Scaramucci's list of quotations to be ideal, there should be authors included that represent a cross-section of the students in your classroom(s). To reflect the ideological clarity (Bartolomé, 1994) necessary to be inclusive and to engender full participation, sayings exclusively from white males may become an equity issue. 

 

For a quick and equitable list of famous quotations from movies, Shannon Doyne and Katherine Schulten, both writers for the Learning Network: Teaching & Learning for The New York Times, provide a ready-made handout, as well as an entire lesson for interpreting famous lines.

Before running headlong into this lesson, regardless of how well considered and comprehensive, try first using several of the lines as journal prompts to initiate classes at the onset of the year, as suggested above. They will provide critical information on students' general knowledge, capabilities and interests. When students share their responses, the learning community will bond as long as the perimeters of discussion are clear from the onset.

Facebook Interface Adjustment to Mediate Bullying: Tempered Responses, Personal Intelligence, EQ and IQ in Character Analysis / Ethics Development

 

For those teachers who need a good non-fiction article for state test preparation, or for those interested in stimulating discussion to strengthen a small learning community, Marc Brackett introduces the reader here to Facebook's interface-adjustment project while simultaneously addressing the issue of emotional intelligence in teens. He points out that many young people have neither "the skills to have effective conversations about the difficult topic of bullying", nor the "problem solving" decision-making skills to temper their reactions and defend themselves in measured ways. 

 

Perhaps more importantly, the article refers to one teen in a focus group that could articulate his thoughts well enough to become a leader in that sample. While other students may not envision themselves in Charlie Sherman's shoes, by example, he may represent hope for either their singular or collective future(s). Nevertheless, the association may enhance their 'personal intelligence' (PI) that “entails the capacity to understand oneself, to appreciate feelings, fears and motivations (Smith, 2008; Gardner, 1999).

 

Furthermore, the article represents an opportunity for teachers to discuss student behavior in an indirect way. For instance, when discussing character development in literature, I had success using the emotional quotient (EQ) (Goleman, 1995; Bar-On, 2005) and intelligence quotient (IQ) (Stern, 1912) to teach students how to detect 'coming of age' behavior and metacognition in the climax/epiphany of short stories. When young people begin to recognize immature behavior in characters, they often see the same in their own. This lesson creates the conduit required to get students to 'make connections' between fictional personalities and their own, but in a way that does not belittle or waste precious learning time.

I think there are problems trying to reduce teaching and learning to simple terms, especially in a country that is experiencing shifting cultural contexts, but there are some good points made.

Time and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for K-12 Classrooms


The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for K-12 classrooms are receiving appropriate opposition on multiple fronts, but significant issues were and continue to be ignored only exacerbating the problem of mobilizing yet another initiative to improve our schools. Motoko Rich's article, "School Standards' Debut Is Rocky, and Critics Pounce" in the Education section of The New York Times on August 15th, 2013, adeptly outlines the various areas of dispute throughout the country, but omits a few critical ones.  For instance, time for more content specific instruction, student learning, lesson and curriculum planning and student support/tutoring. As diversity in learning-styles and needs increase particularly in mainstream classrooms, which is certainly the trend in the United States, teachers will be expected to bridge the learning gap, and good teachers will feel the obligation to their core [pardon the pun].

Infographic of Learning Theories Provides Foundation for Teacher Reflection

 

If we want new or early service teachers to reflect on their own practices knowledgeably, this educational ‘infographic’ on learning theory could be helpful. This need for assistance has little to do with the inadequacies of teacher education and professional development programs; the issue has more to do with how much can be retained, especially in rigorous and fast-paced programs (like those provided at the University of Massachusetts Amherst). If we believe in reflection on one's teaching practice as the single most important avenue to excellence in the field, experience itself must have enough depth for there to be a usable foundation for theoretical and philosophical possibilities to be considered.

When planning a lesson for high school students, especially those gifted with multilingualism, use of social media sites (like Scoop.it!, Twitter and Pinterest) combined with verb-rich objectives make learning both accessible and empowering. However, use of these affordances are meaningless if objectives are vague, disconnected from necessary learning outcomes and/or do not provide measurable results.
