Creative teachers are not linear teachers. They respond to the students and their experiences in caring and sensitive ways, allowing students to be creative.

Leaders Need Three Kinds of Focus

Leaders Need Three Kinds of Focus | Educational trends & resources | Scoop.it
I once worked with a CEO who was paranoid about results, so much so that he never cared for relationships with those who delivered the results. The end results weren’t surprising - the intended results were never delivered because people either stopped caring or moved on. The loss was almost

When leaders focus they are doing so with three elements. The inner, outer and other focus. This simple graphic reinforces the vital importance of a healthy mindset.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, March 31, 9:12 AM

So very true but difficult to live.  Takes time, effort, transparency and integrity to accomplish.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 18, 6:33 PM
I think of the other focus as in-between. It is the hyphen (our senses) we find between things that allows the inner and outer foci to communicate with each other. Derrida and Merleau-Ponty used the slash between words (inner/outer) to denote the permeable and thin membrane that exists.

PARCC Tests and Readability: About two grade levels above students' grade and age

PARCC Tests and Readability: About two grade levels above students' grade and age | Educational trends & resources | Scoop.it
The other results show that the passages chosen are about two grade levels above the readability of the grade and age of the children by measures other than the Lexile level. The results of testing children on these passages will be quite predictable. Students will score lower on the tests than on previous tests. We have already seen this in New York where test scores plummeted when the new tests were given last year. English Language Learners (ELL) and students with disabilities will be particularly hard hit because these tests will prove extraordinarily difficult to them.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, February 17, 2015 10:00 AM

If you are a regular reader of my ScoopPosts, you know that I am a supporter of PARCC. That said, I support the philosophical views of PARCC assessment: assessing critical thinking skills by asking students to explain their thinking; expecting students to read and write about texts beyond fiction and poetry; evaluating students using standards-based assessments. But, PARCC has not done a good job of representing itself to the public: to parents, to teachers, to educators guiding implementation. The study discussed in this blog is one more example of PARCC's misstep...why would PARCC choose texts clearly beyond the quantitative levels of reading challenge as text exemplars. I can only hope that PARCC test writers (Pearson) have a reasonable logic for these decisions someone with a voice that can be heard and respected acknowledge the call of the public.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 10:19 PM
Professional learning, rather than development, is based on autonomy and responsible choice. The idea anyone empowers someone suggests an external process that frees us from chains.

Why You Can't Ignore the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices

Why You Can't Ignore the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practices | Educational trends & resources | Scoop.it
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have become a controversial and highly debated movement in education. The standards have been praised, bashed, banned, and everything in between. Regardless of your feelings about the standards, their implementation, or the testing that accompanies them, the creators got one thing right: The eight Standards of Mathematical Practices.
