5 Better Ways To Say 'I Don't Know' In The Classroom | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Do you allow students to answer a question with the response "I don't know" in the classroom? Perhaps you should consider no longer allowing that phrase and instead offering up these five other ways that might get students thinking a bit more.

How often do you hear a student say "I don't know." Here are five alternative suggestions that you might offer up to your students. Why? If we want our students to become critical thinkers they need to be able to ask questions. Rather than accepting the answer "I don't know" have the student think a bit more and come up with a better question. Click through to the post to see three additional questions and share your own if you have other suggestions.

5 Better Ways To Say 'I Don't Know' In The Classroom

5 Resolutions To Modernize Your Teaching For 2014 | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, we all hear about the typical weight/health/finance related promises we make to ourselves – but why not use this yearly changeover to make some classroom promises instead? We can all use some new goals, and our students will be the ones benefiting from the changes with us. Win-win, I’d say!"

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.

Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features.

Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery..."

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Instead of focusing our concerns on technology as an aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, says Jen Carey.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 1, 2014 3:10 PM

As teachers we know how easy it is for students to plagiarize today. We are asked to have students work collaboratively and use tools where students may see others thoughts. How to we deal with these issues, the need for collaboration and using tools which promote this and the issue of students plagiarizing? And when it comes to assessment how do we ask students to collaborate yet also demand that they not plagiarize?

This post explores these issues and discusses how to "transform cheating into collaboration"?  There is also a question that each of us might ask ourselves (and I suspect many of us have): If you can Google an answer is it a good question for an assessment?

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.
