Accountable Talk | Institute for Learning

Since 1995 the Institute for Learning has been dedicated to improving the education and achievement of all students, especially those traditionally underserved. Our research-based curriculum, tools and professional development build the capacity of teachers, administrators, and systems to provide students with high quality instruction and learning opportunities. We put research on effort-based learning to work for students and educators.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Talking in the classroom is one of the best ways to promote student responsibility for their own learning. Productive classroom talk is the basis of good thinking; indeed it is thinking made visible; and of good writing. This page offers a guide to implementing a talking classroom, one where teachers talk less and students talk more.

THE GLOBE AND MAIL - Including exercise breaks during class time seen as a way to boost learning

THE GLOBE AND MAIL - Including exercise breaks during class time seen as a way to boost learning | Edumathingy | Scoop.it
“ Despite being an unorthodox teaching technique, the inclusion of mini exercise breaks during class can help students remain focused, a new Oregon study concludes. A recent survey of Brain Breaks, a classroom-use DVD with five-minute-long exercise routines developed by Oregon State University and piloted in more than 400 kindergarten to Grade 6 classrooms, found that students enjoyed the program, and that more than 90 per cent of teachers planned to continue using it.”

How music can inspire strong student writing and discussion ~ eSchool News

How music can inspire strong student writing and discussion ~ eSchool News | Edumathingy | Scoop.it
by Nathan GarvinSummary by MiddleWeb by SmartBrief"Blending music and short journal prompts helps students build their confidence in writing, educator Nathan Garvin writes in this article. Garvin, a middle-school teacher in Texas, describes an assignment in which he plays a song while showing images to the students and then asks them to write about the image they chose as the best match for the song. "It's a simple journal prompt that can lead to creative, deep, and original writing," he notes."Free registration for eSchool News is required to access the full article.
Via Jim Lerman
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
Using music and images can be a great way to give students confidence in writing. Music evokes mood and this is sometimes where students find it the hardest to write. Imagery helps the visual learners to write about their feelings and ideas. It does not have to be imaginative writing either. It can be used for persuasive or expository writing.

Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

This piece has some good advice on encouraging writers. I do take issue with her statement that 'the write word is the one your story needs'. Surely that's why so much school writing is bad. Because how do students know which word is the one they need?

anyway, it would be a great staff room discussion.
