7 Time-Saving Strategies For Teachers That Put Students First contributed by Dr. Stuart Kahl It goes without saying that teachers are very busy. So it’s not unusual to hear their concerns about the lack of adequate time to do everything teachers need to do: plan, individualize instruction, test,...
When We Don’t Cultivate Our Most Gifted Students by Brad McDonell When I was in primary school it was recognized that I finished my schoolwork quickly. The school was well prepared for high achievers, and once a week a small group of us would be shipped off to a special class to challenge our minds.
Reflection is an essential part of learning. Yes, it often hard to fit in the time for reflection. It's also challenging to make reflection something that doesn't seem boring and tedious. To help make reflection a little more fun, I've made a reflection question generator and dice that can help students express their responses. Both the generator and dice use QR codes and serendipity to call up reflection questions and avenues for responding.
Experience matters. This is true when it comes to everything from babysitting to applying for your first job out of high school or college. The candidate who already has experience will have the edge. As the emphasis on college and career-readiness continues to increase, I expect a growing number of schools and districts in the new year will start offering opportunities for students to obtain certifications and gain real-world experience while still in school. I also expect schools to implement technologies that help them manage programs to support students in their acquisition of these skills. My district, the Community Schools of Frankfort, in Indiana, is a good example. Last year we helped two eighth-grade students obtain their A+ Certification -- a national computer certification. Normally students don’t take this exam until they’re much older; however, we were able to nurture these skills in our students by setting up a student-run help desk to give them real-world experience.
