School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS

School Trends - New school year brings longer school day for CPS | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it

Chicago Public Schools chief Jean-Claude Brizard - In a packed auditorium before the ceremonial ringing of the first bell to start a new school year, Brizard told students that a longer school day will bring more academic rigor..

 

"That means more AP (biology), more support for students who need it," Brizard told the crowd. "For elementary schools, it'll mean more recess, more math, more social studies."

 

Lindblom, a selective enrollment school for 7th through 12th graders, saw its school day increase by 41 minutes four days a week. That added time will push the end of the school day to 3:44 on most days and give students more time for classroom instruction scheduled around their needs, said Principal Alan Mather.

In the same way that film in the 1930s through the 1950s was considered the golden age of Hollywood, and the 1950s and 1960s the golden age of television, teaching and learning with technology will likely hit its stride in the next decade and a half, and almost certainly produce something stunning.

Internships chosen by students are one way to bring real-world relevance back to the classroom.

Various school models have tried to integrate more hands-on learning into the traditional school day, including schools in the Big Picture Learning network. One such such school in Oakland, MetWest High School, aims to help high school students explore their passions outside of school and bring that learning and experience back into the academic setting. MetWest focuses on relationships, relevance and rigor, in that order.

What Every Student Needs

Every student is different. Every single intelligent, forgetful, smiling, moody, enthusiastic, apathetic, reflective, short-sighted little (or big) human being that walks into your classroom on a daily basis has their own story–one full of promise, heart-break, and complexity. And this isn’t hippie nonsense. It’s true, and it matters.

How Theater Can Offer Students New Perspectives On History #Education

How Theater Can Offer Students New Perspectives On History #Education | Student Engagement and Learning | Scoop.it

Theater is providing an opportunity for students to express parts of history textbooks overlook.

Teachers work hard to help students understand the crucial role of perspective in shaping historical narratives. And yet for the sake of time and convenience, history textbooks often flatten the narratives, excluding events and upholding a Euro-centric narrative of what constitutes “history.” Teachers are coming up with amazing ways around this problem from integrating video games as social studies texts, to creating their own open educational resources. Some teachers are even using theater to help kids access the untold histories of minority groups that often get overlooked in the dominant narratives.

Children are using digital technologies and media at increasingly younger ages and for longer periods of time. They spend an average of seven hours a day in front of screens – from televisions and computers, to mobile phones and various digital devices. This is more than the time children spend with their parents or in school. As such, it can have a significant impact on their health and well-being. What digital content they consume, who they meet online and how much time they spend onscreen – all these factors will greatly influence children’s overall development
