"On Monday, I had the opportunity to participate in another fab edition of the TL Virtual Cafe webinar series. This month's PD offering was an "Edutech Smackdown" featuring the Queen of All Things Library: Joyce Valenza. I love these smackdown sessions because they are the ultimate crowdsourced PD. Everybody grabs a slide (or two or ten) and when their time comes, takes the mic to share something they love. They are fun, fast paced and the cream always seems to rise to the top. Delish!"

Empathy For the Devil: How Teaching #Argumentation Can Develop Student Empathy for Opposing Viewpoints

Empathy For the Devil: How Teaching #Argumentation Can Develop Student Empathy for Opposing Viewpoints | Assessments | Scoop.it

"The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have turned this heated debate into a full fledged conflagration. The Common Core Writing Standards differentiate between persuasion and argumentation.  Persuasion is like a rant where a writer convinces his audience based upon his beliefs by appealing to emotion. Argumentation, conversely, uses a point-counterpoint structure addressing the other side of the debate and grounding an argument with logic and factual evidence. While my school begins to implement the CCSS as our standards for student assessment, the debate in the English department has shifted to how do we teach argumentation. Do we teach argumentation using writing templates or do we guide our students how to develop their own argument? Meanwhile, Irene and Jordan have become further entrenched in their positions."

21 Century Classroom => Inquiry: Teaching Students to Critique Their Own Work

21 Century Classroom => Inquiry: Teaching Students to Critique Their Own Work | Assessments | Scoop.it

My professional growth during this inquiry has centered on feedback, formative assessment and self-assessment. John Hattie's work has influenced me greatly in this as his research reveals that the strategy that leads to the greatest growth in students is teaching them how to critique their own work. At what point should this happen though?
