Teachers share how Pinterest offers so much more than crafty projects and recipes you'll never make — it's actually transforming lesson plans.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, April 20, 7:59 AM

It's true for me. I've found quite a few good lesson plan ideas via Pinterest. I wouldn't go so far as to say it is "transforming" but it is helpful. My one complaint is that too often good lesson plan ideas are linked to Teachers Pay Teachers dot com or similar pay site.

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it

Employees deserve feedback. So we give it--sometimes with great results, sometimes not so much.

But there's one phrase you can use that will instantly improve the impact of the feedback you give--whether the actual feedback is positive or negative.

The following comes from Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code (one of the few books I actually give to friends) and The Little Book of Talent (a book I've written about before) and ablog about performance improvement that belongs on your must-read list.

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, April 2, 7:01 AM

"

I'm giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.

That's it: just 19 words. But those words are powerful because they are not really feedback. They're a signal that creates something more powerful: a sense of belonging and connection.

Looking closer, the phrase contains several distinct signals:

1)    You are part of this group.

2)    This group is special; we have higher standards here.

3)    I believe you can reach those standards."

Why Aren't Teens Reading Like They Used To?

Why Aren't Teens Reading Like They Used To? | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it
A survey of data shows a marked drop in teenagers reading for pleasure. Researchers are trying to figure out whether the explosion of e-reading and digital diversions is behind the decline.
Tracee Orman's insight:

Harry Potter and The Hunger Games haven't been big hits for nothing. Lots of teens and adolescents still read quite a lot.

But a roundup of studies, put together by the nonprofit Common Sense Media, shows a clear decline over time. Nearly half of 17-year-olds say they read for pleasure no more than one or two times a year — if that.
