All That Teachers Need to Know about Flipped Classroom- Tutorials, Tools and Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

All That Teachers Need to Know about Flipped Classroom- Tutorials, Tools and Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Hoopeston Area Professional Development | Scoop.it

"Several teachers now have already stated using the flipped classroom model in their teaching and some are still thinking about how to do it. If you are one of those who are keen on applying this learning/teaching strategy with your students then this resourceful section will provide you with all the materials, tips, ideas, and tools to flip your classroom.

 

A flipped classroom is a model in which the ordinary teaching activities which are done in class  like lecturing or demonstrations are recorded in videos and podcasts for students to access at home. The in-class time is used instead for deeper class discussions, students projects, one-one-one interventions, peer collaboration, and many more."

PARCC Assessments: UDL and Accessibility Features

PARCC Assessments: UDL and Accessibility Features | Hoopeston Area Professional Development | Scoop.it

The PARRC, a standardized test aligned to the Common Core, includes embedded scaffolds and accessibility features “allowable for all students” (p.20) in addition to accommodations for students with disabilities. Taken together, these supports ensure the test is universally designed for everyone, which leaves no one behind.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:42 PM

Thank you Katie for addressing the UDL aspects of PARCC assessment in your blog. As far as special education students are addressed, teachers should not make any assumptions. A closer reading of the actual accommodations makes clear that some testing accommodations must be addressed in a student's IEP as well as part of day-to-day instruction. Teachers will need to verify what the IEP clearly states and what the assessment offers.

What Close Reading Actually Means


Thus, what “close reading” really means in practice is disciplined re-reading of inherently complex and worthy texts.


As Tim Shanahan puts it in his helpful blog entry, “Because challenging texts do not give up their meanings easily, it is essential that readers re-read such texts,” while noting that “not all texts are worth close reading.”

Charles Fischer's curator insight, May 20, 2013 2:55 AM

Close reading can be done very successfully through Socratic Seminar. The key is to have complex texts, interpretive questions and then unrelenting follow-up questions to dig deeper.
