Great accessibility in #SouthAfrica education context!

How Do We Make Writing? Five Ways to Hack Your Writing Workshop - Brilliant or Insane

How Do We Make Writing? Five Ways to Hack Your Writing Workshop - Brilliant or Insane | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

gelaStockman"In a different life, I was an English teacher. In fact, I spent the first half of my twenty-four year career in education writing beside middle and high school kids. Writing workshop was my passion, and Nancie Atwell was my hero (well, she still is). Naturally, I was thrilled when my principal tapped me to design and teach an entire course specifically devoted to this endeavor. For many years, all of the kids in our middle school enjoyed writers workshop beside their core English classes, and I got to be their teacher.

 

I loved this, and I loved teaching so much that when I stepped out of the classroom to begin doing staff development, I refused to let it go. Nearly a decade ago, I founded the WNY Young Writers Studio, a community of writers and teachers of writing. Then, I began doing a whole lot of action research.

 

Here’s what I learned: When many young writers sit down to confront flat, empty screens and pages, they experience frustration and even defeat. Wading into procedures that often feel contrived using tools that are completely intangible paralyzes them."

60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Nowadays, many educators use the same methods over and over again in their lessons for students to express themselves and demonstrate their new knowledge. Today’s students want to express themselves in a variety of different ways. They want their academic work to be relevant, engaging and fun.

Below is a diverse list adapted from resources found at fortheteachers.org of potential student products or activities learners can use to demonstrate their mastery of lesson content. The list also offers several digital tools for students to consider using in a technology-enriched learning environment.

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 3, 11:51 AM

Children, and for that matter teachers, bring curiousity with them. Teachers can help create contexts where that curiousity remains vibrant.
