 Knocking down the myths about math.
Math is not about speed, memorization or learning lots of rules. There is no such thing as “math people” and non-math people. Girls are equally capable of the highest achievement. This session will include interviews with students.

How to Develop Positive Classroom Management | Edutopia

How to Develop Positive Classroom Management | Edutopia | Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it

A recent report found that educators believe that the secret to effective discipline is proactively building relationships, not reacting punitively to student misbehavior. In surveys with 300 New York City public school teachers that included an open-ended question about the largest threat to school safety, the most common response was a lack of cohesive culture and positive relationships between staff and students.

Quality Rubrics / Checklist

Quality Rubrics / Checklist | Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it
Typically, rubrics are set up in a table format and can be looked at through five different components. However, rubrics do not have to be tables - they're often the easiest way to capture the various components of quality rubrics. The document is a way for the learner to self-assess without waiting for an adult's feedback, using indicators of quality that make sense (and are often informed by them). What does a good rubric look like?

Summer PD: Join The Web Tools Collective

Summer PD: Join The Web Tools Collective | Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it
"Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time."
-- Tagore, Bengali poet

As part of Edutopia's summer professional development experiences, we are starting a Web Tools Collective to explore and learn with other teachers from around the world. We plan to "study" a variety of web tools and resources, and identify ways that they can be used in the classroom. The Web Tools Collective is a flexible, open-learning experience. We will provide a learning space (Edutopia blogs and groups) and a loose structure for exploration. You are welcome to jump in and out as your schedule and interest allows. You can post daily, weekly, just once or twice, or you can even just lurk.

Often I wonder if I have mixed-up, or even mangled an expressions. Or affended someone while saying a foreign-language faux pas. Sometimes I am even confused about confusing terms, or I have a tongue malfunction and mispronounced commonly words -- Well, look no further, they're all explained in this useful guide.

 

A helpful source to double-check your writings before you hit submit.

Instructional Strategies - Enhancing Education - Carnegie Mellon University | Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it
After selecting the learning objectives and assessments for the course, we need to think about the various instructional activities we will use to engage students with the material and enable them to meet the objectives. Of course, the key is to align instructional strategies with the other two components. Many instructional strategies are flexible, and can be used in service of several learning objectives, but some of them are better suited for a particular set of objectives. In most cases, we will need to use a combination of instructional strategies.
