I hope every student has more than one teacher who makes them excited about their learning. One is not enough.

Alina Ghimpu-Hague's curator insight, May 9, 2014 1:19 PM

Argues in favour of a model for secondary education that incorporates practices most commonly associated with college teaching - e.g., using mentoring techniques, and allowing students to "major" in certain self-selected subjects best suited to their strengths. The latter idea is described in terms that sound very similar to the way secondary education operates in the UK; it would be very interesting to explore this issue further in light of the relatively recent emphasis in Britain on wider-ranging student performance indicators such as the English Baccalaureate.

Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management

Training the Brain to Listen: A Practical Strategy for Student Learning and Classroom Management | Interesting resources for English Teachers | Scoop.it

Editor's note: This post is co-authored by Marcus Conyers who, with Donna Wilson, is co-developer of the M.S. and Ed.S. Brain-Based Teaching degree programs at Nova Southeastern University. During the school year, students are expected to listen to and absorb vast amounts of content. But how much time has been devoted to equipping students with ways to disconnect from their own internal dialogue (self-talk) and to focus their attention fully on academic content that is being presented? Listening is hard work even for adults. When students are unable to listen effectively, classroom management issues arise.

Añadir contexto significa relacionar la realidad con las experiencias de aprendizaje de nuestrx alumnx y sus conocimientos previos. Significa poner ese andamiaje que ayuda a crear productos únicos y compartidos con su entorno; bien sea porque ayuda a pensar con claridad y rigor, bien porque ayuda a crear un producto único y original, bien`porque ayuda a estructurar la lengua asociada a cualquier proceso.
