Do standards matter? A teacher’s perspective on the promise and potential of the Common Core

Do standards matter? A teacher’s perspective on the promise and potential of the Common Core | Learners | Scoop.it
I started teaching seven years ago, and I have worked in four different schools in three different states. I’ve always sought schools and environments with higher standards for what students should know and be able to do, as well as higher expectations for what teachers can accomplish.

Via Mel Riddile
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

I have been so opposed to Common Core that I never really opened myself to think about it's benefits. This provides a compelling case!

Why Teacher Performance Pay Won't Work

Why Teacher Performance Pay Won't Work | Learners | Scoop.it
If our congressmen and congresswomen can subject themselves to performance-based pay, then I believe we can have a more meaningful dialogue about teacher performance pay.
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

I have been doing a lot of research on performance based pay for one of my other classes. I have created a new perspective, which is: I am against any type of performance based pay. I think this will cause many teachers to strictly teach to the test, which I am also against.

Would You Send Your 7-Year-Old to an Online Elementary School?

Would You Send Your 7-Year-Old to an Online Elementary School? | Learners | Scoop.it
In recent years there’s been an uptick in the number of elementary and high school students who are taking classes online, but is it right for your child?
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

To be honest, I didn't even know this was a popular option! There are so many alternatives to public school; I wonder why that is. I do believe children and parents should have the right to school choice. Every child is different and we should not expect them to learn the same. Online education has inspired me to think about new perspectives!

Now go back and thank your teachers.
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

Such great advice. We are learning so much about different methods and curriculums and learning styles, but is that really going to help us get through our first teaching years? We need to be mentally prepared that it will probably not be everything we ever dreamed of, but if we love our job and our students, we can make it through.

Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity? - YouTube

Chelsi Rosen's insight:

This is one of the best Tedtalks I have ever seen. Sir Ken Robinson explains "intelligence is dynamic." What can we do in our classrooms to educate the whole child, not just what is inside their head? As a creative person, I hope I can help my students to keep their values of art and creativity intact.

State Assessments Tell Schools, Students and Parents Nothing

State Assessments Tell Schools, Students and Parents Nothing | Learners | Scoop.it
Assessments are supposed to help students learn their strengths and weaknesses, but state assessment results only come as a number for schools, which makes them useless.

Via Mel Riddile
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

"The state standardized tests provide nothing of value, nothing to help teachers help students, nothing to inform teachers about their strengths and weaknesses. They are worthless." This article directly relates to my latest narrative report. This confirms my assumptions about state testing, yet I am still open minded to a rebuttal.

Researchers at the University of Leicester have proven that students assign the most authority to teachers who care about them. If this is true, then you are demonstrating a wonderful principle: that respect comes from kind behavior.

Supporting Student Resilience in the Classroom

Supporting Student Resilience in the Classroom | Learners | Scoop.it
Watching a classroom of students working is fascinating. There are students who are engaged, who focus on the task and forge ahead. They get the job done on time, every time. There are other students
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

This is such a great and reassuring article that discusses a point we made in our discussion a few weeks ago. The role of a teacher can seem so overwhelming, especially having to deal with factors outside of our control. However, we need to focus on what we CAN control, and that is teaching our students resilience!

Such a great tool to refer to when we are addressing our classroom look-fors! Also great to refer back to when I have my own classroom. It is great to hear the feedback from students who prove that the layout and look of a classroom really do impact how they learn! The alternative desk layouts also slightly challenge my initial perspective, which had desks in rows facing the front of the class!

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Learners | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

 


Via Gust MEES
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

Such a great graphic to reflect on the progress that has been made in education. Just think of all the possibilities the future holds for education and our students!  I can't wait to become a teacher so I can appreciate these obstacles that have been overcome, even though our system does have a long way to go!

Chelsie DeBus's comment, May 8, 2014 4:35 PM
I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.

How To Talk To Difficult Students — Smart Classroom Management

How To Talk To Difficult Students — Smart Classroom Management | Learners | Scoop.it
Most teachers talk to difficult students too much, because somewhere along the line they’ve gotten the idea that the more attention they give them, the better teacher they’ll be. So they pull them aside for pep-talks, reminders, and lectures.

Via Ramon Toralba
Chelsi Rosen's insight:

During my classroom observations, I've noticed quite a few difficult students that act out and disturb the class. I' wondered what the most effective technique was to help these students. This provides great ideas and alternatives if the first few aren't successful!
