If nothing else, modeling this may help students who are frustrated by reading material they don't understand.

Reading Sage: Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) | Bloom's Taxonomy vs. Norman Webb's depth of knowledge

The Common Core Standards are the cornerstones of the Smarter Balanced and PARCC assessments, Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (scale of cognitive demand) and Blooms Revised Taxonomy (levels of intellectual ability) are the framework and the structures that will be used to evaluate students. Assessing curriculum, developing formative assessments, evaluation curriculum, and evaluation of students knowledge at the highest levels is being shared by two progressive cognitive matrices. Depth of knowledge, and complexity of knowledge is the heart of the more rigorous assessments being implemented in 2014. They share many ideas and concepts yet are different in level of cognitive demand, level of difficulty, complexity of verbs vs. depth of thinking required, and the scale of cognitive demand. Teachers need to learn how the frameworks are used to develop curriculum and how to use them to enhance instructions. Teachers and students can use Blooms Questions Stems and Webb’s DOK questions stems to create higher order thinking and improve achievement. 80% of the PARCC assessments will be based on the highest levels of blooms and the deepest levels of Webb’s DOK. Are you ready to use the DOK or Blooms daily in your class?

Once kids can decode fluently, reading comprehension depends heavily on knowledge. By failing to provide a solid grounding in basic subjects we inadvertently hobble children's ability in reading comprehension.

Can you teach grit?

Can you teach grit? | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Can you teach grit? The research has teachers abuzz about this term. Let's explore and learn how to teach it and talk about it.

Via Lisa Durff
Sharrock's insight:

One of things I've learned about motivation is about intrinsic rewards over extrinsic rewards. as having more impact on grit-like qualities in people. When you are only focusing on your own interests, rather than what you will get from others (they will always disappoint), you are more willing to take risks to achieve the goals. Your goals are more important to you. some research even suggests that extrinsic rewards take away power of your intrinsic rewards. This may be the true danger of "selling out", something that is not necessarily a sign of immaturity but an insight into the relationships of intrinsic rewards to extrinsic rewards and autonomy.

I think this is the key to developing "grit". Grit is that constellation of resilience skills and factors drawn on to achieve your goals. <br>

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply

Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

The Gap - between educational researchers and classroom practitioners

There really does exist a space for a challenging, interesting, thought-provoking mainstream journal. Like the TES but younger, more lithe, more cutting. There is a space and a need for such a journal.
