Is Your Child's Teacher 'Highly Qualified?'

Is Your Child's Teacher 'Highly Qualified?' | librarianonthefly | Scoop.it

"Is your child's teacher highly qualified? Thanks to a loophole snuck into the bill to end the federal government shutdown, there's really no way of knowing.

Putting someone with 20 hours of classroom experience on the same level as someone with National Board Certification in Teaching is like thinking a 15-year-old with a learner's permit and an adult with a commercial driver's license along with school bus and passenger endorsements are equally qualified to drive the school bus

how do we fix this?

Increased reliance on technology has made handwriting largely obsolete, but some state fighting to save tradition
Cindy Rogers's insight:

As a classroom teacher, I always found 10 minutes a day to work on handwriting, although it was not required.  I watched how learning this skill transformed one little guy from a  struggling student into an author who loves to write.  No one had taught him to print or write  at all, and he used the alphabet chart in the room to form every letter.

I’ve done a bit of reading, but I haven’t seen any of the flipped educators discuss the role of their librarian in their practice.

But I see flipping as a serious sweet spot for the talents of librarians.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, November 1, 2013 1:59 PM

I want to flip but not sure how to start. How do I go about recording and demonstrating library research? Has anyone already had a go at this, I would love to see some examples.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, November 15, 2013 2:38 AM
Maybe it is about time we librarians workout how to do this. If anyone wants to talk about how let me know. Not that I have any idea but talking about it may help point us in the right direction.
