This teacher has students blog about their reading, then comments and asks questions to raise the level of student discourse.  Great way to focus students on proving their arguments from the text!

Five Old School Practices... that will raise student achievement | Annie Murphy Paul

Five Old School Practices... that will raise student achievement | Annie Murphy Paul | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it
More schools are getting rid of "old-fashioned" skills like penmanship and multiplication tables, but research shows students benefit from classic teaching methods.

 

“the key was taking that old-school method and encouraging students to use their knowledge to practice higher-level thinking skills.”

 

Five Old School Practices

Vocabulary - Research confirms that instruction in word roots allows students to learn new vocabulary and figure out the meaning of words in context more easily. Memorization - Rapid mental retrieval of basic facts is a prerequisite for doing more complex, and more interesting, kinds of math Practice - The only way to achieve this “automaticity,” so far as anyone has been able to determine, is to practice. Argumentation - Educational research on argumentation demonstrates that it helps students learn better too. Read Aloud - When students are read to frequently by a teacher, their vocabulary and their grasp of syntax and sentence structure improves.
