Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read

Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
New research shows it’s possible to pick up some of the signs of dyslexia in the brain even before kids learn to read. And this earlier identification may start to substantially influence how parents, educators and clinicians tackle the disorder.
Suvi Salo's insight:

"One of the key goals of early identification, Gabrieli says, is to help kids avoid the stigma of dyslexia."

We use science to support what we want and ignore it in teaching and learning. This would help many teachers and students work together so students can read and write effectively.

Ken Morrison's curator insight, Today, 6:44 PM
I have a wonderful friend who is currently a student teacher. I absolutely love chatting to her about her experiences and questions, as she challenges me to reflect on my own practice: to re-evaluate my strategies; to work out what it is I do and why; to tweak what isn’t working. Her questions are always intelligent, thought-provoking and full of exciting curiosity – she is going to make an exceptional teacher. A few weeks ago she asked me how to get students to ‘come to the party’; how to entice them to engage and participate in the learning experience so that it wasn’t a one-sided affair. Yikes! What a question. This got me thinking and I came to an interesting realisation: In the first five minutes, I can tell how a lesson is going to be received. Really. If, after the introductory minutes, my student have already slumped down into their seats, are gazing out the window or surreptitiously texting under their desks (yes, we do realize that is what you are doing; we don’t think that you are just staring at your crotch), then I know my job for the next 45 minutes is going to be a lot more difficult. I set the scene for my lesson in those first five minutes. Somehow, I need to ‘hook’ them in, pique their interest, give them a reason to be invested in what they are going to learn. I realise this is no small feat, so here are 5 tips for breaking with routine and shaking thinks up at the start of the lesson: 1. Rearrange the desks. (There is something about rearranged desks that makes students curious about the upcoming lesson..."What will happen today?" 2. Tell them not to take out their books. (this mixes up routine) 3. Ask a thought-provoking question. 4. Play a video clip. (strategically) 5. Play a game. (occasionally - very short)

Are Teachers More Stressed than Ever?

Are Teachers More Stressed than Ever? | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it

"I often hear people moan about teachers moaning. The general consensus is that teachers have a shorter day, work less hours in a week, earn a higher than average salary, and have a more relaxed career, yet still manage to moan more than most. I think it’s time we investigate what all the moaning is about."

12 Tips for New Teachers (And Those Starting Anew in 2014)

12 Tips for New Teachers (And Those Starting Anew in 2014) | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
By Jenny Edwards, PhD For all of you new teachers out there (and also those who have been in the profession for a while now), I wish you years of success, as you are in the greatest position of all— the position to influence the lives of many students. Right now, your current focus is probably on how to have a successful first few weeks of school. What might be the best ways to spend your time as you are preparing for the school year to start? What are some things you should keep in mind once the students arrive and class begins? Here are 12 tips for success as you begin your career (or school year) and continue growing in the teaching profession. Familiarize yourself with your school district’s website before school starts. Become familiar with the curriculum you will be using and learn about the district policies. Get to know your colleagues and begin to develop a good working relationship with them. Have the attitude of a learner. Be willing to share your ideas with them and be willing to learn from them. Get to know other school personnel, such as the secretaries, custodians, and cafeteria workers. Go out of your way to greet them. Seek out mentors. Identify people from whom you would especially like to learn and get to know them. Set up a classroom management system from the beginning of the year. Ask your colleagues what works for them and use ideas from your teacher training. Know exactly how you will manage the students the minute they walk in the door and use these strategies consistently throughout the year. Create lessons and materials for the first week of school prior to the start of school so that you will know exactly what you are going to do and will have everything ready to go. Think through when students will be turning in major assignments and stagger the due dates. Build positive relationships with your students by smiling, getting to know them, and treating them with respect. Build positive relationships with the parents of your students by making positive phone calls to them in the first several weeks of school. Introduce yourself, say something positive about their child, and let them know that you are looking forward to working with them and their child. Make sure they know how they can contact you and when you will be available. Make use of small bits of time throughout the day. If you have five extra minutes, what might you be able to accomplish? Call the parent immediately should an incident occur to explain what happened. People usually believe the first person they hear. Be sure to inform your principal as well. Ask yourself empowering questions throughout the day, such as “How can I help each of my students to enjoy learning today?” or “How can I build a positive relationship with each student?” Find more resources for heading back to school on ASCD's website.
