Eeva Kurttila-Matero's curator insight, June 25, 2014 9:21 AM

"Showing students that teachers of all subjects read books, not just the English teachers, is really important," says Jennifer Ludgate, English teacher

"The students would come in talking about what their PE or history teacher was reading, and that would spark really interesting discussions. It's especially good if they don't see people reading at home. "

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 10:15 PM
There are a couple of very interesting articles linked. The one about writing junk is important. Students and teachers still need to know how to write in a coherent way. As well, the one about laptops is interesting. Like any tool, digital tools are only as good as the thought that goes into choosing and using them.

A Model for Teacher Development: Precursors to Change

A Model for Teacher Development: Precursors to Change | Teacher's corner | Scoop.it
Teachers need to receive training on models of change. Teachers should be trained in identifying their own professional development needs based on their classroom performance, areas that they aren’t performing up to par based on their own personal self-assessments as well as feedback from students, colleagues, and supervisors followed by intentional processes to help make positive changes in their work environments.
