Four Ways to Foster Independent Readers and Writers

Four Ways to Foster Independent Readers and Writers | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

By Nicole Zuerblis As an elementary reading specialist, my passion and my goal is always to give students the confidence to see themselves as readers and writers. It seems to be a universal goal that teachers want students to become more independent.

How prisons can help inmates live meaningful lives

How prisons can help inmates live meaningful lives | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it
In the United States, the agencies that govern prisons are often called ‘Department of Corrections.’ And yet, their focus is on containing and controlling inmates. Dan Pacholke, Deputy Secretary for the Washington State Department of Corrections, shares a different vision: of prisons that provide humane living conditions as well as opportunities for meaningful work and learning.

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it
I want to explain the use of what I call “frameworks” in my college teaching. I have used them during nine years of teaching graduate and undergraduate classes, and my students tell me that they are particularly helpful. Although I teach in Utica College’s Education program, this tool has application across a broad number of disciplines and courses at a variety of levels.

Did I Plagiarize? The Types and Severity of Plagiarism Violations | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it
Plagiarism is a hot topic in the academic world, but it applies in all aspects of our lives. In a country and culture that values intellectual property, it is imperative that we are conscious of plagiarism guidelines and standards. The reality is, in many facets of life, when we make mistakes, we can claim ignorance.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 20, 10:02 PM

Check out this new eBook from the Smithsonian Science Education Center. You may download it for the iPad or Mac and it will be interactive. It is also available as a pdf.

There is also an animated map in the interactive version.

Help students learn about why insects are beneficial, how they survive and how they impact their ecosystem.
