Ever since I observed Pekku Peura's class six weeks ago, I have been wondering how such methods could work in a social studies classroom. Math, it seems to me, is tailor-made for a mastery-based, individual approach.

How students in Uruguayan schools are being taught English over the Internet

How students in Uruguayan schools are being taught English over the Internet | GLOBAL GLEANINGS: Culling Content on Global Education, Diversity, Environmental Stewardship, and Service. | Scoop.it
In Uruguay, it was recognized that the gap between the abilities and capacities of many teachers to teach English, and student needs to learn English (which became compulsory in 2008) was so huge in many parts of the country that they needed to do things differently than they had done in the past. Instead of having teachers learn English separately, might it be possible to have them learn alongside their students, in their own classrooms?

When we put ourselves in another person’s shoes, we are often more sensitive to what that person is experiencing and are less likely to tease or bully them. By explicitly teaching students to be more conscious of other people’s feelings, we can create a more accepting and respectful school community.

The movement to “go green” has been growing stronger over the past few decades. People are thinking more about the everyday changes they can make to help make planet Earth a little nicer and less touched by the harm of pollution. Might as well, since most of us are going to be stuck here for the rest of our lives.

Whether you’re building a wind turbine for your home or just planting a garden, there are a lot of DIY ways for you to go green.

Race Biases Teachers’ Expectations for Students

,When evaluating the same black student, white teachers expect significantly less academic success than black teachers, a new Johns Hopkins University study concludes. This is especially true for black boys.
When a black teacher and a white teacher evaluate the same black student, the white teacher is about 30 percent less likely to predict the student will complete a four-year college degree, the study found. White teachers are also almost 40 percent less likely to expect their black students will graduate high school.
