"I mean, when you ask a kid who doesn't like school, "Why not?," you never hear him say, "because it's too hard." Kids say, "It's boring."

Brain-Targeted Teaching is new to me, but it makes sense.  I know my learning is affected by my environment, which makes me wonder how any learning gets done in overcrowded classrooms with no natural light.  Good article to discuss with teachers.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, May 25, 2013 10:46 AM

I truly believe that educators must understand brain functioning in order to be the best teacher, administrator, coach, et al. Last week I sat in on a session about brain based learning and the common core; had I put into practice all that the presenter urged, we would have never gotten to the academics. Moderation is key.

There are some excellent resources for explaining and reviewing close reading.  I'm not a fan of worksheets, but these materials may help teachers develop their own approach to close reading.

John Scott Lucas's curator insight, June 20, 2013 12:17 AM

Some excellent unit plans for teaching Close Reading in grades 6-12.  Follows Common Core standards, but also helpful to those of us in VIrginia.

Super simple.   Easy to understand.  This may be one of the best articles I've read on this concept.....there's been so much fuss and it's really only 3 simple steps.

Strategies principals use to evaluate teachers by annotating, analyzing and reflecting.
