Student Engagement – The Missing Link in the GCC’s Education Reform Strategy

Student Engagement – The Missing Link in the GCC’s Education Reform Strategy | school improvement process | Scoop.it
GCC governments must bring the education system in line with the needs of the employment market; and, to do so, they must involve the students themselves, a group often overlooked in the reform process.
The Rice Process's insight:
Engage all constituents for school improvement. Structure and provide evaluation opportunities. Students will identify the value of their education.

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students | school improvement process | Scoop.it

"When we hear the word genius, certain people come immediately to mind—Albert Einstein in mathematics, or Warren Buffett in investing—but what exactly sets these people apart?

It’s easy to simply shrug and say to ourselves, “Those people are just different.  They have something most people don’t, and it’s as simple as that.”

But the steps taken to arrive at a place of genius are actually more concrete, and have less to do with innate talent, than you might think.

The Geography and Literacy Connection

The Geography and Literacy Connection | school improvement process | Scoop.it

"What do you think of when you hear the word literacy? Depending on what you teach, chances are geography is not the first thought that comes to mind. But believe it or not, geography and literacy naturally share many similarities. And you can deepen students’ learning in both geography and literacy when they are integrated in the curriculum."

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:49 AM

The geography and literacy connection helps new generation student apply common core to better be prepared in the 21st century for vocation and keen awareness of geopgraphy, history and the world around them. Common core allows them to apply critical thinking and connections to the wolrd around them including a thurough understanding of geopgraphy. History and geography are being integrated to apply a different way of preparing students and creating a better awareness of changes in our world. literacy will not only be focused on reading but studying and analyzing data and statistics that help them become better integrated in the world around them.

Ana Melo's curator insight, November 4, 2013 9:41 AM

Geography provides a lot of fundamental knowledge and gives you also a sense of place, which I find very relevant in times of globalization where you belong everywhere and nowhere simultaneously.

Chris Cividino's curator insight, November 8, 2013 12:06 AM

Understanding key terminology in geography is paramount to demonstrating deep knowledge of geographical concepts.
