Book Review: "Story by Story" by Karen Chace

Book Review: "Story by Story" by Karen Chace | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

At a time when more emphasis is being placed on raising reading scores, teaching Common Core Standards, and building literacy programs, a professional storyteller and teaching artist shares a way to assist in these goals plus engage students by reminding and guiding us on how to make reading and telling stories fun.

Karen Chace’s new book Story by Story invites us to invigorate students by creating a storytelling club or “troupe” and hosting a festival at our own schools. She outlines a program to hear and appreciate folktales, personal narratives, and original student stories told out loud, and chronicles her successes and her mistakes along the way. We can all learn from this rich narrative. ..Read More....

Are any of you a fan of LEGO? Yes, it’s a standing ovation! You will happily acknowledge the masterpiece built by a 14 year-old: a real 3D printer, made of real LEGO. Yes, it works perfectly. Yes, we are serious. Creativity often finds its birth in need, a belief proven by this inventive engineer student, who absolutely wanted a 3D printer but sadly couldn’t afford it. The solution? Grabbing a box of LEGO, adding a little drop of glue here and there and getting busy! Big question is whether the next version will print LEGOs?..Read More....

ACM Students Build 14’ Carbon Fiber Bridge

ACM Students Build 14’ Carbon Fiber Bridge | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

Students enrolled in the Advanced Composites Manufacturing Certificate program at Great Bay Community College's Advanced Technology and Academic Center (ATAC) in Rochester, recently completed a new High Performance Fabrication course. Added in February, the course is part of a new specialization within the 6-month Advanced Composites Manufacturing Certificate (ACM) program which provides students with industrial training for employment in composites materials manufacturing.

Over the 4 week course, students were each required to work in the lab at ATAC to manufacture a bridge part using processes of oven curing of carbon fiber prepreg and infusion for fiberglass parts.   During the final class, parts were assembled to create a 14 foot long bridge. ”This project required students to use their knowledge of fiber orientation, flow behavior, mold use, and curing processes, as well as incorporation of applied math, physics, chemistry, and measurement” said Instructor Bret Blanchard.  “In a short amount of time students had to learn new processes, then apply the knowledge to create a product consisting of multiple parts.   This work required manual dexterity, preplanning, writing of work instructions, time management, problem solving, and revising. ..Read More....

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | School & Learning Today | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

.

A very thought provoking educational reform concept.  This may not be realistic for the US.  However, portions of this concept could easily be "cloned" into our current educational systems at district levels.
