8 Steps To Ensure Great Communication With Parents - Edudemic

8 Steps To Ensure Great Communication With Parents - Edudemic | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
As you’re preparing your lesson plans and classrooms for the first day of school (which may have already happened for some of you!), keeping in touch with parents is probably on your mind. Communicating classroom expectations and other pertinent information at the beginning of the school year is critical to get everyone started off on …

Via Suvi Salo
Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

Teachers, lets plan to engage parents from the start.  Establishing common language, shared agreements, expectations, etc. from the beginning is a great way to get buy-in from the parents at the start of the school year.  Engage parents immediately and form a sturdy partnership with them, by letting them know how often you'll be contacting them, and that they are welcome in your learning community.

Where I worked I communicated a lot with parents. This seemed to be a problem for the School managers who wanted to monitor and control the communication.

The 8 Minutes That Matter Most - Edutopia

The 8 Minutes That Matter Most - Edutopia | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
The eight minutes that matter most are the beginning and endings. If a lesson does not start off strong by activating prior knowledge, creating anticipation, or establishing goals, student interest wanes, and you have to do some heavy lifting to get them back. If it fails to check for understanding, you will never know if the lesson's goal was attained.

Here are eight ways to make those eight minutes magical.

Via John Evans
Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

Teachers, please remember:  A lesson can not simply start-- a level of engagement must take place.  Engage your students; get them excited about learning... make them feel a part of the teaching and learning experience.  Make it an engaged dialogue!

You Can't Teach Understanding - TeachThought

You Can't Teach Understanding - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
A cardinal principle in aiming at understanding is that understanding requires different pedagogy than acquisition of knowledge and skill. Knowledge and skills are best developed by direct instruction and reinforcement if we want recall and fluency. Understanding, however, involves something beyond mere acquisition for later straightforward use. To understand, students must do something with, adapt, and sometimes question what they (think they) know.

They have to think and rethink.

A Beginner's Guide To Personalized Learning - TeachThought

A Beginner's Guide To Personalized Learning - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
There is a difference between personalized learning and differentiation.

Differentiation is a kind of personalized instruction, where teachers adjust process, & product, according to a student’s readiness, interest, & learning style. Planning of the learning starts with the content, and the content remains the same for all students. This is a school and curriculum-centered approach that attempts to amend the delivery of the content to match the student’s needs, strengths, and general readiness.

Personalized learning starts with the learner and asks the question, “What does this student need to understand, and how best can that happen?” This is a student-centered approach, and is built around the idea of recognizing the vast differences in students–not just in terms of literacy or schema, but an authentic need to know.

Creativity block, similar to writer's block, is a mental state that makes you feel incapacitated and unable to generate new ideas to move the process of whatever you are working on ahead.

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Edudemic | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
As the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development points out, today’s educators face a catch-22 — they must “help decidedly unstandardized students meet an expanding set of rigorous, standardized learning targets.” Fortunately, teachers have a solution to this dilemma in differentiated instruction.

A differentiated classroom accommodates the heterogeneity of students by tailoring instruction to each student’s backgrounds, interests, skill, and readiness levels. Read on to learn more about differentiated teaching, why it works, and how to implement it in your classroom.

Via John Evans
Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

When we engage in whole child teaching and/or teach with the mindset that "Everyday I must do my best teaching so that students may do their best learning," we are putting differentiated instruction into action.  Differentiated instruction says to each child, "I care about you, and how you learn."

Teaching Students, Not Subjects: Why We Need a Deeper Learning Approach

Teaching Students, Not Subjects: Why We Need a Deeper Learning Approach | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

One thing I learned right away when honored with the National Teacher of the Year Award is that people wanted to know my philosophy of teaching. The answer has always been easy: Kids before content. In my classroom, I don't teach English. I teach students.  Everything we know about what it takes to succeed in today's economy and society suggests that our nation needs more individuals with nimble minds capable of creative, innovative thinking, and who have the perseverance to take on -- and learn from -- challenges. These are the demands of the 21st century. We should prepare students by helping them develop these skills across all subjects.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 26, 2014 1:27 PM

Thinking about students and people first speaks to the relational nature of teaching. We are always teaching someone and that makes the content part of a larger, complex conversation.

 

Students are subjects who are subjected to living in a complex world which acts on them. Teaching is about exploring the spaces provided.

 

The challenge for School reformers and managers is they want certainty where none exists.

Nichole Swink's curator insight, September 26, 2014 2:07 PM

This article sums up why teaching never becomes a boring profession; teachers always have to change and make adjustments to how we teach content in order to help students learn. In the process, we as teachers are always learning to be creative and learning from our students.

Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

I love this idea.  At my son's school, the fall conferences are facilitated by the teachers, and the spring conferences are lead by the students.  It is a very nice way of allowing students to take responsibility for their effort and work-- to take pride in it, and/or recognize areas that need to be strengthened.  When students are aware that they will have to converse with their parents and teacher(s) about their work, they may take more time to ensure they are producing work that they can be proud of.

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking - TeachThought

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

"A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?

In A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, Warren Berger suggests that there are three main questions which help in problem solving: Why questions, What If questions, and How questions."

A New Approach to Education

A New Approach to Education | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

The key to compassion is being predisposed to help—and that can be learned.

There is an active school movement in character education and teaching ethics. But I don't think it's enough to have children just learn about ethical virtuosity, because we need to embody our ethical beliefs by acting on them. This begins with empathy.

There are three main kinds of empathy, each involving distinct sets of brain circuits.

 

 The first is cognitive empathy: understanding how other people see the world and how they think about it, and understanding their perspectives and mental models. This lets us put what we have to say in ways the other person will best understand.

The second is emotional empathy, a brain-to-brain linkage that gives us an instant inner sense of how the other person feels—sensing their emotions from moment to moment. This allows "chemistry" in our connections with people..

The skills we want to build in students are the skills adults must cultivate within themselves.  We can use the Toolkit for Promoting Empathy in Schools as a guide for our own development.  Step 1 from the Toolkit includes creating a safe space, developing emotional competency and leading by example.  Let’s look at how we can use these tools in terms of adult relationships at school.

Is Empathy Enough To Combat Gaps in Diversity? - UnSectored

Is Empathy Enough To Combat Gaps in Diversity? - UnSectored | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
Building empathy to make a relationship sustainable takes time. We all know that empathy can’t immediately solve problems. It can’t create jobs. It can’t spawn a windfall of money or a cornucopia of food.


It CAN build rapport that leads people to trust your credibility. It CAN challenge your assumptions by forcing you to ask questions and embrace curiosity.

While it can be important for us to reflect the communities we serve, we know that this is not always possible. The social sector is far from a utopia and the lack of diversity in certain situations can certainly create gaps. But we owe it to the integrity of the sector to fill these gaps by properly acquainting ourselves and empathizing with our communities. It may be a small step towards problem-solving but as the old saying goes “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness”.

 

Empathy won’t turn on all the lights but it can go a long way toward fully illuminating sustainable solutions.
