Take a look at this visual that describes the learning progression. It looks at three questions as the starting point:

* What's the learning outcome for the lesson?

* How will I know if students have achieved it?

* How will I check if students have achieved it?

A variety of ideas are shared for each of these questions...short and sweet, and great for visual learners.

Great graphic for teachers to identify the strength of their learning intentions and outcomes.

If you have not used infographics with your class this infographic may be what moves you try them with your students. Research tells us that many of our students are visual learners, and great infographics provide information that is accessible. Mia MacMeekin provides an infographic that looks at four areas.

* What is an infographic?

* Why an infographic?

* What are the benefits?

* Can it change education
* What is the reach?

The joy of infographics is that students can also create them. Take some time to explore this post, and consider using them in your classroom.

Cursive writing? Should we teach it or not? Many states are still requiring cursive writing be taught, but it is not part of the Common Core. This infographic provides information about why it is important that students learn cursive.

Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat leerlingen lesstof beter opnemen als ze handgeschreven notities maken. Gewoon leren schrijven en het ontwikkelen van je handschrift blijft dus van groot belang.

Check out the notes from the talk above, consider watching the video embedded within the post and think about new ways to work with your students this year about the concept of failure. If you are an engineer failure you understand that failure is a teaching tool, allowing you to improve the project, but in education most students consider failure just that...they have failed. A couple of quotes found in this visalization are below. What are your thoughts as you read them?

* Have courage. It's not easy to do new things!

* No failure means no risk which means nothing new.
