13 of the ugliest animals on the planet

13 of the ugliest animals on the planet | Switch On - "Teaching and Learning" | Scoop.it
Paula Jamieson's insight:

Believe-it-or-not informational pieces about 13 of the UGLIEST animals on the planet! Short information is linked to full articles on each creature. 

 

Perfect for a research or speech project, to inspire and nurture creative writing or even to encourage rich oral language and questioning. 

 

I wouldn't send learners to this site indedentantly as it has advertising and the potential to 'lead' to links that may not be child friendly.

Paula Jamieson's insight:

This blog is always an inspiration but this post inparticular got me thinking about the classrooms I see in a wide variety of NZ schools. So many of the teachers I come across are still hooked up on the 'I need more computers or devices' rather than focusing on the collaboration and authentic task........I plan to change this! (One conversation at a time)

Education Rethink: What Does It Mean to be a Great Teacher? (Ten Ideas)

Education Rethink: What Does It Mean to be a Great Teacher? (Ten Ideas) | Switch On - "Teaching and Learning" | Scoop.it

I'm trying to make sense out of my first three days of teaching sixth grade. I can tell that I didn't do enough with my monolingual students, both instructionally and relationally. I allowed language to be more of a barrier than it needed to be. I also recognize that I didn't personalize instruction, both in the sense of making it relevant and in the sense of giving freedom and allowing for choices. So far, it seems like eighth graders will demand autonomy, while sixth graders are still a lingering a little more in the teacher-pleaser mode.
