PracTICE: Creativity Examples With ThingLink

PracTICE: Creativity Examples With ThingLink | Teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Creativity: Often I get asked from people if "Creativity" can get learned and even some say that it can't get learned (BTW: that are the people who don't have creativity)...

.

There are a multitude of tools which WE could use to foster the creativity of the learners, such as “Story Telling“, coding with Scratch and other programs, comics, and interactive images with links and videos such as “ThingLink“, which I will present here with some practical examples.

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Teaching and learning | Scoop.it
The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

Introducing Close Reading Strategies to Your Students

Introducing Close Reading Strategies to Your Students | Teaching and learning | Scoop.it
I want a way to introduce Close Reading to my students that will help them understand both the Why and the How behind the strategy.  I am a big fan of David Therialt's blog, "The Readiness is All" and his approach the analyzing a text or piece of artwork through the  S.C.O.U.T. and T3 design.…

Powerpoint has two approaches for close reading.  I love the way the second was initially designed for artwork.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, August 16, 2014 3:23 PM

Close reading is nothing new. As a matter of fact, close reading began with New Criticism of the 1950s. Close reading was the not the name of the approach readers were taught by which to approach text; that nomenclature has come upon us since the publication and adoption of the Common Core. If you were a student of English in the 60s through the late 70s and early 80s, you were probably doing close reading because that was how teachers of the era were taught to break down texts in the process of analysis. Seems new to many, but that is only because reading made a U-turn somewhere in the 1980s towards whole language and responsive reading and away from analytical, academic reading.

5 Key Predictors of Graduation and College- and Career-Readiness

5 Key Predictors of Graduation and College- and Career-Readiness | Teaching and learning | Scoop.it

The National Student Clearinghouse tracked nearly 6,300 first-time freshmen through graduation and beyond. They Clearinghouse found the following:

students who earned a 1650 or better on the SAT or a 24 or better on the ACT were four times more likely to graduate and enroll in college immediately.But the PSAT, taken in sophomore year, was an even stronger predictor; students who scored at or more than 145 on that test were 13 times as likely to go on to college.Completing at least one Advanced placement course in 11th grade also quadrupled college likelihood.For students not in poverty, completing rigorous coursework closed racial gaps almost entirely. For example, going just on the race of students not in poverty, black freshmen had a 28 percent likelihood of being college-ready by graduation, and Hispanic students a 39 percent probability, compared to 56 percent and 69 percent for white and Asian students respectively.Among students who completed Algebra 1 in 8th grade, at least one advanced class in 9th grade, and Algebra 2 and one Advanced Placement course by the end of 11th grade, the likelihood of going to college was 95 percent or more for all students, regardless of race.

Writing: Unit planner using 'backwards design' that aligned to Common Core

Writing: Unit planner using 'backwards design' that aligned to Common Core | Teaching and learning | Scoop.it

"I’ve been working on a multi-day or unit planner based in a backwards design format that also aligns with the Common Core. Today, I finished with a prototype I think is worth sharing. As a template model, I have designed the planner for grade 2, but based on feedback from my readers, I plan to make appropriate edits and create a similar format for each grade, K-12. I will offer the resultant planners on my website at no cost through the start of school, just as I am doing right now with the PARCC Aligned Writing Rubrics.   So please, download this WordForm and take a look. I’m really looking forward to hearing what you think!"
