Marzano's 9 Effective Instructional Strategies (Infographic)

Marzano's 9 Effective Instructional Strategies (Infographic) | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Effective schools make a big difference in student achievement. Effective leadership makes a positive difference, too. Effective teachers, however, directly impact student learning and achievement. It’s been shown that teachers who have a large repertoire of effective instructional strategies teach differently."

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, February 19, 2014 4:30 AM

A literacy-rich environment in classrooms and schools, for example, is an important K-12 foundation to support and extend effective instruction. And, effective vocabulary instruction (here, here, here, and here, too) is an integral part of a comprehensive literacy framework and supports student learning and achievement. Building a common language educators is also important, though frequently lacking. A common language helps teachers, coaches, and administrators communicate more easily and specifically around instructional strategies associated with literacy instruction, educational initiatives, and the Common Core State Standards

The Busy Teacher's Quick Guide To Blended Learning | Edudemic

The Busy Teacher's Quick Guide To Blended Learning | Edudemic | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

Blended learning is a combination of some face-to-face teaching and some online teaching. It is a great way for teachers to bring online components into the forefront, rather than just using digital materials as supplemental (often at home) course materials.

 

Blended learning has a huge advantage – it doesn’t prescribe that particular activities must be online or in person. There isn’t a particular percentage of teaching and learning that has to happen in the classroom or not.

 

You can tailor it to your needs, and do some experimentation. It is so flexible, and can be something different for each teacher, each class, or each student. One class may lean heavily on the online component and another may not, depending on the availability and appropriateness of materials available

Vision for the Future: The Other 21st Century Skills

Vision for the Future:  The Other 21st Century Skills | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Having a vision for the future is an natural extension of Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill I proposed.  A vision for the future enhances hope and optimism. To clarify, having a vision for the future is identifying and taking steps toward fulfilling one’s dream.  It goes beyond and is qualitatively different than identifying what one wants to be when one grows up or thinking about college.  It is about dreams."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 13, 2014 4:08 PM

As we look at education today ask yourself does the process support students ability to dream their vision? Do we promote a vision of the future as they move through the school system (and think K - 16)?

This post explores these issues and provides resources to help you explore them.

Find a link to Seth Godin's book Stop Stealing Dreams (What is School For?). Check out a video where students share their dream of the future. Consider the guiding questions provided to help your students think about the future (and see two answers from students in Grades 5-6). There are many resources to help you and your class think about this issue and how it relates to the 21st century.

From my experience foundation level (bridging to degree and below) students who have a clear sense of direction (vocational) are generally more motivated and engaged than those who don't know who they are, what types of vocations they are suited to and how to get there.

Emotional Intelligence Is The Best Predictor Of Career Success

Emotional Intelligence Is The Best Predictor Of Career Success | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

'What determines the probable future career success of individuals? Is it intelligence, technical knowledge and skills, their socio-economic background or educational success? Are the forces that make success the same for Generations X and Y as they are for the Baby Boomers? These questions have been researched extensively by recruiters, talent management experts and human behaviour researchers in the past decade. The answers now point to emotional competencies. Researchers for the past century have investigated the determinants of career success. While intelligence has been the most consistent factor in determining job success, the definition of intelligence has expanded to include emotional intelligence. A 2006 study by Accenture of 251 executives in six countries concluded that while intelligence is important for career success, it’s a matter of how you are smart. Interpersonal competence, self-awareness and social awareness — all elements of emotional intelligence — are better predictors of who will succeed and who won’t." | by Ray Williams

This interactive website allows you to explore climate change from the following perspectives:

* By region (and it is global so you click on the location you want to begin)

* By theme (and there are seven themes):

   - Food Security

   - Food Emissions

   - Climate impact on production

   - Climate impact on people

   - Adaptation

   - Mitigation

   - Policy and Finance

Quoting from Larry Ferlazzo's post Big Facts is "intended to provide a credible and reliable platform for fact checking amid the range of claims that appear in reports, advocacy materials and other sources. Full sources are supplied for all facts and figures and all content has gone through a process of peer review."

This is an open access resource. Much more information may be found at the site. (And think about checking out Larry Ferlazzo's post at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2014/02/08/very-very-impressive-new-interactive-site-on-climate-change/

Option 1: Open-Book & Take-Home Tests

 

Option 2: Student-Made Tests

 

How My Students Create And Study For Their Own Exams

This is the process I use for student-created math final exams in my classroom. Your process may differ depending on grade level, content area, or other local concerns.

I give the structure for the tests students are required to create such as, “Include 15 calculations and 5 word problems with 2 from each of the 10 subsections of the chapter”I make a copy of each test and change the numbers, but not the structure of the equations. They knew I would do this and that the numbers will be different than the ones they usedStudents are assigned homework to make practice tests on their own, using the template of the test they created and changing the numbers themselvesIn class, for further review, students exchange their practice tests with partners for study and to the confirm accuracy of their answers (as I don’t have an answer key to all of their self-created tests)
