Linda Alexander's curator insight, July 2, 11:37 AM

Terrific piece--with an eye directed at what's most conducive to student learning.  These varying approaches, self-discipline versus more compliant/disciplinary environments are far too often the divide between higher income and lower income school environments (but need not be).  What are we preparing our children for in the long term?

3 Ways of Getting Student Feedback to Improve Your Teaching

3 Ways of Getting Student Feedback to Improve Your Teaching | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Why You Must Reflect and Improve
Students are what we do. They are the center of our classroom, not us. However, as a teacher, I am the most impactful single person in the classroom. Honest feedback from our students will help me level up.

I've been doing this for more than ten years. Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry -- and sometimes I'm mortified. But I can honestly say that every single piece of feedback I've received has made me a better teacher. And great teachers are never afraid of having or inviting hard conversations. This is one of best practices that has helped me to be a better, more excited teacher every year.

Student Voice is invaluable to the effectiveness of the educator.
Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 2, 10:20 AM

i agree!  As a teacher, I always sought to improve and make my classroom more effective for students.  End of year surveys helped a lot.  I also had students write letters to next year's students.  This gave me insight into how the course and classroom activities helped or hampered their learning.  summer is a great -- there is actually time to reflect.  as lessons change, there is time to do researxh and gather resources.

Mindfulness is not a program and technique. It is a practice which draws from the root "praxis." Having said this, mindfulness and being present are important in teaching.

Five Peaceful Steps To Delivering Critical Feedback

Five Peaceful Steps To Delivering Critical Feedback | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

I know of something even more difficult and frightful and face-flushed-all-red than getting feedback.

Giving it.

In my role as assistant principal, I give a lot of feedback.  I give it to students; I give it to staff; I provide it to parents when appropriate.  I give it when requested and formal (e.g., teacher evaluation) and when it is not solicited, or expected, or necessarily wanted.  So why is it so difficult?  After all, isn't the "giver" of feedback the one in the driver's seat, the one in the "active" (command) position, while the recipient plays the passive role, listening (maybe) and absorbing (possibly) your wisdom?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 18, 2014 12:47 PM

We should realize other governments are failing our Schools, teachers, and students, hence the communities they live in. We should not just ask where male teachers have gone. We should ask, "What are the reasons male teachers left the profession?" This is not just about male teachers leaving and not entering teaching. It is about the systemic reasons they leave. Schools are places of oppression. It is in this light we should ask our questions. For example, we should ask about the increase in part-time contracts.

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Infographics have already established themselves as engaging news and marketing tools, but they are also entering the education space in new and exciting ways.

A good graphic can fit these standards by reinforcing to students that their conclusions should be grounded in evidence and by challenging their ability to organize a hierarchy of systems, a.k.a. the ability to tell what pieces of information are the most important.
