Teaching about Emmett Till

Teaching about Emmett Till | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"In memory, Emmett Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955). Lynched this day in history. Till was crucified by the mainstream press. Headlines from newspapers such as the Washington Post referred to him as the 'Wolf-Whistler.' (A 9/19/1955 article in the Post begins: 'Two white men, accused of killing a wolf-whistling Negro boy, went on trial in a steamy Mississippi Delta courtroom today, their two-year-old boys in their laps.' Till's mother's courageous decision, to have an open casket funeral and share photos of his mutilated body with the world, helped inspire the modern civil rights movement."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 29, 2014 9:18 AM

Revisionist history would have us imagine that the Civil Rights movement was not triggered by moments of horrific miscarriages of justice; this was one of those galvinizing events.  Here are classroom resources about Emmett Till (A key primary document is the Look Magazine interview with the murderers).

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, August 30, 2014 1:12 AM

This is a part of my personal history remembrance. At the time there was no press that reported on this. Just JET Magazine and the black newspapers the Journal and Guide. The pictures were so unusual that we all gasped. The body was repulsively mutilated. I can still see the images in my mind.

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

#TeachingEmpathy - Education World: Teaching Empathy in a Post-Empathetic World | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

How do we teach "empathy"? It’s a fair question, followed up with, “How do we have the time to teach something like ‘empathy’ in our academically rigorous classes?” Often bundled up and pushed aside as non-compulsory “character education”, this sort of work can sometimes seem arbitrary and time-consuming. However, the science shows there is nothing further from the truth. In fact, an empathic school is a smarter school.

Multiple studies have now shown a strong correlation between student empathy and academic achievement....

The acquisition of content knowledge that has been deemed important by society, and is one of the key functions of education. Project Based Learning honors this by immersing students in the important content standards while providing needed pedagogical foundation. PBL also allows for content to be more then acquired, but also understood and applied. In a world that is seeing content multiply at an exponential rate, it is also important to help students become seekers of knowledge and lifetime self-learners. Along with those necessary 21st century skills, PBL provides the avenue to both build the content foundation while activating the natural passion and ability to learn.

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.
