Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | The Reading Library | 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.

Fitting it All In: "Finding Time" for Close Readings | Burkins & Yaris

Fitting it All In: "Finding Time" for Close Readings | Burkins & Yaris | The Reading Library | Scoop.it
Today's post revisits close reading and considers it in the context of a literacy block. We argue that you don't have to make time for close reading, but can integrate it into existing structures.

Fleur Diamond's insight:

One of my bugbears in many discussions of technology in the classroom is a lack of attention to close reading. This article discusses this indispensible core skill.

For two educators who tend to eschew T. Shanahan's views on all things CCSS, this blog post is strikingly similar to what he's been preaching!
