The Purpose of a Central Idea

The Purpose of a Central Idea | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
After recent training courses with Kath Murdoch and Lynn Erickson, I have thought deeper about the purpose of Central Ideas. For years I have heard many PYP teachers arguing about what makes a good Central Idea or that Central Ideas are often too broad or inaccessible for students (especially from lower primary teachers). I have…

George Couros provided insight on the 8 things we need to look for in today's classrooms. Sylvia Duckworth recently created this graphic that represents George's blog post from Jan. 2013. These 8 things are elements that you would discover in a personalized learning environment where the learners become self-directed and self-motivated. Thank you George for providing a narrative about these 8 things to share with the education world.

Why Whole-School Literacy Fails!

Why Whole-School Literacy Fails! | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
There is no more important act in education than helping children to learn to read. I am sure we can agree that developing our students as confident readers, writers and speakers is the core business of every teacher, regardless of age, phase or subject specialism. Too often though we take this essential work, package it up with the label of 'literacy',' then we expect a singular school leader to work miracles. The role of the 'Literacy Coordinator' is a modern-day Sisyphus. Like an annual rite, we set literacy targets, compose complex plans, rattle out audits and stack up data in spreadsheets, expecting the Coordinator to push the whole-school literacy boulder up the  mountain. The matter of 'literacy' really is a boulder of gargantuan proportions, beyond the will and wit of any individual leader. Is it time to admit that we have as many failures than we have successes when it comes to whole-school literacy? In so doing, we may offer hope to the put upon Literacy Coordinator, crushed

I think I have pizza on my mind since this is the second post in as many days related to pizza.  This is a clever way to introduce oneself to a class or to have a partners introduce each other.  I am thinking it wouldn't have to be pizza, but one's favorite dish where certain ingredients represent something about one's life.

Film English is a comprehensive and valuable resource that I have used in my EFL classes several times. The videos, while not long, are thought-provoking, and the resources provided may easily be adapted to different ability levels, as well as to complete lessons.
