Why some kids can’t spell and why spelling tests won’t help | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
A couple of years ago, early one morning, I received an SMS advising “resadents to stay indoors because of a nearby insadent”. I was shocked by the spelling, as much as the message. Surely, I thought…

Through alternative formative assessment, teachers can check for student understanding without falling back on the tedious or intimidating pop quiz.


Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 6, 2014 11:04 AM

When I completed my Master's in Education, I used something similar to the 60 second paper and had students reflect on what was important to them in their learning. The most insightful times were when someone said the learning was of little value. That caused me to question what I was doing and rethink the way I taught. Sometimes it worked and other times it did not.

Usable Knowledge: Education at bat: Seven principles for educators

Usable Knowledge: Education at bat: Seven principles for educators | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
HGSE Professor David Perkins uses baseball as a metaphor to describe his concept of “learning by wholes” and his practical teaching principles in his new book, Making Learning Whole: How Seven Principles of Teaching Can Transform Education.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, September 6, 2014 11:56 AM
Avoid learning "pieces"...always help them put it together into a whole.  Avoid learning "about" something....DO IT instead.   Putting it all together

To implement these ideas in the classroom, David Perkins suggests that educators start with a junior version of the seven principles—picking and choosing what's most right for their own classrooms, while paying particular attention to “playing the whole game” and “making the game worth playing.” If educators use these principles, Perkins hopes, they will improve their students' understanding of the game, and their ability to play it successfully.

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.
