Sentence stems will help you engage students in conversations that stimulate higher order thinking. 

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, March 12, 2014 3:34 PM

At each stage of the inquiry process these stem questions will apply. Add in the action verbs from Blooms Taxonomy and you will definitely create a dynamic learning environment. 

Jan Watts's curator insight, March 16, 2014 7:48 PM

Really useful tools for discussion - and not just in classrooms? Meetings, Board rooms, Parliament.....you name it!

Mel Riddile's curator insight, December 6, 2013 1:22 PM
Principal leadership matters--perhaps now more than ever before. As much as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are changing instructional practice in the classroom, we must acknowledge that student learning under CCSS requires a schoolwide transformation that transcends individual classrooms and requires the dedicated, continual attention of the principal. Consider how these five essential schoolwide conditions for CCSS will fundamentally shift the way principals go about leading schools.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 28, 2013 11:30 AM

"UDL Implementation: A Tale of Four Districts is the story of four school districts taking the journey into the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) implementation process. Baltimore County Public Schools in Maryland, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation in Indiana, Cecil County Public Schools in Maryland and Chelmsford Public Schools in Massachusetts participated in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project to explore and pilot processes and tools developed to support UDL Implementation within their own unique districts. The story is told primarily through the voices of the dedicated educator leaders from these districts and the UDL facilitators who supported them. During the one-year grant, the districts worked with CAST, Inc. to develop and implement an effective and sustainable district plan to support the integration of Universal Design for Learning."

Why educating the educators is complex

Why educating the educators is complex | UDL | Scoop.it
Teaching is both craft and profession -- and more.

 

Thus teaching is a deeply social and emotional activity. You have to know your students and be able to read them quickly, and from that reading make decisions to slow down or speed up, stay with a point or return to it later, connect one student’s comment to another’s.

 

Simultaneously, you are assessing on the fly Susie’s silence, Pedro’s slump, Janelle’s uncharacteristic aggressiveness. Students are, to varying degrees, also learning from each other, learning all kinds of things, from how to carry oneself to how to multiply mixed numbers.

 

How teachers draw on this dynamic interaction varies depending on their personal style, the way they organize their rooms, and so on—but it is an ever-present part of the work they do.

Почему обучение педагогов является сложным?

DPG plc's curator insight, December 10, 2013 7:00 AM

In our expereince those who educate others and facilitate learning are great at using different tools however they must be taken on a journey that creates both confidence in using the tools and answers the WIIFM. The demands and needs of our students are changing and we need to ensure we keep up with these demands and in fact be early adopters and not laggards when it comes to change.
