Teaching and Professional Development
Many of today’s classrooms are designed and practiced as teaching classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on and driven by the teacher. Teaching classrooms however, do not match the needs and expectations for 21st Century learning. To be successful in the 21st Century students need to be engaged in learning classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on student outcomes and classroom practices that strengthen and deepen not only students’ content knowledge but their overall ability to think deeply, communicate, analyze, problem solve, and take responsibility for their learning. - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com

Core of the Matter: Using the Common Core Speaking and Listening Standards to Take the Classroom Experience to a Broader, More Authentic Audience

Core of the Matter: Using the Common Core Speaking and Listening Standards to Take the Classroom Experience to a Broader, More Authentic Audience | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it

I’m always searching for ways to make my classroom more meaningful for my students, particularly those from low-income families and those of color. I’ve seen the need to go beyond simply transmitting information to my students. My students must learn how to learn. In a rapidly changing, technology-fueled world, it is not enough for me to play the role of the traditional teacher, imparting my knowledge.

If the teacher is unable or unwilling to assume this role, one or more students will fill the vacuum and lead the class in a direction that might not be best for learning. This is why leadership is the foundation of good classroom management and why teachers need to embrace their natural roles as leaders.
