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

I'd also council administrators who felt that the next flashy thing they saw walk through their door, their school had to have. And often I would evaluate our programs and purchases to ensure we were headed on the desired course or if we needed to make a U-turn.

Becoming A Better Teacher By Becoming A Better Leader

Becoming A Better Teacher By Becoming A Better Leader | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it

Anyone who has spent time with children knows that a classroom needs a leader. 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.

There is often a great deal of emphasis on establishing a vision when beginning the change process and rightfully so. Great leaders understand the importance of a shared vision and the need to articulate lofty goals and resulting outcomes.

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’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.
