What you might not know about the Declaration of Independence

What you might not know about the Declaration of Independence | Human Resources in public Education | Scoop.it
In June 1776, a little over a year after the start of the American Revolutionary War, the US Continental Congress huddled together in a hot room in Philadelphia to talk independence. Kenneth C. Davis dives into some of the lesser known facts about the process of writing the Declaration of Independence and questions one very controversial omission.

Here is a TED-Ed video that is applicable to this weekend (at least in the United States). There are some important facts that many of us do not know about the Declaration of Independence and this video presents them in an accessible format.
TED-Ed videos tend to be short (this one is just under 4 minutes) and also have additional resources as well as some thought provoking questions and  a discussion.

Take four minutes of your day and find out if you know the facts shared in this video.

"At its simplest, a flipped format can involve a teacher inviting students to view YouTube videos at home as a preview to the day's topic. At its most rigorous, a flipped curriculum involves teachers writing, producing, directing, editing, and posting their own original lessons -- complete with custom narrations and visualizations -- via third-party applications."

We are so far removed from inquiry based classrooms that curiosity is but a shadow. Students wait to be fed the learning, which isn't true learning if it is fed. True learning comes from asking our own questions and setting out on a quest to unravel the riddle we have created.

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Human Resources in public Education | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 3, 2014 10:11 PM

Google has just released a new game called Smarty Pins: Putting Trivia on the Map. It uses Google maps and allows you to pick a category and then pin the map with the correct answer (as in location). The closer you get to the correct location, the more "miles" you have. You can gain miles by answering quickly, but the clock ticks down.
What are the topics?

Featured topics on this day included March Madness and World Cup Trivia. The other topics to choose from are:

* Arts and Culture

* Science and Geography

* Sports and Games

* Entertainment

* History and Current Events

For students who like trivia this would be a good game. It might also be used as a classroom activity with groups playing when you need a break.

Vision for the Future: The Other 21st Century Skills

Vision for the Future:  The Other 21st Century Skills | Human Resources in public Education | Scoop.it

"Having a vision for the future is an natural extension of Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill I proposed.  A vision for the future enhances hope and optimism. To clarify, having a vision for the future is identifying and taking steps toward fulfilling one’s dream.  It goes beyond and is qualitatively different than identifying what one wants to be when one grows up or thinking about college.  It is about dreams."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 13, 2014 4:08 PM

As we look at education today ask yourself does the process support students ability to dream their vision? Do we promote a vision of the future as they move through the school system (and think K - 16)?

This post explores these issues and provides resources to help you explore them.

Find a link to Seth Godin's book Stop Stealing Dreams (What is School For?). Check out a video where students share their dream of the future. Consider the guiding questions provided to help your students think about the future (and see two answers from students in Grades 5-6). There are many resources to help you and your class think about this issue and how it relates to the 21st century.

If our students are visual learners are there resources we can use to help make learning more interesting? How about graphic novels? This post explores 'The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation stating:
The stunning paperback uses "Lincoln's words to tell the whole story of America's Civil War, 1776 to the present." The book is thrilling in its account of regional rifts and in its pictorial precision on each page.

An additional history book is discussed and there are links to additional resources on the value of using visuals in subjects areas.
