10 Apps for Learners Who Struggle with Reading and Writing | Free Resources from the Net for EVERY Learner | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it

Despite the growing use of multimedia in classrooms, schools remain primarily text oriented. This is a major problem for significant numbers of learners who struggle with text. No matter how capable they may be in other respects, these students are not “academically” oriented in the ways that tend to matter most in the classroom.

TY! @APHumanGeog for What Makes a Great Teacher?

TY! @APHumanGeog  for What Makes a Great Teacher? | Students with dyslexia & ADHD in independent and public schools | Scoop.it
For years, the secrets to great teaching have seemed more like alchemy than science, a mix of motivational mumbo jumbo and misty-eyed tales of inspiration and dedication.

 

We intuitively know this, and the data backs it up--having a good teacher matters.  What common traits were identified among superb teachers?  1) They set big goals for their students, 2) continually reworking how they teach, 3) recruit students and parents into the process, 4) focused on student outcomes (not teacher actions), 5) planned meticulously and 6) relentlessly refused to surrender to typical problems (socioeconomic, budgetary, bureaucratic, etc.).
