Carol Dweck: The Effect of Praise on Mindsets

Rebekah Keenan Mount's insight:

Ron Richhart's address at a recent conference led me to read Carol Dweck's Mindset: How you can fulfil your potential.  It's incredibly facinating and a chat about Dweck's book over coffee with a friend - led to a chat about the curse of perfectionsim (fixed mindset!) which led to discovering this great clip "Carol Dweck On Being Perfect" which was presented as a School Of Life vice or virtue sermon.

Routines

Routines | Teacher Education | Scoop.it
Routines are structures for helping students to think more deeply as you launch, engage, wrap-up or reflect on a unit of study.  One of the first routines everyone at Bemis tried at the very first...
Rebekah Keenan Mount's insight:

Of course, of course.  You know I am a fan.  I can't emphasise enough though that you need to embed these powerful pedaogogies into your practice.  Be aware of the sorts of thinking you want students to do, model and enact these routines.  Don't use them as activites.  Years ago, I went into my Year 10 class with a KWL and the students mocked, "Aw Miss, have you guys been doing some PD on KWLs - we've done 4 of them today already!! Be original Miss!!"

Rebekah Keenan Mount's insight:

Using twitter as a tool with my Preservice teachers is something that really intrigues me.  In the main, I think for many the mindset is that twitter is for personal use rather than being professionally useful.  I've been amazed at twitters potential to develop a Professional Learning Network (PLN) with passionate and innovative teachers.  For me, its also a reflective tool - and a tool to catelogue what I'm finding interesting and want to come back to.

The myth of teacher presence | TES New Teachers

Tom Bennett offers advice on teacher presence
Rebekah Keenan Mount's insight:

During a recent block placement, we've mentioned this issue of teacher presence to various TCs.  What does it mean?  I’m not quite sure.  I found an interesting article where the author also reflects on this idea, describing it as ‘nebulous’ and highly subjective.  There are ‘suggestions’ that might find helpful though. Read through and see what you think.  Add to the authors list the simple adage, “fake it to you make it.”

Visible Thinking Routines: Chalk Talk

Rebekah Keenan Mount's insight:

A blog where a group of collegues reflect on their implimentation of Ron Rittchart's visual thinking routines.  Having a supportinve forum for teachers to share their learning stories (their own learning, their students learning) is incredibly important.  Blogs, learning circles, or informal chats with like-minded collegues.  This blog was wonderful to read.  I wish I had taught at such a school.
