Yet for the lowest-achieving students, both experience and research tell us they are unlikely to become average readers without intensive teaching. For over 25 years, Reading Recovery has worked with first graders having difficulty in learning to read and write.

What is the Problem With Professional Development?

What is the Problem With Professional Development? | Teaching to impact, prepare and ignite the future. | Scoop.it

"What is the problem with professional development? The biggest problem is the way we frame it with the language that we use, and the thoughtless interpretation and implementation that we apply. What if we shifted the concept from professional development to professional growth, from what is expected of us by others to a promise we make to ourselves?"

How Do We Teach Critical Thinking in a Connected World? | Powerful Learning Practice

How Do We Teach Critical Thinking in a Connected World? | Powerful Learning Practice | Teaching to impact, prepare and ignite the future. | Scoop.it

"As a child, I grew up in a world that was dominated by left-brained thinking. Both my parents were in professions that required in-depth analytical thinking. The “rule” in my house was: “If you break something, try to fix it. Only THEN come ask Dad for help.”
Looking back now, I realize something I never understood then — what he had instilled was an ability to think critically. Along with creativity, collaboration, and communication, critical thinking is one of the four components of learning in the 21st century. Unlike the other three, critical thinking is often difficult to reduce to bite-size pieces of understanding and challenging to teach to others."

Read on for an example of teaching critical thinking with a first grade class as well as a look at 3 underlying components to critical thinking.

Valeria Ríos Bedoya's curator insight, August 26, 2017 6:33 PM
Teaching to teach critically is a big challenge for us, as teachers, nowadays due to the important impact technology has had in our daily lives; therefore, the topic of this article is very relevant since we need to change the way we teach. We need to adapt our curriculums in order to stop teaching a lot of content that our students can easily find on line, and start teaching how to analyze, interpret and approach appropriately all the information that our students receive through the constant use of technological devices.
