Loved this article when it was originally published.  It's a shame that there's so much misinformation out there.

50 Great Books For Teachers - Edudemic | The Early Education Classroom | Scoop.it
If you’re a teacher, you probably don’t have oodles of free time on your hands (unless you’ve thrown lesson planning and grading your students’ work out the window!), but when you do, a good book recommendation is almost always welcome (trumped only by a good wine/beer/food recommendation!). I always enjoy a good ‘beach read’ when …

Personal Journey to Personalize Learning in Kindergarten | Barbara Bray

Personal Journey to Personalize Learning in Kindergarten | Barbara Bray | The Early Education Classroom | Scoop.it

Lisa Welch and Wanda Richardson are Kindergarten Teachers in Wisconsin who are personalizing learning for their students. They share their story in how they they needed to rethink personalize learning for their students.  Here are they questions they reflected on as they created new learning paths for their students.

 

> "How can you personalize learning for students who are not yet able to read?

> How can you help student’s become independent learners at this young age?

> How can the 4 c’s of 21st Century Learning make their way into everything we do?

> How can we impart that core knowledge that is vital at this age?

 

We don’t have all the answers by any means, but we are certainly finding that we are on an exciting path at this time! Currently, every child in our classroom has a PERSONALIZED Learning Plan. These plans are created according to the child’s interests in learning styles as well as in subject areas. For example, one child is studying the subway and is interested in creating on the computer, math and music/dancing."

 

Thank you Lisa and Wanda for sharing this story!

Leading Change in Education - Common Sense School Leadership

Leading Change in Education - Common Sense School Leadership | The Early Education Classroom | Scoop.it

The use of business strategies when training future educational leaders can be problematic.  We should be cautious when extending the values of business to the field of education.  Not all business practices translate well to teaching and school leadership.  Schools exist to serve children and families.  We should never look at students in the proprietary way that businesses do their products.
