A Principal's Reflections: Critical Literacy Across the Curriculum

A Principal's Reflections: Critical Literacy Across the Curriculum | The School Library 2.0 | Scoop.it

"How can an English teacher help to develop critical literacy across the curriculum? What follows is a guest post from NMHS teachers who have been collaborating with English teacher Joanna Westbrook to create authentic literacy tasks in each of their disciplines. You will hear from a science teacher, a social studies teacher, and an art teacher as each provides her take on how the Common Core and 21st Century learning goals affect what goes on in the classroom.

Not at the high-end of conceptual use of badges but probably a very pragmatic dimension for anyone trying to deploy badges in an unsupported context.

Let the Librarians Lead

Let the Librarians Lead | The School Library 2.0 | Scoop.it
When I was in the classroom, I yearned to have a colleague who knew my curriculum and could counsel me in literacy practices and effective and efficient technology integration. A peer who understood adolescent development and would problem solve by my side. One who could talk through the intricacies and complications of guiding students through analytical research. A collaborator and innovator to help push me deeper into my own practice. I was looking for somebody who had superpowers, and she was nowhere to be found.

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic]

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic] | The School Library 2.0 | Scoop.it

You already know that well-researched, high-quality content is the backbone of a killer blog post. But don’t underestimate the importance of a strong visual component when you’re composing your latest and greatest update for your audience

The human brain processes images in as little as 13 milliseconds—less than the blink of an eye.

A post with an image is far more enticing to the bounce-happy readers of the Internet than one without, and is more likely to be shared on social media as well.

I instantly thought about crafting a poster to share with all of you here. I went through my archive and sifted through several posts I published in the past and finally after a lot of deliberation I settled on the skills outlined in the visual below.

I invite you to have a look and probably print off and use it in your classroom with your students. The visual is free for anyone to use and download provided that you do not charge people for it and you credit back Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Enjoy

great visual reference

Becky Vickers's curator insight, February 12, 2014 9:58 PM

I love this visual representation of many of the skills and dispositions we seek to teach students. This poster illustrates the important point that we don't really know the world our students will be entering when they graduate, so teaching them these skills of resilience, critical literacy, and technological thinking is the way we can best prepare them for the uncertain future. 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 29, 2016 11:28 PM

Excellent poster that touches each elements of 21 century teaching and learning skills development.
