Want to Succeed? Let Yourself Fail

"We’ve all heard the catch phrases attributed to people we envy for being the most successful:  “failure is not an option”;  “Never settle for anything less than perfect”.  We tend to think of our heroes as magically ascending the ladder of success without any setbacks along the way, but is this really true?  According to what I’ve read this week, no."

UDL-Multiple Modes of Engagement

Universal design principles address how individuals are engaged in learning by encouraging educators design lessons that are active and engaging. his can be accomplished instructionally by engaging learners by using flexible modes of representation as well as through authentic and meaningful problem and project-based learning experiences.

Authentic Learning: experiences that best enable learners to be engaged with their learning by making learning meaningful to the life of the student and connected to real life events

Common Core's Focus on 'Close Reading': Changes how teachers teach

Common Core's Focus on 'Close Reading': Changes how teachers teach | Reading with Vanderpool | Scoop.it

by Catherine Gewertz

February 8, 2012

 

*Excerpts are filtered for the benefit of busy school leaders.

 

Drawn together by the Aspen Institute, some chief academic officers hash out how to deliver a profound shift in reading instruction.

 

Essential Question

 

What would happen if English/language arts teachers revolutionized their instruction to focus intently—and exclusively—on the texts students are reading?

 

Close Reading: A Key Shift

 

Close reading represents a key shift in the Common Core State Standards:

Students are expected to engage in "close reading" of complex literary and informational texts.

In contrast to common practice, in which teachers explain reading passages and supply background information before students read, "close reading" confines initial study to the text itself. Students make sense of it by probing its words and structure for information and evidence. Through questions and class exercises, teachers guide students back through the reading in a hunt for answers and deeper understanding.

 

Changes H0w Teachers Teach


Close reading requires profound shifts:

in how teachers teach how districts choose texts how they test what students know how they evaluate teachers.

 

Teachers Lack the Capacity

 

"I'm really worried that we haven't prepared our teachers for this," one chief academic officer said. "The academic and cognitive demand [on teachers] is quite high."


One of the chief academic officers said that such a process represents a more significant change for teachers than they might realize.

 

Significant Professional Development


Moving teachers toward this way of working will require "some significant professional development:"

teachers must learn to refrain from providing quick answers figure out instead how to formulate new kinds of questions that take them and their students back to the text repeatedly in their search for understanding.

 

Gradual Release


Close reading "moves students toward independence:"

by developing their abilities to build vocabulary access a text's structure; grasp a text's meaning and build arguments from it based on evidence in the text itself eventually build the confidence to grapple with tough reading on their own.


Questions Left Unanswered

 

How, for instance, would they build skill among their educators to provide sufficient supports for struggling readers, special education students, and English-learners to tackle text this way? How would teachers respond to a "sea change" that reframes their role from provider of information to facilitator of inquiry? And where would they get deep, focused lessons for such instruction?

What Mindsets Drive Teacher Effectiveness?

What Mindsets Drive Teacher Effectiveness? | Reading with Vanderpool | Scoop.it

"This view of high-quality teaching requires evaluators to look beyond classroom performance to see the manifestations of effort focused around these five qualities. Like gravitational or electromagnetic fields, these states of mind cannot be observed directly; they are known from their effects. The ball falls from our hand; we label gravity as a cause. Likewise, we label invisible causes in classrooms. We celebrate teacher efficacy when the teacher inspires her students to grow and learn as a result of their hard work together. The invisible force is a growth mind-set. We contrast this with another less effective teacher who complains that the students are not well prepared because the teacher the year before did not prepare them. Although she may not say it directly to the students, it is highly likely the students will sense the frustration. This fixed mind-set blames external forces and limits the teacher's efficacy and ability to interact in proactive ways with children. (Dweck, 2006)."

nice set of links about Carol Dweck's Mindset Theory.  Every parent needs to know what Carol Dweck discovered in her research.  

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:09 AM

So one who wants to make a change must have a positive outlook on new situations or task that they are not used to?

 

This article is about how one can gain or become a part of the group that is a growth mind set. You gain success or become a better person by following these changes.

Sharonda Holmes's curator insight, April 23, 2017 6:23 PM

Creating poetry stations by using podcasts and blogs allows students to engage with each other as well as the teacher. This is a great way to incorporate technology in your classroom. This connects to Common Core Standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.6.6: Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single sitting.

Knowing the research behind text complexity is critical to understanding the call for more complexity.

The CCSS crafters examined college freshman textbooks and career manuals.These texts typically measure at a Lexile score of 1450.This Lexile measure was used as a benchmark for college and career readiness (CCR).Grade level Lexiles were then scaffolded in reverse, defining grade level Lexile expectations as stated in the Common Core Appendix A.
