The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic]

The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic] | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking skills truly matter in learning. Why? Because they are life skills we use every day of our lives. Everything from our work to our recreational pursuits, and all that’s in between, employs these unique and valuable abilities. Consciously developing them takes thought-provoking discussion and equally thought-provoking questions to get it going. Begin right here with the Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet.


It’s a simple infographic offering questions that work to develop critical thinking on any given topic. Whenever your students discover or talk about new information, encourage them to use these questions for sparking debate and the sharing of opinions and insights among each other. Together they can work at building critical thinking skills in a collaborative and supportive atmosphere."

Critical thinking is an essential skill, and the journalistic question are always a great way (and subject) on which to practice critical thinking. I really appreciate how detailed this outline is. I would love to make a poster of it. It is exactly the sort of thing I would love to have up in the classroom, as a guide for me as well as my students.

The Best Self-Assessment Questions for Encouraging a Growth Mindset

The Best Self-Assessment Questions for Encouraging a Growth Mindset | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
There is no topic in education that is more furiously debated than assessment. Of course, self-assessment tends to raise even more alarm bells. The notion of students assessing themselves is difficult for many educators to get around, but they’re warming to the idea. If our students learn to ask the right self-assessment questions and keep themselves accountable, the results in learning improvement can be amazing.

20 Simple Assessment Strategies You Can Use Every Day | #Understanding #LEARNing2LEARN #FAQ'S | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
The ultimate goal of teaching is understanding. But sometimes it’s easier to talk than to teach, as we all know, especially when we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. We hope students will understand, if not now then before test time, and we keep our fingers crossed that their results will indicate we’ve done our job. The problem is, we often rely on these tests to measure understanding and then we move on. There isn’t always time to address weaknesses and misunderstandings after the tests have been graded, and by that time it’s too late for students to be interested.

Below are 22 simple assessment strategies and tips to help you become more frequent in your teaching, planning, and curriculum design.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 15, 2017 11:03 PM
This is a reminder to both students and teachers (we are all learners) that a can-do attitude can help us to overcome barriers and obstacles to growth. Often we see a single route to success. When that pathway is blocked, we may give up. But a positive attitude supports multiple pathways and once we persevere we find them. It is about growth, not about benchmarks - any growth, small or large is positive.

Technically a Librarian: Make Writing

Technically a Librarian: Make Writing | Why School's Need Teacher Librarians | Scoop.it
While at one of our ELA planning meetings, we were discussing the lack of enthusiasm kids have for writer's workshop. What was once a time for kids to express themselves creatively, was now a time that kids dreaded. How sad? I loved Writer's Workshop as a kid. We had to fix this. They had tried creative prompts, incorporating movies and music, but they were still "bleh".

As we were brainstorming, an 8th grade English teacher brought up the book "Make Writing" by Angela Stockman. Oddly enough, I had just finished reading my advanced readers copy since I'm a member of the Hack Learning VIP program. All of a sudden we both were sitting at the edge of our seats ready to do it!
