"...in practice, curriculum maps are almost always not the “living, breathing” documents experts like Heidi Jacobs Hayes promote. They are instead very dead things—lifeless prisons of content to be covered, and boxes to be highlighted...For a curriculum map—or any planned learning experiences—to be vital—and vitally useful—they must be adaptive and circular rather than rigid and linear. ...they must encourage students to continue their pursuit of understanding and self-knowledge."

Interesting food for thought...worth reading ;)

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 23, 2013 9:19 PM

What can you do to help extend the learning process, to keep it going in your classroom? This post provides "six strategies to help keep the learning going in your classroom." Below are two.

* At the end of an activity, project, lesson, or unit ask simple questions: So? So what? What now? What have you learned? Why is that important? What makes sense to do next in light of this progression?

* Promote self-directed learning using frameworks that teach students to access, evaluate, and use information in real-time, rather than simply “doing assignments.”

Click through to the post to read four more strategies.

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Teach-nology - ideas and techie tools for teachers | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.
