How to Use Student-Generated Questions to Promote Deeper Thinking

But can you draw one from memory? In a famous decades-old study, adults were asked to draw a U.S. penny without any aids. Although they were confident that they knew what a penny looked like, their performance on the test was “remarkably poor.” And when shown pennies with slightly different characteristics, such as misplaced text or with Lincoln’s portrait facing the wrong direction, few were able to identify the inaccuracies. It’s a maddening quirk of human memory: We’re often convinced that we know something, but upon closer examination, it’s just an illusion. Understanding how people learn and reliably commit things to memory is what prompted psychology professor Mirjam Ebersbach and her colleagues at the University of Kassel to study how students prepare for an exam, and what strategies yielded the optimal improvements in student learning.

Dr. Ibram Kendi, founder of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University and author of the book How to Be an Antiracist, defines racism as the “marriage of racist policies and racist ideas that produces and normalizes racial inequities.”

Antiracism is the opposite—measures that eliminate racial inequity on the basis that racist policies are the cause of racial inequities. Six tips for running online courses. Online teachers must also be moderators.

4 Key Aspects of Teaching a K–12 Online Class

Having taught in the virtual space throughout my education career, I’ve found, like others, that doing so requires a combination of characteristics: expertise in lesson planning and assessment, adaptability in what learning can look like in a virtual space, and a belief in students’ ability to rise to a challenge with support. Ultimately, we want students to take ownership of and lead their learning, and that’s even more necessary in a virtual space. Downloadable Materials — The Learning Scientists.

The surprising truth about what motivates us

It's the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It's the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be. Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward. How to Choose a Co-Teaching Model. 6 Models of Co-Teaching: Pros and Cons One Teaching, One Observing: As a supervisor, I’ve seen this model implemented both with purpose and without.

How to Choose a Co-Teaching Model

It takes time to develop a working relationship with another teacher. When the relationship isn’t working, this model appears more often, and often without purpose. When one teacher is directly instructing the students, the other should be observing. The observing teacher is collecting data, which can be useful in determining what instruction takes place next, which students need additional help, and what co-teaching model may be used next to address any identified needs.

Pros: less time collaborating, less interruption, more focused and purposeful data collection. Peer Coaching: Tapping Into the Expertise of Fellow Teachers. In my travels to schools around the world, I have yet to encounter educators who wouldn’t benefit from peer coaching as an approach to professional learning.

Peer Coaching: Tapping Into the Expertise of Fellow Teachers

As in any field, professional learning should support teachers in improving their practice—there’s no point investing resources in professional learning if it’s not going to make a difference in what happens in classrooms for students. Professional learning needs to focus on the right work that’s going to impact teacher practice and student learning. Unfortunately, professional learning hasn’t always been effective or focused on teachers’ real problems of practice. Traditional models can be expensive and often disrupt student learning by pulling teachers away from class, and teachers often find them uninspiring when implemented from the top down.

How to Increase Participation By Asking Better Questions. What do you do when your question is met with blank stares? In “When You Get Nothing But Crickets,” Jennifer Gonzalez of Cult of Pedagogy shares a few ways to avoid those long, awkward silences after you pose a question. First, determine why you are not getting any responses. Gonzalez says it boils down to one issue: “Getting the silent treatment from a group you’re speaking to happens most of the time for one basic reason: People don’t want to look stupid.” Helping Students Develop Executive Function Skills. Executive function is an umbrella term in neuroscience to describe the neurological processes involving mental control and self-regulation. Executive functions control and regulate cognitive and social behaviors like controlling impulses, paying attention, remembering information, planning and organizing time and materials, and responding appropriately to social situations and stressful situations. Experts believe executive function is regulated by the frontal lobe of the brain—the prefrontal cortex.

Because humans are born with brains that are not fully developed, children are not born with these skills, but they have the potential to develop them. Three Ways To End The School Year Strong. Given this research, it’s particularly important for us teachers to be strategic about how we end the school year with our students – it can have an outsized influence on not only how they feel about our class, but also about how they approach school in the future, too.

Ensuring That Instruction Is Inclusive for Diverse Learners With Universal Design for Learning.

Humans have a tendency to fall into patterns of behavior. For teachers, that means that if we’re not careful, we begin to teach things the same way every year. This is comfortable for us, but it can result in a rigid curriculum that may not work for all students—and traditional classrooms are curriculum-centered already, not easily adapted to the differing needs of individual students. Instead, students are required to adapt to the curriculum. As a special education teacher, part of my job was helping students who had a diagnosed learning disability access the general education curriculum, so I frequently found myself co-teaching with a math or English teacher. When students with learning differences are placed in the general education classroom, they often receive accommodations and services. Teachers in this situation may become frustrated because trying to accommodate each child individually creates a lot of stress and often an unmanageable workload. 1.

Creating a Culture of Frequent Reflection to Improve Student Learning. We know that reflection increases student learning. It supports growth mindset and encourages students to improve and learn from their mistakes. We may engage our students in reflection in our classrooms, but it’s not often habitual—I know I’ve been guilty of treating reflection as an event rather than as something we do all the time. With all the challenges of teaching content and assessing learning outcomes, we can fall into the trap of skipping the reflection. Allowing Test Retakes—Without Getting Gamed.
