Lately the word "responsibility" has been used interchangeably with the word "accountability" when it comes to teachers, teaching, and learning.

Responsibility vs Accountability

Oh my! Why is it that teachers are held accountable for what learners are to learn? If teachers are accountable for what their learners are learning, are learners only learning for their teachers or a grade, not for themselves? Where does intrinsic motivation factor in the equation? Evaluations of teachers are often based on learner performance and data, so teachers feel not only accountable but responsible for what their learners learn.

To Teach Effective Writing, Model Effective Writing. I strive to teach my high school students the value of criticism, especially when it comes to improving their writing.

To Teach Effective Writing, Model Effective Writing

To do so, I model how criticism continues to help me become a better writer. Earlier this year, for example, I shared a draft of one of my education feature articles, which included detailed feedback from an editor at a prominent media company. I asked my classes for advice on how to address several edits, dealing with sources, transitions, terminology, and structure.

A few days later, I directed my budding writers to the much-improved final draft. This easy but worthwhile activity helped more of my students feel comfortable receiving criticism, and not view it as an affront. I want my students to feel secure in the knowledge that nobody is beyond criticism (even their teacher), and that the bigger challenge is developing the good sense to acknowledge and successfully respond to feedback. Along those lines, I also offer the suggestions below about teaching writing: Carol Dweck: The Two Mindsets. Carol Dweck studies human motivation.

Carol Dweck: The Two Mindsets

She spends her days diving into why people succeed (or don't) and what's within our control to foster success. As she describes it: “My work bridges developmental psychology, social psychology, and personality psychology, and examines the self-conceptions (or mindsets) people use to structure the self and guide their behavior. My research looks at the origins of these mindsets, their role in motivation and self-regulation, and their impact on achievement and interpersonal processes.” Classroom Champions. Brilliant toilet!
