Students Email Their Parents About Missing Work. In my last blog post titled, “Stop Taking Grading Home,” I explained how I use the Station Rotation Model to provide students with real-time feedback as they work instead of taking grading home. I had one teacher ask me what I do when a student arrives at my teacher-led station and has not done the work required. That’s a great question, so I wanted to share my very simple strategy with my readers. If students have fallen behind on a formal essay, large scale assignment, or project, I require that they begin their session with me at the teacher-led real-time feedback station by writing their parents an email to explain why they have not completed the work they were assigned.

They must CC me on the email, use the formal business letter format, and propose a specific action plan to catch up on their work. This strategy is so simple but so effective! The most rewarding part of this strategy are the conversations that take place between parents and their children. Be The Change You Want to See By Shifting Traditional High School. My new classroom! Let the movement, exploration, collaboration & creation begin! #BackToSchool pic.twitter.com/XWhqzLM1X3— Catlin Tucker (@Catlin_Tucker) August 18, 2016 “I sat there and he just spoke to me, to everything that concerns me about education, and the way we're shuttling kids through classes and losing so many of them, and how we have to reimagine learning for kids of this generation.” Tucker said. Windsor works on a “core” model where one group of students share the same English, science and history teacher as a way to create smaller communities within the big comprehensive high school.

The two teachers share a mix of 60 freshmen and sophomores, teaching them English, science and a technology elective in an interdisciplinary way. Each student psychoanalyzed a character, using research to back up claims about how the character’s actions and words indicate they may have had a specific mental disorder. That attitude has allowed her to pursue some impressive projects. Paula Barr showcases blended learning best practices as iNACOL award recipient. My Journey with Blended - Home.

It’s time to flip the script on language education. And it starts with “flipping” your own class. What does that mean, exactly? Will you switch places with your students? Hand out worksheets upside down? Don’t worry—it’s more straightforward than it sounds. In other words, lectures and homework are “flipped.”

The concept has been around for years, and many foreign language educators consider it an important tool for boosting students’ proficiency levels. What Is a Flipped Classroom? In a flipped classroom, the traditional teaching environment is inverted (or “flipped”). Flipped classroom teaching arose out of pedagogical research from the late ’90s and early 2000s, and solidified as a methodology about a decade later.

Starting in 2007, high school chemistry teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams found success with the flipped classroom model for their own students, and went on to become gurus in the field. Why Does the Flipped Classroom Work for Foreign Language Education? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 8 Tips and Tricks to Redesign Your Classroom. Whether you’re looking to reorganize one corner or redesign an entire room, here are eight tips that may help you throughout the process. 1. Getting Students Involved Students are your primary users and should be at the center of such a remake process.

To begin building excitement, reach out to them early and invite them to a weekend session at school (or someone’s garage) so they can be involved from the beginning. Here are some specific ways to involve students: Visual inspiration: Ask parents, colleagues, or friends to donate a variety of appropriate magazines. Digitally, you can use Pinterest to create a board of inspiration. Student-defined pain points: Is there anything unsatisfying about the present setup?

10 x 10 x 10: With the students, define several questions that address your classroom remake project. Student helpers: Later, when you’re building out your redesign, ensure that the students play various roles in building the room. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Blended Learning: Resource Roundup. Beyond Technology: Blended Learning Conference Debates Equity, Cultural Inclusion.

For a conference named after “blended learning,” many attendees were surprised to learn that they did not agree on what the term meant. Dr. Dallas Dance, Superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools, was among the first to raise this during a session at the 6th Annual Blended Learning Conference, held last weekend in Rhode Island. “I was talking to a colleague who was using blended and personalized learning the same way,” says Dance. Michele Williams-George, an education consultant and researcher, claimed there were 25 words people inaccurately used interchangeably with the term, such as differentiated instruction and flipped classroom. What “blended learning” means has certainly evolved since the Innosight Institute (now called the Clayton Christensen Institute) introduced its definition in 2012, as “formal education program in which a student learns: at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace.”
