The 27 Characteristics of A 21st Century Teacher "21st Century Educator" is probably the most popular buzzword in today's education. There is a growing and heated debate whether or not to label educators as 21st century and each camp has its own concept and arguments, however, for me personally I see teaching in 21st century as having undergone a paradigmatic shift. This is basically due to the emerging of the " social web" and the huge embrace of technology and particularly the mobile gadgetry in our classrooms. It would be unfair to ignore these huge transformations and their impact on education. Having said that, we are sharing with you today this great infographic from Mia featuring the 27 ways to be 21st century teacher. courtesy of :

New Bloom's Taxonomy Poster for Teachers August 29, 2014 Bloom's taxonomy is one of the most popular learning taxonomies ever. Since its release in the last half of the 20th century, it has been widely adopted within the education sector and was used extensively to design and create learning materials and curriculum content. Bloom's taxonomy maps out learning skills along a thinking continuum that starts with lower order thinking skills in one end (e.g. remembering and understanding) and moves up in difficulty to the other end that embraces higher order thinking skills (e.g. evaluating and creating). However, Bloom's taxonomy has been repeatedly modified to suit the requirements of the era in which it is used . You can access the original downloadable visual from this link.

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - 12 Rules Of Great Teaching by Terry Heick Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. 1. This is how great things are built. 2. Learning models, for example, are the new teaching strategy. Traditionally, teachers focus on “strategies” to “teach.” But the modern approach should have as much to do with what students access, when, how, and why as it does with “what students do in the lesson.” 3. Your students, first and foremost. 4. If you can’t make them curious, teach something else. Taskmasters seek compliance. 5. Teaching is a craft. Not only does this keep things fresh for students, but it keeps you sharp and relevant as an educator as this big world keeps on turning. 6. Know that it’s okay to think technology-first. 7. Technology. 8. When explaining, less is more. 9. Know the difference between confusing and complex. Between standards and curriculum. 10. 11. Be unpredictable. 12. Bonus

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers Part of rethinking learning means rethinking the bits and pieces of the learning process–teaching strategies, writing pieces, etc. Which is what makes the following chart from Kathleen Cushman’s Fires in the Mind compelling. Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments. In fact, most of them are alternatives to homework altogether, including group brainstorming, modeling/think-alouds, or even the iconic pop-quiz. Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Failing Forward: 21 Ideas To Use It In Your Classroom Failing Forward: 21 Ideas To Help Students Keep Their Momentum by Terry Heick “Failing Forward” is a relatively recent entry into our cultural lexicon–at least as far has headlines go anyway–that has utility for students and teachers. Popularized from the book of the same name, the idea behind failing forward is to see failing as a part of success rather than its opposite. Provided we keep moving and pushing and trying and reflecting, failure should, assuming we’re thinking clearly, lead to progress, So rather than failing and falling back, we fail forward. Tidy little metaphor. So what might this look like in your classroom? Failing Forward In The Classroom: 21 Ideas To Help Students Keep Their Momentum 1. How does this promote failing forward? Say: “Your design work on the app blueprint is coming along nicely. 2. How does this promote failing forward? Say: “Your first two drafts didn’t work so well, huh? 3. How does this promote failing forward? 4. How does this promote failing forward?

The tool includes a set of graphic organizers designed to assist teachers and students in prewriting and postreading activities, focusing on the key elements of character, setting, conflict, and resolution development (shown at left).

Free Graphic Organizers for Teaching Literature and Reading Introduction As you probably already know, free graphic organizers are readily available on the Internet. However, access to quality organizers often requires either a monthly or an annual fee. Here you will find, what I think, are quality organizers WITHOUT monthly or annual fees. I dug into my own archives that I've accumulated over my 33 year career in search of organizers that focus on reading. With that in mind, I searched rather thoroughly for graphic organizer ideas wherever I could find them. The result is what you will see on this page--a collection of 50 graphic organizers designed specifically for teaching literature and reading. And, if you like these, I’ve got a strong feeling that you’ll also like 50 More READERizers—the newer sibling of this collection. Quick Links for THIS Page You may use the following quick links to go directly to what interests you on this page.

ALL ABOUT ME WRITING PROMPTS These Writing Prompts are perfect anytime to make kids feel special and to sharpen up those writing skills. * The prompts are written with a range of writing skills in mind from those pre-writers who need to dictate to the story-tellers who need extra pages. I think it's important for print to be meaningful. That's why even a preschooler looks at a list for a camping trip and "reads" it back to anyone who will listen. Included in this unit are 16 writing prompts with really cute photographs or clip art. * It's Your Birthday. I've also included a full page of lined paper for those prolific writers and an Illustration page so kids can draw along with their writing. *** Parents will love these prompts -- really nice keepsake!! If you’ve enjoyed this unit I would really appreciate it if you would rate me and leave a comment. Thank you so much. Edna Wallace: Lickety Split Lessons and Stuff You can reach me at: PINTEREST:
