How to Prepare Social Studies Students to Think Critically in the Modern World “The consequence of this approach, coupled with a preference by many schools for multiple-choice assessments, turns out students who are disillusioned with social studies—and creates an environment where “accumulating knowledge and memorizing information is emphasized because that’s what counts on standardized tests,” writes Franz. In his book Why Learn History (When It’s Already on Your Phone), author Sam Wineburg, a professor at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education, examines how historians approach resources and argues that this is how teachers should be rigorously vetting—and teaching students to vet—social studies materials for the classroom. Wineburg first describes how an AP US History student analyzes a New York Times article from 1892 about the creation of Discovery Day, later renamed Columbus Day. The student criticizes the article for celebrating Columbus as a noble hero when, in fact, he “captured and tortured Indians.”

Resources: Collective Impact The Alliance has operated on the foundational premise that no one individual or group acting in isolation can solve the complex systemic problems in public education. In the decade since it began, the Alliance has been progressing in an intentional arc from partnerships, to collaborations, to networks of influence, towards where we are now: creating a vision and structure for collective impact.

Pilgrims English Language Courses - 2021 University of Limerick Update Dear Teachers, As we write, Ireland has still a tight quarantine protocol in force and it is unclear when this is lifted. Under such circumstances, it would be very difficult for the University of Limerick to operate and host us on their campus, so regrettably, we are having to cancel our summer programme. 46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences). The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world. So if you want to try to make infographics–or better yet have students make them–where do you start?

It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it’s a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful. It’s turning us into individuals who devote our lives to achieving a rank.

How can you change from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset? Step1. Learn to hear your fixed mindset “voice.” As you approach a challenge, that voice might say to you “Are you sure you can do it? Maybe you don’t have the talent.” “What if you fail—you’ll be a failure” “People will laugh at you for thinking you had talent.” “If you don’t try, you can protect yourself and keep your dignity.” June 2021 - Home Editorial Pilgrims News Interview with Chaz Pugliese, Director of Education at Pilgrims Various Articles - Teaching English in COVID times Various Articles - Drama in action No Dentist Left Behind I got this email today at school, thought I'd share.
