How High School Teachers Can Use Their Own Writing as Model Texts Modeling is a popular show-and-tell teaching strategy used by teachers across subjects and grade levels. Although it’s sometimes perceived as easy, teachers must be strategic and consider student engagement, individual learning needs, and appropriate scaffolds. Recently, I’ve used my academic blog as a model for a writing project in one of my college courses. My goal was to reinforce that writing matters to me as a teacher and as an individual, and it was important to me to use non-classroom examples to demonstrate the writing strategies I was teaching.
colonizing virtual reality Chris Chesher Introduction New technologies do not appear from nowhere as a mystical spark of inspiration from the mind of one individual. Nor are they inevitably accepted for their self-evident benefits. A technology emerges through a process involving broader cultural, linguistic, institutional and technological contexts. One clear illustration of this process can be drawn with the appearance of "virtual reality" in 1989, and the subsequent popularization of the idea through the media.

With many students learning from home this school year, it’s a strategy that can help get kids back into a “critical thinking zone.” By connecting a series of ideas around a theme—a process where the end result often looks entirely different for each student or group—hexagonal thinking is designed to get kids thinking critically, making novel connections, debating, and providing evidence to support their reasoning.
