INA Assessments – Island Numeracy Network “What might happen if students were … at the heart of the assessment process, using goals and results to fuel their own learning? What if they were more assessment capable?” (Absolum et al., 2009) Expressions With Arrays – Mathcurious Last week we started with arrays and multiplication and I feel that there is more to be said and done regarding this topic. One of my favorite activities to do in class is to give students task cards with different arrays and ask them to write equations/expressions for them. In a previous post, we shared some simple array task-cards where the students had to write the expressions and practice the properties of multiplication. Today I would like to share with you some more array task-cards, this time with the arrays placed in different shapes and arrangements like the ones below.

Yo-Yo Ma's new Bach video is the most beautiful thing we've ever seen 9 June 2020, 13:53 | Updated: 9 June 2020, 13:56 In this gorgeous video, the famous cellist is seen on top of a city building playing the Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 – but the video has a powerful message Yo-Yo Ma’s video opens with the following message: “Culture – the way we express ourselves and understand each other – can bind us together as one world”. The camera pans to show the cellist playing in front of a dramatic cityscape. But soon, we’re taken to very different scenes – from a ballet studio, to an ice rink, from a potter's studio to a tailor's workshop. The video was put together from clips that were sent to Yo-Yo Ma’s team in response to the question “Show the world how you express yourself and what brings your community together”.

Greater Good In Education Evidence That It Works Learning about the brain and how it impacts our thoughts, emotions, and actions helps to develop students’ self-awareness, or the ability to be aware of their inner lives. Why Does It Matter? As students grow in self-awareness, they cultivate their ability to know how and when to use self-management skills such as navigating emotions in a healthy way (i.e., emotion regulation), persistence, asking for help, setting goals, empathy, and other crucial skills for success. Indeed, studies have found that teaching students to effectively manage their thinking, attention, and behavior can lead to better grades, higher test scores, and stronger relationships.

How to Develop Culturally Responsive Teaching for Distance Learning - MindShift Hammond distinguishes the differences between culturally responsive education, multicultural education and social justice education. Each is important, but without a focus on building students’ brain power, they will experience learning loss. When it comes to distance learning, applying culturally responsive teaching requires “remixing” education by borrowing from the best practices in how kids learn (Montessori, project-based learning, etc.) in a way that repositions the student as the leader of his own learning. By giving students more agency, the idea is to disrupt old routines around teaching and learning that make the student dependent on the teacher for receiving knowledge.

21 Sensory Activities for Focus & Calm Engage the to help your home learners feel calm and stay focused. Grumpy, frustrated, worried, bored, overwhelmed (insert adjective describing your child's mood here) home learners can all benefit from a sensory break to engage their senses, boost self-regulation, and shake things up a bit. Parents of home learners, and educators soon to welcome students back into the classroom, take note: all it takes is a little to create meaningful sensory experiences. Try one of the activities from the list below when your child becomes fidgety, disengaged, anxious, or overwhelmed. Even better, plan a handful of activities throughout the day, because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (and sensory activities can be a lot of fun for adults and children alike!).

5 Must-Have Google Search Tips for Students Is Google OK for formal research? Sure ... if you know how to use it. For those of us who remember a time before the internet, using Google for research might feel strange -- like being thrust from the cozy confines of a favorite library straight into the Wild West of the web. Seeing Through Watcher's Eyes The thirty-two foot collaborative mural Through Watchers’ Eyes designed by tSouke member kQwa’st’not (Charlene George) is a teaching/learning tool exploring indigenous culture, teachings and the environment. Through a nine-month collaborative process, this mural was painted at Spencer Middle School on the territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples (Songhees and Esquimalt Nations). Through Watchers’ Eyes shares a complex and deep story seen through the eyes of Coast Salish SNA’WY’ALTH (practice and teaching) with the Wild Man and the Wild Woman. It invites voices and views that are noticeably absent in our present-day society, particularly when it comes to how we see nature and our place in it.

Smore Newsletters for Education Five research-based principles of second language instruction should form the basis for the education of English language learners in grades PreK – 12. Teachers can use the five principles and specific teaching and learning strategies to accelerate the learning process, promote academic achievement, and foster academic language acquisition (Levine, Smallwood, & Haynes, 2012a, 2012b).
