One size does not fit all, CPD in a modern school Published on April 27th, 2015 | by Mark Anderson One of great things about teaching is that each year the page resets itself. Children come back from their summer holidays that little bit different. A little taller, new experiences, maybe with a tan, a little more street-wise, complaining their wrists hurt because their writing practice has fallen by the wayside over the last few weeks. In fact whilst these things are true over a holiday break many of them are also true on a daily basis. They are more pronounced over a holiday because the period is much longer, especially the lack of practice with writing.

Some Excellent Rubric Generators for Teachers July 3, 2016 A few days ago we published here in EdTech and mLearning a collection of some interesting web tools teachers can use to create educational rubrics. Today, we are adding this wonderful resource from Teachnology which is basically a huge selection of pre-made rubrics and rubric generators that can be integrated into different subject areas. As we have argued elsewhere, rubrics are helpful for both teachers and students: teachers can use them when designing lesson plans and grading assignments; students can use them to make sure they meet the learning expectations and requirements of an assignment or project work. Teachnology’s rubrics are arranged into 10 main categories: general, language arts, learn about them, math, pre-made collection, process, rubric maker membership, science, social studies, and all rubrics.

Free Homeschool High School Credit Planner - Five J's Homeschool Planning coursework for high school can be a daunting task. How do I know which courses my child needs to take?

Self Authoring How it works The Future Authoring Program is designed to help you imagine your ideal future, three to five years down the road. What would your life be like if you could set it up in the manner that would be best for you?

Then you will be asked to write freely, without regard for grammar or spelling, for 15-20 minutes, on a page like this one. It is best to use your imagination, to daydream, during this process.

Is Facebook Making Us Lonely? - Stephen Marche Yvette Vickers, a former Playboy playmate and B-movie star, best known for her role in Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, would have been 83 last August, but nobody knows exactly how old she was when she died. According to the Los Angeles coroner’s report, she lay dead for the better part of a year before a neighbor and fellow actress, a woman named Susan Savage, noticed cobwebs and yellowing letters in her mailbox, reached through a broken window to unlock the door, and pushed her way through the piles of junk mail and mounds of clothing that barricaded the house. Upstairs, she found Vickers’s body, mummified, near a heater that was still running.

An Excellent Collection of Educational Rubrics to Help You Integrate Technology in Your Teaching July 9, 2016 Rubrics are integral to the teaching and learning process taking place inside the classroom. ‘Rubrics are scoring charts used to assess and evaluate a particular learning or teaching activity. As is explained in this guide, rubrics are helpful for both teachers and students: teachers can use them when designing lesson plans and grading assignments; students can use them to make sure they meet the learning expectations and requirements of an assignment or project work.’ In today’s post, we are re-sharing with you a wonderful resource from University of Wisconsin which will help you make the best of rubrics in your teaching. This is basically a collection of professionally designed rubrics that you can use for a wide variety of instructional tasks including:’assessing portfolios, group work/cooperative learning, concept map, research process/ report, PowerPoint, oral presentation, web page, blog, wiki, and other social media projects.’ Screenshot source: Wiki Rubric

Psychology 101 at AllPsych Online Introduction and Authorship Welcome to Psychology 101. Have a seat and make yourself comfortable, we are about to start class. Quotes About Studying “Study, along the lines which the theologies have mapped, will never lead us to discovery of the fundamental facts of our existence. That goal must be attained by means of exact science and can only be achieved by such means. The fact that man, for ages, has superstitiously believed in what he calls a God does not prove at all that his theory has been right. There have been many gods – all makeshifts, born of inability to fathom the deep fundamental truth.

Bash Console Colours for C++ Here's a little header file for C/C++ that I knocked up to make colouring console output a little easier. Not all of these colour codes are supported by every console emulator, but if you stick to the primary colours, you should be fine. And here's how to use it. Note that you've got to set the colours back to default at the end of the sequence. #include "../shellColours.h"#includeusing namespace std; int main (){ cout << SH_FG_BLUE << "Foreground Blue" << SH_DEFAULT << endl; cout << SH_BG_GREEN << "Background Green" << SH_DEFAULT << endl; cout <<; SH_UNDERLINE << "Text Underlined" << SH_DEFAULT << " Back To Normal Text" << endl; }
