L.I.F.T. – an effective writing-proficiency and metacognition enhancer Many years ago, as an L2 college student writer of English and French I often had doubts about the accuracy of what I wrote in my essays, especially when I was trying out a new and complex grammar structure or an idiom I had heard someone use.

Unlike summative assessment, which evaluates student learning according to a benchmark, formative assessment monitors student understanding so that kids are always aware of their academic strengths and learning gaps. Meanwhile, teachers can improve the effectiveness of their instruction, re-teaching if necessary. "When the cook tastes the soup," writes Robert E. Stake, "that's formative; when the guests taste the soup, that's summative."

If you’re slow to recognize the potential in these extremely potent elements (culled from the above video’s opening shot), this free online course on storytelling, part of Khan Academy’s popular Pixar In A Box series, might help strengthen those slack storytelling muscles. The lessons will hold immense appeal for young Pixar fans, but adults students stand to gain too. Got to Teach!: Four Corners: A Cooperative Learning Strategy (Post 4 of 5) Thanks for checking out this post on using "Four Corners" as a cooperative learning activity in the classroom. If you would like to view the other posts in this series of Cooperative Learning Strategies, you can find them here: "Expert Groups," "Q&A Match-Up," and "Circle Chats." How It Works: Choose four aspects of a topic that your class is currently focusing on.Assign each of these aspects to a corner (or an area) of your room.Present the topic and the four related aspects to the whole group and give the students some "think time."Students can then choose a corner to discuss the topic.Representatives from each corner can share what their respective groups discussed. Why I Love This:

Movie clips for teachers and students Before the summer I wrote (in swedish) a blogtext about books that teachers could read during summer to get interesting pedagogical discussions with their colleagues this autumn.

Most of them are in english and between ten and twenty minutes long. Got to Teach!: Expert Groups: A Cooperative Learning Strategy {Post 1 of 5} One of the most important elements of teaching is providing students with plenty of opportunities to actively engage in learning with their peers.

I will begin with "Expert Groups," a strategy that can easily be used in grades 3-8+, and one that I find especially useful when teaching a class of diverse learners.

Today I am going to outline the use of what I have termed "Q&A Match-Up." I first saw this strategy used by one of my student teachers as a review activity before a science unit test; my students and I LOVED it! Since then I have used it countless times with just about any subject and/or topic. Create a set of questions and answers based on the topic your class is studying.
