  • Curation projects have the potential to put our students to work at three different levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy: – – If we go beyond Bloom’s and consider the Framework for 21st Century Learning put out by the Partnership for 21st Century Learning, we’ll see that critical thinking is one of…
  • Ranked Collection: Students collect a set of articles, images, videos, or even whole websites based on a set of criteria (the most “literary” song lyrics of the year, or the world’s weirdest animal adaptations) and rank them in some kind of order, justifying their rankings with a written explanation or…
  • (Bloom’s Levels: Understand for summarization, Evaluate for judging the quality of the videos) – – Museum Exhibit: Task students with curating a digital “exhibit” around a given theme.
  • (Bloom’s Level: Understand if it’s just a collection of representative elements, Create if they are truly creating a new “whole” with their collection, such as representing a particular point of view with their choices) – – Real World Examples: Take any content you’re teaching (geometry principles, grammar errors, science or…
  • Favorites: Have students pull together a personal collection of favorite articles, videos, or other resources for a Genius Hour, advisory, or other more personalized project: A collection of items to cheer you up, stuff to boost your confidence, etc.

  • An art student responded to a teacher’s suggestion that she should “dial down the feminism” in her work in the best possible way.
  • In response to the male educator’s “tip,” 23-year-old London-based Alex Ruth Bertulis-Fernandes created this piece: – Last week one of my art teachers suggested I ‘dial down the feminism.’
  • Today I showed him my newest piece: pic.twitter.com/VrnB4oJ8Cz— AlexBertulisFernande (@alexbertanades) February 7, 2018 – – – Bertulis-Fernandes shared the image to Twitter on Wednesday night, and it immediately set the social media platform abuzz.
  • — kt (@k_to_the_t) February 8, 2018 – – – I’m a female art teacher and am angry that a male art teacher said this to you.
  • Keep that dial turned right up— Ann Graham (@Annie_m_g) February 7, 2018 – – – It’s unclear exactly what format her artwork took, or whether it’s solely a digital image.

  • Students and their teacher watch the progress of their paper rockets during a “tinkering day.”
  • Instead, he says a teacher’s main job should be to help students develop key skills necessary for when they leave school.
  • The other two thirds named teachers, who upon further investigation, were outliers in their schools.
  • Wagner found that all of these tremendously influential teachers ran classrooms that emphasized interdisciplinary learning, real team collaboration, risk taking, creating learning as opposed to consuming knowledge, and cultivated intrinsic motivation in students.
  • These teachers made room for playful exploration and student passions in the classroom, helping their students to develop the purpose that drives them.

  • I do not send out standard, day-to-day lesson plans, simply because teaching is not standard, and things change on a moment’s notice when we get new ideas, or students want to spend more time on a certain topic.
  • Too many times, teachers are caught up in content delivery, grades, and other routines that we establish and place before the relationships we build.
  • The moment a teacher forgets they are in the people business is the moment they stop being an effective leader How can we be innovative in our approach to building relationships with students?
  • Just as this shift has made our classrooms more innovative, it has also made the need for positive and innovative relationships with student more important and vital than ever before.
  • The teacher who still views their role as “delivering content” because they are the “professional educator” is in danger of fracturing relationships with students that cannot afford to be fractured.
