‘It opened everything up.’ How school home visits are changing relationships in Detroit

curate [/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Instead of spending time enjoying one of the first warm spring evenings of the year, teacher Melanie Wallace and Principal Melissa Scott from Coleman A. Young Elementary School spend hours after the school day ends driving from home to home to visit their students families.
  • Thats why Detroit district leaders this year announced a major expansion of school home visits, taking something that schools such as Coleman A. Young had been doing occasionally and on their own, and formalizing the process with help from a $3 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
  • Scott said going to homes is a necessity to build relationships with parents at her school, and that the community has unique needs she wouldnt know about otherwise.
  • Research says home visits can particularly help overcome barriers related to low-income parents work constraints and transportation problems when trying to strengthen the relationship between parents and the school.
  • Scott chalks the increase up to prospective parents either hearing about or seeing the intense level of support the school provides, including the home visits.

5 Ways to Help Your Students Become Better Questioners

curate [/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • For the most part, in our workplaces as well as our classrooms, it is the answers we reward — while the questions are barely tolerated.
  • The Right Question Institute, a nonprofit group that teaches inquiry skills in low-income schools, encourages teachers to run group exercises dedicated entirely to formulating questions (no answers allowed!)
  • The second-grade teacher Julie Grimm uses a 10 by 10 exercise, in which kids are encouraged to come up with 10 great questions about a topic during a 10-minute span.
  • There are countless ways to inject a game element into questioning, but heres an example borrowed from the business world: Some companies use a practice called the 5 whys, which involves formulating a series of why questions to try to get to the root of a problem.
  • As for the behavioral habits associated with good questioning, here are a few: Questioners train themselves to observe everyday surroundings with vuja de eyes that see the familiar in fresh ways; theyre always on the lookout for assumptions (including their own) that should be questioned; and theyre willing to ask…

This Math Problem for Five-Year-Olds Has the Internet Stumped

curate [/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • The difficult equation, which was originally published on a Chinese test for five-year-olds, reads like this: If three red flowers added together equals 60, two blue flowers plus one red flower equals 30, and one blue flower minus two yellow flowers equals three, then what is one yellow flower plus…
  • The second equation has one red flower plus two blue flowers notice both of these blue flowers have five petals each.
  • If the end result of the second problem is 30, then this means the petals have a value of one, which makes two blue flowers equal 10.
  • In the third question, there is a blue flower with five petals minus two yellow flowers equal to three.
  • If the yellow flower equals one, and the red flower is equal to 20, and the blue flower’s value is based on the number of petals it has, then the last blue flower has a value of four.
