‘I never want to be in a neighborhood where I’m shot at again’

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

  • Subscribe now: – – When Mario Martinez went to Liberty University, a private Christian college in Lynchburg, Virginia, the affluence astonished him.
  • I was especially curious to know what Mario had to say about education and social class because I first met him ten years ago in a remedial writing class at a community college in Maryland.
  • Mario eventually transferred to Liberty, got a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and is now working on an M.B.A. at the University of Maryland.
  • What he observed among his peers at Liberty is that money had not just afforded them new cars, but entirely different life experiences.
  • Now that he’s working on a professional degree, I wondered whether Mario feels like he’s in a higher social class.

Why Teacher-Driven Coaching Looks Different for Every Learner – EdSurge News

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

  • James, a secondary teacher in his third year, was one of many teachers considering what this might look like for the students in his classroom.
  • I try and instill a sense in each teacher that making mistakes and failing forward is part of the process, so long as theyre learning and growing.Some of the early conversations James and I had were about Ruben Puenteduras SAMR model, which aims to move technology from substituting analog tasks…
  • So we arranged to observe a fellow teacher who effectively balances high expectations with positive student feedback, a practice that builds relationships with students while continuing to challenge them.
  • For many teachers in my district, coaching is a time to experiment with different ways of shifting their classroom culture to empower and engage students in ways they hadnt yet consideredmuch like moving a lesson up the ranks of the SAMR model.
  • For that work to be successful, any coaching must occur without judgment or advocacy, and must build upon need, as well as interest, resulting in a learning that is as personalized for teachers as it is for students.

Inside the Project-Based Program That’s Turning Refugees Into High School Grads – EdSurge News

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

  • As different as these students are in personality, they are equally thriving in a new program for English language learners in danger of aging-out of traditional high school.
  • (photo: A2G Team)Of the 35 students enrolled in this first year, 27 students, including Innocent and Muan, will graduate this month, diploma in hand, and four students may return next year to complete their credits.
  • Students in the A2G program speak two, and as many as five languages, including English.
  • Like Muan and Innocent, most of the students in the program have experienced interruptions in their formal education.
  • We know this program cannot remove every barrier faced by immigrant and refugee students as they build lives in the U.S. Importantly, we believe the strength of our program lies in supporting students like Innocent and Muan to move through their studies at the speed that works best for them,…

Spontaneous Inquiry

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

  • Don’t get me wrong, I do love my new role (it’s amazing and I have so many opportunities to grow from it) but I had let myself feel as though I can’t use an Inquiry approach as effectively in my classroom.
  • Those poor kids are so tired from a busy week and the last thing they want is something structured.
  • Today’s lesson was to introduce the Engineering Design Process (the last Prep class to have this lesson this week).
  • It was like it all hit me at once – this is a problem, one we could design a solution to; this is real world stuff, it’s in context; it’s already taking all the attention, I need to run with this; I can use the Engineering Design Process after all…
  • I got weird looking hats made from Duplo, A rotor made from Texo that spins so fast it Whooshes the rain away, an amazing ‘4 Wheel Drive chariot style device with a covered roof made from gears and a cool looking head cover that also stops the rain going in…
