"7. Highlighting texts helps students score better on multiple-choice comprehension tests." So what happens when they take computer-based test? Is there a strategy that we can share with them? This is something that has been plaguing me for awhile now.

We have to find more ways to help our young students of color develop their many talents begining in the early grades, and keep them from falling behind. We need more caring teachers, more caring parents and mentors, and more caring students.

The young person will put themselves on their path to learning if we would stop getting in their way with our opinion of what works and is needed and simply let the learners lead with our support. Listen to the teachers, they know but are not listened to. Observe a two year old self motivate
Observe a six year being curious
Observe adults telling children how to learn . . . public education.

Our book focuses on culturally relevant teaching. How teaching is done is, of course, important. But, what is taught is often given less attention. We hope our book and the student edition will contribute to a better narrative.

I have used these for years in a 9th grade world geo class. True ISNB followers are sticklers for the whole right page left page rule. Like anything in education, each individual teacher should make the ISNB a tool which reflects the culture of the teacher's classroom and unique styles of the teacher and the students. I found that wh en I gave students some choice and some flexibility, they bought into the ISNB more. I ♡♡♡ these notebooks.

I've used one for years. Some students fight it then come back next year and tell me how much they miss it. They realize the value of having all their work organized

I use these in my 11th and 12th grade chemistry classes, I love that we put the essentials in it, and they don't lose it!! It's been much more effective than keeping a binder was.

02/22/2017 at 18:37
Bogus. I agree, and it should be obvious that teaching and learning about "feelings" and how to be mindful is of great benefit, but putting a monetary amount like $11 is laughable. And you selling yourself and those children short.

Some students have experienced things they should not have seen at their young ages or at anytime. They end up being hyper vigilant... unable to sit still, constantly ready to flee, watching the door, and wound up. They cannot help it. It is not willful. It's the body's autonomic response to danger that got stuck in the on position. They need love, constancy, guidance, attention, and opportunities to succeed. As teachers, we can make this happen, but it is a lot of work. ❤

This is a really good, easily digestible article on neuroscience and how it impacts students. I have been working in a PLC via the University of Washington and the National Institute of Mental Health, over the past 5 years, learning about and researching all the things in this article. This is a good article to show to your administrator, share with your school PLC and disseminate to colleagues who have yet to become interested in neuroscience and learning.

02/23/2017 at 22:08
We are proficiency based at our school. My students get feedback on their behavior, their work, and their contributions to the class- If they don't meet the expected level of proficiency then they keep working at it. Sometimes they redo the work. Sometimes they come up with their own plan. We work together to learn and the kids know what is expected. I don't ever want to go back to old grading.
02/22/2017 at 17:16
SMH..this is not preparing them for life. Behavior is part of education and the child needs to be accountable to perform or have consequences for not.
