Book Review: Reading Reconsidered
posted by: Melissa | April 11, 2016, 04:43 pm

 

Doug Lemov, founder of Uncommon Schools, made national headlines with his book, Teach Like a Champion.  While many books on how to handle classrooms exist, Lemov did something that few had done before:  he watched the best teachers in the country and looked for the common characteristics they all shared.  By doing the research, his book was based neither on theoretical beliefs nor personal anecdotal evidence. Instead, the book was solidly based on research that gives practical advice on how to improve practice.

Guest post by Kenneth Waldman

Students frequently find themselves asking why they have to write yet another essay, and educators often forget to remind them about how essential essay writing is to self-development and future success. As a result, they often lose sight of the purpose for the assignment and don’t dedicate enough time to the project. This can be crippling to a new college student.

What Is Teacher Leadership?
posted by: Melissa | December 04, 2015, 06:18 pm

 

Award-Winning Educator Larry Ferlazzo recently delved into the meaty topic of teacher leadership in a great piece for Education Week.  Teacher leadership is one of those topics that can mean different things to different people and often reveals a lot about someone’s take on teachers in education.  For this reason, it is one of those topics that is critically important to come to a common understanding about.  In his blog, Ferlazzo asked six different educators how they defined teacher leadership.  As can be expected, their answers were revealing.

Let's face it…

 

Most students don't like writing.

 

The integral part of every educational system, academic writing is a must-do for all students; essays, theses, reviews, reports, dissertations – they develop critical thinking and teach students to express thoughts clearly and argumentatively. But more often than not, young people face problems when it comes to writing, which can be a lack of motivation, uninteresting topics, a lack of knowledge to cover them, no skills to research, no writing skills, a fear of failure, strict deadlines, etc.

The Issue of Teacher Licensure
posted by: Melissa | November 04, 2015, 05:29 pm

Alabama State Teacher of the Year and finalist for National Teacher of the Year, Ann Marie Corgill resigned from teaching after 21 years this week. By all accounts, Ms. Corgill was an excellent teacher.  She was a National Board Certified Teacher.  Her students, colleagues, and principal all spoke well of her.  She was a mentor to other teachers and a published author.  Moreover, there’s every indication that she loved her students and that she loved her job.  What could possibly drive such a talent out of the system?

Math Curriculum Weaker for Low Income Students
posted by: Melissa | September 30, 2015, 03:07 pm

 

Eliminating the achievement gap is a top education priority. While the existence of an achievement gap between poor students and their more wealthy peers has been shown to exist, what’s not always clear is the reason behind the persistence of that gap. Undoubtedly, poverty itself plays a roll, but there are also other factors that serve to widen and deepen this gap for students across America.

Support Vergara v. California
posted by: Alix | September 28, 2015, 02:08 pm
In a ruling last year that rocked the world of education, a California Superior Court decided in favor of nine public school students who challenged the state's quality-blind teacher tenure, dismissal and layoff laws. The Court found that by trapping students in classrooms with ineffective teachers, while pushing many effective teachers out of the classroom, the laws violated students' constitutional right to equal educational opportunity and in particular, disproportionately harmed low-income students and students of color.   Continue Reading...

By Sandi JacobsMs. Jacobs is vice president & managing director for state & district policy for the National Council on Teacher Quality. Learn more about NCTQ.

  Almost 6.4 million students—about 13% of students overall—receive special education services. Meanwhile, nearly the same percentage of the teacher workforce works in special education classrooms. Considering the need for these professionals and the specialized skills required of them, you’d think expectations for preparing and licensing special education teachers would be at least as high as they are for other teachers, if not higher.

This convention hosted nearly 7,000 delegates and union members from across the country in order to approve resolutions, take up stances on issues, and conduct administrative tasks.
