So the time is finally right around the corner for High Tech High to share some of their tools to bring project-based learning and deeper learning to your classroom. Click on the link below for the schedule!
Sorry for the delay. I like to have a new blog post up before 8am, but I got in a bit of trouble this morning. So, I am running a bit behind. Before I ate the $20 and got sick, I had some time to research excellent science and math projects. This information might help give you an idea for the High Tech High Deeper Learning workshop next Monday and Tuesday! All of these resources can also be found in the math and science page on the top of my blog!
Using the standards, this teacher has put all of her projects online for each grade level, 6th-8th grade. High Tech High is a textbook-free school that uses projects to teach the core math skills. Click on each grade level and see projects of each one
Greetings! I am so happy to announce that High Tech High expert teachers in project-based learning will be coming to Mayfield on November 3rd and 4th to help us create projects for our classrooms! Do you have a project idea for your grade level that you have wanted to do if given the time for collaboration and time with your students? Take the poll!
Here are some links to project-based learning that may help you prepare for their arrival:
Hello everyone! I have been doing some light reading in between naps and I read some interesting things about academic mindsets.
Did you know that if a student doesn’t feel like he or she can be successful on a particular assignment, he or she is less likely to perform at potential and potentially not even do the assignment?
Did you know that telling a student he or she is smart is actually hindering potential growth? Studies show that if that same “smart” student doesn’t feel “as smart” and struggles with a future assignment, he or she will lose the growth mindset and will stop putting in effort.
Did you know the best form of compliment for a student is focused on the effort he or she took to do the work?
What can you do to instill a growth mindset for your students? Here are some links to help you figure that out.
I am the irrepressible, Olive Sanders. I am a tri-colored chiweenie and I spends my days sunbathing, sleeping and barking at sounds nobody else can hear. My real passion however, is education, especially deeper learning. I am embarking on an adventure to find the best resources, strategies and ideas on deeper learning. Join me!
