10 ways to improve students’ long-term learning – Ditch That Textbook
Rating

What can students do to make learning really stick?

Cognitive science tells us it's NOT to re-read our notes or textbook.

Instead, practice "retrieval" -- recalling what we've learned out of our brains, not our books.

This post outlines 10 simple tips and strategies you can use in class to make learning long-term, including:
1. Brain dumps
2. Two things
3. Retrieve taking (instead of note taking)
4. Student-produced quizzes
5. Guided conversation
6. Now, then, and way back
7. Self testing
8. Recall information visually
9. Retrieval mapping
10. White board exit ticket

14 Tips to Doing Rewrites, Redos, and Reassessments the Right Way
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In Rick Wormeli’s article Redos and Retakes Done Right, he states “allowing students to redo assignments and assessments is the best way to prepare them for adult life.”
According to Wormeli, many teachers feel that denying students opportunities to show their full potential after providing substantial results builds ‘moral fibre’. These teachers have the mindset that there should be rigid deadlines for assignments and that marks should be taken off for late submissions, and even give zeroes in some situations. Wormeli counters by claiming that “these practices have the opposite effect: They retard student achievement and maturation.”
In Kenaston School, specifically in math and the senior sciences, students have the opportunity to redo assessments in 2011-2012. Teachers have taken Wormeli’s guidelines into consideration, applying some of his recommendations. Kenaston teachers advise that by incorporating Wormeli’s ideas into practice, teachers can make redos fair for both the student and teacher.

3 R's: Revolution, Reaction and Reform
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Ms. DiMaggio's 4th graders explore the essential but complex concepts of revolution, reaction, and reform. They begin with what she calls a "Quick Write" in which students independently write about anything they know about the three given words. Students then discuss what they've written in small groups. Next, students rotate around the room in teams to analyze photos of historical events responding in writing with ŇI see. . . I think. . . I wonder. . .. Ms. DiMaggio was careful in selecting a wide variety of photos to post given the complexity of these concepts and to address possible misconceptions or limits to understanding. For example, some students initially focused on the word ŇrevolutionÓ being related to war or the 1800's. When they analyzed a photo of technology, they quickly realized a broader definition of "revolution".

This is an individual strategy in which students are presented with a list of statements that are related to the topic(s) presented in a text/video that will be read or viewed.

- To introduce a new topic from reading an article on the topic or viewing a video
- To build a student’s personal interest in the subject he/she will be reading about or seeing
- To establish a purpose for reading text/viewing a video (students read to gather information that will either confirm or dispute their initial beliefs and cause them to rethink their beliefs)
- To develop critical-thinking skills
