10 Powerful Community-Building Ideas
Rating

Teachers have long known that feeling safe and secure in school helps students focus their energy on learning. And the research bears that out: A 2018 study found that when teachers deliberately foster a sense of belonging by greeting each student at the door of the class, they see “significant improvements in academic engaged time and reductions in disruptive behavior.”

This post outlines ideas from teachers for ensuring that every student in the classroom feels like they belong.

Some of the activities included take less than five minutes. They’re divided up among the grades, but many can apply across all of the years from kindergarten to 12th grade.

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

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.
