Analyze Literature Critically Using the SIFT Method
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Ms. Berkowitz and Coleytown Middle School students prepare for a class discussion comparing the tone/theme of two different poems by systematically breaking down the individual poems using the SIFT method (symbolism, imagery, figurative language, tone/theme). Working independently, students identify examples of the first three components before making decisions about the overall tone and theme of the work. In small groups, students then discuss their findings and compare elements of the two poems. Ms. Berkowitz transitions to a larger class discussion by focusing on the differing tone and theme found in the poems and sharing how literary elements contribute to understanding the tone/theme.

The Art of Questioning: Content, Meaning and Style
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Ms. Schaefer leads her 12th grade ELA students through a critical analysis of Atul Gawandes 'The Case of the Red Leg' through careful sequencing of questions.Initial questions ask students to react to the content of the text, forming and justifying their own opinions or perspective. This allows a maximum number of students to access the content and increases participation in the discussion. Questions then address the broader meaning of the text, using students understanding of the content to develop meaning and consider alternative points of view. Finally, questions focus on the style of writing and how stylistic elements contribute to the meaning found in the text.Structuring questions systematically gives students a tool for analyzing literature apart from the classroom so that their analysis is not dependent on teacher facilitation. Explicitly teaching students how to question is just as important as the analysis.

Read the Fine Print
Rating

Nicholas Carlisle, Executive Director of No Bully, works with parents of Alvarado Elementary School in San Francisco, California, to share information about bullying and to devise and practice strategies for bully-proofing their children.Mr. Carlisle begins by defining the repetitive nature of bullying and looks specifically at four different kinds of bullying: physical, verbal, social/relational, and cyberbullying. Identifies best practices and preventative measures to help prevent bullying.Mr. Broecker, principal, tells parents about a group at the school focused on addressing the subject of bullying at school. He urges parents to join teachers and staff at Alvarado Elementary working with a group called PEACE (Practicing Empathy and Caring with Everyone).Addressing the larger question of how parents might bully-proof their children is the focus of much of the discussion. Mr. Carlisle asks parents to become a solution-coach, balancing both the use of empathy and setting limits and establishing consequences so that students are better prepared to deal with bullying in their lives.In small groups, parents practice what they have heard by discussing bullying scenarios and how they would help their child in specific bullying situations. This is followed by group discussion where parents share ideas for certain scenarios.

C-V-C: Phonemic Awareness
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Kindergarten teacher Heather Lopez works with her students on consonant-vowel-consonant (C-V-C) single-syllable words as they learn to read. Some students need to sound out some of the words while others are already able to blend the onset with the rime. Ms. Lopez holds up a word for the students to read and then act out. She uses this process first for whole group guided practice. She then calls on individual students to read the word and has the whole class act it out as a means of helping them remember the word's meaning. Calling on individual students helps her informally assess where each students is at in their language development and specifically their ability to blend the onset and the rime.

Carbon Cycling: Create Your Own Biology Lab
Read the Fine Print

During the pre-lab, students are asked to read a brief article about photosynthesis and complete a KWL chart to identify their own knowledge and understanding coming into the experiment. Based on what they wish to learn, they create a problem statement that will become the basis for their experiments design.In collaborative groups, students write procedures, conduct their experiment, collect and record data and prepare for the final, reflective portion of the experience. During this phase, students determine the validity of their evidence and determine whether or not it supports their hypothesis. To improve future experiences, they also reflect upon how to make their data better and how to improve their use of the scientific process.
