B 97168B 97168 Being the Change: Lessons and Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension
Grade Lvl: T Author: Ahmed, Sara K
Length: 139 Copyright: 2018

Topics such as race, gender, politics, religion, and sexuality are part of our students' lives, yet when these subjects are brought up at school teachers often struggle with how to respond. How do we create learning conditions where kids can ask the questions they want to ask, muddle through how to say the things they are thinking, and have tough conversations? How can we be proactive and take steps to engaging in the types of conversations where risk is high but the payoff could be even greater? Being the Change is based on the idea that people can develop skills and habits to serve them in the comprehension of social issues. Sara K. Ahmed identifies and unpacks the skills of social comprehension, providing teachers with tools and activities that help students make sense of themselves and the world as they navigate relevant topics in today's society. Each chapter includes clear, transferrable lessons and practical strategies that help students learn about a targeted social comprehension concept. From exploring identity and diversity to understanding and addressing biases and microaggressions, Sara demonstrates how to address real issues honestly in the classroom while honoring and empowering students. Dealing with social issues is uncomfortable and often messy, but you can build habitats of trust where kids and adults can make their thinking visible and cultivate empathy; where expression, identity, and social literacy matter. There is no magic formula for making the world a better place. It happens in the moments we embrace discomfort and have candid conversations.

Learning with technology does not happen because a specific tool “revolutionizes” education. It happens when proven teaching strategies intersect with technology tools, and yet it is not uncommon for teachers to use a tool because it is “fun” or because the developer promises it will help students learn. Learning First, Technology Second offers teachers the professional learning they need to move from arbitrary uses of technology in their classrooms to thoughtful ways of adding value to student learning. This book includes: an introduction to the Triple E Framework that helps teachers engage students in time-on-task learning, enhance learning experiences beyond traditional means and extend learning opportunities to bridge classroom learning with students’ everyday lives; effective strategies for using technology to create authentic learning experiences for their students; case studies to guide appropriate tech integration; and a lesson planning template to show teachers how to effectively frame technology choices and apply them in instruction.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Duckor, Brent / Holmberg, Carrie
Length: 360 Copyright: 2017

Educators Brent Duckor and Carrie Holmberg invite you on the journey to becoming a formative assessor. Authors encourage educators to focus on these seven research-based, high-leverage formative assessment moves: Priming—building on background knowledge and creating a formative assessment rich, equitable classroom culture. Posing—asking questions in relation to learning targets across the curriculum that elicit Habits of Mind. Pausing—waiting after powerful questions and rich tasks to encourage more student responses by supporting them to think aloud and use speaking and listening skills related to academic language. Probing—deepening discussions, asking for elaborations, and making connections using sentence frames and starters. Bouncing—sampling student responses systematically to broaden participation, manage flow of conversation, and gather more "soft data" for instructional use. Tagging—describing and recording student responses without judgment and making public how students with different styles and needs approach learning in real-time. Binning—interpreting student responses with a wide range of tools, categorizing misconceptions and "p-prims," and using classroom generated data to make more valid and reliable instructional decisions on next steps in the lesson and unit. Each chapter explores a classroom-tested move, including foundational research, explaining how and when to best use it, and describing what it looks like in practice. Highlights include case studies, try-now tasks and tips, and advice from beginning and seasoned teachers who use these formative assessment moves in their classrooms.

KM 12902KM 12902 Sticker Strategies: Practical Strategies to Encourage Social Thinking and Organization 2nd Edition
Grade Lvl: PIJST Author: Winner, Michelle Garcia
Length: 60 Copyright: 2010

By providing a CD and book now you can print as many strategies you want onto standard labels and flipbooks and save the formatted stickers in Word for your student. You can still print from formatted strategies in the included book. A popular tool, the previous book included actual stickers, making it expensive to print. This CD/book package is half the first version's price and more versatile! While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (Asperger's, high-functioning autism, ADHD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder - a more powerful teacher than an adult's "nag." This CD/book package allows for a student to learn a strategy presented in the book, then the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flipbook with him/her throughout the day. With the flipbook, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies s/he already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions, while teaching self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere. This is a great tool for a student who recognizes his/her weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students who either don't realize that they need improvement or who aren't motivated to help themselves. Enhanced strategies include those for: Asking for Help; Emotions and Problem Solving; Organization, Writing and Homework; Group Work; Social Thinking; Family Time - Home Strategies This innovative tool is best for 3rd grade to 12th grade students.
