This is a 2-3 minute read. What Problem Based Learning means to me As I have mentioned elsewhere, I first encountered Problem Based Learning during my MA studies. It struck me as a potential approach to answer a host
In keeping with my resolutions for the new school year ( see previous post), I've added a new daily activity to my pre-school classes. I call it 'Talk Time' because I like alliteration and it's simple enough for the little ones to say and remember.
This year has been an incredible learning journey for me so far. As I have worked to give power back over to my students in the classroom and to help them take more ownership of their learning, I have seen dramatic results. This classroom is quickly becoming a shared space.
I can't believe it is almost time for Thanksgiving again. I feel like I am in the Spy Kids movie, All the Time in the World, where a timekeeper steals [...]
Monday 10th November was our first time hosting a TeachMeet - it was great to meet people who we had only seen on twitter before. There were some great presentations about how to provide students...
In Part One of this amazing trilogy, I may have left the impression that my goal was to cover 225+ years of American History through the lense of "Liberty vs. Security." Thats' a good goal - I like it - but I'm not sure I'm the man for the job.

There's been a great story in the last two days about one of my old favourites, Mossbourne, announcing that it plans to select some of its children by "aptitude to row". Immediately, a brief spat broke out between those who saw this as a proxy for selection by "aptitude-to-have-wealthy-parents", and those who thought such carping was merely left-wing nonsense; nothing wrong with boats; rowing isn't posh etc etc.

Curtis Elementary is getting a make-over, and it is extreme! Our building is looking fabulous. I can't wait for the upcoming school year. Students, parents, and staff members will walk into our building to see this exciting transformation. It looks brand new! I can't help but get excited about the journey we are about to begin.
Here's my 1 minute tutorial of ReciteThis.com- a super easy site that takes your text (quotes, titles, etc.) and makes them look great in a variety of templates. It's free, and there's no registration.
It's an example that to be truly engaged you need to be a lifetime learner. No matter how old or how wise we become, we are never to old to learn something new. Teaching and learning about podcasting has now exposed me to what I suspect may be a new leisure time activity.
I have recently returned from a very busy 5-week overseas trip as part of my sabbatical leave this semester. This trip enabled me to visit a small handful of researchers and academic departments whose interests intersect with mine with respect to language development/disorders, early literacy instruction, and psychosocial aspects of being an adolescent with a language-learning disability.

I was very honored to be participate in the very first Bright Bytes Research Institute in San Francisco: Re-MAKE Learning: Research Behind Building and Creating. Below is a summary of my experience and reflections.
Teachers have accepted the mission happily! Many have created in-class attendance policies and procedures. They presented students with the guidelines and also some incentives to having perfect attendance. The really cool part is many teachers have created visual displays to keep the students engaged in tracking their attendance.
