Doing well on the exam replaces other senses of purpose.I’m continually frustrated by the pull to wrest reading and writing from meaningful contexts and to map texts and words over grids of point values.
Every day my students take mini-quizzes via Google Forms so I can gauge whether they understand the topic I just covered or if I need to modify my instruction.
Students need both digital and soft skills to guide them through college, into the workplace and beyond.
High school students are learning how to work independently and use technology to explore new concepts.
Typically, half of my edits will require students to think deeply before hitting the “accept” button.
It forces them to play a more active role in their learning, and to constantly challenge ideas.
