Q & A Collections: Instructional Strategies
I'll begin posting new questions and answers next week, and during the summer have been sharing thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past five years.
Here are the ones I've posted:
Today's theme is on instructional strategies, and I'm using that term broadly. I've shared many instructional strategies in previous specialized thematic collections. The ones in this post are important ones that don't quite fit into the previous lists.
You can see them following this excerpt from one of them:
What data is, how can it be used effectively, and how can it be misused are questions we'll consider today with commentaries from Nancy Fichtman Dana, Dr. Jenni Donohoo, Myron Dueck, Pete Hall, Andrew Miller, Jessica A. Hockett, Kristina J. Doubet and Kimberly Long.
This post features contributions from Roxanna Elden, Barnett Berry and Pedro Noguera, along with comments from readers.
Diana Laufenberg, Jeff Charbonneau, Ted Appel and special guest John Hattie share their thoughts.
Debbie Diller and Leslie Blauman share their thoughts, as do readers.
Three educators -- Julia Thompson, Ariel Sacks and Gini Cunningham -- contribute their responses.
This post features guest responses from three educators -- Virginia McEnerney, David Booth and Heather Wolpert-Gawron.
Educator/authors Dr. Cathy Vatterott and Bryan Harris contribute their thoughts here.
Three experienced educators -- Michael Thornton, Gloria Lodato Wilson, and Ira David Socol -- offer their thoughts on the topic.
This post features guest contributions from Jonah Lehrer, former staff writer for The New Yorker and author of Imagine: How Creativity Works, and from Ashley Merryman co-author of NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children.
Middle School teacher Heather Wolpert-Gawron, author of 'Tween Crayons and Curfews :Tips for Middle School Teachers and I share our ideas...
Three guests share their recommendations: Ron Ritchhart, author and researcher for Harvard's Project Zero; educator Todd Stanley, co-author of Critical Thinking and Formative Assessments: Increasing the Rigor in Your Classroom; and Robert Swartz, Director of The National Center for Teaching Thinking.
Barbara R. Blackburn, author of Rigor is NOT a Four-Letter Word; Cris Tovani, author of So...What do They Really Know?; and "Senior Provocateur" Ira Socol provide diverse guest responses, and I throw-in an intriguing chart.
I hope you've found this summary useful and, again, keep those questions coming!
