    Student-Driven Questions are important to Project Based Learning.

    Special thanks to our friends at EdSurge who reminded us of Lindsey Own's recent blog, Student-developed Driving Questions in Science PBL, and the importance of students creating and owning the Driving Questions in PBL. Share this with a teacher of friend!

    Project Based Learning can help students discover their voice and take part in authentic learning, asserts Lisa Gonzales, superintendent of the Portola Valley School District in California, which has received PBL training from BIE. Read the new District Administration article in which she describes her district's transition to a PBL environment. Share this with a superintendent, principal, teacher, or friend.

    The ´Ministry of education`, in an attempt to improve the quality of the English language teaching, has proposed to prioritize graduates in English philology and English translators to teach Shakespeare´s language.
    Education trade unions and teachers without university training in English have opposed the proposal!
    They believe that, despite the fact of not having specific knowledge to enable them to teach Shakespeare´s language, they are entitled to teach English. Philosophy teaching will disappear with the entry into force of the new educational system. Therefore, language teaching seems to be the only chance for those who are excluded.
    The lack of work in history and geography seems to be another reason. Such teachers have been recruited to give English lessons in the absence of art bachelors in English philology.
    However, the situation has changed. Spain has progressed and its population has increased. The new generations have become interested in languages and after studying for years at University, they are now qualified to teach English.
    The problem is that language teaching posts are already occupied by unqualified teachers who intend to stay there supported by their unions.
    Spaniards in general need to improve their foreign language skills. It´s a shame to listen to our politicians talking in English!
    Those same politicians, who speak double Dutch, are the real problem. Education trade unions are the problem.
    They have forgotten their main duty as a union, which is to improve or at least try their best to improve the quality in education.
    The unions´ only concern is to gain votes, affiliates and to satisfy the personal and economical interests of a small group of philosophy and history teachers.
    The only real victims are our children who are being deprived of having well prepared English teachers.
    Those art bachelors in English language are willing to teach them real English and not ´Double Dutch`

    Give us a chance!

    Has anyone ever done StoryCorps with their kids? We're about to do our own version, but I'm still looking for the best way to "host" the students' recorded interviews, images, etc. What I'd like is to have an archive for my district that we can add to year after year. And the public would have access to it, so students could share with their relatives, etc. I thought we might be able to do it on edmodo, but not sure. Or a weekly account. But with each one, there are drawbacks. Just checking if anyone's ever done it...would love your thoughts? Thanks! http://www.storycorps.org if you're not familiar with it.

      • Mrs. Kostecki - I love this idea. What about just using a real podcasting service, or a website the could host the audio files?

        • Apr 14, 2015
      • Mrs. Alamo - Do you recommend a website, Mrs. Kostecki? One of the criteria is that the kids will have to edit their own clips, write the summary and upload images. The potential problems with kids having editing capabilities (of other students' work) are many, of course. My tech person is coming by today and we're going to look into google sites as a possibility. I'll keep you posted.

    Here is the April 2015 Episode of Tar Heel Teachers! We discuss the idea of stretching one great teacher across multiple classrooms, Hispanics helping to drive growth in CMS, and students being responsible for most upkeep in schools in lieu of custodians. We are joined by Dr. Toni Witherow (Instructional Coach with NCDPI) who shares a math strategy for word problems. Also, Aritia Smalls shows us how to turn trash into organizational treasure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9Dwo-KKW7U

      • Ms. Benner - Looking for any projects for all Pre-Algebra (8th grade) standards that involve real world application and research. I've finished new content and after next week's FSA testing I would like to dive deeper and get some valuable application in and introduce some basic algebra topics by the end of these 4th nine weeks.
