Transcript of "Let's Hear it for the Kids"

  1. 1. “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” …President Barack Obama, 21st Century Skills Topic 3: Let’s Hear it for The Kids Why do kids misbehave? How can we give students a voice?

  2. 2. Compare and Contrast The Rowdy Classroom The Engaged Classroom
  3. 3. The Rowdy Classroom Intervention Required Immediately: How many inappropriate behaviors? Why are these kids misbehaving? What is the learning task? What instructional strategies do you see being used? What would you do? (if you were the sub the next day) How will you give these students a voice?
  4. 4. The Engaged Classroom What are the students doing? What is the teacher doing? How have these students been given a voice? Where would you rather teach? Where would you rather learn?

  16. 16. It’s easy to ask the questions…… It’s how we respond to this data in making instructional design decisions 1. All schools held a Speak Out run by the students themselves 2. All schools studied student engagement as a professional development practice 3. All schools were required to provide an action plan in response to this data (part of the annual school improvement plan) 4. All students (and teachers) were learners for life 5. All students were engaged and excited to learn “We’ve only just begun......to learn” What if…..
  17. 17. "The good teacher unconditionally accepts students as they are, and expects them to become all they can be". ***Holly Holland Students are part of the TEAMS in our schools TEAMS Together Everyone Achieves More Success How do we involve students in helping us to manage the learning environment? How do we build a community of learning? How do we give our students a voice?
