Empowered - After School

I just read an article by Susan B. Neuman in the  in the April 2010 Educational Leadership Magazine titled above.  I had to laugh b/c we can barely get what we need in NJ during the day to find funding opportunitities to provide after school enrichment for our kids.  Neuman says that "After school programs are more than just safety nets.  They promote positive development and expand children's goals for school and beyond."This is where we might truly engage students to find interests and solve…See More

"Giving useful feedback is an area where I could use some further refinement. In my early 20s, when I was doing the coursework for my counseling degree, I discovered that I was far too directive to be a truly effective counselor. As a teacher, I…"

""Be a guide, not an evaluator," to promote learning instead of performance. Love that. We do need to help the students get better at learning, and using their failures as feedback they can use when we reassess. Since the feedback will help…"

Never Work Harder Chapter 5

Chapter 5 is all about feedback! Feedback to the students to improve their learning. What kind of feedback do you give? Is it higher level feedback that will prompt the student to improve? I would like to believe that the feedback I give is powerful, but I am wondering if this is true. One way that we as teachers can try to improve this is to observe each other. We also need to be open to constructive criticism... this can be challenging from our peers. How do you evaluate yourself? I would…See More

Kathleen Zinski replied to Cris Reinhold's discussion Never Work Harder Chapter 4 in the group Somers Point Teachers
