Great job Snow and Moody! Good “Quad D” momentum at all levels — including professional learning. It was great to see our SOP strategy and instructional model being underscored in two different schools. Keep it going! @wilbert_snow @VBMoody #Middletown2021 #ChangeTheWorld
So fortunate to work with teachers, administrators and an incredibly creative and innovative superintendent here in Middletown, CT.
More Physical Activity Each Day Could Improve Academics For Children, Teens. In my experience, it also is essential for critical thinking and creativity---even for adults. My best problem solving comes when I'm pacing and walking. #suptchat #edchat
YES THIS! Tech like @photomath has made "show your work" obsolete. Instead, show your thinking! Video is one great way to do that. https://twitter.com/Screencastify/status/1119008851087511552 …
How many schools/districts know about this expiration policy on their #ChromeBooks?There are so many devices hitting this expiration mark in 2020.

IT’S NOT STUDENTS WHO ARE DISENGAGED, IT’S US! The next time a kid says “I don’t care,” what he or she really is saying is, “You haven’t given me sufficient reason to care. You’re not talking my language. You’re not listening.” https://educationpost.org/i-traveled-across-14-states-and-every-student-told-me-the-same-story-about-why-theyre-not-motivated-in-the-classroom/ … via @edu_post #edleadership
“I asked myself why I was the one doing all the work when the students were here to learn. After that, I have completely shifted to student-centered everything. If I talk for more than 10 minutes, it’s too much.” —Teacher Adrianne Moe https://edut.to/2ULQmGI
10 minutes before students do something with what was presented in those 10 minutes is critical. I’ve learned that the younger the student, the less talking a teacher should do before transferring the cognitive load over to them - Ts-focused vs Ss-centered learning.
💻 What can K-2 students do on a Chromebook? @TechCoachSusan shares loads of ideas and resources in "K-2 Can Chromebook TOO!" https://primarilygoogle.blogspot.com/2019/04/k-2-can-chromebook-too.html … #edtech #GSuiteEDU #GoogleEDU #K2CanToo #TOSAchat #ETCoaches
Great ideas for using Chromebooks in Kdg & 1st! #r2littles
Was asked today by a friend about my rationale for FULL CREDIT on a retake. I said... well, what is the PURPOSE of your assessment? To see what they learned or to collect points? If you average or give less than what they earned which are you doing?
If I come up to you at a party and say: Hi I'm Steve. I'm from Minnesota. Here's a picture of my family. I have two kids and am married. I love to play guitar. I love to travel. You're gone. How we engage people in a conversation is how we engage them to start a presentation.
This makes so much sense! Always begin with something that emotionally engages your audience! Thank you for this reminder!!
#gifted learners cannot grow in a classroom where they are consistently listening to something that they already know, tutoring their peers, or running errands because they already know the material. Challenge them, engage them, and give them real reasons to invest! #gtchat
Breaks my heart when a teacher shares that they were scored down on their evaluation because they gave students choice in their learning. Teachers and administrators MUST be on the same page for instructional growth to occur. #coachingredefined @RigorRelevance
I hear this way too often. When teachers participate in PD that introduces varied instructional approaches to support student growth and “buy-in”, administrators need to also be in that PD. This sends a message of “we are in this together”.
It’s SO exciting to see kindergarteners engaged in learning. At the same time, It’s SO disappointing to see too many 3rd and 4th graders doing the EXACT same task. We must include vertical team PLCs in our formulas in increasing student achievement and growth.
