As regular readers know, I’ve been doing the Classroom Q&A column over at Education Week for thirteen years.
And I plan to continue doing it for quite a few more years.
I have so many contributors now, though, that there really isn’t space there for my annual thematic compilation posts, where I collect links to all the posts on particular topics.
So, I’m starting to do it here instead, and this is the ninth one.
Today’s theme is on Differentiated Instruction:
Examples from two educators include giving students the time to take physical breaks as well as pausing academic presentations to give students time to think.
I offer seven suggestions on how to help English-learners when doing remote teaching, including by providing graphic organizers and models.
This four-part series on “fair” versus “equal” is being “wrapped up” today with answers from Rick Wormeli, Pedro A. Noguera, Ph.D., Elizabeth Stringer Keefe, Ph.D., and Dr. Sheila Wilson.
Dr. Debbie Silver, Gloria Brown Brooks, Tasha Moyer, Barbara Blackburn, and LaChawn Smith discuss if “fair” means “equal” in the realm of education.
Today’s commentaries on the difference between treating students “equally” and “fairly” come from Kelly Capatosto, Gina Laura Gullo, Cheryl Staats, Dr. PJ Caposey, Ashley McCall, Orion Nolan, Jen Schwanke, Marisa Nathan, Carol Bruzzano, Keisha Rembert, and Tatiana Esteban.
Dr. Julia Stearns Cloat, Dr. Rocio del Castillo, Holly Spinelli, Sabrina Hope King, Joe Feldman, and Dr. Felicia Darling discuss the difference between treating students “fairly” and “equally.”
