Guided Reading in a 3rd Grade Classroom
: Small group instruction and guided reading are critical components of the reading block. Guided reading, as defined by Fountas and Pinnell, is a teaching approach designed to help individual students learn how to process a variety of increasingly challenging texts with understanding and fluency. Small groups are made up of students with similar instructional reading levels and learning needs. Through guided reading, students learn how to develop and use strategies to construct meaning from text. Teachers pull small groups for guided reading while other students are engaged in Daily 5 activities or other valuable literacy work. Small group guided reading lessons should be carefully planned in advance of the lesson. In this video, the teacher will work with a small group of 3rd grade students.

Think of it as a shorthand, of sorts. As opposed to having to do something over and over again, algebra gives you a simple way to express that repetitive process. It's also seen as a "gatekeeper" subject. Once you achieve an understanding of algebra, the higher-level math subjects become accessible to you. Without it, it's impossible to move forward. It's used by people with lots of different jobs, like carpentry, engineering, and fashion design. In these tutorials, we'll cover a lot of ground. Some of the topics include linear equations, linear inequalities, linear functions, systems of equations, factoring expressions, quadratic expressions, exponents, functions, and ratios.

New study shows technology improves grammar teaching
Hand-held technology can help to improve primary pupils' learning of grammar, according to a new study by the Institute for Effective Education (IEE) at the University of York. www.learningclip.co.uk Researchers at the IEE conducted a large randomised evaluation in more than 40 primary schools of the use of Questions for Learning (QfL), a technology-enhanced, self-paced learning tool. It was found to enhance grammar achievement and was particularly effective for average- and low-achieving pupils. If these results held over a school year, these pupils would make between three and four months of additional progress. In QfL each pupil responds to progressively more difficult questions that are presented on Promethean ActivExpression wireless hand-held devices at the rate that the pupil answers them. This allows both more advanced and weaker pupils to answer in a private way at a pace appropriate to them. Pupils receive immediate feedback on their hand-sets on whether or not their answers are correct while the teacher sees a developing chart on his or her computer screen, showing how each pupil is performing. The teacher can then intervene immediately to support struggling pupils and identify which aspects of the curriculum require revisiting or re-teaching. Researchers evaluated the effectiveness of short exposure to QfL on learning of grammatical concepts. The evaluation took place over 12 weeks from January to May 2012. One Year 5 class from each of 42 primary schools in nine local authorities in the north of England and North Wales participated in the study. Schools were randomly assigned to either use QfL or to continue with their regular grammar teaching. Principal researcher Dr Mary Sheard, from the IEE, said: "We found that pupils in classes who used QfL showed significant gains in grammar compared with pupils in the control group. This improvement was greater in schools that used QfL at least three days each week, as prescribed, and for low- and average-achieving students." At the conclusion of the study, 100 per cent of teachers said they would recommend the strategy to peers and 96 per cent would like to use the resources in other curriculum areas. Overall student engagement increased according to 93 per cent of the QfL teachers. One teacher commented: "It's a great way of teaching grammar -- fun and child friendly. It allows me to see the areas of grammar children are finding tricky so I can revisit them." QfL was well-received by pupils too. "It helps with giving you a boost, with things that you just can't quite understand. They give you chances to get your answer right. It is the best grammar gadget ever," said one pupil. The findings of this study correspond with the Sutton Trust-EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit's high rating of feedback as an effective teaching strategy. It also builds on a previous IEE study of QfL in primary mathematics, which also found significant improvements in pupils' mathematics achievement. Dr Sheard added: "This study provides important insights into how to enable this pioneering area of technology-enhanced teaching and learning to become increasingly effective in supporting pupils' achievement in grammar." The complete report of the study can be found online www.york.ac.uk/iee/index.htm

BSCS 5E Instructional Model
The BSCS 5E Instructional Model has its origins with the work of earlier science educators, in particular the Karplus and Thier learning cycle developed for the Science Curriculum Improvement Study (SCIS). The findings reported in the National Research Council research summary How People Learn supports the design and sequence of the BSCS 5E Instructional Model. Since the late 1980s, BSCS has used the 5E Instructional Model extensively in the development of new curriculum materials and professional development experiences. The BSCS 5E Instructional Model also enjoys widespread use beyond BSCS: at least three states strongly endorse using the BSCS 5E Instructional Model, and a Google search shows ubiquitous use of the model for curriculum frameworks, assessment guidelines, or course outlines; curriculum materials; and teacher professional development.

Ramona Jennex Presents New Educational Plan for 2012
The province's new P-12 education plan will put students first by better preparing them for post-secondary education, good jobs, and active citizenship. The Kids and Learning First plan, released today, Feb. 3, by Education Minister Ramona Jennex, includes 39 actions focused on putting students first, effective teaching and linking the school and community. "Parents want the very best for their children, including an education that's as good as anywhere in the country," said Ms. Jennex. "While the school system has strengths to celebrate, provincial assessments are showing no significant improvement in math and reading, and in some cases students are losing ground. We are also dealing with a school system that has 30,000 fewer students than it did 10 years ago. "Kids and Learning First is about doing things differently and improving results by focusing on students' needs." The multi-year plan invests $6.7 million to: -- bring more services for kids and families into schools in every county -- begin a Discovering Opportunities program for struggling Grade 9 students -- introduce a manufacturing trades course linked to shipbuilding -- double the number of schools offering skilled trades courses -- triple the number of students taking courses through virtual school and double the number of its courses -- expand career development support, including more career coaching workshops for parents -- introduce a new grants program to allow more community groups to use schools for physical, cultural and education activities Kids and Learning First is also about helping students better prepare for a career path that is right for them. "Having the opportunity to be in skilled trades has been really beneficial for me because it gave me a chance to learn in a very hands-on way," said Cora Finanders, a skilled trades student. "What I've learned in the classroom has helped me decide if the trades are something I want to pursue. "I think it's great that more students will get the opportunity to try this course and see if it's right for them." Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) president Don Bureaux also welcomed the new education plan, saying it will help prepare students for the workforce. "The earlier prospective students can begin exploring and matching their own skills, experience, knowledge and interests to career pathways, the more prepared our workforce will be to capitalize on what's before us as a province," he said. Students will also get more help earlier in critical subjects and transition years. A new math curriculum will be implemented and Succeeding in Reading will be available in more grades. The province will work with teachers and other interested groups, including the teachers' union, to develop standards for quality teaching and to better match teaching background to subjects. For example, the most recent data shows that only 37 per cent of junior high math teachers had an academic background directly related to math. Kids and Learning First opens a discussion with families, school boards and educators about the amount and use of time for learning. Statistics Canada reports that some Nova Scotia students receive less instructional time than students in most other provinces. Many schools and boards teach more than the minimum hours. The plan calls for a review to determine what level of instructional hours in key areas like math in literacy lead to the best results. The plan also launches a review of high school courses to help determine the essential skills and knowledge today's graduates need. Currently, more than 150 courses are offered with 18 required for graduation. Students will soon be able to earn a personal development credit in the community through organizations such as the Cadets, 4-H, Junior Achievement and Nova Scotia Dance. "Our vision is for every student to become well-educated, confident, responsible adults prepared to create and work in good jobs — to be ready to build lives and families of their own," said Ms. Jennex. The plan is the province's response to Steps to Effective and Sustainable Public Education in Nova Scotia, a report by Ben Levin, a professor and Canada research chair on educational leadership at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. "I want to thank the many Nova Scotians who took the time to provide their views and thoughts on the future of education," said Ms. Jennex. "I look forward to working with teachers, parents, students, school boards, unions, communities, and all partners to put Kids and Learning First into action."
