Curious about the level of engagement of your students in your class?
This infographic will help you to understand about the engagement levels of your students. It is inevitable for teachers to know the engagement levels of their students so that they will be able to recognize and understand the status of their classroom, whether or not it is the highly engaged, well-managed or pathological classrooms. Having that in mind, the teachers can do something to improve the status of the classroom if it needs remedial actions before it becomes worst.

Very informative. I like that it shows there is no such thing as “perfect.”

Whoa - I never reblog, but this is incredibly useful. I’d like to map out my classes with this.

Reblogging to look at this more later!

think I’ve reblogged before, but so useful.

5 Better Ways to Say ‘I Don’t Know’ in the Classroom

Do you allow students to answer a question with the response “I don’t know” in the classroom? Perhaps you should consider no longer allowing that phrase and instead offering up these five other ways that might get students thinking a bit more.

Book List of Book Lists

We make a lot of young adult book lists at STACKED, and I know how useful they are for collection development and reader’s advisory purposes. They’re useful enough for me when I write them or read the ones Kimberly’s written. So I thought I’d make a list of some of our book lists, for those who are interested in digging deep into the various genres and themes within YA fiction. 

I’ll add to this periodically as we update our book lists so that finding them all in one place is easy, useful, and convenient. 

Get Genrefied Series

All of these lists focus on specific genres or subgenres within YA fiction. They each talk about the defining characteristics of the genre (or format!), followed by a big book list, and other websites and blogs to explore that delve even further into the specified genre.

Other Thematic Book Lists

We’re fans of book lists, period, and we’ve made a number of thematic and trend-style book lists.

Helpful lists are helpful.

After I posted my thoughts on big book causality, I received this question in my ask box:

The Short Answer

My short answer to the question of whether or not I find it disingenuous to suggest that being male might have had some effect on John’s success is… no. Not even a little bit. Not at all.

The Long Answer

 My long answer is (as one might suspect from my the length of my last blog entry)…. long.

I’ve always said my theater minor was more helpful than some of my education classes.

"When we always focus on numbers, we have kids learning about things that they don’t care about, in hopes that they will get a certain “grade” to justify our work. The problem is we lose to many kids when we focus on them as a number, instead of just focusing on them. Data is important, but schools should always be “people-driven”. It is at the heart of what we do, and who we are."

This is a great collinktion (collection + links) if you’re interested in blended learning instruction. Especially helpful are how to start and what to model.
