The Three-Step System For Getting Students to Do the Talking – A.J. JULIANI – Education Article

I remember the first time I heard the phrase “student-centered classroom” and I almost chuckled. I had always believed my classroom was about the students, they were the reason we taught and my focus was always on their learning. This new terminology sounded like another buzzword and I didn’t pay much attention to the presentation until I heard this: Whoever is doing the talking is doing the majority of the learning. In your classroom what is the ratio of…

Learning From Mistakes but Not Allowing it to Hold Yourself Back – The Principal of Change – Education Article

This article struck me on “self-compassion.” Here is a snippet: Many would jump to the conclusion that academic excellence is bolstered by self-esteem, which can certainly help. But there’s a dark side to focusing solely on helping your child boost his or her self-esteem (as you’ll see in a second). The better way forward? Focus on teaching your child self-compassion. Self-esteem is a judgment about how valuable I am: very valuable, not so good, not valuable at all. In contrast,…

Study English, and learn the ways of the world | Letters | Education

But are science graduates necessarily more employable than someone who has spent her degree years reading widely, analysing language, developing sound aesthetic judgment, defending her opinions in seminars, and learning how to express them in lucid, cogent and elegant prose in weekly essays? Many ex-pupils I…

As a school leader, you naturally want your school to achieve the best possible results year after year. Of course, achieving these results is far more easily said than done.
