Yesterday was back to school day for teachers at Lutheran High School, where I work. It was a full day of worship to begin the year, visioning for the future, and first aid training.
As a result, I did not get a post out. So this morning, before I head back to school, here is today’s links list of education resources:
- Peergrade — this is an online platform designed to facilitate peer feedback. I have not taken a dive into this product yet, but it does look intriguing, especially since feedback and reflection are activities that I constantly wish to improve in my classroom.
- 7 Must Have Student-Collaboration Apps, Tools, and Resources — there are a couple tools of which I was not aware on this list.
- Three Lessons for Teachers from Grant Wiggins — a two-year-old post that is just as applicable today as it was when Wiggins passed away two years ago.
- Power Given and Withheld — from the Thinking About Leadership blog.
- Why America’s obsession with STEM education is dangerous — food for thought. The author argues that a broad-based liberal arts education that emphasizes critical thinking is more important than ever.
- “Black People Don’t Fly” — School Convinces Families to Try a Personalized Study-Abroad Charter — an interesting school model to follow.
