Session 3 january 18 2013 learning communities and unit plan ii and iii

Dr. Howard Gardner

MDR

The theory of Multiple intelligences is based on research by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University.

Multiple Intelligences are different ways of demonstrating intellectual ability.


Multiple intelligences

Multiple Intelligences

  • Verbal linguistic

  • Logical mathematical

  • Visual spatial

  • Musical

  • Bodily kinesthetic

  • Naturalist

  • Interpersonal

  • Intrapersonal


Unit planning

Unit Planning

  • Teamers: Three lessons each for a total of six (change at the team level)– the teaming unit planning process is now standardized

  • Main resources: are only that. Start with the GLCEs if you can manage it (this is the missing link from the hospital unit), because (shh!) lots of curriculum materials aren’t very good (especially assessments).

  • Issues from yesterday: how much integration is enough? As powerful and authentic as you can make a case for is enough for me.

  • Questions, problems, conundrums?


The tomlinson

The Tomlinson

  • Differences and similarities between what Beane called integration and Tomlinson calls differentiation?

  • Agreement and/or disagreement with what Tomlinson has to say?

  • What’s assessment got to do with it?

  • “making room”


Media policy moment

Media/Policy Moment

  • City Pulse cover story from this week

  • Whom does this article assume you, the reader, are?

  • In your opinion, what is this article trying to do?

  • Do you find any unexamined assumptions in this article?

  • Who is given voice and not given voice in this article?


Break

Break

  • And “international schools” chat!


Exceptionalities fact sheet

Exceptionalities Fact Sheet

  • Here is the basic idea

  • Resources: class readings (general, and to be discussed in more detail next week)

    • You will also need to find some specific info on your own

  • Please get that table on the wiki filled in as soon as you can!


What is geography

What is Geography?

  • Integrative discipline that brings together the physical and human dimensions of the world in the study of people, places and environments

  • More than arcane facts; it’s putting the facts together, combined with perspective


Brophy alleman

Brophy & Alleman

  • Great riff on what geography is and how gloriously interdisciplinary it can be

  • Great riff on typical problems with geography texts and geography teaching

  • Kids’ developmental thinking about geography


How does teaching for geography contribute to citizenship

How does teaching for geography contribute to citizenship?

  • Civic Efficacy

    • understanding of cultural differences of places can help people overcome ego, ethnocentrism and geocentrism and act in ways that are respectful of differences

    • understanding of the fragile balance of humans and environment will lead to responsible actions toward the environment

    • knowledge of place and environment helps citizens make informed political decisions


Five fundamental themes of geography

Five Fundamental Themes of Geography

  • MR.HELP (mnemonic device)

    • Movement

    • Region

    • Human/Environment Interaction

    • Location (absolute and relative)

    • Place (physical and human characteristics)
