When Students Become Teachers - Rigor, Assessment & Accountability - Dr. Lodge McCammon
http://lodgemccammon.com It’s another great day at Lockhart Elementary School in Wake County North Carolina. Students in Mrs. Hunt’s 3rd grade classroom are excited and ready to continue their innovative work that is redefining rigor, assessment, & accountability. In this class, after learning each math lesson, students are challenged to re-teach & record what they learned, adding their own spin on the information. Once the students have completed a standards-based lesson, for example about multiplication, they are directed to go to the back of the room to gather one white board and a dry erase marker. They return to their desks and begin creating their lessons by adding handwritten information to the boards . Since students will be re-teaching the information, they are thoughtful about how much to put on the board, what vocabulary to use and what examples they need to include to best illustrate the content. While the students are working, the teacher sets up a tripod and whiteboard stand in the hallway, right outside the door….and simply uses her cell phone to record these “1-take lecture videos.” When a student has completed his or her board, and is ready to teach their lesson, they step into the hallway, place the board on the stand and press record on the cell phone. They, sit down and teach the lesson, referencing the information they included on their board, and when they are done then they simply press stop. Their 1-take lecture video is complete...then the next student sets up and prepares to teach their version. This process continues until all the students have had a chance to record. Then the teacher takes the cell phone and plugs it into the computer so the videos can be reviewed and uploaded to a playlist. Mrs. Hunt pulls up a few examples that are reviewed by the whole class...and then explains to the students how she wants them to use a rubric to independently evaluate their work and the work of their peers. The students are assigned to watch a few videos, including their own. The rubric requires that they look closely at what is good about the lesson, but also how each could be improved….they look for content-related issues such as correct use of vocabulary and use of appropriate examples. In addition, they are required to evaluate how well the information is communicated...looking for quality of the speaking voice and overall confidence of the presentation. [interview] Teaching is the most rigorous form of learning, and in Mrs. Hunt’s classroom at Lockhart Elementary, the students ARE also the teachers. This practice is helping to redefine assessment - not only is the teacher evaluating the students, the students are regularly evaluating themselves and each other. This practice is also redefining accountability. Do you want to know if Mrs. Hunt’s 3rd graders have learned about multiplication? If so, all you need to do is go their playlist and watch each student teach their version of that standard. This transparent classroom provides us a glimpse into the future of teaching and learning.

Vocabulary Lesson from a North Carolina High School.

Wilson St, Farmville, NC 27828 Phone # (252) 753-5138. DO NOT JUST SIT BACK AND ALLOW THIS!!! They need to bring our Savior and God back into our Schools, and teach them about them. Without them we will fall.And fail. Please check this website out also, http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/12/north-carolina-public-high-school-proselytizing-for-islam-in-vocabulary-lessons/comment-page-1#comment-1164831 “We discovered that the vocabulary lesson was taken directly from a state-adopted supplemental workbook published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston.” This kind of thing is happening all over the country — partly because national textbook companies are promoting this proselytizing material. When questioned about it, school officials say it comes from the state, and that they can’t do anything about it. But more and more parents are catching on now, and this clandestine proselytizing is being exposed. The video, created by Dianne Lynn Savage, asserts that the plan is a vocabulary lesson for the eastern North Carolina high school. In it, Savage urges the audience to share the video as widely as possible and to not ‘just sit back and allow this’. "LET FREEDOM RING" God Bless everyone.

Pioneering Blended-Learning Teachers Reach More Students
Scott Nolt and Caitlyn Gironda pioneered blended-learning classes in their North Carolina district, extending their reach to more students by teaching two groups of students during the same class period—when one group was in class with the teacher, the other worked online from home or in a lab, switching the next day. Despite receiving less in-class time with their teachers, students showed strong student growth, and learned other crucial skills, including independent learning and time management. Gironda and Nolt reached 40 to 100 percent more students per class period, with class sizes the same or smaller. Hear them explain how they structured their classes, learned from mistakes and made changes along the way, plus offer advice for other teachers.

Cursive Comeback At NC Schools?
Little Vivian Whiteley says cursive can be fun. Yes, it's kind of is, very entertaining. It's already a daily routine in Katie Shellogg's third grade class at Hall Fletcher Elementary. She says cursive is still relevant in our technology-driven world. There are so many times when i have my computer, phone and Ipad around me but I still just want a good old pencil and paper to make a note, said Shellogg. The Back To Basics bill introduced in the state house would insure that cursive is part of the curriculum in all North Carolina schools. Shellogg says high tech and low tech can coexist, and that students need a well-balanced education. I think it's good to make sure that they're able to do a balance of both.

Rosslyn Waddell from Barnes Elementary, Wilson County, Discussing Schoolnet
Third grade teacher Rosslyn Waddell from BO Barnes Elementary School in Wilson County describes how she uses the instructional materials in Schoolnet. Ms. Waddell frequently uses the materials in the IIS for initial whole group instruction and review and remediation. She uses pre and post assessment data to identify the standards and skills that require the most attention and uses this knowledge to search for the materials that will most effectively meet the needs of her students. Lesson plans and activities are the materials that she uses the most often, and she reports that she finds the search process simple and intuitive. In addition, she has found that searching for instructional materials in Schoolnet saves her time and effort, since she knows that they have been vetted and are linked to the standards she is targeting.

Transforming a district through global education
In partnership with Participate, Edgecombe County Public Schools is transforming itself through teacher professional development and global education initiatives. John Farrelly: Edgecombe County is made up of 14 schools. We’re in rural northeastern North Carolina. We have many challenges. We're a tier one County; 80% of our students come from poverty. From a historical standpoint we have several schools that have struggled with student achievement levels for several years. Part of my mission as superintendent is to transform, not only the lowest performing schools, but also to bring innovation so that students get a more well-rounded experience. The community embraced the concept of global education because we were able to say things have got to change in the district. We're not where we want to be in preparing your child to be college and career-ready and we feel like if we can open up avenues for children and learning experiences and instructional delivery they will be better prepared going out to the world. We wanted to have a district-wide initiative. We purchased professional development as a comprehensive platform for all of our schools. Erin Swanson: I think our teachers need that support; I think they need those resources to build their own repertoire of global lessons and projects and ideas so that they can pass those along to their students. So I think the professional development piece is absolutely critical. We wanted to give our children here in Edgecombe County a really unique learning opportunity. We wanted to be sure that it was very rigorous, we wanted to be sure that they were developing strong critical thinking skills, we wanted them to be able to meet and interact with people from all around the world to learn about their cultures, their communities, and really to become global citizens. Jacey MacDonald: One of the biggest things that I have seen is an increase in student engagement. We've kind of shifted into an inquiry based lesson plan format and I have seen with that huge improvement in time on tasks and students are not just complying, they're excelling and they are really investing themselves in the work that we're doing. Jennifer Craddock: Because we know that we can go there, we can find the lesson plans, we can find the PD, we can reach out. Erin Swanson: We've seen some tremendous lessons and projects come out of that work. Our teachers have really collaborated to create some excellent learning opportunities for our students and I think that that professional development has been a tremendous part of that. John Farrelly: My advice for district leaders who are considering global education programs is you need to go for it. You will see that the data proves out that student achievement is growing in districts who are implementing these programs. The biggest surprise has really been how much the community has jumped in to supporting this. You can see it in the eyes of people. We have truly restored confidence in public education through implementing global education programs in Edgecombe County.

The Teacher Interview: Sample Questions & Answers
While a little long, this video offers eight questions commonly asked in the teacher interview, and how I would answer those questions. All of these are questions that I have been asked repeatedly in teacher interviews. While I did edit the video a bit, I can assure you it was to edit out the two year old calling for me in the background! :) My best advice for the teacher interview is to practice, practice, practice your answers to the common questions. The more confident you feel in the interview experience, the better you will feel and do. I have interviewed for SO MANY positions. I did not get hired for all of them, but I did learn a lot along the way. One summer I applied to over 52 positions. Yikes! When I started applying, I was sometimes up against 200 or more people for one position, and interviewing against 20 or more (if I got a call back to interview!). Good luck! AND Please let me know if there are more questions you have about the interview experience! As promised, here is that list of common interview questions that I have personally been asked at one time or another: a. Tell us about yourself b. What is your philosophy of teaching c. How do you use formative assessments to inform your teaching? d. What process do you use to lesson plan? e. How do you differentiate for students who are higher or lower? f. How do you differentiate for English Language Learners? g. What is your experience with the IEP and 504 process? h. What experience do you have collaborating with other teachers? i. Tell about a time when something went wrong in a lesson, what did you do? j. What is your favorite part of teaching? k. What do you do outside of teaching? l. How do you stay current in your field? m. What professional development experience do you have? n. How do you have a cycle of inquiry in your classroom? o. What approaches do you use to teach reading? p. What are your strengths/weaknesses as a teacher? q. How do you make accommodations for students who need it? r. What do you know about the RTI system? What experience do you have with it? s. What approaches do you use for classroom management? t. Describe a typical class period. u. What would a student of yours say about you as a teacher? v. What would a colleague say about you? w. What clubs or activities are you interested in participating in? x. Are you interested in coaching? If so, what? y. How do you integrate technology in your classroom? z. Describe a type when technology failed during a lesson, what did you do? aa. How do you increase communication between home and school? bb. Do you have any questions? i. This question seems so silly, but you need to ask at least one or two questions. ii. The purpose is to show them that you have researched the school a bit, and that you are interested. 1. Your school has a high population of English learners. What professional development do you offer teachers to support them in the classroom? 2. What is your parent involvement like?

"It doesn't really matter what the state is doing when I'm here in my classroom with my students that's the reality," Gombos said. Gombos' feelings are echoed by others at East Cary Middle, including Director of Bands Chris Branam. "Don't worry about what's happening politically. Remember to keep your focus on the children; keep your focus on what you love and doing with your life because when you go to work every day, you want to enjoy what you do," Branam said. Some believe what's happening in the state has impacted what's happening in classrooms. "North Carolina has failed to reinvest in its schools," said Jim Merrill, Wake County Public Schools superintendent. "If you fail to invest in your employees they leave." Six hundred teachers quit last year school. "Now we're having to leave, just to make ends meet," said Britt Morton, a departing Apex High School teacher In 2013, 13 percent of North Carolina teachers left their jobs. That's 12 percent more than in 2012. "We are finding that more and more students coming out of high school are choosing not to enter teaching as a profession," said Tim Markley, superintendent of New Hanover County Schools. And for teachers leaving their jobs, it's been a hard decision to make. "It's who I am. And to have to make the decision to leave that for financial reasons was devastating," said Kelly Nystrom, a departing Underwood Elementary teacher. School districts in other states see the pay issues in North Carolina as an opportunity to recruit teachers. The Houston Independent School District in Texas held a job fair in Raleigh on May 31, where they made 12 offers to local teachers. But Gombos is not planning on going anywhere. "I don't have any desire to leave education I've done other things and this is my first best destiny," Gombos said. Like any good teacher, Gombos sees a lesson in the struggles facing teachers and education in our state. "You have to have a little bit of patience and a lot of hope and positivity, but we've been in bad places for education before and we've come through it and say now we can see where we're going," Gombos added.

The election of 1876 made the whole thing even more of a mess, and the country called it off, leaving the nation still very divided. John will talk about the gains made by African-Americans in the years after the Civil War, and how they lost those gains almost immediately when Reconstruction stopped. You'll learn about the Freedman's Bureau, the 14th and 15th amendments, and the disastrous election of 1876. John will explore the goals of Reconstruction, the successes and ultimate failure, and why his alma mater Kenyon College is better than Raoul's alma mater NYU.
