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.
by Dianne Lynn Savage https://www.facebook.com/dianne.h.savage?fref=photo Vocabulary Lesson from a North Carolina High School...SHARE SHARE SHARE!!! Farmville Central High School, 3308 E. 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.

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.

North Carolina Leadership Academy | Workshop Overview | Dr. Lodge McCammon | #NCLA18
http://lodgemccammon.com Today I am in Raleigh, North Carolina facilitating a full day workshop for the North Carolina Leadership Academy, a program at NC State University focused on preparing educators to lead in high need schools. The goal of our workshop is to help prepare these future-ready leaders by modeling self-paced, efficient, and active methods of instruction that can be implemented in any classroom to enhance the learning experience for all students. These teaching strategies are all about minimizing the amount of time we are spending on content delivery & lecture so we can maximize time spent on challenging students to build collaboration and communication skills, while they create & reflect on artifacts of their learning. This can be accomplished by encouraging teachers to record & share 1-take videos that capture lesson & lecture content. Teacher-created video lectures are more effective for delivering content to students and can be 60-80% shorter than live lectures, freeing up a significant amount of class time. Throughout the day, a number of lessons are modeled so participants can experience the teaching method from the student perspective, while also having time to collaborate with their peers to discuss how the instructional strategies can be modified and used back in their schools and classrooms. The video lectures create an efficient learning environment so that much of the lesson time can be spent on getting students up and moving , activating the brain, while being fully engaged in the content. In addition, participants are challenged to collaborate and design a number of 1-take paperslide videos. This strategy allows them to rapidly create and publish artifacts of their learning - at the end of each lesson I ask each group to record a paperslide video in order to communicate their perspective or simply teach the information back to me. This is a powerful strategy for engaging students in any classroom. We also have a chance to hear from Dr. Brandy Parker, vice president of research strategy at Wells Fargo. She shares her experience with using these same strategies to increase efficiency and enhance communication in the workplace. She answers questions and discusses the importance of having student develop collaboration and communication skills. The instructional strategies modeled and discussed today can be used by any educator tomorrow to create self-paced, efficient, and active learning environments that meet the needs of all students.

13 Colonies: Comparing Regions  New England, Middle, and Southern
This PowerPoint, with activities, and lesson plans are available @: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-And-Social-Studies-Academy This lesson teaches how the three regions of the 13 Colonies differed from one another: New England, the Middle Colonies, and the Southern Colonies. Students will learn how the climate and geography of the three colonial regions impacted the economic as well as the social lives of colonists in the three regions of the 13 Colonies. Students will learn how the New England colonists had to look to different types of revenue as farming in these colonies, due to cold weather and bad soil, was meager. Students will be introduced to the way New Englanders turned to lumber, ship building and shipping, fishing, whaling and trading the center of their economic lives. Students will also learn how life was more centered around towns and strict religious practices. Next we provide an examination of the Middle Colonies, and their more diverse economic, ethnic, and religious diversity. Students will learn how this region, the “Breadbasket” of the colonies combined much more agriculture into their economy, with their mix of manufacturing, shipping, and trading. We look at the different religions of practiced in this regions and the different ethnic backgrounds of the settlers. Finally, students will learn how agriculture, especially the production of cash crops, impacted the social and economic lives of the Southern colonies. Students will learn how this region, which enjoyed more religious toleration, was spread out impacting the social, political and economic lives of the Southern Colonies. Student will be introduced to how slavery began to take hold in this region. Our lesson concludes with a look at some similarities between the lives of the average colonist in comparison to their European counterpart. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics and Social Studies Academy’s lessons, this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans, worksheets, smartboard files and activities, are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. As a social studies teacher, I have often looked for good YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens.

Reconstruction and 1876: Crash Course US History #22
In which John Green teaches you about Reconstruction. After the divisive, destructive Civil War, Abraham Lincoln had a plan to reconcile the country and make it whole again. Then he got shot, Andrew Johnson took over, and the disagreements between Johnson and Congress ensured that Reconstruction would fail. 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.

Teacher suspended after stomping on American flag during First Amendment lesson
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The students in teacher Lee Francis’ history class will probably never forget the lesson he taught on free speech. Just not in the way he probably expected. Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina, was giving a lesson Monday on the First Amendment. His method? First, he tried to burn the American flag. Then he tried to cut it. Then he placed it on the floor and stepped on it. “I put the flag on the ground, and I took two steps with my right foot and I said, ‘This is an example of free speech,'” Francis told CNN affiliate WRAL. “Two students got up and left immediately with no word, no disruption at all … I assumed something had happened. One student came to where I was and took the flag from me.” Francis said he wasn’t trying to offend students, just teach them the Supreme Court ruled such acts of free expression were protected. Outrage and outcome A picture of Francis standing on the flag was shared widely. In a community closely aligned with nearby Fort Bragg, outraged parents now want him fired. He's been suspended pending an investigation. Francis will meet with Frank Till Jr., superintendent of Cumberland County Schools, about his job later this week. In a statement, Till said, "Clearly there are other ways to teach First Amendment rights without desecrating a flag." Francis, who says he has relatives in the military, agrees with him. "I think he's right, absolutely there could be other ways to teach the subject. But in the same vein the way that I taught, it can't necessarily be wrong," Francis told WRAL.

Intro: Music and text [Kathryn Hodskinson is a cultural exchange teacher from England who teaches third grade at Holt Elementary Language Academy in Durham, N.C. She is currently on her second tour as a teacher with Participate.] There’s nothing more challenging than moving to another country. New house, new car, new friends in the space of a few weeks. But when you’re in that classroom with those 18 little pairs of eyes looking at you, you realize why you’re doing it. I think that from the very first day working at Holt I think I’ve learned something new every single day. [Kathryn’s journey as an educator has taken her around the world.] So I got some experience in a Kenyan classroom in a very remote African village and that was just a life-changing experience. It was very very different. I think actually I figured out when I was over there that I was a global educator because I love teaching in different countries. And you can’t get more different than rural Kenya to city America. So the difference has just been amazing but you know, the core values of just being a teacher still stay the same no matter where you are. [Kathryn and her colleagues as Holt incorporate global content and concepts into all of their classroom instructions.] Initially it’s quite overwhelming… how do you make every single lesson global. But now it’s just become second nature. Everything that we do, how do we make that global, how do we make it link between Durham and Kenya. We use technology in the classroom everyday. We kind of take them on virtual trips as often as possible by linking them to video clips using Google Earth to actually taking them to those places virtually. The most important thing is the children being aware that there are other countries and other cultures around them and that they have access to them. There’s ways to connect with those other countries and learn from them. I think you know as a teacher if you are a global educator. I think if you always plan with real world problems in mind, if you’re always thinking about teaching the children about other countries and where they are in the world, then you are a global educator. So to actually have a place in a school that’s passionate about that, is kind of a dream come true really.

Bringing Play Back to Kindergarten Classrooms – Meet Steve Oates, 2016 Leader to Learn From
Steve Oates, a veteran teacher of 1st-graders, has been leading an initiative to bring play back to kindergarten classrooms in North Carolina’s Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school district. The effort to make the district’s early-learning environments more engaging for children and hence, more effective for their learning, is at the heart of Oates’ work overseeing 45 elementary schools and their principals in the 54,000-student school system. And the district’s pursuit of more play-based learning has taken place at a time when many districts and early-childhood centers have shifted to more structured, academic environments. Despite his heavy load of responsibilities, Oates logs lots of hours in the schools he oversees, meeting with principals and teachers and checking in personally to ensure that the blocks and dress-up clothes in kindergarten classrooms are in heavy use. “If I walk into 10 kinder[garten] classroom[s], and at least seven or eight of them [are focused on play], I could say, ‘We’re on the right track,’ ” Oates says of where he hopes to bring his district’s classrooms. This video was produced as part of Education Week’s Leaders to Learn From project, recognizing outstanding school district leaders from around the country.

Penland Community Collaboration Teaching Artist Initative
Penland's Community Collaboration program works closely with Mitchell County Public School teachers and principals to personalize student learning with artistic expression. The Teaching Artist in the Schools program deepens a student's connection with school curriculum through bookmaking. Each year, Penland's Teaching Artist, Meg Peterson, instructs on average 500 rurally-based 3rd, 4th, and 10th grade students in painting, folding, binding, illustrating, collaging, and writing in handmade books. The books support a specific unit of study and incorporate reflection and evaluation sessions that reinforce vital life lessons. Our goal is to craft powerful and creative learning experiences that support personal development. Art making deepens human experience cultivating connections among increasingly isolated facets of life and learning. This video is a compilation of third and fourth grade students and their teachers working throughout the 2011-2012 school year with Penland School of Crafts Teaching Artist, Ms. Meg Peterson Our programs are designed to promote the following experiences which we believe are embedded in the artistic practice: Guiding Artistic Practices in Our Work - Making meaningful connections - Establishing a community of discovery - Imagining and responding - Fostering wonder, joy and satisfaction - Encouraging sensory and emotional absorption - Taking purposeful risks - Practicing persistence and discipline - Learning new skills - Engaging in self-directed exploration http://penland.org/programs/community_education.html

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.

Using Art in the Social Studies Classroom, Part 1
The place of art in the Social Studies classroom has often been decorative or illustrative—to embellish a bulletin board or to demonstrate how a society looked. But social scientists like V. Gordon Childe have said that art is one of the components that separates a “civilization” from less developed cultural groups. Hence, artworks of all kinds offer a window into the societies and civilizations that Social Studies courses explore. This professional development opportunity for North Carolina Social Studies teachers will introduce and suggest innovative and engaging methods for bringing art into the classroom and to help students develop higher level analytical skills.

WNCN Education Town Hall | State of North Carolina's Teachers

"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.
