    From Inspiration to Red Carpet: Host Your Own Student Film Festival

    From Inspiration to Red Carpet: Host Your Own Student Film Festival is the perfect resource for teachers looking to improve their students’ writing and digital literacy skills. The authors are technology integration specialists charged with helping teachers in their district make technology a fundamental part of learning and teaching. They took note of students’ interest in digital media outside of school and realised that video production was an excellent way to get students engaged and using technology in the classroom. To make video production a part of the district culture, they developed the Parkway School Digital Film Festival. This festival has since become a catalyst for innovation in the classroom. A film festival can do the same at your school or district!

  • Inside the Black Box: Science

    Inside the Black Box: Science

    Science provides the means by which learners can interact with the world around them and develop ideas about the phenomena they experience. To be able to learn science in this way, students need help in developing process skills to investigate, and communication skills to question and discuss findings. The specific aim of Inside the Black Box: Science is the improvement of science education, so ideas are put in the context of the aims and expectations of science teaching. The book sets out in detail the research findings on four main ways of practising formative assessment found to be both workable and productive with teachers of science, and it shows teachers how to develop formative work within a science faculty in a school.

    Working Inside the Black Box offers easy-to-read advice for teachers on how to implement the key techniques within formative assessment, such as questioning, feedback, and peer/self assessment.

The philosophy of the Black Box series is that formative assessment is considerably more than the sum of a series of handy tips and techniques; rather, it is about creating a learning culture within the classroom that enables the student to become an independent and effective learner.

    Engaging Teachers in Classroom Walkthroughs is a practical guide to the planning and implementation of brief but focused classroom observations that involve teachers in every step of the process. Dozens of examples show how schools – some using established walkthrough models and others designing their own versions – moved teachers from resistance to enthusiastic acceptance of the practice. This text demonstrates that when teachers learn from one another in a cycle if continuous professional growth – through observation, shared inquiry, dialogue and follow-up – they develop a sense of collegiality and common mission. By opening their doors to their peers, they also contribute to broader school improvement.

    The infusing of thinking into content delivery, the use of the language of thinking and the explicit teaching of thinking is becoming an ever-present feature of classroom practice.

It provides frameworks for ensuring that practices such as the explicit teaching of thinking becomes an enduring part of the culture of the school.
