In this six-page (tri-fold) laminated guide, Dr. Angel Barrett provides a range of evidence-based Tier 1 and Tier 2 Response To Intervention (RTI) strategies that are targeted to address the educational needs of students who are socio-economically disadvantaged. It identifies the greatest challenges these student face, which include · Lack of prior background knowledge and experience · Language deficits, especially in vocabulary and linguistic patterns · Lack of prior success in school Specific strategies are provided for overcoming each of these challenges and for improving access to the core curriculum. These include backwards lesson planning, pre-teaching, modeling strategies and reasoning aloud, guiding questions, choral reading, and sentence frames. The guide addresses the impact of the Common Core State Standards on students who are socio-economically disadvantaged, including the likelihood that scaffolding will be needed to narrow the proficiency gap, especially in English Language Arts (ELA). It includes an at-risk flowchart that identifies when and how to provide supports to help students with ELA skills such as reading fluency and comprehension and mathematics skills such as computation and problem-solving. Interventions specifically targeting language development in English Language Learners are included as well. Dr. Barrett draws from her extensive experience working with socio-economically disadvantaged youth as a teacher and principal to offers tips for creating a college and career-ready environment and involving parents.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) require students to engage higher level thinking skills and language use to activate their understanding of content/text. They are designed to be academically rigorous for all students, and are especially so for students who are English language learners (ELL). In ELLs: Thinking Skills and CCSS, Dr. Estee Lopez provides evidence-based instructional approaches as well as best practices for helping ELLs meet the CCSS for ELA. The six-page (tri-fold) guide is structured around the six shifts embodied in the CCSS for English Language Arts: 1. Increasing reading of informational text/balancing informational and literary texts 2. Knowledge in the disciplines 3. Staircase of complexity 4. Text-based answers 5. Writing from sources 6. Academic language The guide explains each shift, its implications for ELLs, and what is required of teachers. For each shift, the author lists best practices, examples of scaffolding for ELLs, and things that teachers and administrators must to do create conditions that ensure that ELLs succeed.

Wer bin ich, wenn ich online bin...

und was macht mein Gehirn solange? - Wie das Internet unser Denken verändert

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.
