#CyberPD: Being the Change


To read.

Surface Learning

To absorb and think about applying.

Deep Learning

To really consider the impact of my own words and the power of my actions, thoughts, and words.

Transfer Learning

We have a phrase in Iowa. It’s “Iowa Nice.”  When are we “too nice” and when do we need to stop and consider the impact of our words?  When do we need to step out of our comfort zone?  Some issues seem easier to advocate for?  Is that my background?  Or just my comfort level?

I wrote about this book just two short months ago before the #G2Great chat with author Sara Ahmed.  It feels like more than two months.   So many changes . . . locally, nationally, and internationally.

I’m rereading it now for #cyberPD . . . just one of several book clubs that I am currently in.  As I thought about “What” to write, it dawned on me.

I read it.

But I didn’t really think it was “about me”.

Being the Change!

I acknowledged my background

And checked it off my list.


Back to the drawing board.

Rereading.

Digging deeper.

Not just doing.

But thinking.

And reading.

And writing.

And determining what actions I need to take.

How will others know this is important to me?

What does it mean to “see the humanity”  and to “activate your empathy”? 

How do I remove the “us” and “them” from my vocabulary?

Paying lip service is not good enough. 

Nodding my head is not good enough. 

I must do better. It requires change.

Mea Culpa!

#NCTE14: The Learning Continues . . .


Time to stop and think . . . reflect . . . and wonder.

 

Friday Session C.13  What the Common Core Forgot: Community, Collaboration, and Social Justice

How much time is spent on the routines in middle schools and high schools to build collaboration? And what about the subtitle:  “Step-by-Step Lessons for Respect, Responsibility and Results!”

Teaching the Social Skills

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We practiced “eye to eye, knee to knee, and sitting closely” so that we could have interaction!

Identity Webs

“Who am I?”

“How do I see Myself?”

This information comes from Harvey Daniels and Sara Ahmed’s new book.

After viewing Sara’s web, I had some questions . . .

Where and how is Sara Ahmed connected to Iowa?

And what sports?

And exactly what team/location?

(Lots of sports choices in Iowa)

Check out Sara’s identity map!

What questions do you have?
