My son's grade 6 teacher is leaning full tilt into the "embarrass you in front of the class for benign requests/mistakes" method of authoritarian .

I'm caught between wanting to call her out on it, vs, not wanting to make things worse for him since she seems like the retaliatory type. And there's only 1 month left in the school year.

Sigh.

@heiglandreas There will be a next year but a different teacher thank goodness!

@syntaxseed Our son went through teacher issues. In French school, his teacher(s) suspended him in grade 5 for being unruly. His friends knew they could wind him up, and he’d get in trouble as he was the most rambunctious. We switched schools for 6-7 and he thrived. Teachers embraced his character and made it work for all his classes. He went from sad to being the happiest kid in the world! Hope you both find a way to get through these last few days and have a teacher that “gets him” next year

Honestly, just be kind to your students and you're vastly more inclusive than 75% of other educators in higher ed.

open evening is on Monday evening.
We will be open from 19:30 until 22:00 to give folks who may be interested in what we do, and what facilities we can provide, a chance to come and have a look round and meet some of our members.
All are welcome. If you have ever wondered what we did to convert a derelict toilet into a hackspace, or what a "hackspace" is for that matter, come and have a look around.
If you like to create, make or craft things why not pay us a visit?
We have tools and equipment that cover a wide range of hobbies, crafts and technologies: woodwork, metalwork, electronics, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, sewing, 3D printing.....
Free tea, coffee and a biscuit or two.

Is it just me, or should a "Tutorial for Beginners" explain Why to do things, rather than just show How?

1 of my 6th graders shared this “SIFT-worthy” disinformation example today: “Is the London Eye Getting Dismantled and Moved to Scotland?
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/london-eye-moving-to-scotland/

I added it (with screenshots from archived web captures of the original post / photos) to my “More SIFT Lessons” curriculum page:

Traditional lectures suck, all the evidence points to it. It's not that there is no place for lectures, but the time spent in them needs to be drastically reduced.

"Games are the secret to learning math and statistics, says new research."

"This research backs up what we already know—that traditional lecturing is not the best approach for learning, even in numbers-based subjects like economics or statistics."

When I was in university (UCD) I took an upper division math course on solving physical puzzles and then writing their proofs.

Thinking and writing out the proofs was the best part for me. Trained me in ways nothing else could.

Question for teachers out there: If you're learning to teach a foreign language, what resources or material do you learn from? Does it differ if you're a native speaker teaching others to speak your language?

I am not looking for tools for me to learn languages. I am trying to understand the meta-education which goes into language teaching.

KFosterMarks,
@KFosterMarks@mastodon.social avatar

@trick Training to become a second/foreign language teacher requires you learn about language teaching pedagogy, second language acquisition, linguistics, and language assessment at a minimum. Many people who are serious about pursuing language teaching as a career path complete a Master's degree in preparation.

If you're looking for a basic introduction to language teaching, "How Languages are Learned" by Lightbown and Spada is an excellent entry point to the depth & complexity of this field.
