Focus on What Matters - 31 Dec 2018 03:09

Tags:

In any organization bureaucracy can take over one's mind, one's attention, and one's direction. This is not what should happen. Instead the mission and vision of the work should lead one forwardwhat does that mean for me heading into the second month of school?
<p><b>Teaching/Learning</b>
I will take the time to look over students' first unit of math study carefully
who achieved and who still needs more teaching and learning in this regard? After that analysis, I'll make plans about when and how I'll reteach and support students who missed some essential learning in that unit. I'll also head into the next unit with all students in ways that have been successful to students in the past. I'll also begin the teaching and learning related to physical science and STEAM study while embedding SEL lessons throughout the teaching and learning. To do that means taking care to thoughtfully plan our first multidisciplinary lesson related to our watershed studythis lesson will include both physical science, math standards.</p>
<p><b>System-Wide Decisions</b>
Our school system leadership will meet with us to discuss changing school start times. I will listen carefully to the proposals and my colleagues questions and ideas. It's important that school start times are ideal for all students not just some, and my research to date points to the fact that the most positive change will cost the system extra money and I will likely choose along the lines of what's best for all students with regard to the research about student health and optimal learning/living.</p>
<p><b>Professional Learning</b>
We have a systemwide professional learning event however we don't know what that will be or where it will be. I am a learner that likes to preview material and learning with good time, so I worry about learning that doesn't include good lead time or an introduction. However, I'll do as I'm asked to do
attend the learning event and cull what I can to develop my practice.</p>
<p><b>Student Service Meeting&nbsp;</b>
We had a very good nuts and bolts student service meeting last week. This week we'll likely go deeper to discuss practices we can embed to serve all students well. This is a positive weekly meeting.</p>
<p><b>ELA Data Meeting</b>
We'll dive into scores and more related to reading instruction this week and make groups for RTI reading instruction where we help students to build fluency and comprehension skills in meaningful ways. This practice has resulted in positive reading and writing growth over the years. It's a lot of work, but work that's worth it.</p>
<p><b>Student Teacher</b>
I'll continue to supervise the student teacher by reviewing the schedule of the week to come, helping her to plan, prepare, and teach lessons, and observing her work in action as she teaches a number of lessons this week. She's an excellent teacher so that's a joy.</p>
<p><b>Teaching in Nature</b>
As noted in the previous post many lessons will revolve around standards-based environmental education this week including multidisciplinary background lessons about watersheds and river habitats, an introduction to the history, geography, and biology of the local habitat, a fun and games study of facts related to the SUASCO watershed, a hands-on model making event, and a class hike and hands-on exploration in nature. This effort will take care and attention to multiple learning points and with dedication will result in an awesome first week of study with our Drumlin farm naturalist coach, students, family members, and educators.</p>
<p><b>Student Response</b>
In keeping with this year's goal, I'll collect this week's practice packet on Tuesday and review students' efforts Tuesday afternoon and evening. On Wednesday I'll review students' online work. I'll provide two mornings of extra help before school, and talk to students and contact families and educators with regard to students who are not keeping up with their practice to see how we might support those students more. My goal is to check in on all learners each week via these feedback loops to ensure that every child is having the opportunity for just-right practice and response on a weekly basis.</p>
<p>As you can see it will be a busy week ahead—one that demands I keep the focus. This is typically true for all educators wherever they teach. Onward. </p>

Why are Australian children's books suddenly so politic - 28 Dec 2018 03:18

Tags:

<p><span class="drop-cap &lt;span class=" drop-capinner="" l<="" pan=""></span>ike etiquette guides for society’s youngest members, children’s books have always had an educational aim. Reckless kids learn caution, selfish kids learn to share, the child who rages at her mother gets her comeuppance. But if children were once taught by books to follow the rules, increasingly, they are being encouraged to break them – or at least, to question them. So what has precipitated this upswell in activist literature for youngsters?</p>
<p>When I ask about the trend<strong> </strong>at the Younger Sun children’s bookshop in Melbourne, a bookseller pulls a dozen examples off the shelves including books about queer theory, feminism, Islam, multiculturalism and citizenship aimed at primary-aged children. Some of these titles are from the US and UK – such as Feminist Baby by Loryn Brantz, What Can A Citizen Do? by Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris and A is for Activist by Innosanto Nagara – but many titles are Australian. Diversity and representation is a key theme.</p>

<p>Three years later, Goodnight Stories For Rebel Girls, an American collection of stories about successful women, broke publishing history when it raised more than $600,000 with a crowdfunding campaign. “Goodnight Stories For Rebel Girls blew up a trend that was already gathering momentum,” Crocombe says. It spawned a sequel and a range of imitators, including Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different and the Australian book, Shout Out to the Girls.</p>
<p>Self-love in a diverse world is a noticeable trend in the range of new data-link-name=&quot;auto-linked-tag&quot; data-component=&quot;auto-linked-tag&quot; class=&quot;u-underline Australian books. “You’re brown, Belle!” says one child to another in Wide Big World, an exuberant book from author Maxine Beneba Clarke and illustrator Isobel Knowles in which kinder kids and their teacher discuss the ways in which they are different. I Love Me by Sally Morgan and Ambelin Kwaymullina features bright cartoons of Indigenous kids and encourages readers to be their own biggest fans. Meanwhile, Davina Bell and Allison Colpoys’ All the Ways to be Smart celebrates creativity and emotional intelligence.</p>
<p>“Australia has a strong tradition of social awareness in its children’s books,” Rosemary Johnston, professor of education and culture at Sydney’s University of Technology, says. Johnston says even Dot and the Kangaroo, published in 1899, urges the protection of native animals, and the 1918 May Gibbs classic Snugglepot and Cuddlepie<em> </em>warns against pulling flowers out by the roots. “The importance of the environment, respect for Indigenous people, racial and gender equality and multiculturalism have been themes in Australian children’s books for years. These themes come in waves, and perhaps we’re seeing a resurgence now.”</p>
<p>Gender stereotypes are gently rebuked in Love Makes a Family by Sophie Beer, which depicts a diverse range of families, including one with two dads, in moments of candid domesticity. In Want to Play Trucks by Ann Stott and Bob Graham, one boy wants to play with trucks, the other with dolls. Potential conflict is avoided when a compromise is found – the dolls drive trucks.</p>
<p>“Picture books are usually part of a shared reading experience, and allow families to negotiate group norms and navigate uncomfortable experiences,” says Leonie Rutherford, senior lecturer in writing and literature at Deakin University. “Children’s books reflect changes in political discourse and social concerns, and books about same-sex families and gay identities are more prevalent now.”</p>

<p>Intercultural friendship is also a theme in recent releases, such as My Muslim Mate by Amal Abou-Eid, and My Two Blankets by Irena Kobald and Freya Blackwood. In the latter, a migrant child finds Australian culture scary until she makes a new friend and starts learning English. Blankets are a metaphor for language and culture, and two blankets provide extra warmth. But sometimes the politics are more pointed: I’m Australian Too, by Mem Fox and Ronojoy Ghosh, uses rhyming verse to celebrate Australia’s multicultural heritage, but ends on a poignant and explicitly political note, with an illustration of a child in a refugee camp and the words: “Sadly, I’m a refugee / I’m not Australian yet / But if your country lets me in, I’d love to be a vet”.</p>
<p>With an election year approaching, and issues of race and gender being kicked around like a political hacky sack, it certainly seems like it might be a good time to snuggle up with a child and read together about an inclusive, diverse Australia.</p>
<p><strong>Wide Big World by Maxine Beneba Clarke, illustrated by Isobel Knowles
</strong>“You’re brown, Belle!” says one child to another, starting an exuberant book about the joys of diversity. With its crisp use of words and rhythm, this book is fun to read aloud.</p>
<p><strong>My Muslim Mate by Amal Abou-Eid
</strong>When they’re not busy riding their scooters, Charlie and Khaled chat about their similarities and differences. Simply illustrated, the book is a great starting point for kids to learn more about Islam.</p>
<p><strong>Love Makes A Family by Sophie Beer
</strong>“Love is baking a cake. Love is knowing where everything is.” This bright, bold book for toddlers depicts a diverse range of families in moments of candid domesticity.</p>
<p><strong>All the Ways to be Smart by Davina Bell, illustrated by Allison Colpoys
</strong>A celebration of creativity and emotional intelligence featuring a diverse cast of kids. A reassuring read for primary-aged children who feel like a round peg in a square, academic hole.</p> - Comments: 0

Yet Aster longs to learn spells and is not interested in the other boy's aggressive play. When several boys go missing, Aster tries to use his developing magical abilities to solve the mystery. I especially appreciated the way Aster questions society's gender expectations and stays true to himself. A delightful graphic novel — I'm looking forward to reading the sequel,
<b>The Hidden Witch</b>, which has just come out. (ages 8-12)

Student-Led Family-Teacher Conferences - 22 Dec 2018 03:13

Tags:

Students are invited to lead their fifth grade conferences.
<p>Guided by a showcase portfolio, students begin with the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and events that bring them happiness. Teachers tell parents that we want students to know what makes them happy, and we know that happy students are more successful students.</p>
<p>Then many share their past-present-future timelines, timelines that integrate life events before they were born, during their life, and their imagined future. After that the children read an example of their writing—beautiful examples including &quot;The Best Part of Me&quot; and/or an &quot;Autumn Snapshot.&quot; Next they share their text that tells who they are as a reader and specific examples of deep reading study. Math reflections, social-emotional learning assessment/goals, images and rating of special learning events, and examples of signature learning are also presented.</p>
<p>As the teacher I share a number of data points related to math and reading assessments as well as learning comments written by my grade-level colleagues. Throughout the presentation students, family members, and I discuss possible strategies, resources, and ideas related to learning challenges or needs that occur, and in the end, family members and students are asked to share any needs or questions they have about the learning year.</p>
<p>These student-led family-student-teacher conferences are a keeper because they put the students center stage in a conversation about his/her learning. The showcase portfolios serve as a good guide now, and later will serve as a grade-level keepsake. We've grown this effort over the past many years, and the results are continually better. This process gives voice to every child in an atmosphere that supports, celebrates, and directs his/her studies. I'm sure we will continue to develop this approach, and in the meantime I welcome your ideas. </p>

Happy Childhood Memories Linked to Better Adult Health - 13 Dec 2018 02:52

Tags:

<p>Emerging psychological research from Michigan State University suggests fond memories of childhood are&nbsp; linked to better health, less depression and fewer chronic illnesses in adulthood.</p>
<p>“We know that memory plays a huge part in how we make sense of the world — how we organize our past experiences and how we judge how we should act in the future. As a result, there are a lot of different ways that our memories of the past can guide us,” said William J. Chopik, Ph.D., lead author of the study.</p>
<p>“We found that good memories seem to have a positive effect on health and well-being, possibly through the ways that they reduce stress or help us maintain healthy choices in life.”</p>
<p>The research is published by the American Psychological Association in the journal <em>Health Psychology</em>.</p>
<p>Previous research has shown a positive relationship between good memories and good health in young adults, including higher quality of work and personal relationships, lower substance use, lower depression and fewer health problems, according to Chopik.</p>
<p>In the new study, Chopik and his co-author, Robin Edelstein, Ph.D., from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, wanted to see how this would apply to older adults.</p>
<p>Also, much of the existing research focused on mothers and rarely examined the role of fathers in child development. Chopik and Edelstein sought to expand on the existing studies to include participants’ reflections of their relationships with both parents.</p>
<p>The researchers used data from two nationally representative samples, the National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States and the Health and Retirement Study, with a total of more than 22,000 participants.</p>
<p>The first study followed adults in their mid-40s for 18 years and the second followed adults 50 and over for six years. The surveys included questions about perceptions of parental affection, overall health, chronic conditions and depressive symptoms.</p>
<p>Participants in both groups who reported remembering higher levels of affection from their mothers in early childhood experienced better physical health and fewer depressive symptoms later in life. Those who reported memories with more support from their fathers also experienced fewer depressive symptoms, according to Chopik.</p>
<p>“The most surprising finding was that we thought the effects would fade over time because participants were trying to recall things that happened sometimes over 50 years ago. One might expect childhood memories to matter less and less over time, but these memories still predicted better physical and mental health when people were in middle age and older adulthood,” said Chopik.</p>
<p>There was a stronger association in people who reported a more loving relationship with their mothers, noted Chopik, but that might change.</p>
<p>“These results may reflect the broader cultural circumstances of the time when the participants were raised because mothers were most likely the primary caregivers,” said Edelstein. “With shifting cultural norms about the role of fathers in caregiving, it is possible that results from future studies of people born in more recent years will focus more on relationships with their fathers.”</p>

<p>This recipe is lightly sweetened by the carrots without taking away the yummy grapefruit flavor.&nbsp; I love the grapefruit in this because the carrots offset the tartness of the grapefruit and it ends up being relatively low in sugar, even though it is a fruit and vegetable juice. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is. And just look at how colorful it is!</p>*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.

<p>I also have to give a shout out to one of my besties, I got this recipe from her.&nbsp; She likes to make fresh juice to get some more fruits and veggies into her daily diet, and her health-conscious mind has paid off – she always looks beautiful!</p>
<h2>Juicing 101</h2>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal This advice is coming from someone that is NOT well versed in the juicing culture.&nbsp; I am definitely a novice, but I have learned a few things that might be helpful for a beginner or for someone that would like to start adding green juices to their diet for some extra nutrients.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p class=" ecxmsonormal="" i="" added="" green="" juices="" to="" my="" diet="" when="" started="" my <a="" title="My Experience With a Self-Managed Detox" href="https://www.mynaturalfamily.com/natural-health/self-managed-detox/ self-managed detox], and drank them daily for &nbsp;4-6 months.&nbsp; I now enjoy a green juice every once in a while, when I am craving one or when I need a quick nutrient or energy boost.&nbsp; I have never done a juice fast or cleanse, and will not be offering any advice on that – I will leave that to the experts.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p class=" first="" and="" foremost,="" personally="" think="" taste="" awful! ="" with="" some="" fruit="" are="" palatable,="" juice="" greens="" pretty="" tasty="" –="" done="" right. ="" if="" you="" new="" juicing,="" recommend="" adding="" very="" slowly="" start="" more="" mild="" veggies="" such="" as="" carrots,="" celery,="" cucumber. ="" that="" said,="" here="" of="" the="" basics…<=""> </p>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal &lt;strong&gt;Juicing information and facts&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt;&lt;li class=" ecxmsonormal=""  juicing="" removes="" the="" fiber="" from="" produce="" that="" is="" juiced.<="" i=""> </p>
<li class="ecxMsoNormal Fiber is the only thing that is removed when juicing.&nbsp; All the nutrients remain, allowing the body to utilize and absorb them quickly (since it doesn’t have to digest all of the fiber).&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" with="" the="" fiber="" being="" removed,="" sugars="" from="" fruits="" or="" vegetables="" become="" concentrated,="" resulting="" in="" really="" sweet="" juice="" (fresh="" apple="" is="" too="" for="" me="" to="" drink="" by="" itself).<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph The concentrated sugars can also affect blood sugars, so if you have diabetes low sugar,&nbsp;produce is recommended (i.e. above earth vegetables and green apples).&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" the="" fiber="" that="" is="" removed="" referred="" to="" as="" juice="" pulp. ="" i="" just="" throw="" mine="" away,="" but="" you="" can="" find="" recipes="" online="" reuse="" pulp.<=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph Fresh juice is different from store-bought juice because store-bought juice is pasteurized.&nbsp; Pasteurization can kill off some of the beneficial enzymes and nutrients from the juice, but it also allows the juice to have a much longer shelf life.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" juicing="" can="" be="" expensive. ="" it="" takes="" a="" lot="" of="" fresh="" produce="" to="" make="" large="" glass="" juice…but="" also="" floods="" your="" body="" with="" nutrients.<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph I have had a positive experience including fresh juice in my diet, and think it played an important role in balancing my post-partum hormones – that is my personal thoughts/opinion&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt;&lt;p class=" ecxmsonormal="" <strong="">Juicers&nbsp;– There are two basic types of juicers; centrifugal juicer and a masticating juicer (cold pressed).&nbsp; The juicer I have this Breville juicer.<p></p>
<ul>
<li class="ecxMsoNormal Centrifugal Juicer &lt;ul&gt;&lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" chops="" and="" spins="" the="" produce="" (really="" really="" fast)="" to="" extract="" juice="" (this="" is="" a="" very="" simplified="" explanation)<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph Produces juice almost instantly&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" less="" expensive<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph Juice goes bad quickly, must consume within a couple of hours&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" some="" of="" the="" nutrients="" are="" lost="" during="" juicing="" process<="" i=""> </li>
</ul></li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph Masticating Juicer &lt;ul&gt;&lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" presses="" the="" produce="" to="" extract="" juice="" (once="" again="" a="" very="" simplified="" explanation)<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph Juicing process typically slower&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" more="" expensive<="" i=""> </li>
<li class="ecxMsoListParagraph The juice will stay good in the fridge for a couple of days&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li class=" ecxmsolistparagraph="" fewer="" nutrients="" are="" lost="" during="" the="" juicing="" process<="" i=""> </li>
<p class="ecxMsoNormal &lt;strong&gt;Produce&lt;/strong&gt;&nbsp;– this is a list of produce that I like to juice, this is not a definitive list&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt;&lt;li class=" ecxmsonormal="" apples="" –="" are="" my="" favorite="" way="" to="" sweeten="" up="" a="" veggie="" juice<="" i=""> </p>

<div class="post-body &lt;div&gt; &lt;p&gt;The annual Joy House Film Festival is on again at Hoyts, celebrating short films of JOY and DIVERSITY.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The Joy House Film Festival was founded 5 years ago and was inspired by a remark a friend in the industry had made saying there’s not enough film festivals that left people feeling uplifted afterwards. She had just attended a film festival that was diverse in content but left her feeling disturbed. Being a filmmaker myself, I thought why not pay it forward and spread this sense of&nbsp;&lt;span&gt;community and start my own film festival, one that is positive, uplifting and with diversity – so it reflects society how it stands today.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This year, Joy House Film Festival was asked to be partners with New York’s World Film Fair!&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“It’s great that World Film Fair approached us because that means our top 10 short films will be shown internationally and our message of joy and diversity will be shared – globally. Already from its conception we’ve seen an increase in diversity content in films, a jump from 10 to 50-60% in a matter of 5 years. It’s exciting to be part of this diversity movement.” Says founder and NSW elected MEAA’s (Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance’s Diversity representative), Joy Hopwood.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Films selected include: Any Help Will Help (comedy US), Munchies (Australian stop motion animation), Digby Webster Doco about a successful artist with a disability (Australia), Creed (Australian Youth film) about a Muslim boy who has a passion for soccer, Good For One Free Hug (US), Reflector of Living Will (Foreign Film),&nbsp;&lt;span&gt;That’s Life (Australian Rom Com), First Impressions (Australian Doco), Give me a minute (Australian Comedy), Joy and Herron (animation).&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Life’s too short for me to wait and see the change in the industry, so why not make the change,” says Joy Hopwood. “After the success of Crazy Rich Asians,” there’s definitely public demand for more diversity driven films to be made.”&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Joy House Film Festival gives out awards for not only best film, but best DIVERSITY film, best Youth Film, Hoyts People’s Choice Awards, Best Women’s Film. We’re supported by the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance’s Diversity committee.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The judges for this year’s festival includes writer/ screenwriter- Benjamin Law and writer/ screenwriter Alice Pung and the local mayor.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Joy House Film Festival&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Sunday Sept 9th Hoyts Mandarin Centre&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;4.30-6pm&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;cnr of Albert and Victor St,&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Chatswood.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p class=" post-main="" <div="" "=""></div>
