Construct Express Reflect Part 1: What is Literacy?
Think about how you would answer the question: “What is literacy?” You will be sharing your ideas with your colleagues using an online mind mapping tool called MindMeister to collaboratively create a mind map of how you would collectively define 21st century learning.
Go to http://www.mindmeister.com/. Sign in using the Username and Password you created at the beginning of the course.
Select the “What is literacy?” mind map.
Add your ideas to the mind map.
What does "literacy" mean in the 21st Century? Has the concept changed over time? Part 2: Investigate 21st Century Literacies
Review the NCTE 21st Century Curriculum and Assessment Framework and the article “Inquiry Based Learning” from Curriculum Connections Through the Library. Think about the literacy demands of the 21st century and the implications for how teachers plan, support, and assess student learning.
Based on your new understanding of 21st century literacies, make any additions or changes to the mind map and review any edits made by your colleagues. Part 3: Incorporating Literacy Strategies into Your Instructional Practices
In the Discussion D3.1: What Does Literacy Look Like in the Classroom? discussion thread, write a 1-2 paragraph reflection on your learning. Reflect on what you learned and how you learned it. Was there an "Ah Ha" moment? Describe it. What do you need to know more about? Apply what you have learned in the class to your classroom. Give specifics on HOW you will apply this to your instruction or within the classroom context.
Respond to the posting of at least one of your colleagues in the Discussion D3.1: What Does Literacy Look Like in the Classroom? discussion. Meta-cognitive Journal: Reflect on Your Learning
You may use this online journal for your meta-cognitive journal assignment. You are also welcome to keep a personal journal. Use these questions to guide your journal entries:
What have I learned in this process that confirmed that what I have been doing in the classroom already is strong pedagogy and methodology?
How can the tools I have studied make a difference in how I plan for classroom instruction in the future? Give several examples.
How do I plan to implement the use of 21st century learning skills and primary sources into my classroom right now? (If you have challenges that would prohibit implementation explain them.)
How do I professionally justify the use of primary sources and 21st century learning in the classroom to other professionals and my administrative team?
