Articles, Books & Other Useful Tools
The following section contains links to books, articles, and resources to support you in your teaching.
What is Visible Learning?
Visible learning is a pedagogical approach that focuses on giving students the tools and opportunities to illustrate their thinking, what they know, and what they continue to struggle with. Learn more.
What is Student-Directed Teaching?
Student-directed teaching aims to give the student greater control, ownership, and accountability over his or her own education. The following books and articles are good references to aid in established student-directed teaching in your classroom.
Why Focus on Cross-Curricular Integration?
"There aren't enough house in the day." is an all too familiar refrain. We believe the unnecessary and artificial siloing of elementary lessons and content is a major contributor to the problem.
This recent article makes a strong case for cross-curricular teaching.
Below we've listed a variety of classroom resources and tools that have been shared with us by teacher in the CreositySpace community.
Although we have not authored the documents directly, we find them to be well aligned with the CreositySpace curriculum and teaching philosophy.
CreositySpace curriculum has been developed to fully support the K-5 Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the new K-5 New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS). A number of states have adopted, or are adopting, K-5 science standards that are similar to the NGSS. Add in another concluding type sentence here but I'm not sure what.
Not so sure about keeping the Metrics section
CreositySpace curriculum is developed in collaboration with teachers & students from across the US.
Initial evaluation of program efficacy was performed via informal surveys that probed how much students felt they had learned, what they knew about science, and what they wanted to be when they grew up.
Across all grades and both genders students felt they had learned more about a given topic after participating in the CreositySpace program.
Work continues with a number of universities and federal agencies to align our impact assessment with methods that are accepted in the field. Where possible, we intend to track cohorts of students through elementary school, into middle school and beyond to demonstrate that connecting kids to STEM through the values and qualities of entrepreneurs and innovators, forms lasting and effective impressions.
