_mindblue_Ryan R. GobleRT @ajr1206: Does anyone in this chat work in rural area with little access to tech at home for students? #litlead
2
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboBuild in time to get to know students then develop lessons tailored to their needs, interests and skills. #litchat #litlead
3
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboAnna Roseboro, CEL Liaison to NCTE Secondary Section. Past Eng. Dept Chair. New Tweeter. I was in wrong chat room! #litlead #litlead
4
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboBeginning of year classroom assignments based on those planned dept meetings and grade level meetings. #litlead #litlead
5
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership Students see teachers modeling collaboration when they talk with peers about commonly assigned lessons. #litlead
6
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboWhat about fact that all students may not have quiet place and resources to do homework? #litlead
7
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@jschwarzeteach We were even able to get math, music and art teachers to collaborate in 7th, 8th, 9th, and 11th grade lessons! #litlead
8
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership One thing than can help - students repeat last comment before stating theirs. Slows down discussion.Stays on track. #litlead
9
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@RebeccaSipe True at college level. Often not possible in pre-collegiate settings. What options then? #litlead
10
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@Lara_4teachers Be glad to share some lessons. OK to talk after chat? #litlead
11
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership Yes. Model responses. Provide specific prompts after grouping students to respond to 3 peers in assigned group. #litlead
12
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@jschwarzeteach Do all your students have access to tech at home or do you allot in-class time to respond to peers? #litlead
13
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@heatherrocco Try to have at least one prepared "speech" per qtr so students learn difference between impromptu and planned ones. #litlead
14
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership Incorporating in-class reading time can provide time for1 on 1 conferencing.Takes awhile for students.Worth effort. #litlead
15
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@pradlfan This can work, if students have guidelines for ranking and its done anonymously. #litlead
16
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@AndersonGL Collaborate with librarians for purchasing multiple copies books. Assign books topics or genres. Let students choose. #litlead
17
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@heatherrocco Good idea.Supervised students less tempted to plagiarize. Include peer responding to draft helps too. #litlead
18
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@pradlfan Works well when students asked to use info from own books to compare/contrast/connect to class read book. Keeps fresh. #litlead
19
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@AndersonGL Amen. Their topics provide insight into their interests which helps us plan future lessons. Keeps us learning, too. #litlead
20
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@jschwarzeteach I did at college level, not middle or high school. Students viewed video clips at home. We talked/wrote in class. #litlead
21
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@RebeccaSipe Reason for allotting in class time for reading and modeling ways to respond to what they read. #litlead
22
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboAn authentic audience does not have to be a real one.Students can write in persona of lit character to one in another book.Purpose. #litlead
23
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@jschwarzeteach It may be useful to create linked pages re: grammar & org.students can check before submitting writing for grading. #litlead
24
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@MrsRit Creating groups on WIKI and asking students to respond to specific group works well. They're focused, but still have choice #litlead
25
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership Such specific, personal interest topics be included in research and speech assignments. #litlead
26
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@heatherrocco Post tables on WIKI.Ss sign up for group. Respond by assigned date to peers of agned group.Credit 4 on time responses #litlead
27
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@heatherrocco Blackboard is best.Edmodo and Moddle works for some. #litlead
28
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboDoes anyone in this chat work in rural area with little access to tech at home for students? #litlead
29
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@teachcmb56 Love School house rock! Students recall rules decades later. Like singing ABC's when using print dictionary "-). #litlead
30
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@jschwarzeteach In class responding to peer writing also place to give "voice" to quiet students. They often are excellent criquers #litlead
31
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@AndersonGL Not sure which tweet you're responding to here. #litlead
32
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboEncourage new teachers to speak up. They often have great, new, current info our veterans (non CEL) made not know. #litlead
33
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@AndersonGL Right! #litlead
34
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboThanks, Heather for great start on #litlead.
35
AndersonGLGary AndersonRT @CELeadership: Q3 - How does your school's ELA curriculum incorporate student choice, including books, into the curriculum? #litlead
36
AndersonGLGary Anderson@CELeadership Our school has several teachers whose students read books of their own choosing every day in class. #litlead
37
AndersonGLGary AndersonStudents should also have a lot of leeway in choosing writing topics. Choice leads to voice. #litlead
38
AndersonGLGary AndersonRT @heatherrocco: My students read their own book for the first ten minutes of class every day. It builds a community of readers. #litlead
39
AndersonGLGary Anderson@ajr1206 When we provide writing topics, students assume we are expecting specific responses. When they choose, voice comes alive. #litlead
40
AndersonGLGary AndersonRT @CELeadership: Q4 - How do we create authentic writing experiences for our students? How do we create authentic audiences? #litlead
41
AndersonGLGary Anderson@CELeadership Blogging creates authentic writing for an authentic world-wide audience. #litlead
42
AndersonGLGary Anderson@jschwarzeteach Yes. When students comment on each other's blog posts, they are also using social media without text-speak. #litlead
43
AndersonGLGary Anderson@heatherrocco What do you think is missing in your blog organization? I'd like to help with this if I can. #litlead
44
AndersonGLGary Anderson@heatherrocco We use Ning. Other possiblities include Edmodo, Wetpaint. Depends what your school will support. #litlead
45
AndersonGLGary Anderson@heatherrocco Agree re Blogspot. Difficult to coordinate. Better if under one platform. Here are our blogs: http://t.co/hJWBo3w6 #litlead
46
AndersonGLGary Anderson@teachersfriend @ajr1206 Standardized test essay questions frequently lead to this kind of limited thinking too. #litlead
47
AndersonGLGary Anderson@teachersfriend @ajr1206 My answer: What does this have to be about? "I don't know. You decide." #litlead
48
AndersonGLGary Anderson@teachersfriend @ajr1206 My answer to How long does it have to be? "You'll know when you're finished." #litlead
49
CELeadershipCELWelcome to our first #litlead chat! Tonight we'll discuss how we design ELA curriculum to meet the needs of today's learners. #litlead
50
CELeadershipCELAs you join the conversation, take a moment to introduce yourself - name, location and position. #litlead
51
CELeadershipCELWe have 5 questions prepared to pose to the group to facilitate the chat, but feel free to add your own as we go. #litlead
52
CELeadershipCELQ1 - What skills do we need to include in our curriculum now that we may not have needed to 10 years ago? #litlead
53
CELeadershipCELCollaboration is a crucial component to our ELA curriculum. What are ways you emphasize this in your design of the curriculum? #litlead
54
CELeadershipCEL@Lara_4teachers Welcome! #litlead
55
CELeadershipCEL@jschwarzeteach In what ways? In all grade levels? #litlead
56
CELeadershipCELMany teachers struggle to teach listening. It is a skill we need to present explicitly rather than assume they'll get it. #litlead
57
CELeadershipCEL@pradlfan Interesting strategy. Is this a whole group discussion or in smaller groups? Both? #litlead
58
CELeadershipCEL@teachcmb56 Do you do so only digitally? Teaching kids how to collaborate digitally is so important too. Do you teach this? #litlead
59
CELeadershipCELWe have touched on our second question already. Q2 How do we incorporate these skills into our day to day instruction. #litlead
60
CELeadershipCEL@ajr1206 mentioned being responsive to students as a new component of ELA curriculum. #litlead
61
CELeadershipCELQ3 - How does your school's ELA curriculum incorporate student choice, including books, into the curriculum? #litlead
62
CELeadershipCELQ4 - How do we create authentic writing experiences for our students? How do we create authentic audiences? #litlead
63
CELeadershipCEL@teachcmb56 Are your teachers creating the videos? #litlead
64
CELeadershipCEL@RebeccaSipe Actually, @pennykittle will lead our #litlead conversation April 11th, so it will definitely be discussed at length! #litlead
65
CELeadershipCELAt #CEL12 @pegtyre made an excellent point re: writing. Don't think the only writing that matters to kids is narrative. #litlead
66
CELeadershipCELFor some kids, writing computer manuals or reviews of motorcycles really matters to them. Where is this in ELA curriculum? #litlead
67
CELeadershipCEL@teachcmb56 Have you ever used @flocabulary as reinforcement? #litlead
68
CELeadershipCEL@teachcmb56 I ask b/c I've watched middle school classes where the students have heard their raps & know grammar rules b/c of it. #litlead
69
CELeadershipCELIn our last few minutes, Q5: What is your next goal to improve your school's ELA curriculum? #litlead
70
CELeadershipCEL@ajr1206 AMEN! #litlead
71
CELeadershipCELThank you for coming to our first #litlead chat. If you don't know, CEL is the a constituent groups of @NCTE for literacy leaders. #litlead
72
CELeadershipCELWe host a convention every Nov after the @NCTE conv. You can submit a session proposal for #CEL13 at http://t.co/1gUAy1kg #litlead
73
CELeadershipCELWe'll discuss supporting VETERAN teachers during our next #litlead chat on Thursday, Feb 14 at 8:30 pm EST. Hope you'll join us! #litlead
74
CELeadershipCELI'll try to post an archive of this chat soon. Thank you all! #litlead
75
CELeadershipCELWe'll be here the second Thursday of each month. March 14th @ichrislehman will join us and on April 11th @pennykittle will be here! #litlead
76
CELeadershipCEL@Lara_4teachers Thanks for joining us! #litlead
77
CELeadershipCEL@Lara_4teachers Great. Can you tell me how to do this? #litlead
78
CELeadershipCEL@drforman It was. Glad you popped in! I'll post an archive relatively soon.
#litlead
79
drformanJames FormanArrived late, but it seems like a good conversation.

heatherroccoHeather RoccoJoin the #litlead chat that is happening now! Facilitated by @CELeadership
81
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@ajr1206 Hi Anna. Make sure you use #litlead to post your responses for the chat. Thanks!
82
heatherroccoHeather RoccoJust saw @donalynnbooks tweet the @ascd Smartbrief re social & emotional learning. This plays a role in ELA too. We teach empathy#litlead
83
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@jschwarzeteach I saw this in a 7th grade ELA class. Teacher taught how to discuss rather than just present info to a small group. #litlead
84
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@ajr1206 I include class time for this as do many of my teachers in my dept. As teacher, I can then step in a support this work. #litlead
85
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@teachcmb56 I need to move my dept toward podcasts. We do a This I Believe assignment in 9th grade. They should be recorded. #litlead
86
heatherroccoHeather RoccoI brought the writing workshop model into my senior English this year. Most of the researching, writing & revising done in class. #litlead
87
heatherroccoHeather RoccoThen I am there to teach and support them when questions or issues arise. If they are doing the work at home, I can't help them. #litlead
88
heatherroccoHeather RoccoMy students read their own book for the first ten minutes of class every day. It builds a community of readers. #litlead
89
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@ajr1206 Absolutely. That is definitely a benefit. And I see their work all the way through. #litlead
90
heatherroccoHeather RoccoI have just never been able to effectively organize the blogs with my students. I need a system! Suggestions? #litlead
91
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@AndersonGL What is the best platform to set each student up with his/her own blog & allow them to view & post on one another's. #litlead.
92
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@AndersonGL I've tried blogspot, but it wasn't great. I found it difficult to set up. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. #litlead
93
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@jschwarzeteach Is there a cost to Wordpress? Are the blogs private/closed? #litlead
94
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@AndersonGL We just started using @schoology, but I don't know about their blog features. I've heard it is a similar to Edmodo. #litlead
95
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@AndersonGL This is great. Thank you so much for sharing! I may reach out in the future for more advice! #litlead
96

jschwarzeteachJanice SchwarzeExcited for my 1st twitter chat. (Janice Schwarze, Illinois, English & Communication Department Chair) - digital reading skills #litlead
99
jschwarzeteachJanice SchwarzeWe explicitly teach speaking and listening skills which hopefully lead to effective collaboration. #litlead
100
jschwarzeteachJanice SchwarzeFor example, we teach discussion skills rather than just conducting discussions. #litlead
