Hidden Brain Podcast Episode 4: Students and Teachers
Vedantam, Shankar. "Episode 4: Students and Teachers." Audio blog post. Hidden Brain. NPR, 13 Oct. 2015. Web. 15 Oct. 2015. <http://www.npr.org/podcasts/510308/hidden-brain>.
Hidden Brain is a podcast that reviews and reports on some of the latest studies in Social Science. This entire podcast is full of simple things teachers can do to increase student achievement and is worth a listen for anyone in education.

The portion of this article that is relevant to CN2 is in the first ten minutes. Foundational to this research project is the idea that when students have a personal connection to their teacher students have higher achievement.

Researchers polled students and teachers about their interests both inside and outside the classroom. They then parsed the information and shared commonalities with both parties. For example, a student would be told that their teacher likes football just like the student does. A teacher would be told common interests for all students. Not only did student achievement rise, but the teacher's expectations rose also. Incredibly, minority students (Hispanic/Latino and African American/Black) saw a 60% decrease in the achievement gap in this urban district.
"...minority students (Hispanic/Latino and African American/Black) saw a 60% decrease in the achievement gap with their white peers." (or something like that. It's audio and I'm a visual learner.)
Weakness: this research was done in high school classrooms in an urban district where the student demographics are quite different from ours. Also, some of the ideas in the remainder of the podcast are neat but not relevant to our CN.

Useful: if engineering personal connections with our students simply by identifying common interests like football, Star Wars, etc leads to closing the achievement gap for our Hispanic/Latino subgroup, then why wouldn't we? This is one of the easiest interventions I've ever heard of. Sounds fun too.
Time to break out the book of AVID icebreakers! Actually, my idea for an intervention is to include SBACC/CAASPP-style tasks frequently in the classroom. By surveying students I can both discover what settings for the tasks would be relevant to their interests and also get the information I need to engineer these personal relationships.
Not print, but here's the synopsis on the podcast website. I downloaded the podcast to my desktop and if there's room will move it onto the district server.

In this episode of the Hidden Brain podcast, the connections between students and teachers, and how finding things in common between them might be a tool for closing the achievement gap.

"Critical Thinking in Secondary Language Arts"
Published by the Indiana University of South Bend:

The article was about developing critical thinking in language arts classes. (Spanish classes) By helping students develop good thinking skills, they can achieve higher levels in all classes. Low level critical think skills include simply drill & lecture. By having students use self-reflection and questioning activities they can develop high level critical thinking skills. The article suggested using dialectical journals for helping to develop critical thinking skills in language arts classes.
"Sequencing, clarifying, predicting, and comparing are four critical thinking skills that create proficient readers, writers, and learners.
"High level critical thinking skills are those that deal with questioning activies such as debate and the Socratic Method. Low level critical thinking skills are simply drill and lecture."
"Steady and methodical application of critical thinking in the classroom improves learning and comprehension."
"Students must regularly form the habit of making inquiry about their thinking an think about their prior knowledge."
I thought it had useful information for language arts teachers & how to improve critical thinking in their classrooms. The author discusses the importance of developing critical thinking skills and how to best accomplish this in a high school language arts class.
In the Spanish department we allow students to make corrections of their tests and quizzes. In this manner the students are sharing their reasoning for why the correction should be made. By reflecting on what they did wrong and defending the corrections, they should be developing their critical thinking skills.
