Kindergarten Readiness in Wisconsin - Report from a research study
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Wisconsin’s, gaps between Black and White student high school graduation rates (Richards, 2016) and Black and White fourth-grade math and reading scores (U.S. Department of Education, 2015) are the largest in the nation. These inequalities have led to criticisms of Wisconsin’s schools and teachers as ineffective in bolstering the success of students of color and those who are economically disadvantaged.

This report from researchers at UW-Madison describes differences in school readiness as reflected by literacy skills at Kindergarten entry among children in Wisconsin. We document inequalities in literacy skills by race/ethnicity, family income and place. Our results show that teachers and schools in Wisconsin face a daunting challenge in producing equitable educational outcomes for our children.

Native American Cultural Children's Stories
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

The cultural children's story project allows students to explore Native American culture through a new lens by authoring and illustrating children's stories that teach children between the ages of four and six a lesson or tale unique to Native cultural traditions. The exemplar stories are laminated, bound, and given as gifts to an area elementary school with a primarily Native student body. Student authors read the stories to the children, and the books become part of the children's classroom library. The children learn cultural traditions from a young age and see their mentors (often Native students as well) as role models and writers. The authors learn the skills to develop their stories from conception to publication to presentation.Cultural Children's Story Video Lesson

Reframing the Use of Culturally-Responsive Children's Literature in Early Childhood Environmental and STEM Education: A Reflection to Action Tool to Cultivate Genius
Rating
0.0 stars

This project is a reflection to action tool based on the work of Muhammad (2020) in her book, "Cultivating Genius for Culturally and Historically Relevant Literacy." This tool contains a reflective chart that assesses the impact of each of Muhammad's pursuits including identity, skills, intelligence, criticality, and joy in relation to university, departmental, and course procedures and curriculum. Specific improvements are suggested to cultivate genius in each pursuit in both the Early Childhood STEM Math Methods and Early Childhood Science and Environment Methods courses. As a result of the reflective process, a notable course improvement discovered relates to culturally-responsive children's literature. This tool includes a plan of action to acquire new Math, STEM, Science, and Environment children's literature that is culturally-responsive, to add a unit topic related to questioning strategies that cultivate genius, and a modified STEM Literacy project. This tool includes a sample project revision as well as suggested culturally-responsive children's literature in each STEM and Environmental Education area.

This project was created as part of the 2023 Teacher Educator Network for Environmental Education Summit.

Rating
0.0 stars

As state and local education agencies increasingly focus on serving educators with their data systems, a common challenge has arisen: identifying the critical knowledge and skills needed by teachers and administrators to use data effectively. Many states are creating data literacy and data use training programs for pre- and in-service educators without a common foundation on which to base the content. In addition, several state education agencies and educator preparation programs have begun communicating about how to create a stronger alignment between pre- and in-service training for educators regarding data use.
