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.

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

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.

This was a fun project I did with my band to fill the few days between the Holiday Concert and the beginning of Christmas vacation.  It engaged my students by using the pep band songs they already knew and creating a story line.  It engaged the elementary students with the performance of our story.  I introduced the narrator and characters in a story which reinforced their learning of English and storytelling.  
In a couple of days my students had come up with ideas of how to portray characters that came to search for a holiday spirit.  We rehearsed the songs while our characters figured out their own blocking.

“Using Nature Journaling to Facilitate Early Childhood Cycles of Inquiry”
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This nature journaling unit is intended for use in an upper division early childhood education science and environment methods course; and will occur in three steps, likely during three consecutive class periods. The intention of this learning sequence is to prepare early childhood pre-service educators to implement nature journaling experiences in order to facilitate emergent cycles of inquiry that will extend theory build and wonder in young children. First the pre-service educators will learn about nature journaling, how to engage with the practice themselves, and how to facilitate nature journaling with young children. Then, through a series of nature journaling practice activities, the pre-service educators will engage in their own nature journaling practice as it connects to the broader early childhood science question of ecological perspective taking and participation with nature. Finally, they will explore how to facilitate and observe children’s nature journaling practice, and how to utilize the questions that emerge from this recurrent practice in cycles of inquiry planning.
