Weekend Ed. Quote ~ November 5

“Knowing students means more than merely acquiring social or administrative information—students’ names and ages, something about their friendship circles, a bit about their family backgrounds, a few statistics from their academic record. To maximize learning, we need to dig deeper than this superficial acquaintance.”  ~William Powell & Ochan Kusuma~Powell

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there ‘is’ such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action. Procrastination is still the thief of time.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

“Everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.”

On the importance of connecting STEAM units to thinking inside the box…

The Arts 2

“In working with such a variety of schools, teachers, and students, as well as buildings, schedules, and budgets, the common and most important element in every situation was the dedication and determination of the staff to make STEAM succeed. This is where thinking inside the box was very useful. Teachers always have limitations with regard to, well, everything: budgets, schedules, space, and so on. STEAM not only encourages but also thrives on big ideas. By having to work inside the box, teachers developed incredibly creative solutions to most problems. In spite of the greatly varying accessobility to resources and staff time limitations, all schools were very successful in implementing STEAM.” ~David Sousa and Tom Pilecki, From STEM to STEAM: Brain Compatible Strategies and Lessons That Integrate the Arts, page 63.

Week 3: Thursday Thoughts ~ Quotes from Educators about STEAM Ideas! 

On the importance of epistemological pluralism in students’ representational artifacts of learning…

The Arts 2

 

“Making room for students’ cultural practices in standard education to important dilemmas for educators: How do they balance their students’ freedom and creative expression with academic constraints such as testing?  Researchers (Archer, et al., 2015) are studying the ways that students bring their knowledge, aptitude, skills, and experiences, or capital, into learning settings. For students from groups underrepresented in STEAM, the gap between knowledge and skills is wider than with other groups (Allina 2018). This is a problem that educators are working to solve through culturally relevant teaching and with tools and methods that connect students to where they come from in order to develop more effective ways to support their engagement in STEAM” (Gaskins, 2021, p. 4).

Progress

“Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important is making progress in meaningful work. And the more frequently people experience that sense of progress, the more likely they are to be creatively productive in the long run. Whether they are trying to solve a major scientific mystery or simply produce a high-quality product or service, everyday progress — even a small win — can make all the difference in how they feel and perform.” ~Teresa M. Amabile and Steven J. Kramer, The progress principle: Using small wins to ignite joy, engagement, and creativity at work.
