Given today's poetry prompt of play I had to try something I have never done before: Remix a voice poem in GarageBand
In the shower I came up with the phrase "majestic, frenetic, poetic play", and I thought about how awesome it was for Wendy to play with spoken word in a poetic gift to someone. I wanted to try something new.
So I grabbed a couple phrases from #clmooc twitter this morning. "Take a Step Back" and "Tinkering As Agentive Feedback" and added "Find Your Answers in Your Poetry and Your Poetry in Your Play"
I then recorded each track...learned you need to silence the other tracks, and then re-recorded all the tracks.
Next I learned you can right click and select "split at masthead" I then moved clips around, played with volume...and of course reverb...cuz you know...rock and roll
Also reason adding @withknown support to @reviewtalentfs and single sign on between two (paid for from joint @scsu and @uconn grant) want to connect reflective teacher archiving with rubric based feedback and coaching. return teachers to peoples, not numbers
While hundreds of millions spent to learn you can't combine two numbers from multiple assessments with predictive validity issues and make up a new and improved better number, did learn reflection, coaching, feedback, coaching make difference.
Pulling away from Workshop models to more lit circles and book clubs around specific text sets, as teacher your questioning and feedback drives so much of #literacies learning. Simply can not construct the spiraling questions that help move mastery
text based discussion and analysis required #literacies in any discipline, crafting feedback to students using targeted learning goals, explicit instruction woven into culture of reading and writing through playing with words in all modalities
