Pedagogy and vocabulary


As I read about best practices of teaching, I am intrigued that one article from Learnist observes: many formative ( and summative) assessments are appropriate; vs. project based learning which does not endorse assessment. Everyone seems to have their own pedagogy; and often the principal determines how the teacher’s will be. 


I think about this as I look forward to next week’s lessons in the computer lab. I am greatly looking forward to it; but who knows if it will “take” with my 3rd and 4th graders. I will blog re: that later. But, I think my pedagogy is mainly to involve the students with the tools on the web that will help them both understand vocab, and also improve their writing.
