Video: Is Lafayette Parish Schools Selling a “Visual Strategy” or Common Core?

September 6, 2014
Let’s examine a program known as Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS). They’ve been around for a while. It is important to note that VTS predates test-driven education “reform,” both the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and No Child Left Behind (NCLB):
VTS is a well-known program developed by Abigail Housen and Philip Yenawine more than twenty years ago, used in museums both locally and internationally, as well as in schools, colleges and universities.  The founders of VTS incorporated Visual Understanding in Education as a non-profit organization in 1995 with a mission to broaden the use of VTS, deepen our research, and increase the understanding of Aesthetic Development.
Today, VTS is one of the most significant art education and critical thinking programs with a national presence. We are a small staff with an active national volunteer board, along with regional VTS boards which support teams of trainers and consultants through out the country and the world.
VTS is looking to establish itself in the K12 classroom, and these days, VTS has found it useful to advertise that “VTS fits into the Common Core Standards puzzle.”
One school system that is posting a video ad for VTS is in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Watch Lafayette Parish teachers and admin in this four-and-a-half-minute VTS promo:






Lafayette Parish Schools is all for CCSS.
In their video promo for VTS, Lafayette teachers and administration pitch for VTS. They note that it helps students who are not good at reading and writing. They note that VTS works because test scores are high.
But I am confused.
First, if VTS predates CCSS and VTS raises test scores, why do we need CCSS?
Second, if the benefit of VTS is that it helps students who are not as good at reading and writing, how is it that these “not so good readers and writers” are producing high test scores?
Third, if CCSS is only now being fully implemented in classrooms nationwide and Louisiana has not even taken any supposedly-fully-aligned CCSS assessments, how is it that VTS is so surely raising scores on tests that are certainly connected to CCSS?
Fourth, what magic will VTS work in the light of highly-likely, ever-shifting,capriciously-Video: Is Lafayette Parish Schools Selling a “Visual Strategy” or Common Core? | deutsch29:



The Courage of Their Convictions by teacherken

The Courage of Their Convictions:






is the title of this book by Peter Irons.
One of those featured in the book was a woman who as a girl - along with her brother - refused to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.  They were both Jehovah's Witnesses.  They were both expelled, and the Supreme Court, in 1940, upheld their expulsion in Minersville v Gobitis by an 8-1 vote, the sole dissent by Harlan Fisk Stone.
Three years later a somewhat different court ruled 6-3 in favor of another Jehovah;s Witness in West Virginia v Barnette, by a court whose chief Justice was Harlan Fisk Stone.  That decision is why to this day in theory students cannot be compelled to participate in the Pledge ceremony - even requiring them to stand is a violation of what Robert Jackson laid down in his opinion.
The relevance of this is again upon us, and we are reminded when we read Lillian Gobitas Klose, 90, Dies; Stood Against Mandatory Pledgeamong the obituaries in The New York Times.
As we read in the obituary,
Lillian Gobitas’s family belonged to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and heeded a leader’s call to refuse to recite the pledge in compliance with biblical commands against idolatry. On Oct. 22, 1935, Lillian’s brother William Gobitas, a fifth grader, refused to say the pledge at his public school in Minersville, Pa. The next day, Lillian did the same thing. The town school board responded by passing a resolution calling refusal to recite the pledge an act of insubordination. It then expelled the Gobitas children.
Please keep reading.
For 12-year-old Lillian, the sting from her act of conscience — which she said was entirely 


Krugman on "The Medicare Miracle"
... a funny thing has happened: Health spending has slowed sharply, and it’s already well below projections made just a few years ago. The falloff has been especially pronounced in Medicare, which is spending $1,000 less per beneficiary than the Congressional Budget Office projected just four years ago. That is one key paragraph from this Paul Krugman column in Monday's New York Times.  As is ofte
Ferguson - it is really about WHITE rage
White rage recurs in American history. It exploded after the Civil War, erupted again to undermine the Supreme Court’sBrown v. Board of Education decision and took on its latest incarnation with Barack Obama’s ascent to the White House. For every action of African American advancement, there’s a reaction, a backlash. That is a key quote from Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops. It’s white

Kristof: "When Whites Just Don’t Get It"
The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, th
