"I've done this with 6th grade! It's so much fun, isn't it? I provided a list of each book they came across (with a short blurb), and then they could mark it and later add it to their "want to read" list on our school's…"

Coding contests for HS?

Does anyone know of any not-too-advanced coding competitions for HS students? This is the first year the school I'm teaching at is offering a coding course, and it might be nice to give the kids something to work toward. Some contests I saw online seemed best for very advanced students, so I'm hoping to find something a little less demanding, or that has a level for beginners. Thanks!!See More

Hi! It looks like this group has been really quiet... I'm not sure if anyone will see this, but I'll throw it out there and maybe we can pump some life into this group!!  :)Does anyone know of any not-too-advanced coding competitions for HS students?

Homer's Odyssey on Twitter

I'm laughing so hard I can hardly breathe!! Check out this version of The Odyssey done in Tweet format! Some inappropriate comments but would SO be a hit in a HS classroom:

Visual Grammar lesson for HS history

This amazing lesson on deconstructing WWII posters is British but would be a great additional to a HS (or advanced MS) history class: http://aspirations.english.cam.ac.uk/converse/movies/visual_grammar.swf . Kids get to look at WWII propaganda posters and decide which emotions are being appealed to (excuse the passive voice!!) by each one.

Gcast - instant podcast from your classroom!

Have your students give a daily recap of what they learned, podcast directly from a field trip, or say pretty much anything on an insta-podcast! All you need is a cell phone. Check it out at gcast.com. I plan to use this w/ my first-grade gifted and talented program; at the end of each session, one lucky kid will get to give the daily diary of what we did, plus one other shout-out they feel like doing!

Hey Kelly, I sent you an email a couple of weeks ago but I'm not sure you're getting any of them from me or that I even have the correct address. Also posted to your FB wall...

Can you confirm that you got the email? Thanks!!

Hey Kelly - can you post your street lit links in the A lit discussion forum and maybe copy and paste them in the librarian group. Those resources are too good to get buried on the comment wall! Hope you're cool! RRG:)

Hi Kelly,
It looks like we should have a more substantive conversation - I'd love to know more about all of them. I'll be at ALA until July 15th - can I call you after that?

I'm interested in use of media, Web 2.0 for curriculum-related purposes - what kind of projects/activities are you doing related to reading, information literacy...or ?

Kelly,
It sounds like you're a school librarian - I'm looking for stories about use of media by school librarians for a chapter I'm writing...?
