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:
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.
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 - 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:)
