I am currently my districts reading specialist for grades 5-12. I teach a high school second chance reading class so am always looking for ideas for read alouds from short stories. I also have 7th and 8th grade reading exploratory and am looking for ideas for those students also. I have small groups of 5-8th grade students who are struggling readers.
Happy New Year! I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from Iowa!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
You're lucky to have a mac - I started on one but school is all PC.. I think you could do something similar with the slideshow tool available on the mac (is it keynote?) as you can add print, audio and photos.
Hi Dianna, earlier this term an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher shared with our staff a Microsoft Photostory her students had worked on the previous term where they added their oral stories to some photographs they had taken. Great for language development.
