Help on a Wiki project


I am trying to create a class wiki for my ESL
students. The main topic would revolve around learning English. Anyone
know of any good wikis that I can direct my students to for ideas. Also
does anyone know of any experts who would be interested in editing and
commenting on student work?

I am also interested in connecting with other ESL/ELD teachers. Anyone intrested in collaborating on a project?

The Return of The One Comment Project

In July of 2009, I launched The One Comment A Day Project. My mission was to promote new bloggers and bring comments to existing blogs.

The members of the ning remained, however, the collaborative dialogue that…

Collaborative Project: Encompassing the Arts Across the Grades

The collaborative unit/project I created is titled Encompassing the Arts Across the Grades. It has been said that a name tells all. In this case, much can be assumed from the title. The Web 2.0 tool, VoiceThread is used, the main curriculum area covered is the arts, and the participants span more than one grade level of students. I would add that the language arts are also a major curriculum area that this project complements.… Continue

Replacing the Daily Planner with an iGoogle Page

Every year, students receive a daily planner before the start of school. Depending on the grade level, some teachers will spend a day showing students how to effectively plan their week. For most, this is a practical tool that has worked for many years. However, it is also a tool that many students lose. What if it was…

Hamlet in Plain English

I thought for my first official post on this site I would entertain my readers and fellow teachers with a new way to look at William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Pass GO, collect your $200 and get to Common Craft!!!! Ken Rodoff, our technology coach at Springfield, introduced me to this site and we were both impressed by… Continue
