First, l want to invite you (okay, urge you, really) to visit and contribute to discussions about the American. Westward Expansion from 1780 to 1860. Here's a screenshot:
Now, the context. I'm hoping to engage my students in creating something with an authentic audience, while simultaneously teaching them a thing or two about US History & Language Arts. Oh yeah, did I mention my studnets are school-dependent 8th & 9th graders who may have a lot to say and… Continue

Right now my students are working through a chunk of Canadian History, examining a series of events that lead up to Confederation. In order to have them understand this flow of events, and how they lead from one to another to the final creation of our country, I have asked students to create a timeline. Last year, on a similar chunk of history, I had students use xTimeline
, but in the end I wasn't that pleased with the products the students… Continue

Thanks for clicking in!
For a while now, I wondered what I could add to Classroom2.0's discussions. What could I do is such a powerful community? Until now, I've stuck to writing and engaging on my own blog
I was replying to a post on Will Richardson's blog about 'The School of the Future', and for some reason, talked about the issues I face, as a father of a 7 year old with Aspergers Syndrome. I continually argue that he is… Continue
