Hi Mary! This is my first year with honors level students, so I am definitely learning a lot about their learning styles as opposed to my middle level students I taught last year. I would like to further their understandings of literature and writing we complete that will keep them even more engaged...especially for the Common Core State Standards that my state as adopted (Maryland).
Ha! Samantha, I meant to ask if you are teaching a sixth grade honors CLASS!
Hi all! I am a 6th grade HAP/Honors teacher with the language arts content. In reference to writing, what are some ways you use to collect data with your students progression of writing? Since I will be writing my SLO/teacher evaluation on this area of language arts, what are other ways I could keep data? I have used writing folders, but are there any other suggestions? Thanks!
I believe it was Beth, who mentioned she is constructing a lesson that requires the use of multiple novels and needed some more information in regards to blogs, as she wanted to use those as the large, technology piece when incorporating these nine novels. I recently just started a webpage in two different sites; Google and Weebly. Honestly, Weebly is so much smoother and cleaner to use, in my opinion... if you are a format nerd (like me), I think you will see the differences as well. With Weebly, you just have to click and drag formats, in Google, it is not as easy (that's not to say it is hard, because it isn't), the changes are just not as fluied on Google. Obviously, this is just my experience and opinion. Another application I have used within my district is EduBlogs, which again is another relatively seamless way to create a blog. So Beth, I think you have quite a few options to look and choice from yourself, I find the amount of access to these web applications can almost be overwhelming, so good luck!
I saw this article...very interesting. Do you think the increase in the rates of ASD are from an increase in prevelance or changes in diagnostic criteria?
Hi Everyone! My name is Megan and I am certified to teach middle level social studies and english. I have taught for four years, three of which were with 6th graders, and I love this age! (Well, for the most part anyway ;) ) So, what are your best Web 2.0 tools that you use with middle schoolers? I like using Educreation, Edublogs, and Screencast-O-Matic. Any applications you use and like would be greatly appreciated, as I'm always looking for new tools, thanks!
Hello! I am a Middle School English teacher at a private school for special needs students. I never thought I would teach Middle School, but strangely I love that age group. I am interested in learning more about incorporating technology into language arts instruction, motivating middle school students, and anything related to special education.
