Useful Information for In and Out of the Classroom 03/21/08

Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 03/21/08
Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found interesting this week. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Lego Games – games for all different ages. This would make a great motivator to get students to complete work.

Graphic Organizers for Content Instruction – ready made organizers for you to use

MIT OpenCourseWare: Highlights for High School

Termites - software to create seating plans. This helps you arrange seating according to personality traits without pulling your hair out.

Spelling City – practice for spelling tests

Great info as usual! Thanks!

The graphic organizer site will be great for my ELL and SPED kids in my 9th grade class. I'm always looking for ways of breaking the info down for them.

The termite site was good too. I use Gradekeeper for my grades and it also has a seating chart feature as well.
