Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 09/26/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found 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!

Muchobeets – “What offers... Create an unlimited number of flash cards, Share and study flash cards with your friends, Study in a non-distracting and ad-free environment - All for FREE!”

Kwout – “is a way you quote a part of a web page as an image with an image map.”

BBtv World – a “ series, in which we bring you first-person accounts of life around the world.”

212 The Movie – great inspirational movie

Moot Court – “A moot court is a role play of an appeals court or Supreme Court hearing. The court, composed of a panel of justices, is asked to rule on a lower court's decision. No witnesses are called. Nor are the basic facts in a case disputed. Arguments are prepared and presented on a legal question (e.g., the constitutionality of a law or government action). Since moot courts are not concerned with the credibility of witnesses, they are an effective strategy for focusing student attention on the underlying principles and concepts of justice.”
