Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/28/08

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!

Eats, Shoots, and Leaves – a punctuation game

Federal Resources for Educational Excellence – free resources for teachers to use

Playcrafter – “a website where anyone can create fun flash games using our free online game maker. After you've made a game you can share it with your friends on MySpace, Facebook, your blog or anywhere on the web.”

National Geographic Xpeditions – “home to the U.S. National Geography Standards—and to thousands of ideas, tools, and interactive adventures that bring them to life.”

The Numeracy Project – “The National Numeracy Project aims to help children improve their thinking skills from the start of school until the end. The Project identifies children's processing abilities and where blocks to thinking are caused by lack of instant recall of basic knowledge. Teachers then seek to improve students' thinking skills and to automatise the knowledge on which thinking rests. “
