Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 1/2/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. 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!

BrainyFlix – SAT vocab contest starting Jan. 1.

Games for the Brain – fun games, can be used as incentives for students.

The Week In Rap– “A week's worth of news, rapped..every Friday.” I think students might enjoy this.

Do it, do it, done – “We provide a simple tool for creating and managing your todo list - all with a bit of fun and flair.”

Science is Fun – “The master of chemical demonstrations and science policy advocate, University of Wisconsin-Madison Chemistry Professor Bassam Z. Shakhashiri, shares the fun of science through home science activities, public presentations, scholarship, and other programs of the Wisconsin Initiative for Science Literacy.
