Useful Information for In and Out of the Classroom 01/11/08

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!

Joel of So You Want To Teach? posted some really interesting videos on teaching styles using Power Teaching. There were examples of Power Teaching being taught at different levels from first grade to the college level.

TED: Ideas worth spreading

Qtoro: What did you learn today?- This is a kind of trivia game

Going to the Mat discusses Senator Kennedy on NCLB Reauthorization. Very interesting points are made in this!

Principled Discovery has a great post that shows “some interesting statistics from USA Today’s analysis of Department of Education statistics.” A great point was made about the most significant change was in attitudes and expectations.
