Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 04/18/08

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!

Write On is “Write On is a professional development project whose goal is to improve composition skills for grades 3-5 through a school-wide writing initiative based on the Four Square Writing Graphic Organizer developed by Judith S. and Evan Gould.”

Izzit offers “compelling educational DVDs, current events lessons, and unique games and contests.” I like the link to the free current events lessons.

Grammar helps fight bacteria interesting article about how biologists fight backteria.

SERCH – stands for Southeast Research Clearinghouse and their purpose “ is to promote space science awareness and enhance interest in science, math, and technology through the use of NASA's SMD mission data, information, and educational products.” If you click on the special needs section, there are some interesting science links there.
