Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 09/05/08

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!

A Room with a View Project – “will introduce digital cameras and photo share online programs to elementary teachers! Teachers and students will choose ONE window in their classroom (or one area on their campus) and take a picture each month and post to a photo share album online. They will include a description of what they see, plus some other interesting facts. It is a simple project, but an easy way for classrooms to share what they see each day with classrooms all over the world.”

O. R.E.O Project – “This year's project will invite classrooms to have each student stack oreo® cookies as high as he or she can and then average each student's highest result to achieve a final Class result.” Join the project because it sounds like fun! – video hosting site dedicated to education.

RTI Survey – “In March 2008, Spectrum K12 School Solutions and the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE) conducted a survey of K-12 district administrators to gauge the level of adoption of Response to Intervention (RTI).” It is a 14 page report but if you are interested in RTI, you might be interested in looking over this report.

Create a Graph – five different graphs to choose from

As always great links! The O.R.E.O project sounds like a lot of yummy fun. I'm not currently teaching but the stacking is something that I can try at home with my own kids. It might be fun to compare the difference between stacking mini and regular size O.R.E.O cookies.

gina: Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing about projects when we can use simple things and not have to pay out of the pocket for expensive equipment!
