Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom

004 (2) Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my Personal Learning Network (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!

Historical Scene Investigation – “was designed for social studies teachers who need a strong pedagogical mechanism for bringing primary sources into their classroom.” These would be great lessons in the classroom.

Digital Storytelling in the Classroom – Educator Guide

Wacky Web Tales – mad libs for grades 3 and above

Books Should Be Free – free audio books in mp3, ipod, and itunes formats

The Map as History – “The largest on-line collection of animated historical maps. For students: a learning tool to increase comprehension and retention. For teachers: a ready-made teaching tool to add visual impact.”
